Ok.. so I am still bummed not to be seeing at least a little bit of a loss.. but I think I know the problem. Portion Control. I did farely well yesterday.. at least I thought I did until I remember what I had for dinner. A heaping plate of shrimp linguine with 2 servings of broccoli. It was very healthy.. but I ate enough to feed 2 people.. maybe even 3! Aaaack. So today I really need to pull out the measuring cup and start measuring. I found this :
Meet yourself half-way.
You can lose weight and still eat your favorite foods! Just decrease your portion sizes by half. For example, if you are used to eating a whole deli or sub sandwich at lunch, just eat half and supplement your meal with raw veggies on the side and finish of with some fresh fruit. Then wait to see if you're still hungry. If you pause after eating the first half and allow yourself a few minutes to feel satiated, you just may find you're too full to eat the other half anyway.
That might help a little. If I can remember to pause after eating half of what is on my plate to see if I'm still hungry.
I ran another 1.15 miles this morning. This makes 5 days in a row, 5.5 miles, 1hr and 36min of running this week! Thanks to CoolRunning I can keep track of everything. It makes me feel better when I can write down and keep track of my achievements..and baby, these are some awesome achievements!! I plan on running tomorrow morning and then take Sunday off. Next week I start week 2 of the C25K program... yippee!
