That's right! I didn't use the elliptical tonight! (I went at night, too! Switching it up!) I thought I would try the treadmill again, it's been FOREVER since i've been on one of those.
Okay, but here is where I ask you for some advice:
Can you jog on a treadmill? I am terrified that I am going to have one of those horrible/hilarious accidents that end up going viral on youtube. So does anyone have any tips?
I think right now I am just going to keep at 3.5 (the main speed I was walking) and work my way up? Maybe in a few weeks i'll be able to jog? I hope so.
However, I did have a piece of leftover pumpkin pie at dinner (which is my absolute favorite food during Thanksgiving, maybe even my favorite food ever. I adore pumpkin EVERYTHING!) Now, I really didn't have a lot for breakfast this morning...which is probably why I even got the pumpkin pie in the first place. You know how they say if you don't have breakfast or have healthy snacks throughout the day you begin to crave unhealthy fatty foods later on? Couldn't be truer. So...am I disappointed in myself? A little. Should I be? I don't know. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite things and giving it up seems like a bit much...I don't think I could do that to myself. And I know that on Weight Watchers (which I am not participating in, but I used to! Post coming up soon!) they tell you not to deprive yourself because it only leads to frustration and overeating.
However, I really can't do the alternative at school...which is modifying unhealthy meals to make them more nutritious...at school, you get what you get. There's no modifying. I don't know what goes into the meals, how many calories i'm eating...nothing.
Either way i'm not counting this as a loss, i'm counting it as a lesson.
Don't skimp on breakfast.
Don't deprive myself.
ATTEMPT to find healthier options of my favorite meals. (I already put it a request for whole wheat pasta!)
*Side note- the only reason breakfast was so lame-o was because they were setting up for the HUGE Thanksgiving lunch and poor breakfast...(and poor Tanya) had to suffer.
