Not so lazy Saturday

Yesterday was an odd day - I was just in such a weird mood.  I think most of that was due to the fact that I was supposed to go running with my friends at 3:30 and I normally run in the morning.  So, since I was waiting, I just felt yucky.  I was 133.8 when I woke up, which is good.  My mood just tanked in the afternoon, so I bailed on my friend and walked to the library instead, which is a 4.5 mile round-trip walk.  I ate well during the day, maybe a bit too much but very healthily.  Then, I got home and my roommates had people over.

Instead of just being satisfied with a diet soda (thank goodness I had enough sense to not waste me calories on alcohol) I had chips and guacamole - my roommate made it just for me, since she knows I am vegan and trying gluten-free. Then, someone made some sort of fried green bean thing.  I had a bunch and there is no way they are any healthier than a french fry.  I felt disgusting when I went to bed. I chugged two glasses of water in hopes that it would help balance out the awful amount of food and sodium I had consumed.

This morning, I was 136.2 when I first woke up.  I deserved it and my eyes teared up when I saw it on the scale.  Instead of losing all hope, I drank a little water and ran 8 miles.  I was 133.8 upon my return.

Food today has consisted of a relatively hearty breakfast - 3T steel cut oats, 1T dried cranberries, a handful of hazelnuts, and a chopped up asian pear with a glass of soy milk.  I had a few snap pea crisps and then a late lunch, just now - broccoli slaw, tofu, kale, 1/2 an avocado in an orange marmalade/tamari/rice vinegar sauce.  Nothing too fancy, I have to cook in my microwave.  Basically, all veggies for lunch, which is good.  I may have a mango ice pop for a snack later and if I feel hungry, a simple salad for dinner.  I'm trying to be normal and not count up all of the calories.  I know I burned somewhere just shy of 900 calories on my run, so I am going to do my best to just hydrate and not stress too much about my eating.

It is amazing how sometimes we have really good days, and sometimes really bad ones.  I am glad today is one of the better days I've had in a while.

I think I am going to spend the rest of my afternoon drinking tea and knitting.  It's chilly and overcast and I honestly do not feel like going anywhere.  Perhaps if my boyfriend was here I would want to go walk around town or catch a movie... but he is not :(

I hope everyone is already enjoying their weekends.  Thank you all for your support, as always.

Your diet today sounds wonderful. You're doing great, love. I'm very impressed by your dedication and your unwillingness to give up!

Also, I'm ridiculously jealous of your eight-mile run. I really have to get back to running daily...

We're having the same weather where I live, and tea and knitting sounds like the perfect way to spend the rest of the day. As soon as I finish my work, I believe I'll pick up my yarn as well!

Stay strong!
