April Fool's No Fool

Except for the fact that the scale decided to hate me (first at the gym and then at the dr. office), yesterday was pretty smooth regarding April Fool's (no pranks anyway). Got in a quick workout before the dr. appt, appt. went okay, got on the phone and was able to discuss some things regarding the new job, didn't sleep through class (always a good thing), etc. Standard.

Food log:
B: oatmeal w/ 1 tsp brown sugar and 1 tsp raisins
Snack: 1 granola bar
L: Tuna2Go, apple
Snack: pumpkin seeds
Supper: Tacos (3), prunes (2)
Snack: skipped (not hungry)

Workout: 30 min SS on Elliptical

I'm still working on the meals portions, can you tell? In the mornings I'm not hungry, but around 3 pm I'm ready to eat a horse. If I eat more in the mornings I can stave that off, duh. The scale is also headed in the wrong direction. At the gym it was 150.0, which is the scale I normally use and so reported with, but at the dr. office, I was sadly disappointed to see the scale stop at 156.2. Ugh. I REALLY wanted to see that 147 at least at the dr.'s, I was so mad when she had to flip the dealie to 150 and then skip up the numbers. If the 24 hr fast didn't make me eat like a hungry-man for the next 3 days, I'd do it again. However, what I really need to do is just start playing with what I am eating. It's obviously not doing it for me this time. I'm also thinking I need to start spending a little more time in the gym again. As if I hadn't been, right? Well to tell the truth, if you've looked at how often I've lifted in the past 4 weeks or so, you'd be disappointed. I've been lucky to get in 2 lifting sessions a week. And this week will be the same. Part of it? I absolutely do not like 2k4. There. I've said it. It's brutal, and I don't like it, and I'm not getting anywhere with it because I haven't been keeping up with the lifting schedule. I'm also so dmed ready to get outside, and the weather around here has left a lot to be desired.

Dang, I'm in a black mood today. I'll work on that! I'll likely post again tonight so I can get caught up with the blogs. You'll find me in a better mood!

Keep your head up carie, I know what you are saying with the steady increase in hunger throughout the day. I usually find it a struggle to eat something in the morning and then 3-5 hours later I'm just starving!

Even though diet is more important, try to stay focused on your lifting, from the sounds of it you hate it, but with time you may like it, if not just look at it like a challenge and don't lose to yourself!

You're exactly right - if you're starving at night it's because you haven't given your body what it needs throughout the day.

You already know this, but try packing a few side snacks - a bag of almonds, an apple, a bag of broccoli and carrots, SOMETHING.

One bad meal (ESPECIALLY at night!) will completely destroy your entire day. Hang in there!
