“Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”
Let’s just say things did not go as planned Monday. I had planned to get up and go for a run outside after I got munchkin off to school. I had planned on getting to class on time. Neither Happened.
I overslept and ended up having to take my daughter to school instead of her ridding the bus which took an hour away from my morning time before class almost. Desperately wishing and almost deciding to push my workout off till after class and just do the gym instead of outdoors. Then I remembered I had an appointment with her school so that really wouldn’t work either. I also knew that deciding to do it after she got out of school and the likelihood of actually driving back into town my chances were not good. I decided to suck down some coffee, grab some breakfast, crank some tunes to get me going and Just suck it up and hit the gym before class.
This was still going to cut my time short so I also decided to skip my first class, all the notes get posted anyways and I cant understand her accent. I get to the gym, things are going great. I push through 20 minuets on the elliptical and move on to the bike…this is where it all came to a screeching halt. My phone goes off and says “nutrition test 10am”, wtf that said today, why am I just now getting that alert, surely I read it wrong. NOPE, not only had I somehow managed to spaz and completely forget I had a test Monday and not studied now here it was 9:57 and I was still at the gym….sweaty and stinky im sure. This was not good. I run grab my bag out of my locker and head to school. Thankfully I was close and only 15 minuets late and still able to take the test! I think this lack of sleep this past week is catching up with me and I have begun to loos my mind lol .
Oh well…all is well that ends well. While in no way shape or form did my plan for my day happen everything got done. I took my test, I burned 600 calories and had another awesome Huge Jass salad for lunch.
(About that salad, I’m telling you they have never tasted so good! Who knew replacing all the cheese and ranch dressing with healthy yumminess could be so good!)
Back to the intuitive eating I am trying …I have noticed that I am staying full longer and craving healthy goodness vs. junk now. I have also noticed that when I do start to get hungry again I go from hungry to ready to gnaw my own arm off and eat it starving in about 5 seconds. I feel like maybe I am experiencing true fullness and true hunger for the first time instead of hunger because I'm sad/happy/bored/tired. I know I'm not supposed to be looking at the scale really right now starting this but I cant help it and so far its holding steady, no gain. Hopefully with my workouts back on track ill even see a loss!
