The belly rules the mind.
Day one of my diet. Why is it so hard?! Like the quote says, the belly rules the mind. For fun let me spell that out for you:
- When my belly is hungry my mind is focused on eating
- When my belly is stuffed so is my mind, hence food comas
- When my belly gets organic food, heavy fresh fruits and vegetables then my mind is clear and energetic
- When my belly is round and plump, then that is all my mind thinks about
Yesterday I was feeling motivated, despite not having worked out yesterday. In my moment of motivation I seriously considered getting up to swim with my TRI club at 5:30 am. My Bug had different plans and crawled into bed with us at 3:00am. I laid her down in her own bed at 3:45 and low and behold the Duder crawls in our bed around 5:00am. I was not up to getting out of bed to swim in the dark. I did however make it to the gym tonight for a a short 25 minute elliptical workout, 40 minute yoga session and a good 10 minutes of abs. It was one of those perfect nights at the gym where I could have stayed for hours. I could totally be one of those gym rats that workout for 4 hours a day, but I do not have that luxury of time.
I have the day off tomorrow and will be hitting the gym with my girlfriend before getting things ready for my hubby's birthday. On the schedule: drop off kids at school, go to the gym, run errands, sushi lunch with Super Hubby, then a wonderful stew for dinner and maybe some cherry pie a la mode. Yes you just read that right, after all the "day one" of my diet business, I am talking about food and feeling so hungry doing it! Actually, sushi won't be that bad and I am making the stew so I am all about using fantastically good ingredients...I may have to skip cherry pie a la mode. Actually that won't be hard, I don't like it much, but it is one of Super Hubby's favorites.
What kind of diet do you follow? Convince me.
The Big Picture: I have 10 lbs on my body I am not super excited about, but I made pretty good decisions today and it is the small decisions that make the most impact.Why I Kick A$$: I was supposed to meet my friend for yoga and decided to get there early for some cardio. 25 minutes of cardio is way better than no minutes.
