NROL - Week 5 - Monday

No formal cardio today. I'm having a really "off" day. I'm not all that hungry, but I don't know if I'm "punishing" myself for yesterday's dinner. So, I might be trying to convince myself that I'm not hungry. I don't know.

I'm currently reading Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes. I have no plans to review it here. It's good reading, but it's heavy (and not because he says dietary fat is a good thing). I like books written in simple terms. This stuff feels Shakespearean.

And WOW! I just realized that the NROL Break In workouts only go 4 weeks, so I have this week off from weight training! That's fantastic because I have heavy duty house cleaning to do and could use every second to get it done! I have no idea why I was thinking it was 6 weeks long. YAY!!!!

9:00 AM - coffee w/ cream & Splenda

12:30 PM - homemade protein shake, pumpkin carrot muffin; eaten on couch

2:10 PM - pepper jack cheese; eaten at desk; I'm grazing today

3:10 PM - broccoli w/ mayonnaise & mustard dressing

5:50 PM - mozzarella cheese; eaten in kitchen; just something to hold me over until dinner

7:15 PM - hamburger on roll w/ mustard & ketchup, green beans; eaten at dining table; my husband makes the best burgers - smoked over chunks of hickory!

Hi Becky,

I just want you to know that I think you are fantastic for going a whole month without bingeing...I am so inspired by you!!

I know the weight might not be coming off as fast as you'd like it, but remember that when it comes off slower that means you're much more likely to take it off and KEEP it off! I have faith in you, but you need to have faith in yourself!! You're amazing...seriously. :)

Did I see that right that you live in the Outerbanks? I'm also in NC!

Thank you, Hayley. I do still feel guilty for the buffet Saturday night, but I don't want to beat myself up over it. I could have so easily eaten everything in that dessert case LOL

Yes, I am on the Outer Banks! Do you ever get out this way?

I have not yet been to the Outer Banks (we just moved here a couple of years ago) but I've heard nothing but good things about it, so I'm hoping we'll go one of these days! Or maybe next summer?

I know what you mean about buffets, though...I am not so good at controlling myself and I struggle with the exact same thoughts. There's a part of me that says I should refrain completely because one bite leads to another...and then another, etc, but then I tell myself that I shouldn't deprive myself and that I DON'T need the whole dessert tray...but honestly, I really do better when I limit myself from eating sugar. I truly feel like I have an addiction!
