Even though we've had to eat out for every meal, I've been trying to keep my health in mind. I had a waffle, 3 hard-boiled eggs, and a glass of apple juice for breakfast. For lunch I had a grilled chicken, bacon and Swiss cheese sandwich (I know bacon is bad, but it's so delicious) with a salad! That's right, I resisted fries and incredible-looking onion rings and had a salad. Go me! Then for dinner I had pizza. I made myself stop eating before I was full and just wait. I wish I had done it sooner because after ten minutes or so I felt stuffed. I'm glad I stopped when I did.
Would you like some pizza on your pizza?I finished week three of C25k today. It was tough since I forgot to pack any exercise clothes and ended up running in my sleep shorts and a t shirt. It was raining and cold which actually made me want to run more in order to stay warm but I stuck to the program. After my run I felt like I had conquered the elements. I like the rain or shine exercise mentality. It really makes me feel like I've accomplished something.
I got some incredible responses to my last post. I talked about my inner critic and how I need to make "snackrifices." I rely a lot on your comments when I'm doubting myself. The comments from the last post really motivated me to keep going. I'd like to share a couple of them.
Wow. There are so many really good things in this comment. My favorite sentence is "Don't ever let food just happen to you." I'm in control of my food. Not the other way around. A few of you added that it's not easy to immediately jump into this mindset, but it's something to strive for. As someone who's had an unhealthy relationship with food my entire life, I'm the first to realize this. I'm going to strive for it and I'm going to enjoy the food I put in my body.

man, I am all too familiar with that inner critic. Some days she just haunts me.
There is no cookie cutter way to be successful here. We all have to choose the path that works for us and it sounds like you're doing just that. Hang in there!
I really appreciate your support. I often wonder if I'm doing anything right and just need a reminder that my journey is my own and I need to find what works for me.
Thanks to everybody who commented. You managed to turn around some serious self doubt today.
