RUNNING = EATING.
That is the pattern. Since my 35 miler, I have not been doing well on weight watchers. That would be two weeks of not doing good on weight watchers. This is a dang pattern. The more I run the worse I eat. I truly don’t believe that my body “NEEDS” a lot of extra food and especially bad food, but I think it is me telling myself, “Oh I can have this because I bet the running will make up for it”. I hate this pattern. I am scared of this pattern. It is true, the last two weeks have been very big running weeks for me but that does not mean it is time to just eat whatever. I still think that I might be ok at my Tuesday night weigh-in but I am not sure nor am I confident about it.
Nights and weekends
I have really had to make a conscious effort to count my points at night and on weekends lately. Sometimes I do ok and other times I don’t count at all and just end up “estimating”. I don’t like this at all. I don’t like feeling a little out of control with the food.
Groceries and Organization
One of the biggest reasons for the struggle lately is that fact that I have not taken care of myself in the area of preparation with groceries. As you know I have been busy working in the yard and running so I have not been to the grocery store for a long time now. I went yesterday and stocked up on lots of good healthy foods. I also came home right away and prepared a good portion of my daily lunches for the week. This should help me get back on track with my points and monitoring.
Do you make the excuse to eat more or badly because you had a big exercise day?
Do you have a hard time with counting points/calories at night and on weekends?
Does grocery shopping and planning help you succeed?
