Why the big breakfast? I wanted to fill up on fiber early today.
Brian and I went out to eat last night and we had such a delicious meal. But the problem with eating out is it triggers some kind of cravings in me. And that is all I can think about now. I dreamed that there was a large, gooey chocolate cake and I ate the whole thing by myself. Heaven.
When I woke up (at 3 pm!) I knew that I had to have a big breakfast, full of fiber, to off set the crazy cravings I was going to have all day. I knew I was going to want to eat all day long, so I made sure to get most of my DRA of fiber in my first meal. Which wasn't hard. The cereal, per 1/2 cup, has 9g. So I had roughly 12g in the cereal. And the toast? has 6g. That brings me up to 18g/24g for the day.
I'm doing pretty good on eating- fantastic really- I still have 'head hunger' where I am constantly searching for something to do besides eat since I am so bored.
Brian and I were talking last night and he finally said "it must be really hard to lose weight" and I told him, yes, it is. I told him while I didn't think I had an addiction to food per se, I really enjoyed eating, I enjoy cooking, and I am good at it, so it makes it hard not to eat all the time. I told him its kind of like a recovering alcoholic working in a bar. It just isn't going to be easy.
He then expressed his thoughts on my progress and what I needed to do next. He totally backed me up on WW and said that I wasn't allowed to quit (as if I wanted to?) and that he would like to start running/jogging with me because he has really been wanting to. He was worried about my ankle though, bless him. I told him my ankle is fine and I know my limits, but I will run with him if he wants me to. We are going to go out tomorrow for our first run as a couple, and also going to start up C25K together.
I'm scared to death about this run but I think that it will be
Any tips for running or for tunes? I like 90's music and pop/rock/alt. You know, Train, the Wallflowers, Live, Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Nine Inch Nails, the Offspring, Lady Gaga, Pink, you know that kind of stuff....
I got to get going friends, I have to go to Brian's work. I promised I would visit on his lunch break :) Maybe he will buy me a diet soda! <3
