Lost one pound this week! Yay!
Looks like my 8 Week Challenge is paying off! ...That is until today. :/
This happened for dinner:
|This was first...I ate three before this. Then I ate these.|
|Korean Kimchi in a Hot Pot with a side of steamed rice.|
I may never be able to think of food like a sane person. To be truly healthy is not to think of food as good or bad, but as everyday, occasionally, and seldom. These are more healthy standards I think. Perhaps one day I'll be able to eat something filled with sugar and not immediately feel regret or feel that I need to workout soon afterwards. It's just not right. Truly the mental aspect of food, losing weight, and living a healthy balance is hard. I can only hope that I can teach any future kids that I may have that any food is not good or bad, but perhaps not something we should eat every day of the week. The truly sad thing is, that in the past, I would have thought this meal completely healthy. Compared to what I used to eat, it was! And that is a point for good.
Anyway. Tomorrow is another day. Still trucking on with the 8 week challenge of not eating complete crap (not that my dinner was crap, on the contrary it was very yummy, just a tad bit too much rice for right now).
Wanna see something scary?
On a good note, I ran yesterday for an hour with minimum ankle pain. It was stiff this morning, so I took another rest day and hope to get a small run in on Sunday and take my last longish run on Monday before my race on Saturday. I'm thinking 7 or 8 miles for Monday. Then taper time!
