Food Issues

kissmeimirishraceThis morning I ran a 4k race called the “Kiss Me I’m Irish Run”. 00700-01-2849-thumbI got up at 6am and went down to Westgate. It was a little chilly out so I put a big baggy shirt on underneath my race shirt. It made me look huge and disheveled. I ran a big part of the race but my goal was to run the whole thing and of course I couldn’t. I’m still working on my running. My legs get so tired. I can do about ten minutes at a time now. I have run 20 minutes once, but I haven’t been able to repeat that yet. Still working on it. It’s my dream and athlete goal to be a real runner. I want to run a 5k without stopping. Gotta keep pushing on. Keep working on it everyday.

I have had a craving for a Reuben ever since I saw the Arby’s tv commercial. My boyfriend said the Arby’s reuben taste like crap so I went on a search today for a good one.

In the process of doing that, I massively overate today and I’m trying to re-frame it into  the positive context of a refeed
I’ve been eating pretty much the same thing, day in and day out for about 6 weeks

oatmeal, egg whites, chicken, salmon, tilapia, green beans, potatoes, broccoli

every day

Keeping my calories at around 1200 and definitely less on some days

even on days when I ate somethig different, I was still restrained and tried to keep my calories for the day low.

I never felt satiated. I always felt hungry.

Today I just decided that I needed a break so I went to two different deli’s and had a Reuben at each, the most fattening sandwhich you can order. I also had a lemon bar, because lemon bar flavored gum just isn’t the same.

My calories for the day was somewhere between 2500 – 3000

I felt satiated and full and I don’t want to feel negative about it. I feel a sense of panic trying to creep in about how much weight I am inevitably going to gain because of my eating choices today

But I know I won’t gain like TEN pounds or anything, nothing that can’t be reversed, so I want to just feel happy in this moment. Happy and grateful that I have a full belly. I want to appreciate it today.

    Stay strong, we’ve all had those days where you get off track a bit but feel like the whole train’s been derailed. Next time when you cheat, think whole foods and try making the reuben’s yourself with fresh ingredients. You can go about it guilt free knowing your putting the best ingredients possible into your system rather than opting for a processed sandwich at a deli. Your story is truly an inspirational one and I hope you won’t let a little cheat day derail your progress. Keep on!

    Congrats! I was just searching around on blogs and found yours and saw you’re also in Arizona! I love running 5k’s and I was bummed I couldn’t do this one because I just had my wisdom teeth taken out a few days ago 😦 Anyway, congrats on your progress! Keep your chin up and your eyes on the prize!
