I know for sure I’m going to add back in some snacks. One between breakfast and lunch, most likely nuts, that’s what I used to do and it worked fine, and one after work before dinner. That’s the time I call the starving hour. I generally eat lunch around 11:30 so by 3:00 I want to eat like no body’s business. We used to eat dinner really late but now that Scott gets home earlier we can eat around 5:30 or 6:00 if I get it done on time. Maybe I’ll also some kind of healthy snack after dinner. I don’t think eliminating having snacks is a very good idea. I like the idea of several small meals instead of eating 3 larger ones. I think saying “eat until you’re stuffed” like this one does is not such a great idea.The other day I was doing laundry out in the garage and I was thinking to myself about how I’ve finally managed to get the laundry under control and how I feel so much better. Better than what? Well better than I have felt for months. I knew I was depressed before but now that the fog has lifted I can see just HOW depressed I was. Which of course was a big reason I gained some weight back this year and kind of slacked off on my running and working out. When all you feel like doing is laying on the couch not much else gets done eh?
Anyhow, I’m so glad I started doing my runstreak. Today will be day 85 and I don’t even feel like quitting yet. It was rough at first but now I look forward to my runs even though sometimes it’s a pain to change my clothes and go out. If I don’t feel like running a lot I’ll just run a mile. Knowing that something is only going to take me 10 minutes or so makes anything bearable.
