What Happened When I Weighed In

Well, my nutrition this past week, in my opinion was less than stellar. I had pizza 3 times! Granted it was one 'slice', but their slice is actually about 2 large slices. I was hungry for it. I planned my running route to start and end at the local pizza place one day - hey - just telling it like it is. And I thoroughly enjoyed my cheese pizza.

And 2 more times this past week, I enjoyed more cheese pizza. So yeah I can't say that my nutrition has been on point. But I can say, that I think I'm getting better at listening to my body. I know in time I need to transition some of the things that I am eating to healthier choices. But truly small changes are working for me, and that's what I'm sticking with.

With last week's Weigh in (Why I Am Weighing In) I was at 127.8lbs. Since I started weight training, and since I had pizza 3 times this week, I didn't really know what to expect when I stepped on the scale. I was prepared to see an increase, but I also told myself that a number was not going to define me. This is a learning process, and I am here to learn.

This week I weighed in at


126.6lbs

Yep, I am as shocked as you are ;)  Truth be told, as I'm trying to listen more to my body, I'm eating things I wouldn't normally eat.  (Oatmeal that I've always loathed now tastes yummy. I've eaten whole grain brown rice that I would normally bypass. It was super yummy.)



I'm eating at all hours of the day.. like seriously... 8:30pm or even later I've been eating fruit with a handful of peanuts. One day I took two pieces of whole wheat sandwich bread, sprinkled it with garlic salt and put it in the oven under the broiler. I sliced some tomatoes and a mozzarella cheese stick to go with it and ate it at 8:30pm. I was criticizing myself for eating so late. But the truth was, I was hungry. So I ate. And this was what I was wanting to eat.

One day I cooked a thin chicken breast and a baked potato at 10am. It was what I was hungry for. And instead of making myself  wait until lunch time, I ate when I wanted it.

I've been tempted to put into MyFitnessPal my food that I'm eating. But I'm afraid that it will mess me up.. either the number will be super high... or super low... and the reality is.. it's different every day. Sometimes I feel like I eat all day. Some days I feel like I don't eat as much. And I don't want to get hung up on a number. So for now, this is what I'm doing.

And seeing the scale drop another pound makes me think that I'm on the right track... especially when I begin to make even more healthy swaps.

For such a long time I felt like a prisoner with calories, eat this, don't eat that, good food, bad food, fast, don't fast, carb cycle, no carbs.. and the list goes on and on.

Now, I feel amazingly free.
