Well, yesterday was great! I was suppose to eat 1700 but finished off the day at 1490. I wasn't hungry, just ate pretty clean and had a great workout. I'm pleased with myself....although i have to admit, i am a little worried...
After eating Mondays cake and pizza treat I instinctively thought "I have to get in a hard workout tomorrow to make up for this"
Is this wrong? This mindset of eating crap then making up for it with a good workout. Should I be concerned?
Yesterdays workout was 1:30mins long...after about 45mins i admit, I was ready to quit! My knees were aching and i had that burnt feeling. Ya know, that feeling when your body is saying "ok, thats enough already!" The only thing that pushed me through the workout was that bad meal! I kept thinking "I have to finish this workout, i ate to much junk yesterday, i have to finish!" That was my goal. To finish.
Hmmm, do I have a problem? (gesh, another problem...like i ain't crazy enough, ;-)
But when i seriously sit down and think about it i say "no", yesterdays workout doesn't happen that often. I had a goal when i started the workout.... to simply finish. Maybe im over analyzing this? Heck, who am i kidding...i AM over analyzing! Besides, I love working out! Its a passion of mine! I don't do it just to lose weight and build muscle,those are the added benefits! I do it to relieve stress and anxiety. And the high after a workout is one of the greatest feelings in the world! Ok, im over analyzing!
And speaking of workouts, i just finished a 40minute power walk followed by a stretch/pilates dvd. Ahhhhh, thats better, now on with my day :-]
