I went for a walk this morning and it felt wonderful. Why am I trying to run when I feel much better briskly walking for an hour instead?? Viv made a good point today at our appointment. I need to listen to my body. If it's not ready to run more than three miles at a time, it's just not ready! I have this idea in my head of what my body SHOULD be doing and how it SHOULD look, but I never think to actually ask my body. Even if it's kicking and screaming at me, I tend to ignore it and actually get angry at it when it's not complying with my ideas.
I was weighed in at Vivs. I'm half a pound shy of my weight at my first doctor's appointment post-treatment. Dang. I don't really know what to think about that. I'm okay with it I guess. I'm not really feeling much of anything but acceptance. Yes, I'd prefer to weigh less, but whatever. I'm listening to my body now and my body says it would function better at a higher weight than my personal ideal. I still have aways to go before I reach my medical "ideal weight" but I'm a bit over halfway there. Amazing what five weeks can do to a person!
Veganism is most definitely still working for me. I don't think I'll ever go back. I have no desire to go back! I'm at the point where I just think of what I want to eat for the next day and if I put it into my app, the calories, protein, fat, and carbs are all near my target. I don't have to plan and rework it for an hour like I did five weeks ago. I think that's progress! Eventually I'll be able to not even keep track of what I eat and I'll just do it intuitively!!! YAY!
I'm at this health food store called Huckleberries, sitting in their cafe bistro area. I love their juice bar!! Today I got "Captain Carrot" which is carrot, banana, pineapple, and cinnamon. SO YUMMY!!! I really need to finish my weekly grocery shopping and go home. I have to get up at 4am tomorrow and so I need to go to bed early. But I'm so comfortable and happy sitting here :) It's nice to feel happy and content.
