On the plus side, I did hit the gym today, since I was scheduled for resting or cross training. I've "rested" every off day this week, so I decided it was time to get my butt in the gym, especially after today's awful eating. I only did the elliptical for 30 minutes, but I managed to burn 340 calories, so I hope that helps create a deficit of sorts. Probably not, but maybe it at least took care of the darn doughnut I ate before I left work. *shake my head*
I know, I'm pretty hard on myself. It's something I'm trying to overcome, but as they say, you will always be your toughest critic. And I tend to be very overcritical. It's my defense mechanism. If I criticize myself before you do, then I beat you to the punch and it doesn't hurt as much. (You, as in, you in general, by the way).
I guess the good thing about today is that I still have 4 days until weigh in to fix everything. I have two runs scheduled during that time as well, plus I hope to get into the gym at least one of the rest days. I looked for my 30 Day Shred DVD tonight because I thought I could do that on my rest days when I can't get to the gym, but it seems to have disappeared. :/ Oh well. I have a pilates DVD that I borrowed from a friend but haven't checked out yet.
