i had a larabar last night before bed. i guess the deficit i created on wednesday night backfired, because i ate that much extra yesterday. live and learn?
having a running "budget" was almost a relief to me this morning. i have 10 mi/week of running, and i ran 3 mi. on wed (my week will go wed-tues because that's when i started). and if not for this budget i would have certainly pushed myself to go for a run this morning. but really, i wanted to stay in bed, and i'd much rather go running in 65° weather tomorrow than in 45° this morning. and i know tomorrow i will enjoy the run.
the only issue is that i'm feeling quite guilty for eating the massive bowl of oatbran i just prepared, because i feel like i didn't "earn" it. hmmm didn't know people had to "earn" their food. i'm having a hard time believing i can eat this for breakfast and maintain a healthy weight. but i guess until c. tells me otherwise...
- 1/2 c water, 1/2 c vanilla soymilk, 1/2 large banana
- added some dried cherries while cooking
- topped with a T carob chips and 1 T "white chocolate wonderful" pb
i feel incredibly guilty now. i'm going out to lunch today with my team. i'll be OK but it's a stress i would have preferred not to have. plus the boss is making her famous "chocolate mayonnaise cupcakes"!?! to celebrate a coworker's bday. sounds quite disgusting actually. i'll decide later if i want one... i'm not going to make any decisions based on others.
