Since it now stays light until after 7:00, I went on a run date with my favorite little man.
The weather was cool, and there wasn't any wind which actually made me feel quite warm. The Churro Dog looked like he was having the time of his life for our 6.5 mile run (always melts my heart to see him so happy).
I think we're going to have to make run dates a regular part of our week from now on.
The skyline looked fantastic as usual. (Especially with the use of a filter app)
Saw these photos of myself from the Chitown "10k" I ran Sunday. All I could think was WHOA I look terrible! Hey! At least im not heel striking!!! The left phot was from the beginning of the race, the middle and right were from the finish- where you can tell how pissed I was at the course snafu. I also look terribly bloated while rocking a muffin top.
This week I've really turned around my eating and have been working to break the psychological connection I have with eating large amounts of food. (More food= more satisfying) I've found that I don't need nearly as much food as I had previously thought and it's scary and eye opening and awesome at the same time.
Breakfast! Ovomaltine! I got it in Brasil- it's basically crushed up chocolate malt balls with vitamins. It's awesome with rice milk. Yummmmm great way to start the day!
I feel that by eating significantly less than normal + whole non processed foods I have more energy, less fluctuations in mood, and feel great. I also have yet to actually feel hungry. Yesterday was the first day in a long time I didn't have a single snack. And I didn't miss it. I tend to eat out of boredom and am making a point to be very conscious of this.
With that being said, I do plan to enjoy the Chicago Beer festival tomorrow and sample many new and delicious craft brews, as well as have a wonderful Easter brunch at a swanky restaurant downtown. For me, food needs to be in moderation and be healthy and non processed 70-80% of the time, and indulge sometimes. I want to look and feel better. I'm the only thing getting in the way of achieving those goals.
Happy Easter from the saddest bunny ever!
What are your plans for this weekend?
Have you ever experimented with your food intake?
