I will walk 500 miles...

Well, 5 miles anyway. It took me nearly 2 hours, which seems pathetic but at least I had the treadmill on an incline nearly the entire time. I wanted to do a new Pilates/Cardio DVD but I forgot an important little something during my swim yesterday: sunblock. My chest, shoulders and back are in agony today. I am now white and fat and red all over.

Still not doing great on the eating thing. I had tortilla chips and hummus for lunch. One might ask why I have tortilla chips in the house and this would be a very valid question. I could say I bought it for H but he doesn't need tortilla chips, does he? And no one else brings food into this house. So, I am entirely culpable for having access to my poor lunch choice.

To make up for it, I'm having salad for dinner.

I'm also feeling fat from last night's dinner. I had a salad with light ranch to start (good choice), spaghetti with whole-grain pasta (good choice), tortilla chips (again - bad choice), an ice cream sandwich (bad choice) and yogurt covered raisins (bad choice considering how much I'd already eaten). If that sounds like a lot of food to consume in one sitting - it is! I can't even say I had really small portions, except for the tortilla chips (I only ate about 6). I was very full and to make things worse it was late and thus I went to bed too soon after eating. I can't even say it was because I was starving hungry that I ate so much cuz I'd had a really late lunch and was just normal hungry.

It's having H home. I don't know why, but I eat more when he's around. I've been writing about this in my diet journal but, while I can think of a lot of reasons for this, no real answer comes to mind.

Divorce is expensive, but possibly less so than the amount of money I spend on exercise DVD's.

  1. Ooh, sorry about the sunburn, ouch!!!

    At least it sounds like MOST of your dinner was healthy. Interesting that having your husband around triggers more unhealthy eating... might be worth spending some time untangling the thoughts and feelings that go along with that.
