Despite the (IMHO) brutally cold weather, I slogged through my run yesterday. It was a short one--only 3 miles--so it went by pretty fast. But I kept checking my face during the run to make sure I still had some feeling left in it.
In terms of exercise, I am sticking to my program. My diet, on the other hand, hasn't been great.
I know my problem:
I cut calories in the morning. My first three meals of the day are fairly light.
Then I have a glass (or two) of wine before dinner.
Big problem. Big, big problem.
My inhibitions drop, my stomach growls, and I find myself scarfing down anything that will fit into my mouth.
It ain't a pretty sight.
So there's a two-prong solution:
1. Eat more throughout the day so I'm not famished at night.
2. Stop drinking the wine.
I know cutting back on alcoholic beverages was part of my 15 week program, but I just seem conditioned to have a glass after work. Odd how we develop these habits.
Anyway, I got into the habit of running and lifting weights. I can get into the habit of not drinking a glass of wine each evening.
