Weight is 122.4 today. Seems that just by living moderately and clean, that's my weight! I could weigh less if I wanted to up my activity to an athletic level (like training for a marathon or triathalon or mud run... Even if I took up a sport or joined Crossfit) or get SUPER strict with food (no chocolate, no sunflower seed butter snacks, etc).
But... I don't want that. I want my walks and my yoga and my hiking. I want a sweet treat once in a while. I like where I am at and I like being this weight :)
I tend towards obsessiveness and perfectionism... So when I hear about super athletic achievements, I feel like I should be pushing myself to do those things. But, I have to admit those things wouldn't make me happy. Sure, I feel really proud about having achieve something difficult, but I have to be honest with myself and realize it's just not something I want to do. At least, not right now- I, hopefully, have many years ahead of me and I reserve the right to change my mind!! :)
My dinner last night was a huge salad:
Mushrooms, a whole tomato, beets, snap peas and romaine. I hadn't eaten a Tonna vegetables during the day, so I made sure my dinner was pure vegetables.
Been eating a lot of fruit lately - yesterday: blueberries, cantaloupe, banana... It is easy, in the spring and summer, for me to overdo the fruit servings during the day and slide a little bit on the vegetable servings (fruit is more affordable and it taste great!). Got to keep an eye on that.
In the end, though, I always eat the minimum recommended amount of veggies. And if I eat an extra serving of fruit or so, but make room for it in my day- good!! It's all good nutrition and I don't have a super sensitivity to natural sugars (it doesn't cause my way to go up and it doesn't trigger binge feelings).
... How far I came from the young adult who ate sugar cereal, PB&J on white bread, Doritos, and cookies almost exclusively during the day! Now I am wondering if my fruit intake might be a little high, haha.
I think I have very little to worry about - I have developed the right habits and gotten my body healthy. I've even been maintaining my weight without tracking calories for about a month now I think!!!
Lots of work to tend to today, but in a much more relaxed fashion. I don't have to lecture or bring the dog to the vet or any appointments or anything. I just have to hunker down at my home office and get some stuff accomplished!
