Things are good - we partied very hearty this weekend, with friends. I had an amazing workout on Friday morning, ran 3 miles, did 1 hr of yoga and lifting. I was ready for the weekend. I made a Passover Brisket, which won rave reviews.
So eating this week - it's been OK. I know I'm eating less than I used to. I find that I am much more satisfied when I eat real food, in smaller portions. Eating a huge bowl full of salad is really good, it just takes work for me to feel satisfied.
Satisfaction is a huge issue - I find myself eating fast, looking forward to the next thing, but not really enjoying each bite. So it's an ongoing struggle. Yesterday, instead of having a salad, I got a veggie pizza for lunch. I had some and loved it, took the rest home and shared with the fiance. I was much more satisfied than usual, when I'm trying to DIET, which ends up with me eating more, probably, cause I snack.
It's the deprivation - is he/she GETTING more than me? Why should I have to cut down? Why can't I eat all that yummy stuff? It's an awful feeling, when I know I'm not really deprived at all, compared to many people on this earth.
The great thing is that working out regularly is the way to go. I'm loving my time in the gym, going running was really awesome - I've never gone 3 miles with such ease either. My legs are shaping up, I can tell.
The fiance has agreed to go on South Beach with me after 5/8. I know it's good to diet together with him. We've done south beach before and it was great for both of us. I also like when we're eating together, for the same goals. And South Beach is great, because you're REALLY GOOD for 2 weeks. It's just long enough to count, and short enough not to drive you nuts.
Keep up the good life!
