I started a "Couch to 5k" program with a local running group. Yep, gonna feel some pain tomorrow but what a sweet pain it will be! I had been doing a C25K program that was on my phone on the treadmill at the gym but doing it with a group of people and knowing that people are watching, my competitive nature comes out and I refuse to give up. It's a helluva lot harder running outside than on the treadmill. Damnit. I really think if I stay away from the ice cream the scale will move since my band is super tight and can't over indulge on anything other than ice cream. While I was out "running", I kept thinking how badly I want to be able to say that I am a runner. I have never said that. I mean, gosh, how cool would it be to be able to find "enjoyment" from going for a run with a local running group? Weird concept right now but I hope to someday think that way.
Is it possible that my band may be too tight? I really can't eat much without getting stuck and/or throwing it up. Do you think that maybe I want to eat the ice cream because I can't get satisfaction from food? So, I try to get the food satisfaction from ice cream since it is the only thing that goes down with absolutely no problem? Or is my addiction to food so damn overwhelming that I am gonna have to fight like hell to get through this? If only they fixed my brain when they put the band in. HA! What do you think?
