No Wonder

that so many people in our country are over weight. Eathing healthy in the beginning is hard. After being so random in my eating, I am always surprised at how hungry I am the first week or so of eating healthy and right. Portion control is so hard, but I have to remind myself that even though something is healthy if you eat too much you can still gain weight. I know that trick is to drink a lot of water and I will admit that that is something I haven't been doing enough lately. So, today was a pretty successful day. I am still a little hungry but in a day or two that will pass. It is ceraintly not because I didn't eat enough today. I was a little light on protein today, so I will make sure that I add more tomorrow.

On a happier note, I ordered these today. They will take some getting use to. and yes you just ride your bike right on top of the contraption and you stay still. I don't have many days until I will be pounding out 100 miles. I rode at the gym today as our weather here was not great. But as anyone who bikes know--stationary bikes are not the same. Maybe we will have a mild winter and I will be able to get in a few rides this winter. 13 weeks to go....

Urgh. I'm totally with you and I totally know. I really really wanted to eat some baked cheetos tonight. A lot of baked cheetos. I mean they're baked right? But no. I ate an apple instead. It was so not as good. But I'm so glad now that I resisted.

For me, the hard part is planning ahead so that I have yummy things in my house to eat that are healthy too.

The problem with fast food is that it is FAST!!!!!!! The times that I plan my menus are the times that I do better.

Good for you. I am proud of you. 100 miles. WOW.
