FOOD JOURNALS

Tomorrow’s the Unmasking and…

..my appetite is insatiable! I’m not hungry but boy I want to EAT! That’s the worst . It’s a classic case of "the munchies." I’m hoping by writing I can help curve it a bit. Tomorrow is the weigh in where I’ll finally peak at last weeks scale number. Honestly, I can’t believe I haven’t peaked. It’s not like me, Normally I can’t handle surprises. I can hardly contain myself when I buy presents for people. I almost died while planning the husbands surprise 30th. Yet, I have NOT looked at last weeks weigh-in number in fear it would affect my mood too much.

I’m glad I haven’t. I’ve felt great all week and the stupid scale didn’t "ruin" it for me. I’m getting back into my workout groove completing the first of MANY runs for my marathon training.

Speaking of, if you missed it, I published my training schedule up to the half marathon in May on this page. As I complete each day I’ll add a little note. I needed to see it from a calendar view. I’m not going to lie. It’s SCARY! My approach is to take it day by day, like everything. :) I also updated my Yearly Goals page, adding the races for this year.

So here’s the food journal for today. It’s not bad but I just want MORE! But I’m good. Not hungry, it’s just the munchies. It’s JUST the munchies. :)

PS Just a reminder… tomorrow the first scheduled chat of the year on BlogToLose! Hope to catch up with ya there!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I know the feeling…some of my daughters Whoppers in the fridge kept calling me as did some ice cream. I was proud of myself though…instead of getting mad at myself and eating more, I got back on the treadmill for some extra workout time to try to compensate for the unnecessary calories. Truly a non scale victory!!

    Hey Roni!

    I think it’s great that you’re training for a Half as well as a Full Marathon this year. I’m a fellow loser/maintainer (Went from a size 10 to a size 2, 40lbs gone for just about 3 years now) and have also become a runner after losing the weight– I’ve done 3 full marathons now plus a slew of other races here in NYC. I just wanted to offer my support – please feel free to email me with ANY questions about running and eating while running, and balancing a healthy “weight watchers” lifestyle while training, etc! Get ready to see some serious changes – not just in your body, but in your mind and spirit as well. The distance running will become time consuming, but well worth it. I know you’ll love it and I’m sure you’ll knock all your goals out of the park!!!

    Anyway, I think you are such an inspiration and I check your blogs for updates daily. You’re a rock star, mamma!!! Oh, and I’m glad we’re facebook friends too :-P

    It’s not just you, trust me. This week has been inexplicably awful.

    Oh well, at least it will give me something to write about next Monday.

    I feel like I am going through withdrawl from sugar and fat. Today has started out the best of any since the holidays. Maybe I’ve gotten over the hump?!

    What was is about yesterday? I was attacked by OREOS last night and went to bed feeling so bummed that I gave in! :( (I’m sure I polished off a whole entire row of them and washed them down with diet coke at 10pm, OMG) Even after brushing my teeth and using mouth wash, I still woke up with the after taste of OREOS in my mouth….YUK! May I never let that happen again. Todays a new day! :) Have a great one!

    Directed at reader Laurie. reading your post was awesome. you are awesome. you gave into the craving but then turned around and worked the extra calories off. that is beyond awesome. I always think about going jogging after a few beers to work of the calories, but somehow I just dont find it safe! ha ha. Really, I should jog first then drink :)

    Good luck with the weigh in tomorrow and looking at your number! For me, weighing myself last week and not liking the number was exactly what I needed to get my butt in gear. I officially weighed in at a meeting yesterday and low and behold, I am back to my pre-holiday weight!

    I seriously must have been retaining water last week ha ha!

    AND my munchies this week have been pretty rough. I have picked up crocheting again which has definitely helped. AND may I say that cherry tomatoes are an awesome snack when you just need to eat SOMETHING. I have a little baggie here at my desk at work.

    Same reason why I am not hoping on the scale before Saturday! I hope one day that freaking hunk of metal doesn’t penetrate my mood that propels me to binge eat… the way it does now… one day, one day it will happen, a girl can dream can’t she?
