So, I work Saturdays. Saturdays are really really really slow. I've been watching tv and stuff on the computer at work (hooray for am.azon instant streaming).. but .. I've noticed since being banded... I eat when I'm bored. I'll be siting here, doing nothing, and suddenly thinking "i could go buy some sushi at king soopers" .. or whatever boredom noshing food you can think of. Someone has a fundraiser box of $1 candy bars up on the counter. I have availed myself of a twix or two. Heck, today I ate my meatballs (thank you costco!) .. and 5 minutes later I was planning a run to go buy some sushi. After a week of meatballs I KNOW that my 5 meatballs and pasta sauce is enough. I just need to wait a few minutes for the hungry to go away. AND there's the fact that I've been really good all week, and headed towards a loss, and these Saturdays are messing up my Sunday weigh in! dang it!
I think I need to bring in my knitting again on weekends. Put something to do in my hands. Watching things is nice, but it's not keeping me occupied enough to keep me from wanting food. It'd be nice if willpower was enough, but if that were the case, I'd probably not be here in the first place.
I've got a doctors appointment set up for Tuesday morning to talk about this heel pain. Of course that means today after making the appointment, it feels way better. Monday I have an appointment at the gym for a "fitness orientation" .. basically a walk-though of how to use/where to start with the machines, and a lot of "if you buy training packages this is how I can help you" . I plan on taking notes, hopefully I can get him to help me find a starting weight to use. And since I seem be sharing my appointments in reverse order, tomorrow morning is Zumba, and tomorrow afternoon is waxing the girly bits!
So plans. Long term, stop being bored! bring some knitting, coloring, gameboy, something!!! to get my mind of boredom eating. short term: appointments galore! I hope everyone else has a great long weekend!
