I spent 6 hours driving (sitting) on Saturday and 6 hours driving (sitting) today. I have had little exercise since Thursday and I’ve eaten nothing but crap. Smart, huh?

I have apparently lost all control. I don’t know what happened to my motivation, but I’m having a really hard time staying focused on monitoring my eating. I’m very aware that I’ve been whining about this for weeks now. I’m just going to have to take it one day at a time. Tomorrow should be better.

I think that I’ve turned a corner when it comes to fast food. I used to eat fast food multiple times a week. Sometimes multiple times a day. Now? I just don’t want it. It’s not appealing to me at all. I feel completely turned off if I can see grease or if I wind up with that greasy feel in my mouth. It happened a couple of times this weekend and I just felt really horrible afterward. I know that I sound like a broken record. I know that eating the wrong kind of food makes me sick. I think the fast food portion of the lesson has finally sunken in, though. I chose to come home this afternoon to eat dinner here vs. stopping to pick something up despite being exhausted. I just couldn’t face the grease. A weekend of crap is enough. I may not be able to visit my family again until I’ve reached my weight loss goal.

I don’t typically count everyday activity as exercise, but I spent several hours cleaning out my mom’s attic yesterday. I carried things up and down stairs and hauled heavy boxes around and I’m counting it. I initially dreaded helping with this, but it turns out that I really enjoyed the physical activity. I had tons of energy and would’ve kept working had we not run out of things to do. I’m always caught by surprise when things like this happen. I know for sure that I wouldn’t have been able to do half what I did 45 pounds ago. I am very excited about my potential energy level.
