3/2/17 Exercised Anyway

And now I feel better – happy and energetic. I hit resistance twice today. First I didn’t want to go to the grocery store. Because of my social anxiety disorder, I usually go to the store very early. Today I had to wait until 7:30 for the recycling center/dump to open, so the grocery store felt packed when I got there. And a few people stared. It was a beautiful day, though, and once I realized why I didn’t want to go out, I decided I wanted to finish my errands and be out in the sun for a few minutes more than I wanted to avoid people. Later I realized I wanted to be able to log that I’d worked out more than I wanted to sit in my chair. And now I’m glad I exercised because it immediately made me feel better – after I finished.

Exercise

10 minutes of lower body strength and 10 minutes of walking.

Meals

Lunch, black bean burgers on lettuce wraps with Greek pasta salad, was today’s most photogenic meal. I made sriracha mayo for the burgers and just added macaroni to the leftover Greek salad.

Breakfast was oatmeal pancakes with apples, walnuts, and maple syrup. I’m still fiddling with the recipe.

Dinner was a baleada and an orange. My baleada had one slice of bacon and 1/4 avocado on a whole wheat tortilla.

For dessert I had a snickers ice cream bar. The picture was ugly but it was yummy.

Focus and motivate

I need to finish reading 6 articles. I already commented on sparkpeople and facebook weight loss groups. Also, confronting resistance and overcoming it builds momentum.

I feel more anxiety than usual tonight, maybe from going out? I usually don’t know what brings it on, but I’m so glad I exercised because it helps the anxiety. Every noise feels like too much somehow, and I feel on edge.
