Weigh In - 71.8 kgs

I actually weighed myself yesterday but didn't get a chance to update. Arrrggh! I've been eating far too much. I don't know what it is but I'm in love with food at the moment. Even when I'm not eating, I'm ogling fattening foods at the supermarket or on cafe menus.

One of my problems is that I start havng treats but then I do it so often it becomes a habit so then I have that and more treats on top. I started having an ocassional mini muffin at the coffee shop near work and now i have a mini muffin every day. I've got to cut all that out.

The other thing I'm cutting out is BAD food. I know some people say there is no bad food - just everyday food and treat food, but seriously some food is just plain bad - not because of the calories but there is no reason for eating it other than it's there. The other night, my sister and I went out for coffee and the cafe had the most fab looking cupcakes. How could we resist? But when I started eating mine, it was stale and not at all enjoyable. Still I ate the whole damn thing. What I *should* have done was send it back. Why the hell should I pay for (and eat) something that is substandard? That's what I'm going to do next time.

Yesterday I did a 14 km run. Well I ran a lot of it, probably walked about a third. Every single step was an effort and I had to push myself but I'm glad I did it. I was very sore last night but instead of staying home and resting, I went out to see some bands.

Sub standard food is SO not worth it. I would rather have small and divine than plentiful and sub standard.
Well done on pushing yourself for 14 kms - you're still a machine!!
Have a great week.

if you are running 14km in one go, I think you can have a muffin every now and then :) however, don't make a daily habbit of it because then it isn't special anymore.
Well done on the run. :)
I had a bad eating weekend too... the hazards of having a greek aunt who can cook :(
