The problem with today was eating out and having bites of my sister's food. There is no way to accurately figure out how many calories I had. It is driving me crazy because I had so much control over knowing the exact numbers ever other day this week. I feel good about my guesses though and I did run this afternoon...
Bear opened another new account today (yay!) so he wanted to go out to our favorite diner for a mini celebration. He noticed today that my clothes looked big. I don't know if his mom said something to him about it or if he noticed it on his own. I think we are ok though because I just explained to him that I am running again and getting in shape and that I am not doing anything drastic. He seemed ok with my explanation. I keep rationalizing to myself that I wasn't lying to him. It is true that I am getting back in shape, and this diet is a lot less extreme than other things I have done so I am not being a bad gf, am I?
I ate a decent amount of my salad at dinner and I could tell that made him happy. He is so amazing, I wish he didn't worry about me so much.
I work 9-3 tomorrow so just dinner with fam or Bear. I am definitely hoping to get another run in too. I pushed myself harder today than I have in a while and it felt great. :)
Stay strong and skinny,
love love love,
p.s. I am glad I am not the only harry potter lover out there ;)
p.p.s. Sometimes, when I am in a good weight loss flow, I get so scared to weigh myself. I am having trouble sleeping tonight because I am scared what the scale will say in the morning. I know I can't do anything about it at this point, but I am still really nervous. The nighttime turns me into such a scardy cat.
