Sweating...It's a Good Thing

Just got home from the gym and I really worked up a good sweat. Did 25 minutes on the elipticals, 15 minutes on the recumbent bike and 20 minutes on the weights. I really had to convince myself to get out of my recliner and go to the gym. I wish I had a magic pill that made me always want to eat right and want to exercise with reckless abandon. But alas, I have yet to find a pill that gives me will power.

I saw a tiny glimpse of 209 on the scale today, but I am not sure it will stick around. I know my eating had been a little screwed up with the holidays. I am going to try to be a little better about no snacking and listening more to my band. Lately I tend to get tight after a bite or two then sort of force the foods down, knowing I need to eat just to get my caloric needs. Sometimes it backfires and I slime and other times I feel like I am cramming food down and that can be a bad habit, leading to overeating. I still have to think about eating right every single day, ever reminding me that the band is not a miracle cure, but just a tool I need to use to the best of my abilities.
