Pot Roast and Guilt!

I made Pot Roast for dinner yesterday with baby carrots, red potatoes, and onions. I had it in the crock pot and it made the house smell so yummy. Which was a problem because I felt hungry all day smelling it. I didn't overeat or anything but man I wanted to eat everything in sight while I was smelling it cooking. It turned out super delicious. It was also a major win on my part not to go back for a second helping because I wasn't still hungry. It was because it tasted so good and I wanted to keep eating it.

I totally battled feeling guilty yesterday for taking the whole weekend off from exercising. What a dopey thing, but I couldn't help it. All day I felt like I should've been making up for having Saturday off too. I'm going to have to work on that because I felt better this morning than I have for a few days.

But it's back to the grind tonight. Hopefully the treadmill will be available to do some running!

Its a good sign when you feel guilty about taking a couple of day's off. I usually read my own body and I can tell when I am getting irritated and need to exercise.

We don't eat beef, but I get that same 'munchy' feeling when I am cooking beans all day.

*tummy grumble*

Turkey -- it's more of a "quitters" guilt. Like I'm less because I'm dropping back a day. Especially silly, when I feel better and was able to hit my workout harder and go farther last night.
