Cue the Monkees! I'm a Believer

"Now I'm a Believer"!

Yesterday I went on a disasterous run - no fuel and no water = bad run!

So this morning I made sure to take care of both of those and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!  I had a 1/4th of an Arnold Sandwich Thin with a teaspoon of PB and a little bit of jelly and had a small glass of water and set out to do 3 miles.  I can't even believe how good I felt for the majority of the run.  I took a different route starting with a gradual hill and then flatness where as my other run had a lot of hills at first and I was worn out quickly then struggled the rest of the run.

I didn't make my best avg pace but it was second best by 2 seconds!!  This really set the tone for the rest of my morning and felt so good!

Just got a new book.....
Thanks Amazon for the image!
I am not far at all in it but one thing the author did mention is 'are you willing to change something, not everything' and this spoke to me because I always feel like I am changing EVERYTHING and sacrificing so much just to eat better.  One of the biggest things for me - the bingeing - if I could not do that it would be half the battle!
My goal is to in the next few days brainstorm about things that I can change.  They gave an example of:
No fast food     -      get a kids meal
So instead of being really strict and saying NO fast food you can have a kids meal which would be less calories and fat. 
I like that way of thinking.  I need to make changes and this seems do-able for me.

Food today:
     1/3 c oatmeal made with soy milk and water, topped with pumpkin butter, almond butter, almond slivers and granola.
     Iced coffee with almond milk
     Egg salad (made with vegan mayo and grey poupon) on sprouted grain bread with lots of spinach. 
     6 carrot sticks
     Mini loaf of carrot cake with pumpkin spice cream cheese
     Piece of pumpkin bread with cream cheese
     2 pc of dark chocolate
Not sure about dinner yet.
