Wasn't expecting my Summer to go like this so far, what happened? From June 11 until today the scale just told me I put back 13 pounds. It would seem I am doing something very, seriously wrong. I thought I was going to do the exact opposite and I didn't. Not sure why or how this went this way. I guess it does sometimes. Maybe I can fix it. I went to Yoga twice last week and I've been walking again. It's the eating. I haven't been able to control my eating or do the things I want to do about it.
It's Sunday, let's try to focus this week on food habits and write things down. I graze too much and I haven't been tracking.
5K today, it's just about time to leave for it too. I'll be walking it with my team, not running it for time.
Around 8pm I got up and decided to fill up my tracker for the day. That's 3 miles. I almost decided not to do it, after a 7 day streak what's the big deal about taking a day off? Well I wanted to see the tracker light up again so I got up and got it done. Takes me an hour to do it but it's done now. My 5K is on Sunday and I might be walking it with my team and not using it as a race. Well there will be others. My 5K in October has just been announced and I plan to sign up for it the moment online registration becomes available. That one I will do every year now. That's the time to come back and beat.
I've managed to light up my tracker for the past 7 days in a row. Today I even broke 10,000 steps since in addition to my work out I had to walk to and from the gym. Yeah I managed to get to yoga for my 2 classes so far this week. I'd like to go to Gathan's class tomorrow, that Body Conditioning class is key and he does have it 3 days a week, what could be better? I used to go a lot a long time ago when Anne Marie taught it and it was the Tues/Thurs 7pm slot. I was down at 147 when I was working hard back then. I can see that again. That was the first time I thought being 164 was over weight and I freaked out and did something about it. Now I'm trying to get back into the 160's and stay there. It's the eating, I'm still a pig.
I have to back to honest tracking and planning a day of food, I'm not planning so I'm grazing through the day. You'd think with all my love of organizing everything I'd be better at eating. Maybe I really do need to write up a meal plan for the day, check it off and stick to it somehow. I'll go back to that.
I got in just about 4 miles today again before lunch and that was good. It would be cool to get a gold medal for the week but it's not easy. I'll have to get a lot of walking in during the week. Too bad the SPAT really can't pick up cycling or one ride would do the trick for a gold medal every week.
My 5K is next week and my family doesn't seem that interested in going. I'll figure out how to get there myself and hopefully be able to get there early enough to run things back to my car before I run. It would have been nice to have my parents there to take pictures but if they're not it's okay too. I didn't get to train for it like i wanted to because of the kitchen remodeling project. The race is next week. I'll do my best. My October race for the Lindsay Bonistall foundation was announced recently to be Sunday October 26th. Already have it on my calendar, I plan to register as soon as it's open. That race I plan to do a lot better on. That was my first ever 5K last year, the day after my tracker came. That one I will really be looking forward to. Maybe I'll do some more in the area this Fall. I have to look some up.
No matter what happens tomorrow I am going to Yoga at 7:30. I've missed too much time with my practice and I need to make it a regular part of my day. Well not need to, I want to. Just haven't figured it all out yet. Ginny does have class 4 days a week. Tomorrow...I go.
I managed to get another walk in after dinner tonight and fill up my tracker. That put me over 40K steps for the week for a silver medal. I want to go for gold for next week. Never got one and I've had my tracker since October 26th. It's about time. I almost didn't go, but I did I can't believe it.
I went food shopping for good stuff today, lot's of fruits and veggies. Next up I get to the gym for some classes, I'm in need of some yoga.
