Bee Happy Friday

Friday, July 25, 2014

Managed to get to the pilates class at 5:30p and get that exercise in before collecting DS yesterday. Came home and planned to go to bed early but that did not happen. Ended up going ot bed about 1 a.m.

Today is the next game for DS' soccer team - so will be attending that this evening. Did not go to exercise this morning but there is a small window before I have to go to the soccer game. It's just that between 5 - 6:30 p.m. it's really hot here. So the options are the gym or swimming.

I had a binge yesterday with some cookies. I had the urge around 1:30 p.m. and went to the supermarket and bought some bing cherries. I ate them but on the way to the gym around 5 p.m. I was ravenous and I had eaten everything I'd packed that day and drunk all my water. So I stopped before I got to the gym (grocery stores are always so conveniently placed) and bought some cookies - the box holds 12 and they have a milk chocolate covering. I had 3 before the gym. When I got home I was still hungry and I polished off the box. Dinner was 3oz chicken breast and a baked apple. But the cookies alone where like 1k calories. So that was about 90% of my daily calorie count.

I could do with a good lie in - but that won't happen before next weekend.

    Oh well, at least you got some exercise in to counteract the cookies! TGIF! I need to get a run in this morning and then tomorrow. Some weights today or tomorrow since I see my trainer on Monday morning. Sunday is my day with my parents, so I'll have to get something done in the morning before I head over there. Vacation is around the corner!

Tired Thursday

Thursday, July 24, 2014

DS' team had the 1st game vs Bermuda. They lost 4 - 0. His number is 10 and I learned that the Big Dogs wear 10. It was amazing to see him so animated and giving instructions on the field. He's nothing like that at home. There was good support for the team. The next game is Friday.

I am very tired this morning, so exercise is in the evening. I am going to try to go to the gym between 5p - 6p, so I can do pick up of DS at 6:30p. I am so tired that I don't feel like cooking, but tiredness also makes me snacky... I tend to eat when I'm not hungry. So I have to remind myself why I am snacking - I do a check and realize I'm tired and sometime it prevents me from eating the snack. Sometime it doesn't. At least it's 50-50. Trying to get it to 85-15 to not eat when I realize I am tired.

    Hang in there! I'm getting home late tonight from Denver and need to run in the morning - 3 miles and I know I'll be tired. But I will try. I don't want to run later in the day since I have to run at 6:30 on Saturday morning with my group.

    You have made a revelation there. If you are sleepy, food won't fix it. I hope you can squeeze in a nap somewhere in your day.

Hills reflect your personality

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Yesterday went for a run after work. I had to pick up DS at 6:30 p.m. so by 7p.m. I was changed and on the road. Started off pretty slow - took me about 1hr to warm up. I'm getting old, it used to take 30 minutes. Went up some hills and felt like I actually lifted as I went up as opposed to plodding up them. Got into this very important internal discussion -
"what does the way a person come down a hill say about their personality". This was deeeeep. I come down the hill - at the same pace I went up or do the flat. When I'm on the bike - I come down very slowly - pressing brakes throughout. My bike riding partner on the other hand - comes down the hill without brakes - he gets a thrill out of it. I had a GF who came down the hill and crashed. So we have conservative, impetuous and reckless.

Got up this morning and went running again. I have DS' soccer game this evening. It was a nice run - I had no more earth-shattering thoughts during this run.

Running brings clarity to life.

    I would be on the Conservative side myself with a little bit of daredevil. . Probably my age. I know how fragile our bodies are. emoticon

Glad you are getting your running in. I bet the views are amazing!

Ridin' in the Rain

Monday, July 21, 2014

I am exhausted today - I'm getting a bit of a headache - it usually means that I'm tired and I need to sleep. Another symptom of tiredness is grazing (eating food and I'm not hungry). I managed to stop it by coming on SP and logging my food etc...

I was not feeling like exercising today and had I not had to pick up DS from soccer at 8pm I'd gone home. But I went for my scheduled swim and came home and completed my Sparking.

Sunday, we went bike riding in the rain. It was fun and I actually came down this hill without walking. I mean it was really slowly but I usually get off the bike and walk down the hill because it's so steep. We did about 18 miles this time.
