A slump? Is that a word? I am having a hard time being motivated to do anything. I am training for 2 5k's: one that I will run solo and the other I will run with my granddaughter and daughter. The weather has been too hot and humid; I canceled a few runs with my granddaughter because of the heat.
Yesterday, we had a heat advisory and so, I chose to make it a lazy day. I actually took a two hour nap. I guess that yesterday was most likely a recovery day. I am hoping that is just what I need to focus on a good time in the race this Saturday. I'll see...
I am making green smoothies more now and am noticing that my cravings for junk food seems to be lower and I have an increase in my ability to say, No, I don't want that." Yesterday, my hubby baked up some cookie dough that our daughter brought into the house and I did not have one cookie, and guess what? I survived!!!
However, my victory was short-lived because I ended up eating three packet of Sweet and Salty (nuts, seeds, raisins and M&M's). For some odd reason this batch has a lot of M&M's in them, or I just more aware of them. I think instead of buying the prepackaged I'll make my own then I can leave out the M&M's - those little things have too much of a bad thing in them and take away from the goodness of the snack.
My weight is going up and down but staying with in a 2 pound range -- it is on the downside whenever I make sure I stay hydrated (lesson to be learned here). Well, I am hoping to get outside and do some hill runs hopefully it has stopped raining and I get it finished before it gets too hot.
Have a wonderful day and don't forget to spread some Spark .
