I donno why my period was so bad this month but I can't shake it. Probably because I started on my off days from exercise. My body just kinda takes that as a hint of ok time to be SUPER lazy. If I exercise when my period starts up i tend to take the time better. Scott has been buying fig newtons. Don't ask me why they are a sore spot for me. But when I need sugar, even fig newtons will call out to me. Ugh I ate like 12 of them yesterday lol It was bad and I felt so crappy for doing so. I even woke up feeling like BLEH. I was supposed to go run yesterday and It never happened.
Today has been better so far. Our snow has been melting very slowly. I planned all day I would do my long training run for the week today. Scott went out running with me and he picked our route. I am not sure why I let him do this its always a bad idea. He always picks hilly routes and he doesn't seem to realize they are hilly. He also needed to run further then I did. So we planned on going to my halfway point and I could run back alone. Well he took me to campus across all these busy busy streets and I told him I was not going back alone. On our way back we ran across train tracks when the arm of the train crossing started coming down lol The train was an Amtrak so it was bookin! Ugh that was scary! So yeah I think I will just run by myself and plan out flat routes. There is no point in training for hills when the half marathon is on a flat route!!!! I am sure he doesn't wanna go with me again either. I bitched at him nonstop about how stupid the route was lol I did get my 4 mile run in today tho!
Zumba was good tonight too! When I first started doing it burning 800 calories wasn't hard. The more I do it the harder reaching 800 calories becomes. I am getting way more used to doing it I guess. Now getting over 700 calories is becoming harder. Today I did 765 so that was good. The class is slowly dieing down, very very slowly. So I burned 1300 calories today. I gotta stay in my calories for the night. I will keep drinking my water. Hopefully my period will be gone by tomorrow and i will be able to eat like a normal human being again.
Scott and I are on week 2 of being vegetarians! He told me he saw a salad at work the other day and noticed there was bacon on it and he thought "ewww greasy" lol He said the longer he does this the easier its getting. We need to get some protein powder. Anyone have any suggestions on brands? or flavors? I heard vanilla was good. I hate that you have to buy it HUGE tubs and spend 10-15 dollars on it. I wish u could just try some and see what u like before u have a huge tub of something that tastes horrible.
