Oh Friday, you are wonderful.

Friday, October 08, 2010

Friday = laziness. I love Fridays. Oh yes I do. Putting on sweatpants when I get home, eating an easy dinner, time to catch up on Sparking, sitting on the couch watching mindless TV... it's a wonderful day.

My nutrition has not been that wonderful. Not horrible, but not wonderful. Sure, I've been eating things that haven't been too bad... but I've also been eating too many sweets when I'm not actually hungry.

So to coincide with the 10-10-10 challenge at my gym, I am going to get busy putting up healthy eating reminders around the house. It's so easy for me to think about eating healthy when I'm reading your blogs and getting motivated, but I can't click on a blog as I'm digging into the box of cookies. But I *can* look at a motivating quote or picture on the cabinet and decide if I really am hungry.
Ten weeks. Ten dollars. Ten pounds. Seventy days. I can do it.

- stay within calorie range 60 of the 70 days. A one hour massage costs $60... coincidence? I think not. So if I can stay in range 60 of 70 days, I will get a massage at the end of the ten weeks.
- Intensity class + Carrie = a totally run-down me for DAYS. I took the class again on Monday, and it took me until today to recover from it. I just read a thread on the RR page about fueling after a long run, and I feel like the class (60 minutes of plyometrics) is leaving me exhausted and not fueled. I have to figure out how to fix this. Gatorade might be in my future...
- I have come too freakin' far to settle now. Yes, I've been saying that for a long time, but I have to start believing it now.

I am working on a calendar for the next 70 days. I think if I see them all out in front of me, it will be easier for me to stick with my plan until 10 weeks are over.

This weekend I'll be in the kitchen cooking up some soups for the freezer and marinara sauce. I need more veggie stuff and more easy meals. It's definitely soup season, and we got SO many wonderful veggies for soup. Leeks, bok choy, kale, carrots, squash... time to put them into use!

    I've got my rest day on Friday now, and I'm liking it. Though it makes Saturday a wake up and run day, and that used to be nice to just lay in bed.

I LOVE soup season!
