123 days left to train!
I had a good day and a bad day today. Let me explain. The good thing about my day was that I really tried to enjoy every minute. I literally took the time to stop and smell the flowers in my garden, I remained calm all day, took my nap, and did a ton of gardening, including planting 2 trees. My therapist will be very proud when she hears that, because the last time I saw her she seriously got mad at me because she says I don't "live the present moment"! She thinks I can't enjoy the little things in life. She's right, but I'm working on it, and I think I did great today!
The down side to my day was that I ate way too much! There was a stop at McD's for lunch, and then a minor detour by Dairy Queen for a blizzard... Yikes...
I suppose I have to be proud that the last time I went to McD's was quite a while ago.
Needless to say, I didn't do great with my goals... again!
1- Food: track and eat no more than 1880 healthy calories... hehehe!! I finished the day at 2912 cals... I have a positive calorie differential of 277, meaning I ate more calories than I burned. Not good, but expected after today...
2- Fruits/veggies minimum 5 : 4 only, 2 fruits and 2 veggies.
3- Drink 8 cups of water: that went well, 10 cups today
4- Take a multi-vitamin. DO NOT FORGET! Can you believe I forgot again!!!! I'm terrible!
5- Exercise PLANNED DAY OF REST: Rest from running yes, but not from gardening! We had a beautiful day, I planted the trees and some flowers. Next on the list, vegetable garden! Can't wait!
6- Meditate 10 minutes: done this morning, and I also read and reflected in my journal!
7- Sleep 8 hours: got 7.25 hours last night, not too bad.
I know I keep writing the same thing over and over, that I eat too much, blah, blah, blah! But I don't care, I have to keep writing it so I know what I'm doing. I'll keep trying again and again and again until I reach my goal weight and run my marathon!!
Better plan for tomorrow then:
1- Food: track and eat no more than 1880 healthy calories
2- Fruits/veggies: minimum 5
3- Drink 8 cups of water
4- Take a multi-vitamin. DO NOT FORGET, NO NO NO!
5- Exercise 6 days a week, with 3-4 running days per week as per my 10k training program: Tuesday training with the club, I'm in for a good run!! Woohoo!
6- Meditate 10 minutes
7- Sleep 8 hours
Thanks for the constant support, it gives so much meaning to my journey!
