10k race date: September 15, 2012
121 days left to train!
Busy day today, as I expected it to be! I was good though, since I knew I wasn't going to have time for anything ME-related after 11am, I took the morning to do my yoga, spend a little time on SP, have a good breakfast, take my vitamins and drink water. This is a totally new behavior for me... normally when I know I have busy days, I procrastinate all morning, spend the afternoon out then come home late, upset that I still have to workout but too tired to enjoy it!
I have to admit today was so much better!
To keep in mind next time I want to procrastinate!
All this to say, I didn't have my much needed nap this afternoon and now I am totally exhausted! So I better wrap it up here so I can get to bed and catch those 8 hours of sleep!
Here are today's goals:
1- Food: track and eat no more than 1880 healthy calories: I tracked the best I could since we had a late lunch out and practically no dinner. I am guesstimating 1952 cals for the day. Should be close to the truth!
2- Fruits/veggies minimum 5: This didn't happen today, not even a little bit! Unless of course french fries count as veggies! Lol!! I did have 1 fruit, but that was it!
3- Drink 8 cups of water: I am struggling to finish my last cup right now. I'll do it before bed, but I do hope I won't be up too much tonight visiting the pottie!!
4- Take a multi-vitamin: Done, didn't forget for the second day in a row!
5- Exercise 6 days a week, with 3-4 running days per week as per my 10k training program: today was YOGA day, and I did it first thing this morning! And may I add: what a fantastic way to start the day!!
6- Meditate 10 minutes: I did it right after my yoga session. Seemed appropriate!
7- Sleep 8 hours: This was a big problem last night. I think I got 7 hours, but my sleep was so interrupted, I feel like I was up all night. I'm hoping for a better night tonight!
8- Blog: Here it is!
I think I did much better today then on similar busy days in the past. I'm happy with myself, except maybe for the veggie section! That's why I'm a work in progress, it can't always be perfect, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this at the moment!
I hope everyone had a good day! And BTW, I am SOOO grateful for the support I get!
Now let's plan tomorrow:
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.
5- Exercise 6 days a week, with 3-4 running days per week as per my 10k training program: THURSDAY RUNNING DAY. My 10k training program calls for a short 20-minute run only. I was thinking about trying trail running tomorrow. First time I try this, I'll let you know how it goes!
6- Meditate 10 minutes
7- Sleep 8 hours
Happy Thursday in advance!
