The past week was an interesting one. I had my birthday on Thursday, so of course there was a lot of eating out and not tracking my food. I also had some depression set in, which doesn't ever bode well for my motivation. Therefore, I didn't get to the gym as much as I had planned to, and I also undoubtedly overate. I didn't get my water in, which my body FELT! But, I still DID things. I still went to the gym twice and participated in my first 5k yesterday. I still checked in here every day.
The scale moved in the wrong direction this morning, but I'm not going to sweat it. I'm so proud of finishing my 5k in 45 minutes. I never thought I would do it in under an hour, since I didn't train properly (I'm only finishing week 2 of the 5k rookie running plan). I ran as much as I could and then walked for a while, started running again when I could. It was such an awesome experience! And it's giving me the motivation to keep going with this program so that I an actually RUN a 5k when it is over.
I'm also going to really think about my grocery list for this week. I'm going to try and pick 2 or 3 easy, healthy dinners that I can incorporate into our week, as well as continue to bring my breakfast and lunch, and track what I am eating.
And the water. Oh, the water. I have not gotten 8 glasses the last few days (some days NONE!) and my body really feels it. I am more sluggish and dragged out because of it. It's amazing how something that seems so small and simple can really make a huge impact on how I feel. So, back to at least 8 glasses a day, no matter what my mood is.
Here's to a great week everyone!!!!
