Ups and Downs
Monday, December 10, 2012
On the upside, my 5K time is down.
On the downside, my weight is up.
Focusing on the positive, I've PR'ed my last 3 5K races, and in one of them, I was dressed as a hot dog. (I know, right?) On Saturday, I broke 28 minutes, and on Sunday, I finally broke 27 minutes! Neither race was chipped, and there is a possibility that either or both were a little short, but either way, I'm pretty sure that my speed is improving for short distances.
I can't pretend that I don't know why my weight is up. It started with over eating on Thanksgiving weekend, and extended itself to lazy food logging (or rather, food logging in denial - not logging because you just *know* if you log, you'll be over - so not adding things to the log, because you don't want to face reality).
Every day is an opportunity to start something new - so at least I've logged a good day of food for today - and I plan to stick to it.
If I can add some strength training and cardio to it, and if I'm really good, a decent amount of sleep, I'll be on the road back to weight loss in no time.
