Boy do I feel like crap today!!!! Something has gripped me and I can't seem to shake it. It's the first time in a very long time that I have been sick. I've been feeling sick since I ran last Friday when afterwards it started in my chest. Then over the weekend after doing yoga I was stiff and sore. I think my body is just telling me to rest!!!
So that is what I did today. I am just stepping back from all the running around and taking it easy. The kids went back to school, and my husband went back to work. I was sad to see the winter break end. We had a really nice break. But being home alone and staying in gave me the chance to focus on my goals and work on my spark for the new year!!!
Even feeling as lousy as I do I am recharged and ready to go. I am done feeling frustrated over my weight gain from the past year. It was a good year...I ran two half marathons, a ten miler, some 5Ks...but packed on weight. I was constantly in training which left me very hungry and I just lost all control of my eating. I used the fact that I was running so much as permission to eat whatever the heck I wanted...and for me that is just not OK. So I need to refocus. I love running...I want to continue running...but I need to focus mostly on my eating and tracking what it is I'm eating. Its as simple as that. It always has been. I've said it a million times even though I don't always want to believe it. I can't "eat" because I ran ...miles. I must stay within a designated range. Exercise can't undo a bad diet. I've proved that!!! I'm pissed because of that...but I must get over it. It would be nice though.
I know I'm rambling...but I need to get this out there. This blog is my sounding board after all
So...once I am rid of this flu...what ever I have. I am going to get back out there and run my heart out. But...eat and track track track!!!! I also need to get back to yoga more regularly too!!! For now its just eating and finding my way back with my spark tracker.
Hope it was a good one for you!!!
