Set Backs and Come Backs
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Do you ever have empty days? You know those days where no matter what you eat you never seem to get full. I had an empty day yesterday. Thankfully all I ate was healthy food but healthy food still has a calorie cost. Sometimes I wonder if we are preprogrammed to have these days come up. Like our bodies are preparing for something. Today is not an empty day.
Thankfully I had an hour workout yesterday to make up for some of my empty day nomming. I bumped my level up to 2 on the elliptical and it was a lot more intense than I expected. I did the entire hour but only made it 4 miles. Today though when I backed it down to 1 I hit my five k faster than ever. I also did my first in a very long time, 10 minute mile! That's one of my goals I can cross off my list! Super excited. Not only that but my 5k was done in 33.11 minutes. Blasted past my previous best time. So what's next on my fitness goals? Two things are in the works for February, improving my flexibility so I can do the splits and a 30 minute 5k. Three more days and I've blasted past January with much success.
What are your January success'? Have you fallen off the bandwagon and are struggling to hang on? Have you grabbed the wagon by the harness and hit that horse hard? Let me know in the comments! I'm excited to hear from you.
