Instead of being mean as it had been in the past when I worked out three days in a row, the scale graced me with a 1lb loss this morning!
I knew there had to be SOME kind of reckoning soon, I've been working too hard for it to keep kicking me in the teeth with 187.2.
Down to 185.6 - CRAZY TALK.
Plans for this weekend include a fantastic 5 mile course with the road runners! Why am I so excited? Because it's just shy of half of my half-marathon distance AND it takes place almost entirely on the course for the Half itself! There is NOTHING more empowering in my mind than running the course before the race - to know what the challenges could be and to knock them down. Really, it's alllll mental.
After crushing my mental foes in the morning then it's time to go to the movies and catch Groundhog day at a local cinema. Come on, who can say no to Bill Murray?
Sunday is the Superbowl 5K. I'm looking forward to having a nice, lazy run. I wouldn't call it a race ;-)
Last night I learned that Muscle Milk lite is best prepared with a little bit of ice and skim milk. I tried it with water and the taste and texture were simply awful. I was reminded of when I was in college and used to drink these chocolate Atkins shakes. Yeah, tasted more or less the same. I'm hoping that adding these shakes to my routine help me feed my body better - that's my only goal. I don't think a shake will ever be something I Can look at as being 'filling' and it certainly won't stave off my mental hunger. But, I think so far I've found that the inheirent sweetness does keep me from considering the run out for icecream at 8PM.
For the curious about why I'm ditching my Fitbit it's not because I'm frustrated with it; it's because I'm not using it. My BodyMedia already tracks everything that the FitBit does and I need to wear the armband for the study.
Well, time to get some real work done. What are you guys doing this weekend?
