I'm tired. And crazy. Is it Tuesday? I think it's Tuesday... I'm at work and I'm wearing Not My Uniform, so it must be Tuesday....
HERE I AM:
I think I recently posted something about being behind on my swimming? Well I did extra long swims on Friday & Saturday, so I actually caught up. I did 4 days worth of swimming in 3. WOO! So that's the red arrow, where I am as of today, with no swimming so far for this week.
675 laps. 12.5 miles. 8.5 miles left to go!
I wasn't paying attention at the time, but I went back with the math. I reached the halfway point officially on Thursday, January 31, four laps from the end of my swim. Halfway = 10.5 miles, which was around 566 laps (565.7). I kind of like that I made it halfway before February started.
I hope to swim at least 4x, maybe 5 this week. The first grey arrow is where I should be after 4 swims, the second one is the maybe possibly hopeful 5 swims one. But either way, as long as I get in AT LEAST 4, I will be in good shape to finish out my challenge after vacation!
Food was less great this weekend. Saturday we were at my in-laws'. We didn't really officially eat lunch, so when they put out snacks and such I could not stop eating chips. Ugh. There was a veggie tray, but it had all frozen. Then I had like 27 glasses of wine (not really, but it felt that way, hahaha. I'm a lightweight. I think it was 2 & 1/2) so of course at dinner I ate whatever. I actually am kind of proud, though. I didn't really eat huge portions of anything besides chips. The "huge" portion of chips I ate was about what I used to eat as a "normal" portion of chips. I ate a reasonable serving of pasta and some chicken, and half a piece of cheesecake. I went over my calories, but honestly? I tracked everything, and what I ate on Saturday is probably fewer calories than I used to eat on a "normal" day. I'm really not that broken up about it.
Sunday was a different story. Heh. I just kind of ate "whatever", and I didn't track, and I have to tell you. Having that blank day on my tracker there is DRIVING ME BONKERS. I may end up going in later and trying to retroactively track.
Similar to my breakfast emergency, I think my issues stemmed from not having the "right" stuff around. No lunch on Saturday = problem. No veggies to snack on either day = problem. Then I had a similar issue yesterday, where my work schedule wouldn't allow me to eat lunch, so I ended up over snacking all afternoon when I got home.
But overall, 3 days going over my calories by 200-600. Meh. In the long run. I'm back on track today, doing well. I just need to stuff myself with raw veggies and water again so I can stop feeling like I "need" carbs, sugar, and salt to be fed and comfortable.
This week job #1 is grocery shopping.
And swimming, of course.
