run in with chocolate; followed by a day of self-care...
Friday, February 15, 2013
i wish i could be a person of balance.. mostly i can be.. but its that sometimes... when i just get nuts.. and the 13th and 14th.. it was CHOCOLATE.. i do pretty well with dark somewhat bitter chocolate..i like it.. its not too sweet and it hits the spot.. but with the holiday and buying treats for my family and clients i found myself popping hersey kisses like potato chips.. ugh!!
of course i didn't feel very good about this after the fact.. Thursday was a day i couldnt train.. and that made it worse..
so, my schedule is pretty tight.. i have most of my free time on the weekend.. so today after getting the kids to school i went to crossfit (worked on deadlifts -156 lb -yes!! and squat cleans-- worked on some gymnastics stuff.. "skin the cat" is something i have been trying to get and i did it!! not pretty but i did it!!
then i went to Hot Yoga for 90 min , went to the natural food store (more self-care :)
it was 53 degrees today in NY.. these kind of days are very special right now in February!! soooo, went for a 5 mile run.. sprints at the end.. so, i really worked on trying to build up my competence and self-esteem after really sabotaging my recent efforts.
i have a Masters crossfit competition in one week.. i am fairly nervous about this comp... i havent been back to crossfit for very long.. its a tough 3 WODS.. i have been practicing... i just have to work on my postitive self-talk and can not afford to take a bite of junk that underminds my efforts..
back to tracking tomorrow on the site.. i always track in my training journal..
