Not bad for a Monday! 5K done!

Monday, March 18, 2013

So I worked all day, (10 hour day), then came home and instead of getting into my workout gear, I got into my comfy clothes, you know, loose sweats and t-shirt, logged onto SP to log my day's food and water. A voice in my ear said, what are you doing? You can do that later, go work out. I wanted to shut her up, but she kept on and kept on... I've been very successful and very happy to workout - but something, not sure what, kept me from working out since last Wed.

Long story short, I got off my butt, got changed again, into proper work out clothes, went downstairs and got on the dreadmill. Cranked the I-Tunes, and thanks to KISS, Lenny Kravetz, Adele, Pink, Rob Thomas, Nickleback etc., I actually walked 3.1 miles!!!! (5k if anyone is counting)... It took me 71.24 mins.. not my fastest, because I figured it was later that I was starting and didn't want to eat dinner too late, so after 1 mile I slowed my pace, then another great song came on and kept going, speed went up, and off I went again for another mile. Funniest thing was, I wanted to keep going, even after 3 miles.. I was just so into the music!! LOL.. feeling awesome!

Bad side is, I ate dinner (chicken breast and veggies) at 8:15 pm.... waaay too late. I hope I don't end up with a restless night from eating too late.

Happy and full and oh so pleased as punch with myself.
