..and the cold and the wind. It is the middle of March. I'm so done with crappy commutes to work and icy roads and snow and blowing snow and snow.
Anyway, the plan for today was get up early, head to the gym and do another 5k training day, return home and get ready for work. Hubby even decided to go with. I got up early as planned. It snowed. We left the house. It is only about a mile but we have to pass through a few stop lights. It was slippery and slow going. We got to the gym and I realized I didnt grab my shoes. So dropped hubby, back home I went. I ended up having about 12 minutes rather than 30 to do my walking and jogging. So I pushed myself to get a bit more of jogging in. I don't know that I can really count that as a training day, which also throws of my every other day plan.
BUT, lets look at the positives: I got up and went to the gym. I did 10 minutes more of walking and jogging than if I had just turned around and not gotten my shoes (they are in the car now btw), I was on track for a 17 minute mile again and I felt really good about the choice I made to go.
That positive energy translated into making good choices during the day. I ended my day at 100 calories under my low range. I'm gonna stick with that because I am just not hungry.
In a previous blog I commented that there is a strong connection to the class I am taking and eating. I get stressed and anxious and want to eat. Today when I was working on an assignment I had that urge. I left my desk and went and talked to a coworker about it instead. I felt better, in fact, much more so than when I give in and eat.
Overall, it was a really positive day. Except, now I think because I have had three pretty good days in a row, I should have lost like 20 pounds. If only it worked that way. Not that I would want to gain 20 pounds from 3 bad days...
