Feeling on Track
Thursday, May 09, 2013
On Tuesday I had one of those days where I just didn't want to get up. So I didn't. I laid around the house all day, ignoring the fact that I had a 3mi run on my calendar. Cue 10:45 at night, after a long day, and a nice chat with my bff. I looked at my calendar and thought, I need to stick with this. Obviously it was too late to run (don't want to get kidnapped any time soon), but I could get one of my other workouts in. So I popped in Jillian Michaels (my weds workout) and got to work.
What was super awesome was that I was able to do more pushups, and, I was able to complete those dreaded armlifts that are always soooo hard. I actually said "wow" when I finished the first round successfully. It felt really good. Then I got up yesterday and did my 3mi run. I'm proud that I've been consistent in working out every day that I'm scheduled. Might not happen in the exact order I plan, but I'm doing it. Today is a 2mi run. Gotta get out there :)
Oh! Also, last week (might have been the week before), I had a HUGE sugar binge. Ate a bunch of cookies, candy, and wound up the the HUGEST headache. I felt like crap. After that day, I said, no more sugar at work--which is where the binge happened--we always keep so much crap at work. Since that day, I'm been pretty awesome at not eating sugar. The first week, I did eat a rice krispie treat. This past week, I was SUPER tempted to eat a slice of lemon pound cake (we get treats from starbucks everyday), and I decided, "eff it, I'm going to do it...let me just track this thing first." I went to track it, 500 CALORIES for one slice of that dang cake. No crusty old starbucks slice is worth 500 calories, so I said no and to soothe my cravings ate a could of vanilla hard candies. Definitely not worth it (pretty sure they aided in a headache later), but I was so happy I tracked that cake before I ate it. Good habits are starting to form :)
