Taking it Easy

Friday, May 10, 2013

definitely sore today. i think i chose the right weights for lifting yesterday.

today, i was supposed to run w7d3 of c25k. i just wasn't feeling up to it, and it would be a very tight squeeze into toddler nap time today. (kids are getting picked up on weird times today, i'd probably show up at the door all sweaty and gross in front of parents.. ick). so instead, i'm going to take a long walk or a bike ride after supper. i need to stretch out a bit too. i hope to do c25k tomorrow.

yesterday, me and food were not friends. it all started with those darn chocolate chips. i managed to pull it together for lunch and supper, but then i had a total nacho-athon after supper, watching tv. it's been almost 6 weeks since i've had chips or chocolate. they still have complete control over me, best to keep avoiding them for a while. but, i did NRFLfW and a good bike ride after supper yesterday, so i'm hoping it all balances out.

i've decided to keep avoiding the scale until at least week 8. maybe longer. it seems to be working for me. i know that i've lost weight. i can feel it in my clothes and in my body. i know i still have a long way to go. i will eventually check, i just don't want to be frustrated. i want to make the food/exercise a lifestyle change, not just a gimmick to lose weight (because then, i'll go back to not exercising and eating crap after i've lost weight). even if i'm not losing, at least right now, i can feel proud of the healthy changes i'm making.

to end on a positive, i've put 26K on my bike so far just this week. my goal was 10K per week, so that's great. longest distance has been 7K, and i'm working up to a 10K route. yea!
