Hello my fellow Sparkers! I hope everone is having a sparktastic day!
I'm doing well with my 5K training, getting better every time. BUT - I need more focus! I need to get out more! AND I really, really need to eat better. I'm not losing anything - nothing. Because I'm eating crap because of my exercising. I'm giving in to binges, I'm snacking on crap, I'm eating to much at a time. It's awful. I hate the fact that I can't wear every shirt in my closet with any pair of pants because of how tight things are and having to hide muffin tops.
The goods news? I'm always improving my training! I go further and further for longer every time! it feels awesome! and I added in another 5K to do in August. The first Saturday of August I'll be doing a 5K that is a walk/jog one, so I can just relax and keep training and use it as a good test for myself to see how I do and what I need to focus on while I keep training for the next one a month later.
This week I go back to weight watchers and get back in the swing of that, and I keep training. Starting this upcoming week I want to have some workouts picked out for strength training to supplement my cardio with. 2 of my 5K's are obstacle course 5K's so I need to make sure I'm ready!
Assignments for tonight: take a look at the routes of my 5K's (hopefully they're posted), mani/pedi, laundry, pack meals for tomorrow, and in bed by 10 so I can get up in the morning and get a work out in.
Yesterday I had planned on working out before work, but I didn't. I woke up, I got up early, but all I could think about was everything I needed to get done at work and knew that I wouldn't have a good work out and would just be stressed out thinking about work, so I took the extra time to go to work early. It was the right decision. Of course I should have gone to the gym after work, and didn't, but that's ok. Tomorrow should be a good day to get the workout in before work.
Hope you all have a Sparktastic Day!!
