A struggle today...

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

It was too warm and there wasn't enough snow left today for snow shoeing, so I went for a run instead. Oh my... I struggled. I decided to do 4 minute intervals, and it just about killed me. I felt a little sick to my stomach when I was done... and I only went 1.5 miles. What is up with that? I know I haven't been running regularly this Winter, but I haven't been sitting on my butt either. My mom suggested it was a barometric pressure change problem, but that would be too easy. I think I just need to be more consistent about getting out there. I have better gear for cold weather now, so I don't have a good excuse. I am just a wimp.

I ate too much protein today. I finished off the beef stew I made on Sunday, then roasted a chicken for dinner today (and probably two or three more days). I ate both legs and both wings! Burp! (Excuse me...) It probably won't hurt me to have so much protein, since it is only one day. These things tend to balance out over time.

I find that to be true of most things. Whether it is what I eat, my physical activity, my emotions, or my relationships with friends and family... things tend to balance themselves out if I let them be. Now I just have to convince myself I don't have to be the one in control all the time. LOL!

    I have a hard time lightening up my white-knuckle grip on control too.

Baby steps.

    Someone told me that if you feel sick after a run, force yourself to walk it out, even if you are tired-it works for me! Good for you just getting out there to begin with--I've been slacking! emoticon
