Day Five - Feeling Frustrated!
Saturday, March 29, 2014
So, today is not my day. I decided I should get on the scale to have an official starting weight again for when I weigh in two weeks from now. When I stopped using Spark People in the past I weighed 151, so today when I got on the scale I was at 159.5. I knew it was going to be higher, but it REALLY bummed me out. It probably would have been worse to be two weeks into it and have it come back above 151.
So, I shook it off and decided I would go running. (I had stopped running in the past due to an injury - piriformis syndrome and Iliotibial band syndrome. Basically, the pain got so bad I had stopped running, became depressed and gave up.) So, recently, I have worked up to running on a treadmill for three miles without issue, so I thought I would be okay on the road. After 1.5 miles (like before), the pain started. I had to stop and have my husband pick me up. I LOVE running outside, and it really stunk to be beaten again. I am trying not to let it get me down.
I also did not eat wonderfully at all. Today was really a guesstimate, and I feel like I totally failed on all counts today. I know I am being hard on myself, and am trying to let it go........
