Yesterday was a successful day.
over 8 glasses of water
5 servings of freggies
a 45min spin class
30min on the elliptical
I was just over 1500 calories yesterday, and in all my ranges.
I got on the scale this morning. It's still moving in a downward trend. That is empowering. To see that you are doing things right and making progress towards your goals. My official weigh in is next Sunday/Monday. I've already surpassed my weekly goal. Now it's just gravy, and progress towards my next weekly goal.
That was yesterday. Success or failure, it does not affect (or is it effect) today's outcome. I need to focus on today like I did everything I could yesterday, and still gained weight. I am only competing with myself. Yesterday is who I am trying to do better than.
Drink more water and take electrolytes to help keep blood pressure up
Eat more freggies. At least 5 servings
Run. Today is a training day
I'm not sure if I am going to do a second workout today. My body is not very sore, but I can feel the tired muscles from yesterday. I won't be taking a day off - I will be running. And I will approach this run as if it's the only workout I have today. I will push myself.
Today is definitely not a rest day. But maybe it'll be an easier day. Let my muscles recover from yesterday.
I really don't know. Is my body telling me I need to ease up today? I think so. Or is it my mind tricking me into becoming a couch potato again? I don't really think so. I know I'm going running. I'm going to do my best. And if after my run and rest, I am up for it, I could always get on my elliptical during my recorded shows. I recorded Devious Maids last night
Oh, I also signed up for the DietBet10. This one is a 10% in 6 months. Longer term, slower weight loss. I weigh in for this one on Sunday. Weigh ins are monthly on this challenge. But for right now, I'm focusing on the immediate challenge - the DietBet4.
I finished today's training run. I pushed during my run, and it feels great to be done. I'm already considering some more activity later today.
