Update on the last few days
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
Things have been going pretty good since Sunday. I'm still on high from my half marathon. Still can't get over how well I did. My legs were a bit sore on Monday, but all better now. I took Monday off. No exercising. I think I deserved that. Instead, I got to help out in my DD's classroom. We painted their California models they made last week (which I helped with,too). It's so nice at this age. They really didn't need any help at all. Did a few errands after I left her class and then, I was back there again for a little party: decorated pumpkins and had cupcakes ( a belated birthday for my daughter, too). Since there wasn't any homework, my DD went to a friends house. I met her at another one's friend for trick or treating. We ate dinner (1 slice of veggie pizza and lots of salad!). The girls had a really nice time together. I had a half a slice of pumpkin bread and 1 mini bag of peanut M&M's. Couldn't resist. My favorite.
Tuesday, I did some strength training. Just did 45 mins of arms and abs. Giving my legs some more rest. Eating was ok. Can't remember what I ate all day, but I think I did ok. I also don't think I did much yesterday. Just felt like relaxing.
Today, I got to run again. I was so excited to get out there and run. How crazy is that coming from me!!! But, it was so windy today that I decided to run on the treadmill which I loathe! I had to do 6 miles: 5 miles of intervals and 1 mile of straight running a total of 59 minutes. I"m hoping tomorrow the weather is better so I can see how I do outside. Eating was pretty good:
1 rice cake w/ apple butter
1 roll w/ 2 slices of turkey & 1/2 avocado
1 venti non-fat misto w/ sugar free vanilla
handful of almonds, string cheese
2 meatballs w/ whole wheat pasta
3 mini chocolates
Now, I'm back from soccer practice: I get to sit in the car and play/read on my IPAD while DD practices outside. I think I'm going to make myself some green tea and have a peanut butter & oat bar. Then, it'll be time to watch Modern Family!
Hope everyone is having a good week.
