Training Week 3
Monday, July 02, 2012
Another week completed... sort of. The week itself is gone, but I fell off the wagon on my training. I could go into the excuses that it was hot and I was sore, but I don't have any real reason other than I didn't wanna. I went out dancing on Friday night and even though I didn't drink much, I felt a little hung over and sore the next day, so I figured it would be OK to take one day off. Then on Sunday it was unbearably hot and my boyfriend actually wanted to spend the day with me and go to a wine tasting out in Stillwater. So I didn't work out again with promises to work out on Monday which is usually my rest day and do twice as much. Today is Monday and I have my gym stuff, but I am still feeling rather unmotivated. Maybe I pushed myself too hard because I am so tired and sore all the time. This weekend I felt so normal again.. it didn't hurt to walk up the stairs and I wasn't falling asleep while I watched a movie.
Also, I probably fell outisde my nutrition ranges. My boyfriend took me out to eat for what seems like every meal this weekend and while I think I made healthy choices, my drive to try and figure out what they map to in the nutrition log seemed too daunting. I am starting to feel that I have a much better handle on portions and choices that keep me in control of my calorie and fat ranges so I may be less diligent in tracking every single thing I eat.
It is supposed to be ridiculously hot this week so I am trying to plan my gym time, but for some reason that is so much harder than riding my bike to work and running out my front door to the lake.
For the record, I did do all my training Monday through Friday last week even when I got thrown off by forgetting my swimsuit and had to stop at Walmart for a cheap replacement.
