Puttering Along on One Good Knee
Sunday, June 16, 2019
Happy Father's Day! I am currently supposed to be doing my knee exercises but I am procrastinating :) Anyway!
Quick week recap.
I eat out too much
I've known this has been a problem for a long, long time but it got out of hand (again) this week. Something to solve. Having food available at home to cook is not an issue. It is lack of energy and motivation.
Sometimes I don't have enough time
I've been putting in 10+ hour days at work but my commute is super short (like 15 minutes). How do people who commute do it?? They don't sleep? But I need 8+ hours to just function on a basic level. More if I want to feel optimal. I kept wondering how my husband does so much and then I did the math. He gets like 6 hours of sleep! That explains things! I would just die (he's active all day and sleeps hard. My head would hit my desk every 2 minutes.) If I go to bed 2 hours earlier, I can exercise in the morning but Rob wouldn't want to do that. Sigh.
Something is better than nothing.
I did 15 crunches yesterday after I foam rolled my hip and thigh. Maybe today I'll add some push ups. Do SOMETHING.
12 Weeks until the first fall race
I have 12 weeks until my next half marathon! That means its go time and I can barely walk, let alone run. Eek!
I don't want to diet.
I tracked my food for like a week and a half in total and it wasn't painful but I wanted nothing to do with the nutrition information. I've been slightly more aware but I am happy just puttering along. My husband keeps bugging me about how he's keto and we have a Florida wedding in October. It just makes me want to eat cake out of spite. LoL. But seriously, I don't find events like this motivating at all. I would rather lose weight because I'm doing things that make me happy and feel healthy rather than force it. I've always been that way but its been more glaringly obvious lately!
That's all for today. Just wanted to blog while I had the chance!
How was your weekend?
Rob and I spent some time with friends and then family for Father's Day. I am totally exhausted!
