Today was a really nice day for a run, however, no run for me today. I had to pay bills and run some errands before getting ready for work. Tomorrow will be just as nice as today and I have decided that I will either do just the Bob Harper yoga DVD or a quick 2 mile run plus the yoga.
Sunday is going to be a FABULOUS day to do my nice long run in the afternoon! I had originally planned to do a 10.5 mile run on Sunday, but when I mapped out my route this morning before getting ready for work, I ended up with an 11.25 mile route. That’s cool. That’s just .75 more than originally planned, that’s not that big of a difference. And then, the following Sunday will me just 6-ish miles.
Well, I guess I need to think about my workout schedule for next week now. So, here we go:
• Sunday – run 11.25 mile
• Monday – trainer workout
• Tuesday – run
• Wednesday – no workout, worked a double shift Tuesday
• Thursday – run
• Friday - no workout, worked a double shift Thursday
• Saturday – quick 2 mile run with gym or yoga
After next week, I have no overtime scheduled for work. I’m a little bummed about that, but I’m also not bummed about it. Why the conflicting emotions about it? Well, obviously, I want the extra money that I get from working the overtime and I’m going to have to stick to a budget pretty strictly without it. On the other hand, I’m glad because that means more sleep and more opportunity and time to fit in exercise.
So…I think I’m going to abandon that little “lose 5.6 lbs by the end of February” mini-goal I made for myself. I weighed myself this morning to see where I was at and, well, I’m up from what I was on Sunday. Ugh. Of course I haven’t (TMI in 3…2…1…) pooed since Sunday either. So frustrating. I have no idea why I’m not pooing regularly. It’s not like I’m in pain from constipation or anything either. I’m just no pooing. But I know I’m eating and I’m eating foods that have fiber in them, so I SHOULD be pooing. I just don’t understand it. So, I’m just going to focus on inches and body fat %. While I’ve always liked the idea of getting down to 160 lbs, I also understand that my body just plain may not let me get that low…and I’m fine with that so long as I’m healthy and fit. Anyway, I’m still going to weigh myself every week like I have been, but I’m not going to focus on the number.
I decided to start mixing in some “cheat” foods here and there. To kick that off, haha, I ate a Cinnabon that I’ve been craving for the past 3 or so days while I was out and about. It was delicious and it satisfied me. And it instantly killed my craving for one. Anyway, tonight was my co-worker’s retirement party and I had the Frito pie, as I said I would...but I also had a piece of chocolate mousse cake. Delish! And then, on Sunday, after I complete my run, I’m going to get something to eat…either a burger and fries from my favorite burger place or a pizza. I haven’t decided yet. We’ll see what I feel like when Sunday rolls around.
