Last night, they were looking for some people to stay and work overtime on the night shift. I had to think long and hard about it. In fact, it was an hour and a half into my own shift before I made the decision to go ahead and stay. I had no problem with the working of the extra shift. What I had a problem with was that if I worked last night, that meant I wouldn’t be running this morning. I had a “win” in that my supervisor let me take a slightly longer break so I could drive home and get my already prepared dinner and bring it back so I wouldn’t have to break my challenge and go get Taco Cabana or whatever to eat for dinner.
I’m doing great on my challenge. But I’m not going to actually post about it until the end of the month. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to do my best to continue with the not eating restaurant and/or junk food after the end of this month. I just feel so much better in so many ways. My eating has been great and I’m really enjoying my food prep Sundays where I’m cooking multiple things. I’m getting excited about cooking every Sunday and have already decided on what I’m going to cook this coming Sunday.
As I worked last night, even though I would have to back within 8 hours of leaving work, I toyed with the idea of doing my 4 mile run after work and before going to bed. I decided not to. However, I woke up over an hour and a half before my alarm was set to go off and could have stayed up and been fine (I slept great night before last). So, I kinda wish that I had gone for that run after work. Sigh…oh well. And then I’m still pining over that canceled 3.3 mile run from earlier in the week. So, right now, I’m toying with the idea of making tomorrow’s 5.7 mile run a 9 miler instead. And then Friday, before Amanda picks me up to go to Leap of Heroes (this is a program where disabled war veterans are sponsored and get the opportunity to tandem sky dive…believe me, I will be writing a post about this!) at 7:30am Friday morning, I will do my 4 mile run. I will have to wake up around 5:30am in order to do it and be ready by the time she gets there, but that’s okay. And then, Saturday…15 miles!
