Who else has a personal agenda, work agenda, running journal, and nutrition log? Only me? Am I the only one?
Yes, I have way too many journals that I keep up with. I recently added more journals to my stash to really see what was going on in my nutrition after last week’s doctor appointment. I love writing things down, it’s giving me time to think about my goals and see the progress.
I wish I was running more this past week, but the Blizzard of 2016 made it so I was stuck inside for two days. This was probably a great thing because I got in a lot of strength training that I would normally pass up on. Also, shoveling is a work out. It is. After my mind was made up about taking a rest after MCM, I think I got a little too comfortable. So, I’m back to getting myself out of my comfort zone and doing more of what I need to do, not want to do.
I have been getting in most of my training miles for RnR DC 1/2, but spending most of my time really looking into what I’m eating and other ways to work out. On Sunday, I ran up and down my apartment buildings stairs for a total of one mile. I needed some fresh air and outside exercise. No, I didn’t slip…maybe once…
It was great to see the sun and breathe fresh air again! Now with all the ice, I’m back to the treadmill. Still getting in lower milage for RnR, which I don’t mind. Training amps up in February, so I will be happy for all the rest I’ve gotten.
I’m hoping to be 5 pounds down by end of February. I am religiously logging all my runs and work outs in my Believe journal and all my food in Fitness Pal. I haven’t weighed myself because it has only been a week, but I am watching the portions that I eat. Like I said in my last post, I really don’t eat bad so I’m going to try smaller portions before I cut out any foods. I do feel better already. Not from weight loss, but just portioning and being content. I always eat until I’m full and then it’s too late. I think a lot of runners have this issue, especially during marathon training!
Just a quick update and keeping myself accountable! What are your snow days looking like?
