So my last few days I have been having those completely over dramatic thoughts that I know when I think them are just foolish. Like....
I could have dislocated my shoulder...or I could just be sore.
My right Quad is ruptured....or I could be sore.
I thought I was going blind in my right eye...just eye gunk.
Basically, I have been a little bit of a baby this week.
My workout this morning didn't disappoint. We worked our little tushies off. Afterwards, I thought I was going to have to run by myself cause one of my runners was in a hurry. Well she decided to run anyway so we had a pretty speedy run, probably the best so far (I don't know for sure because I left my watch in the car.) As of this morning I have ran 15 miles this week in hopes of finishing the week with 20. We are running again in the morning and then Sunday is a Rest Day. Those could become my favorite 2 words ever.
I'm still so proud of my workout buddies that are running steps. This is such a hard workout but it makes it so much more fun with someone to talk to and cut up with...and misery really does love company!
I have done great with my workouts this week but I have struggled with food. I have noticed on the days that I run I am starving by about 10 o'clock. I am really hungry when I get home from the run but I have been trying not to eat then.
Well I am trying a new system...I am eating a small something (cereal and milk) before I go out in the morning. I have to eat something but not to much or it will make me sick. Then after the 5 miles I go home and eat a protein rich breakfast (egg omelet). Yes you counted correctly...I am officially eating two breakfasts. This used to be all at one time but I am just splitting it up. I hope this will help me not to starve by lunch time. Usually when I am super duper hungry I eat something that I shouldn't instead of the sandwich I pack. Then once I screw up lunch I think well I just mark this day off and start all over. Well its that kind of thinking that made me fat in the first place.
I'm gonna give this a go for a few weeks and see if it helps...if not, new plan. I hope this helps because I'm tired of ruining my calorie deficit over a pack of Fries. I want the results from my workout! Maybe I just need a little more willpower to stop the French Fry from traveling to my lips. Nobody is force feeding it to me.
I don't have a planned workout tonight and I think I am going to take advantage of that and go home and get in bed. I am still getting up early in the morning to run to beat the heat but at least tomorrow I can get back in bed when it is over, but heaven knows I'm to fired up afterwards to lay down. Right now tomorrow looks like a whole day off of work, but in my business that can change in an instant. Here's hopin'.
