- Logging: dutifully logged everything today.
- Writing: in progress.
- Training: this is questionable. I went to physical therapy for the first time today. Basically, this means I got into gym clothes and then stretched for about 45 minutes. This does not feel like exercise, but my muscles are sore and I went back to work afterward and worked late, leaving no time for a visit to the actual gym (which was weird, since I was still wearing my gym clothes at that point!)
- Eating: I had a small victory this morning. We didn't have any coffee at home so I hit up a drive-thru on the way to work. This is a danger zone for me, as breakfast is my favorite meal. I bypassed McDonald's (those damn sausage-egg-mcmuffins are too tempting in my current state!) and managed to ONLY order coffee and get to work with my breakfast plan intact. Later, I lost a battle with a plate of chocolate brownies in the break room. (Limited myself to one.) All in all, I was close to my calorie limit for today, until after dinner when I ate two mini-candy bars. On the up-side, the goal was being more mindful of my snacking. At least I really ATE that brownie. It was delicious. Rich chocolate, not too sweet. Fudgey. So... ... Moving on.
- Water: I'm finishing my third bottle now, which will make 60 oz, and I'll find a way to chug another juice-glass-full on my way to bed.
I've never wanted this to end up being a "secondary food log" - I already have a food log - but for now, I think this little food-rehash may by helpful. Bear with me.
What I'd like to write about today happened last Thursday:
I finally made it out to the lake for TNAM! I've run my faux version of the 4.37-mile route in the neighborhood, but hadn't made it out to run with the group due to scheduling conflicts. Last week, there I was, with Coty, AND the hubs! Jason was anxious for some exercise and so was I after a busy week at work with no real exercise, so he threw his bike into the truck and we had a Family Night at TNAM. He rode the bike, Coty and I ran our little butts off. It was awesome! I tried to keep up with him while he rode slowly, and ended up shaving about 45 seconds off my best-ever time for that route! Wahoo! I have decided Jason has to go with me every week from now on. (Of course I'll be out of town this week and will miss it again. Boo on work.)
I have no photos to accompany this post. So how about this one from our first run at the Lake in 2013?
