After my grumpy post yesterday, I am doing much better. Scale still says I'm up, but I am working to change that. Despite my initial thoughts of, "Dear God, please don't make me, " this morning, I got up and got on the treadmill. Can I just say that no running for 5 days + illness + fat chick= HARD! But I made it through week 2 of C25K AGAIN. I'll complete this thing if it kills me. My speed is still better than before, but man I can't wait until I can run a long time without feeling like I might croak.
Yesterday wrapped up pretty well. I went to TKD despite my general poo of a mood and the fact i still felt dizzy from ear fluid and wheezy from asthma. I made it through class with very few mishaps considering. Yeah it was hard, but I just love going there. I learned how I can break someone's arm, should the need arise. I feel so powerful. Hee hee. Too bad I didn't know this stuff during residency when I had to stay all night in the pysch hospital and help with disruptions...scary sometimes. I got wobbly with my 360 back kicks and the spinning, but I left tired and sweaty and proud I made it through despite nearly wimping out.
My calories yesterday were good, 977. Not necessarily on purpose low, but I wasn't hungry enough to justify more food so I skipped it. Man I feel better forcing myself to catch up on the water. It amazes me how much I miss it when I don't get it done.
Today has been better still. After my work out with the running, I made myself do some extra stretching because my thighs are sore, TKD of course. I also forced myself to do some plank as I hadn't done it in awhile and it's just good for you. I managed a minute which I feel is good considering. Patrick reminded me with his "how long can you?" Thing a while back and for some reason he just popped in my head this am when I was on the floor exercising. (Is that weird?) Anyway, I don't care because it reminded me not to forget my core. Besides trainer dude expects me to do this frequently and I always get the disapproving, "You haven't been doing your core routine at home" guilt trip when I slack.
I'm off now to a long and boring Board Meeting. Boo! But, I'm taking my healthy snacks. Yeah!
Please leave a comment. They just make me happy. Unless your a crazy person or......selling something in which case..... bug off!
