I have done 2 mornings in a row of AM workouts. Knocked out 2 - 4 mile runs on Tuesday and Wednesday and I feel great. I really pushed them and upped my speed and I love doing that. It really shows me that I can push myself a little further than I thought I could. I will do strength training in the morning and then a 3 mile run on Friday and then a 13 mile run on Saturday.
My food has been going so much better also. I realized that I was letting myself have about 5 too many treats each week and 2-3 of those were meals and as a result my weight went up and my pants are tight. As much as I want to from time to time I just can't eat like that. Of course it was the holiday season and it was nice to give myself a little leeway I am not sure it was worth it. I am not beating myself up about it by any means I just learn over time things/foods that are worth it and ones that are not and several of the things I ate were not worth it. At least I live in learn though. For the past 1 1/2 weeks though I have been SOLID on my food. I am not having any cheats for a few weeks. I just need to prove to myself that I don't want/need that stuff. Now I am having a fruit popsicle or popcorn or jello or even a bagel w/ cream cheese on it from time to time and so those things keep me satisfied and not feeling deprived.
Here is my food for today:
post run - 1/2 orange
B - oatmeal, peaches, banana
S - apple w/ peanut butter
L - turkey sandwich, homemade tomato soup and spinach w/ dried cranberries and light dressing
S - string cheese and carrots
D - not sure yet, I am thinking something with ground turkey b/c we have that in the fridge and we need to use it.
All in all things are going really well and my weight is slowly creeping back down. WOOT!
