Well, I don't know what's wrong with me over these last few months. My motivation has slipped away...I am still running and exercising, that's good. But my eating? It's been CRAP! I ate out probably 4x last week and 3x the week before that. I haven't been packing healthy food or snacks... AHH! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!!
So today I am starting again. I went out for an awesome run. It is SO HOT AND HUMID. Oh god...and I ran for 22 minutes straight and covered a distance of 1.89 miles. I did all the hills and stuff even though its mega humid and hot already. When I went out at 6:45am it was already 80 degrees and 100% humidity, that'll tell you how bad it was! It was a struggle but I was feeling good when I was running! I wasn't going super fast... but I kept a steady pace and was very proud of myself!
I was dripping with sweat though when I got back...holy moley! But I was very happy!
Next time I run (Saturday) I'll be starting week 7!!! I cannot believe it....I never thought I'd make it this far. I never though I would actually (dare I say it?) like running! I was actually happy that I got up and went running today! Woohoo! There were even some people out walking dogs and such that I said hello to. It's a nice community of people who get up early to exercise, even in this heat!
I went to Target afterward and literally got the nastiest coffee ever. I took one sip and almost spit it out. It was SO bitter and horrible. I had heartburn after that one sip...SO nasty! What the hell, Starbucks!? So after I wasted that money, I bought some healthy food items: lettuce (2 kinds), hummus, Sargento thin slices of cheese for sandwiches (40 cals each!), organic grapes, organic peppers, organic baby carrots, salsa...and I got myself a very special treat: FRESH PINEAPPLE! Oh god it was SO yummy...and healthy!
Today I'm going to start tracking religiously again. I know I'm going out to dinner with some friends on Friday night but I can make healthy choices. It's going to be good! I hope everyone is staying cool today! Drink plenty of fluids!
