Today was a good day! My first appointment was at 6:00 am, so I was out by 5:15, to Starbucks by 5:30, and at Diesel 2 mins later. The day was varied…massage on a big bulky guy (work!), injured man who is about to run a marathon in his 50th state (Hawaii), a meditator, the Ninja…a quick nap… two sporty women, a creaky neck, and a swimmer. I like a day that’s all shaken up like that!
And my weight was down a half pound. Again, I know it’s not all for real, but it IS a little more motivating that watching the same number. That said, it is still higher than the highest I like it to be. My food for the day wasn’t great. I ate a Starbucks Protein Box all morning with my obligatory grande Christmas Blend. I had an extra little pack of peanut butter which I sucked down, too. That’s all I had with me, so I went off to run club a little hungry. I had a Smithwick’s after my “run”, and some sausage/rotini/red sauce they were serving. As it nears bed time, I’m hungry…yogurt should do it. Or maybe some turkey. Or maybe a hot fudge sundae. Kidding. I don’t have any maraschino cherries.
And today’s run…I knew it would happen, but I limped out with my pinchy hip and growling belly. Walked 10 mins, Measured 1 @9:59, run 1:30, walk :30; Measured 2 @11:16, (get this) run 60 steps, walk 30 steps (gotta’ play a game sometimes). Another half mile with some stairs.
As a woman who comes from a long line of “excess”…long miles, long races, crazy training schedules…I’m loving this “little bit”. A new way for me to do December!
