I really thought today was going to be a terrible day. I did not get to bed last night until 11pm! WAY LATE FOR ME! With my alarm going off at 5am I wasn't sure what to expect today. I slept very hard and so I must have gotten some decent rest. When my alarm went off I didn't want to get up, but I did. To a degree I was excited about going to the gym, but with my lack of sleep I thought it was not going to be the best day there.
It was an awesome day at the gym...I hopped on the treadmill and went to it. I had planned on running for 30 mins so I set the timer for 40 (to include a 5 min warm-up and cool down). While I was going I figured that a half mile would be 6 min 15 sec. So I decided that I could handle an extra 75 sec running. I did feel the difference once I hit 25 mins. But by the time I hit 30 I really could have kept going easily for longer! I finally feel like I actually enjoy the running challenge :) My breathing was really good and my HR topped out at 162...right where it should be :) I had fun this morning, but we will see what Wednesday brings. No guarantees about that run. But I will give it my all!!!
Today I did fairly well on my eating. I may have had a little much with my taco salad, but I did try to pack it with lots of lettuce! Been needing some salad in my diet! Tomorrow I am thinking about taking one of my frozen WW meals for a change of pace.
I am not sure what to expect from my weigh in this week, but hopefully it is still good news. I have strayed a little and I need to get back on track again. I find I do this every so often and have to re-group. I need to learn how to not do this, but at least I know I can get back on track. My exercising has been great, but I do know I need to shake it up. I have a new ball routine to try tomorrow and see if that helps confuse my muscles.
The new shoes were great today. I was amazed at how much of a difference they could make. Also, thanks to my water bottle, I really did drink more water today. I think these are very positive changes for me :) I keep thinking about where I want to be, but I need to focus on the week to week too. I feel myself lose sight of the short term sometimes, and then because of that I get frustrated. I do find myself checking myself out in the mirror more often so I should probably check my measurements again to see if they are moving. I almost put my belt on the last hole today and then realized it was still a little too tight, but soon!
That is all for tonight. I need to get things together for tomorrow. And get to bed earlier!!!!
