Ever had just "one of those days?" ugh did mine ever start off that way!
First, I decided to sleep in. This should be a good thing. It felt wonderful. Sleeping until 8am is sleeping in for me. I worked until a little after 10pm last night. So sleeping in was wonderful.
That meant I didn't get up early enough to run. My solution? We would go to Dothan and I could run at the gym, then shower and get our day started in Dothan. In the meantime, I worked on the budget (ugh), made the grocery list, and created the menu plan for the week.
Feeling good, I wondered, should I see what time the gym closes just in case?
Glad I called. They closed at noon. I called at 11:30. Oops.
So I got dressed in my workout clothes deciding I would do a punishing mid-day run in the direct sun. It was 89 degrees out and very sunny. I sprayed on my sunscreen, being sure not to miss any spots.
Then I walked outside. And it started pouring.
I came in the house absolutely fuming. I showered and resigned myself to the fact that I would not get to work out today for one reason or another. This will be my second rest day in a row. I NEVER do that. And I don't "need" it so it feels like a waste.
I got out of the shower and looked outside to see the sun shining brilliantly again.
We headed to Dothan and had a nice lunch together, then did some shopping and came home. Normally the above frustration would have been finely finished off with something unhealthy as I would be NOT in the mood to eat healthy.
Here is how I ended up faring with my food choices today:
Food (calories in):
Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled, whole wheat english muffin and 1 oz pepperjack cheese
AM Snack: Greek yogurt
Lunch: 6oz sirloin steak, steamed broccoli, grilled vegetable skewer, 1 yeast roll
PM Snack: 1/2 oz cheese
Dinner: last of the Zucchini Lasagna
Dessert: Zucchini Brownies
Exercise (calories OUT):
Does donning and doffing my workout clothes multiple times count? Fortunately I reached my burn goal for the day (2450) just by shopping, etc. but STILL.
So ready to run in the morning.
This will include anything I ate that day that did not promote fat loss, but fat storage:
1 yeast roll at lunch - pretty proud it was only one, actually was more like 3/4 of one.
Zucchini brownies - these are very healthy (no flour, no added sugar) but still probably didn't need two. :)
Here's a link to the recipe for the brownies:
Awesome Paleo approved Zucchini Brownies!
Pretty proud of myself overall. While I'm not 100% in line, I'm once again resembling my old self. I'm planning a 4 mile run in the morning, then an 8 mile run Monday morning.
8 miles - EEK!
