I have a hard time coming up with creative titles for most posts (in case your haven’t noticed). Eating wise I didn’t do too well, although nothing really bad. It was mostly just poor planning and being in a hurry. I woke up too late to fix breakfast, so I grabbed a Nutri-Grain bar. Well, that hardly filled me up, so in addition to that I had my usual lunch for breakfast. Then I was at Target for lunch and grabbed some Pop-tarts. Let me tell you, I think those silly things are worse than donuts. 400 cals for 2 and I barely felt like I ate anything! Indulged in a little chocolate in the afternoon. But this evening all I’m having for dinner is a piece of grilled Salmon. I tried out my new (to me) George Foreman. It did cook the salmon quickly and easily. I am, however, worried about how it might be difficult to clean.
The workout front was great. It was hard to get out the door, because it’s so cold outside (34 degrees) and it was completely dark and felt so late. However, once I got to the Y, I had a great time. I moved on to week 5 of c25k and had absolutely no problems with the 3 five-minute runs. I certainly could have run longer. It just felt much easier than usual. Maybe I’ll make it through the 20 minute run on Friday! And, of course, I burned some serious calories.
I have a couple pressing things on my to-do list so I may not get around to my weekly stats post until wednesday, but stay tuned because there’s some great news! And I also have pictures of me in my new clothes to post.
