The Beastie Boys got me through my run today.
Went back to the gym, making sure Tuesday’s run wasn’t some kind of fluke. & it wasn’t, apparently. I guess I run 25 minutes (in a row!) now. So .15 warm up walk, 1.75 run, 5 min walk, 5 min run, 4 min walk, & a run to beat the band at the end (note: for me, “beating the band” is starting at a speed of 4.4 & working up to 4.8…so, maybe “beating the four-piece ensemble” or even just “beating the piano player” would be more appropriate here). Then I finished off with a short cool down walk…”cool down walk” is also a misleading phrase as it typically takes about an hour before the red in my face fully disappears after a run
Had a good day looking at houses after that. Don’t know if we found one yet…haven’t heard what hubby thinks of the pics I sent him…but we’re getting closer anyway!
Breakfast: bran flakes & blueberries
Snack: 100 cal granola bar while house hunting
Lunch: bowl of chicken sausage soup (last of it)
Snack: 2 WW toffees
Dinner: 1/2 chicken sausage mixed with brown rice, asparagus, & kale, big salad.
Snack: (AGAIN!) fat/sugar free pudding with lite cool whip
Exercise: 3.25 mile run/walk (mostly run!), 30 min walk around the dog park, and I might try a mat or yoga video tonight…we’ll see.
Oh & obviously I decided against running a race tonight. I was only looking for something to motivate me to keep at it & I found that something with the longer run times…in fact, I can’t wait for my next run! That & the fact that the race was an hour away, which was kinda a pain & an expense….think I’ll spend the $20 entry fee on groceries instead (what’ll that buy me these days, like a tomato and a partial share in a head of lettuce?).
Update: I’m eating too much these days & I need to get back to policing my portion sizes…those small plates I use are getting pretty packed. No wonder I’m losing at a snail’s pace. The chocolates today & yesterday were a mystery until, of course, TOM. So, chocolates & pudding & granola bar with chocolate today…mystery solved. But I need to get this under control now!
