Boy this weekend was a disaster on the food and exercise front. Disaster may be a too strong of a word but you know what I mean. I was really in a funk. My appetite was out of control and every time I went to workout there seemed to be some roadblock.
Saturday I thought the gym was open until 8 when actually it closed at 7 so I didn’t get to lift. I tried to run instead but I my heart wasn’t in it. I ran, maybe 20 minutes. I’m not sure, as I didn’t bring my Nike+ because, again, I thought I was going to lift.
Yesterday I was planning on my first ever 60 minute run before my relay in the Baltimore Marathon this weekend but it didn’t happen. My running partners backed out and it took all my motivation and energy to get out the door. Which I did, but when I got to the route I realized I forgot my iPod. *sigh* I was starting to feel like everything was stacking against me. That’s the funk talking. You know, the "world is against me attitude" the "why is it so hard for me" mentality. That funk can have a pretty good hold but I decided to get out and run anyway, or at least I tried. But again, my heart wasn’t in it. With no music and no NIke+ I could again, only run for about 20 minutes. I guess I found my music-less running limit. I’m not hard core yet, I can only last about 20 minutes without the distractions of my favorite tunes! :~)
Today I did better. I feel better. I made it to Boot Camp, had a great warm-up run keeping a 8:49 pace for .7 of a mile and worked my tail off in what the instructor called "House of Pain". It was basically random exercises from squats to dips for abut 30 minutes. Fun, right? :~)
So here’s the food journal today. I’m working on a version 2 of Tweet, Eat, Post where you can enter a date to generate your journals. It will helps fix the after midnight problem that some of use night owls face.
Oh! and Carrie discovered that you can actually post workouts and subtract points simply by adding a negative (-) sign in the parenthesis like so…
