Gotta tell you that the luxury of a pedicure is pretty motivating these days! So far, I’ve managed to:
- stay out of my kids’ Halloween candy
- journal my food 2 days this week (goal for the week = 4 days)
- fit in a run and core workout (goal for the week = 3 workouts)
Journaling has helped me realize that my veggie intake has slipped a little, so that’s helpful info. Since I don’t like that many vegetables raw, I sometimes find it tough to fit in veggies when I’m time-crunched, as they require time to prepare. Also, when I’m stressed, some veggies (especially broccoli and cauliflower) are totally unappealing and kind of make me gag. Don’t know why that is – it just is.
I’ll definitely be running Friday, but will also be hitting a bootcamp class Saturday morning.
Ran tonight, and my left IT band was bothering me again. Darn – thought I’d kicked that injury, especially since I haven’t been running very much at all, so the ITB has had lots of rest. Clearly I need to get back to the exercises my physiotherapist prescribed, which I’ve been neglecting as of late. I can only have so many priorities, ya know? Even if it only takes a few minutes a day, sometimes those minutes add up.
Well, off to bed! I’m up way too late and have an early morning. Finding it hard to get out of bed these days – a combo of the darkness and my school-related fatigue. Glad I got my workout in tonight though!
Tips for getting out of bed in the late fall/winter? Sun doesn’t rise around here until almost 8am, and sets around 5:30pm these days.
