On diet: Ugh, this is definitely where I went wrong this week. I was doing great and under 180 by Friday, but then Easter came along with my mom who brought a ton of candy and cookies. I’ve been stress eating all the junk food. The good news is that it’s mostly gone, but I’m really frustrated. I’ve been so uncontrollably hungry lately and all I want is carbs. I got myself some sugar snap peas, which I will eat raw, to snack on in hopes of cutting back on the sugary snacks. I’m also back to putting everything in MFP. I took the weekend off, which was definitely a mistake. I did, however resist the delicious 400 calorie muffins on Easter morning and instead ate my usual breakfast. That doesn’t sound like much, but I think there were probably little tweaks like that all weekend that kept me from going totally nuts.
NROLW cross-training: I thought I’d escaped the April Fool’s pranks, but then I woke up yesterday morning. Bootcamp was entirely burpees, lunges, and running laps and I feel like I never want to move my legs again. I had to modify some (a lot) of the lunges for my knee, but that is the only part of me that isn’t sore, so I think it’s getting better.
On running: I did two 4 mile runs this week. They felt fine, but I gotta say I was disappointed by how many fewer calories I’m burning lately. My heart rate doesn’t go up quite as high and there’s a lot less of me, so unless I start speeding up again I’m going to have to eat less on running days. And stop having 250 calorie cookies in the house. Junk food is not my friend.
In better running news, I am officially registered for the Detroit half marathon! We go to Canada during the race and I am so stoked. I also have Pretty Muddy in September and an uber cheap ($9) 5K on April 20. I still need to make a real decision on the Cap City Quarter.
So my goals for next week are eat less and drink more water. Yup. And no pictures for you today because I’m single parenting and my kid wants my attention. Sorry not sorry.
