So I have formed the habit of running 5days a week. Sometimes they have to be shorter runs, 2 to 3 milers, but that is ok, because I am making it out, almost 5days a week. I got really sick with a fever, sore throat, hacking up a lung and drowning In my snot (I know that was discusting). That is the worst while working as a hygienist, bending over the patient with your nose draining everywhere, all I can say is thank goodness for my mask! (tmi, o well)! Anyways, I did not go out for 4 days in a row, and last week I missed two days during the week. But I have been pretty good. Eating on the other hand, not so good. I just love to eat, and to eat a lot. My portion sizes are large, I love carbs. I love to eat after 8pm as well. So, I'm going to eat, I do always eat whole wheat, and brown rice, and i love fruit and veggies, eggs, and oatmeal. But, I've been eating plenty of cookies, and pumpkin things too (glorious fall foods, clam chowder, soups, pumpkin cookies and shakes, ECt.) I just wanted to be in the habit of working out 5days a week, and making sure I'm getting good foods in me. I will continue to work on eating right. But, since iv formed my exercise habits and I can continue on my eating habits, but iv decided to stop blogging every day about it. I liked having something to have to report to, but now I don't think I need it! So cheers to forming habits!!!
Today I have just felt so happy and thankful for all I have.. So, I decided to make a list of all the things I am loving today
Home made peach jam Benjamin Long lost besties phone calls :) (love Amanda sue) My kitten, rainy, who has been extra amusing today My little boy scouts, even though they drive me crazy every week Benjamins pancakes My sisters My legs, and healthy body Yummy food Cozy clothes The rain, and crisp air My job Bens job What our future holds...
So... Yesterday I ran the big 6 miles.. And I thought my legs would be super sore today but they weren't to bad... Which kind of really annoyed me! My knees were hurting though, but that's not such a good thing. I decided to take it a little bit faster today and run my normal 4 miles. (weird to say that's my normal now, ha). It felt good, but really my knees are killing! I definitely ran faster today, and I also did an insane abs video work out that worked out my quads and belly. It was super hard, I was sweating and grunting through the whole thing.. Kinda pathetic I know. I guess I need to start doing that one a couple times a weak. It was different because he doesn't.t believe in doing crunches so it was lots of high knee jumps, and sitting on the ground at an angle lifting your legs and things. I already feelmit in my quads so I'm happy about that! I had a low fat yogurt for breakfast today, half a whole wheat chicken and tomato sandwich for lunch with a bowl of teriyaki veggies, a protein shake for snack, for dinner peanut butter curry chicken with brown rice and steamed carrots, and later I was STARVING so I had a few frozen blueberries and a peach. Needed to get my fruit in anyways right? Those were definitely after 8 but my stomach was growling and that means I won't be able to sleep. Overall an ok day. I still don't drink enough water and I struggle with not eating past 8.
Anyone know a cure for hurting running knees? How to prevent them?
this is what my weekend looked like. I love the weekend. And I love lake wenatchee.
day 12, 13, 14
it was saturday today, and we were at the cabin.. I still managed to run two miles out in the woods with ben and my MIL, Ginger, but my IPOD was not charged so it was tough! I have to have my music! I did not eat well at all this weekend, ut that is ok. I knew that I would be letting myself have saturday and sunday since we were with family at the cabin, and it was actually good for me! I ate so much crap and I felt extremely sick all weekend. I had little energy, and I actually felt grouchy too! DOn't worry, I still had a blast, watching conference and staying up all night playing games and all. No one plays boulderdash like us beesons. I love playing games with the family! But I also learned how much better I really do feel when I am eating correctly. On monday I had a very long day of work, and since I am just trying to make sure I run 5 days a week I took monday off too. I ate healthy on monday though, oatmeal for breakfast, a banana, backed chicken with tomatoes and a hard boiled egg for din din.
So today I was NOT wanting to go exercise, but of course I did, and it is funny because I ended up running 6 miles today! yes, 6! and it felt so good! the first mile was a little rocky because it was pouring down rain, and I was freezing, and wet, and my muscles were super tight, but once I got through that mile each mile after didn't feel so bad. I actually enjoyed it today. Plus I found some songs that just fit perfect for a long rainy tuesday run. LOVED IT! I had a small bowl of vanilla sunrise, gluten free (healthy) cereal for breakfast, some cherry tomatoes for snack. I had a half of a whole wheat chicken tomato sandwhich and a manderine orange jello cup for lunch. After my run I had a peanut butter banana protien shake, and it was AMAZING! love it. Later, after scouts I had a bowl of carrots and a couple more cherry tomatoes. It was a good day. My legs are a little stiff now, but I like it!
