I’m still fighting to lose the weight I’ve gained Thursday night at the tapas night. Every time I have a dinner or something else where I eat more than I usually do, I’m gaining weight. I only have to look at food and I’ve gained it seems.
Yesterday morning I did another 50 minute run and a bit faster than last week.
4 more weeks and my 10K training is finished, in 6 weeks I have my first 10K run so I’m ready in time. Every training I feel more confident about myself and I know I’m going to finish the 10K in September.
To keep running after this run I planned four more races, one on November 1st, this is a 6K run which is in the woods with lots of hills. I’m not used to that so it’s a challenge. The second one is a 10K run in my hometown, start is 5 minutes from my house. The third is a 10K run in the woods nearby the village I grew up and the area there is beautiful. And the last one is the Nike Ladies City Run in April.
I want to do two more races between January and April. In May there’s another run in my village which I want to do also.
Today I had a lunchwalk with my colleague and girlfriend K. for 30 minutes.
I did my intervaltraining immediate after work, before dinner and it went terrible. I didn’t finish the training completely: it was too hot, my legs weren’t cooperating and I couldn’t get my breathing under control. So I did only 2.7 km/1.7 miles in 21 minutes.
What’s for dinner:
Sunday smoothie: I forgot to make a picture but it was a smoothie of strawberries, nectarines and orange juice and it was delicious.
Yesterday I made chicken soup which we ate with bread. For dessert a bit of ice cream.
Today I filled a bread with minced meat, bacon, onions, salad and tomatoes. It tasted very well.
Yesterday was a relaxing day. After my morning run I made a meal plan what I always do on Sunday. And I’ve been working on one of my cross stitching works. Cross stitching is one of my hobbies. I don’t like to work at the same work the whole time so I have 11 works on which I’m working right now. It’s a lot I know and I probably will be working on it for years and years but that doesn’t matter: I’ve got the time. Yesterday I worked on this one:
Today was a working day, I had a lot to talk about with K. whom I didn’t see for 3 weeks. She returned to work today after a vacation in Washington and New York. And I’ve been running as said before. Tonight I’m going to watch Private Practice. They’re airing two episodes. We are somewhere halfway season 2, we’re always behind compared to the US.
Positive today was:
Talking to K. again, I missed her!
A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
