We had a fun day working in the store yesterday. It was difficult to get there. It had been snowing all night so the road was slippery and even icy sometimes. The drive should have been an hour to get there but we got there after a 2-hour drive. We were supposed to work till 6 pm but as the weather forecasted more snow we left a 4 pm so we would get home before it started to snow again. The drive home was good, we were home in an hour. I have been walking and standing all day so my legs were very tired last night, I did nothing more than lying on the couch watching some tv and reading.
Eating wasn’t good yesterday, they had a big lunch for us (see what’s for dinner) but good news: I didn’t snack last night.
As we leave January behind us I spend some time thinking how this month has been for me.
Working out wasn’t as I planned https://dutchgirlgetshealthy.wordpress.com/2010/01/31/workout-goals-january-2010/
In the eating department I’m satisfied. I’ve lost 1.4 kg / 3 lbs. this month which is good for me.
I’ve decided to stop setting goals. My focus in February is eating healthy (keep counting those WW points) and work-out as planned and by doing that I will lose slowly so more weight.
Even though a bit of snow has fallen last night, the weather today is perfect: clear blue sky and sunshine. So I wanted to go for a run. What I didn’t know and found out as soon as I started running was that my legs are still very tired of yesterday. So when I was running I decided to see how it goes and it didn’t go very well so it has been a short round today but better doing something than doing nothing at all, right?
Weather: ± 5 C / 41 degrees, sunny and clear blue sky.
Distance: 3K / 1.8 miles
Average speed: 7.26 /km
When I came home and told R. about my short run he said “you’re getting weak”. He meant by that that I hardly run long distances anymore and he’s right. I looked it up and since my first 10K in September last year, my longest run since then has been 8K and that was beginning of October.
My next 10K run is scheduled mid April so I really need to get into longer runs than just 5 or 6K. Starting next week with this.
What’s for dinner:
Friday night I’ve made a chicken curry for myself with some basmati rice. It was really delicious.
Yesterday evening I ate some bread as I had a big lunch in the afternoon.
Even though my legs hurt I did a short run.
You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
