Ugh, I gotta clean that mirror again…
Anyway, today I strapped the waist trainer belt thing and put the one pound gloves on for my run. I was reading how if you are going run every day, at least some of those days need to be short, easy runs to prevent injury and spare my joints. As I am a plus size gal, I have to take a great deal of care with my knees and ankles. I put the treadmill at 3.3 mph and left it there for ten-minute intervals with a one-minute break in between and a three minute cool down at the end. My heart rate stayed around 150-157 and even my arms got some extra work with the weights on. It may have been a short run but it felt productive.
As for my food, I was bad and skipped breakfast today and just had almonds and popcorn for most of the day. I was not hungry at all but I made up for it at dinner.
Baked chicken breasts and broccolini with salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika. I had enough left over so I get to have it for lunch tomorrow. I tasted delicious so, I don’t mind at all.
I had enough calories left over for a cup of cookies and cream ice cream afterward, too. And yes, actually ONE cup. Not just ‘ZOMG CALORIES’ but I don’t enjoy large amounts of sweet things. I will actually eat a proper serving because that’s all I can take. In fact, I usually don’t bother to buy ice cream because it takes me so long to finish a container, it gets that ice fuzz on it before I’m even halfway through it and I end up throwing it out.
Or, my kid sneaks and eats it when she thinks I don’t know.
If I had a complaint to myself about today, it would be that I didn’t move around over the whole course of the day. I have my Atlas Shape set to vibrate every 30 minutes if I’m being lazy and I was so sleepy, I did not care.
But hey! I finally finished season 2 of Zombies Run! And that’s including all the special Halloween and other side missions. The app is currently up to season 6 so I have plenty to catch up on. And I have the Spring virtual race coming up. It would be nice if I could set a personal record with this race but I am not stressing it. I’m just moving forward.
