Arguing with Myself

Yesterday started with a 4 mile run and a little over one mile with the girls.  Since I have allowed myself to take walk breaks, I noticed yesterday that I was talking myself into needing a break.

Luckily, I have my Garmin heart rate monitor to keep me honest.  At one point my brain was saying, “AhMahGah, I’m so tired. I can’t breath. I need a break.” When I looked at my heart rate, I was only at 173.  Ha! Not even up to my normal steady state pace rate (which is 176). So I started running again!

It’s amazing how much energy I suddenly had! Stupid brain.

This is where listening to music would come in handy.  I could spend less time arguing with myself and just get lost in a song. Unfortunately, I have only ran with music a few times and I get a little motion sickness.

Weirdo.

The girls laid next to me while I put my feet up the wall.  They were worn out too.

After getting everyone moving around here, I headed to Pilates.  It felt so good while being super challenging.

After eating some lunch, we headed over to my sister’s new house.  I haven’t been over there since I helped her move and it looks so nice!  She is very crafty and DIY, so I got lots of good ideas. It was like walking through a real life Pinterest!

Meals

Meal #1: Gluten free oats with protein powder

Meal #2: Two eggs and two slices of gluten free toast. I almost forgot to snap a picture.  Inhaled the other egg and toast before I remembered.

Meal #4: Chicken thighs and ice burg lettuce with blue cheese dressing and bacon crumbles.

We wrapped up the day with watching Big Brother. Oooooh, it was a good one! I won’t ruin it in case you had to record it, but it was exciting!

Daylight is finally peaking out, time to lace my running shoes. See you tomorrow, Friends!
