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.
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!
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 #3: Snacked on tortilla chips and french onion dip.
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!
