I know that in retrospect, it's really not a big deal. It's not life or death if I don't get my run in, but I'm trying to take this seriously and I feel like I'm not getting a lot of help or support from anyone in real life. Thankfully, my mother in law is pretty helpful and is willing to take Ben tomorrow morning while Kaiden is in preschool so I can get my run in, but since she watches the boys during the days that I work, I feel bad asking her to take them when it's my day off. :/
Even though I don't really LOVE running yet, I do consider it my "me" time, even though the entire time I'm running I'm cussing at myself, wondering why I'm putting myself through hell. LOL But it's the way I feel afterwards that keeps pushing me forward - I feel incredible and working out and running are really the only things I do that is truly for myself.
I didn't eat too badly today. When I don't work out, I like to keep my calories at about 1300, but since I'd planned on running this evening, I had an afternoon snack, which helped put me over. I guess I could have skipped my second snack (the ice cream), but that was my sweet treat for the day and I had really been looking forward to it, so I indulged. :)
Just trying to keep my eye on the prize - a great weigh in on Friday and hopefully meet my goal for April!
- lunch - chili dog (372), doritos (140)
- dinner -chili dog (384), cottage cheese (168)
- snack - cottage cheese (244), snickers ice cream bar (180)
Not bad. Not awesome, since I didn't do anything physical today, but at least I feel pretty good about my choices.
