After five days, I'm feeling good. I've been running short distances - last week was a week of mainly a mile a time. There were a few longer runs. I had a longer run planned for today, but bailed on it at the last minute because my hip is super tight. It's time for some pigeon pose.
I didn't really face any challenges this week. But when I'm not tied to the number on scale, the challenges are less. I've committed to drinking more water, which has been surprisingly easy. I usually drink water, but over the holidays I fell off the water wagon. I've been working on incorporating more fruits and vegetables into my meals. Apples, oranges, spinach, squash, bananas, grapes. Things that have been on-hand and easily available. Expect more vegetables to enter the mix in the upcoming weeks. I need to grocery shopping and I'm not really a fan. What are your favorite vegetables?
The company I work for provides unlimited snacks for employees. It includes, fruit, granola bars, chips, cookies, string cheese and carrots, etc... They also provide breakfast items. Pop Tarts, bagels, hot and cold cereal and yogurt etc... We also have lunch catered every Friday. My plan is to pack my lunch Monday - Thursday, supplementing it with fruit, and vegetables at the office and I'm eating the catered lunch on Friday.
Today I was thinking about the changes and gaging them by my clothes. There are those jeans I'd like to be wearing by this summer... And then I thought, what if I take a picture every Sunday? Week to week, the changes will be minor. But between today and the last Sunday in December of this year, we should see something interesting.
So while, I'm not happy about the picture in the interest of being real, this is me, tonight. On a side note, I think I need better lighting in my bedroom. The shorts will return each week. While I can't guarantee the exact same sports bra, I'll be in a sports bra.
|Not exactly the body of a runner. Sigh... But I'll get there.|
