First of all, thank you for all the positive comments about the Mizuno Mezamashii Project video. I really appreciate all the support!
For the next four weeks, my brother has a new schedule at work. This means instead of picking up my niece at 12:30 pm, he will be dropping her off at 7:30 am.
Since she will be here in the mornings and all day, my workouts and 15k training will have to change a bit.
The part I am most nervous about is the 15k training. I have been really good about sticking to the plan and running three days a week, including a long run on the weekend. I also have a 5k the next three weekends in a row, so that throws things off too.
I think I figured out a plan – I will run one night a week after Danny gets home from work, wake up at 5:30 am one morning a week to run before Danny goes to work, and then continuing doing my long run on the weekend.
This Sunday, I’m running a Mother’s Day 5k with my family, so I am going to try and fit in my long run on Friday morning – that way my legs will hopefully be rested for Sunday. Even though my long run is only 6 miles (I’m building up endurance) my calves still get very tight and sore.
Last year’s Mother’s Day 5k:
The only day I’m really worried about is the night runs. I have never really ran in the evening, so it’ll probably take some getting used to, but you gotta do what you gotta do!
Although, I haven’t weighed myself lately, I know that I have gained a few pounds. I am slowly falling back into my old eating habits of eating what I want, when I want. This is what caused me to gain weight in the first place, and I refuse to gain back all the weight that I lost.
For example, yesterday I got into a run-in with a box of teddy grahams. The teddy grahams won.
This is why I liked competing in the Diet Bets because they made me feel like I was being held accountable to someone other than myself. So, starting today, I will be writing down everything I eat, stick to healthy foods, and stay within 1500 calories a day. I am more focused on eating healthy and feeling good than I am a number on the scale.
Jaden has officially started t-ball!
That means lots of t-ball practices, games, and fun!
- Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes
I have a pretty bad cold so my workouts haven’t been very intense these last few days. Hopefully, I’ll start to feel better soon!
After my workout, I had a Chobani caramel pineapple yogurt. These need to come in a bigger size – they’re so good!
Have a great afternoon!
