SO yesterday was NOT a good day for me.
First the night before I could NOT sleep... didnt fall asleep until almost 4am and had to get up with G for school at 7. I felt ROUGH. So I took G to school and came home going right back to bed. I didnt get up until 11! But that ruined my morning plans of a run or workout.
I had planned to meet a friend for sushi for lunch after her run - I almost canceled because I just felt like crud but I wanted to go... so I went. I am so incredibly proud of my friend Nicole. She was the one I started running with and wow she has come a LONG way. She looks AMAZING. Her legs are so tiny now! She glows. She just has "it" and it shows. She has found her mojo.
And seeing where she is health wise and mental wise - while yes I am so happy for her - it made me realize where I used to be. Where I am so NOT right now. And I miss having that amazing feeling that it is so obvious that she has right now. Which really didnt make me good company at lunch unfortinately.
I followed that lunch with going to look for something cute to wear out the night after the marathon... umm so not in the right mental place to try on clothes, what the hell was I thinking?!?
I followed that with adding to the unhealthiness by talking my family into mexican food... wth was I thinking!?! ... By the time we got home I was just ready for bed and the headache didnt help so I just went to bed. The best thing I could have done.
This morning I got up and signed up for SparkPeople.com... one of the things Nicole had brought up at lunch. Today I documented all my food - even when I had two poptarts and really didnt want to document that... wow 400 freaking calories for 2 poptarts... so not worth it! After work I came home and hit the gym - tons of jumping jacks, jump rope, upper body weights, squats, wall sits, and abs, abs and some more abs.
7 days till marathon! Im getting up tomorrow morning for a nice 8-10 mile run.
