I really really really hate daylight savings time. I hate it getting dark at 5pm for the next what seems like forever. I hate it being dark on my way to and from work. I hate it. Blah!
Anyways, yesterday was my husband birthday. 42 years young. I chose his birthday to be my nonketo day since I am trialing a more relaxed keto. We went out to dinner to a new italian place and it was so so so yummy! I wish I would have taken pictures, omg it was so good.
But I woke up this morning feeling yucky. Fingers swollen. Dehydrated. Feel like a slug.
Granted I did planned to only indulge for the one meal and it ended up being a full day of carbs carbs and a side of carbs. I really need to stick to one meal.
But this morning I was right back on track - which is not normally like me.... I would have wanted the chocolate chip pancakes the kids had or the CANDY but nope... Im back.
Today I also saw a photo of my amazing niece in 9th grade at a cross country meet... omg does she look fierce and strong and amazing! Last summer she wasn't sure she wanted to do cross country. She had never really ran before. BUT the coach talked her into it and she put her head down and put in the work and boy does it show. I am so proud of her!!!!!
It reminded me that I have a 1/2 marathon in April. This past 2 years I have SUCKED at running. I keep hoping to get my runners high back and sign up for race after race and then my training goes out the window and I defer or lose my money.
I REFUSE to do that again.
So I have 24 1/2 weeks until my race... a nice long time to get my ass in gear and not slack off until there is only 6 weeks left! That feeling is HORRIBLE and I do not want to feel it again.
Tonight I sat down and made my training plan. I planned 6 days but some of the workouts will happen on the same days - like an easy run and my weight training. So some weeks will be 6 days, some shorter. Some if Im feeling awesome, maybe I will add another day of yoga or a hill repeater or speed workout. Who knows.
