I left work at 3 today because I felt like crap. Tired, bloated, just blech. I know its because of all the crap I’ve been eating since Sunday night. I haven’t been overeating but I have been eating way, way too many processed carbs. I know they wreak havoc on my blood sugar, I know I will feel like crap, I know I gain water/sodium weight and yet I still do it. I am insane.
I came home, and all I wanted to do was fall into bed and sleep all night. I could easily have done that. I told myself I would do the 45 minutes “later”. I got undressed and looked at the treadmill. I *knew* I wouldn’t do it later. So…I put on my running shoes and just did it. I watched an episode of House while walking and although the time did not fly by – it was pretty quick. And when I was done – wow – I felt so much better! I was a hot, sweaty mess but I felt energized and happy and better than I have felt in the last three days. A hot shower and my favourite shower gel and I am practically a new person!!!
45 minutes and 1.71 miles. My goal is to get up to 2 miles in 45 minutes.
Me – hot, sweaty mess but feeling great.
