Monday. The most productive day of my week, except when it comes to running. I’m still recovering from being sick, and this morning’s run didn’t happen. I set all my clothes out last night, I went to bed thinking about how nice it will be to get a run in at the beginning of my day and be balanced and focused. But this morning, my body had different plans
I went to bed at a decent time, got 7 hours of sleep, but when that alarm went off at 4, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I opted for the extra 90 minutes of sleep and now I feel a lot better. I will have to see about running tonight.
But now that I am thinking about it, do I have to run? Right now, I’m just trying to exercise and be healthier. I know I’ve been talking about cardio and stuff but I mostly run (if I do anything at all). Maybe it’s time to change that up. Maybe tonight I’ll play Dance Dance Revolution with my kids, or Just Dance; and get some movement in that way… I think I need some variety.
Cigarettes. A fellow quitter started back up last week and I was really put to the test as we spend quite a bit of time together and he smelled like cigarettes. I am happy to report, however, that I still have not smoked, and it’s now been 20 weeks. I’ve been drinking pretty heavily, and with some recent family drama regarding alcohol, this might be a good time to revisit my alcohol policy.
Food. Boy have I upped my sugar game. I have been eating so much candy. So. Much. Candy. That has to stop! I really feel awful too, when I go too long without decent food. So this week I’m back to home made Paleo chicken salad for lunch, and back to watching my carbs and getting more protein in my breakfast.
