This morning I have a heap of plans I want to execute however the comfort of my bed is winning.
I need to duck out and pick up a new external portable hard drive. The one I currently have has died and I need to try and remove all that was on there, onto a new one which could prove difficult due to the fact my laptop doesn’t read it.
Second, I need to go for a run this morning, even if its only 10 minutes. Hoping 10 minute spurts will keep me motivated for the moment. Who knows, I might run a little longer once I’m on the treadmill.
Third, I need to find some new recipes for lunches next week, Tuna and corn for lunch doesn’t inspire me every day so that’s when I start to drift off track. I’m thinking of cooking some quinoa and mixing that in some kinda of salad. It should be able to cook while I do that 10 minute run.
Lastly, #boyfie has football at 1.30pm today so I need to get all the above done by then so I can cheer him on in the freezing cold. That means I should probably move from my current coziness and get up,
I am hoping however, I can get some kicking practice in while we are at football, That’s a directive of my physio so I’ve got to at least try do it. It does make me happy to kick a football again. It feels like little bursts of freedom coming of my boot, waiting to be caught and taken advantage of.
Also, found this event. Totally want to do it so gotta do a little more research but pretty keen. Take a look.
We are one third through this month of December and it’s about time I gave you an update on my December Challenge. The challenge set forth was 75km of running for the month. Here in Australia we are on the 11th day of December.
I have ran a total of 29.861km. 🙂 It is 5.754km behind last month but I also included walking last month so I think I am tracking ok.
If I keep this same pace up, I should finish with about 90km racked up for the entire month. However, with Christmas almost upon us, some days are going to be a write off (eg: My work Christmas Party & Christmas Day) so while I can, I have to bring in the km’s.
How about an update on the healthy eating and weight loss?
Well, that’s been a little off balance the last two weeks. 😦 How about that 1kg (or 900g really!) I lost two weeks ago? Well, I have put back on in the last two weeks. 😦 This week I am going to try really hard and get back into my healthy eating and 1000 cal limit.
Now that its getting into warmer weather here, I am finding it difficult to run outside because it stays warm right until dark and I don’t want to run outside, alone, in the dark. My treadmill is great and I love using it and seeing myself exceed speeds and km’s but I like the freshness of the air outside. I may have to consider running in the mornings on the weekends and treadmill through the week.
I am still a little disappointed with my progress but everyone has ups and downs. I just need to keep pushing through those small set backs and leap ahead when I am feeling right.
I ran last night on my treadmill even though I was feeling like crap and pushed my body to run at 11km/h for 20 minutes. I originally had set a goal for 30 minutes but after eating dinner and feeling sick, I thought a 20 minute stint would be ample and at least I did some form of exercise instead of sitting on the couch.
Another run is on the cards tonight and with it being 29 degrees here today,I dare say it will be another treadmill workout.
Stay good for Santa. 😉 (There is only 14 sleeps!!!)
So, it’s been one week since Istartedrestarted my healthy eating plan. I’m not going to lie and say it was perfect and easy because IT WASN’T. I had a few setbacks. I had pizza on Friday because my boss really wanted it and I felt really bad saying no again. Actually, Friday in general was a horrible day for me with lunch and the A-League. Luckily, I had been pretty good during the week that I got off scott free. (Won’t be trying that again too often!)
Anyway, today was revised weigh-in number 1. Well.. How did I go?
I lost 1.1kg. It was such a great feeling and a better start to the week than last week. Only 4kg to go in a time span of about 5 weeks. It’s totally doable and I know with the right help and frame of mind, I can achieve it.
Today has been pretty good so far but it’s only half over. I’ve downed 2 water bottles already and am looking forward to using my treadie while X-Factor is on tonight. 🙂 One more week until physio and hopefully I can run. YAY!
