I have to admit something. I have been eating like crap lately. And I hate it. It doesn't make me feel good, or make my body function well. I have been trying to avoid addressing it because my workouts have been so great lately. But I can't anymore. I just don't like the way I feel, physically or mentally. I need to get it under control.
So no more junk. No more eating school food. No more not measuring portions of things I know I should be measuring. It is so easy for me to lie to myself, and I need to get past that habit. Hence the confession.
I love that at any moment, we can start fresh. We don't have to wait for the next morning, or the next Monday, or the next January 1st. Do you have a habit that needs changing? Do it. Do it. Do it now. Because you can, and because you will feel better.
My positive for the day was an awesome 2 mile run on the treadmill after work. I am seriously beginning to love the treadmill, and that is something I never thought I'd say. I finished the run strong at 5mph, (well, the last 1oth of a mile, anyway), and you know what? It was just a little easier than the last time I was at that speed. I'm so excited to see where training is going to take me over the next three/four months.
(Lastly, I am feeling very bloated and crampy. For the obvious female reason, but that doesn't mean I'm not annoyed! Time to double up on my daily water intake.)
