Good Morning and Happy Thursday everyone 🙂
Zach and I enjoyed our favorite evening last night, pizza night with a good vanilla lager.
We may do pizza a little too much in our house…but I guess I am OK about that.
Have I mentioned how much I love sleeping in? Maybe once or twice?
Yesterday morning I slept in and postponed my work out because my body needed it. On Thursdays, we start work late so I was able to just sleep in an extra hour and a half and still fit in a quick and sweaty work out before the morning even started.
Workout of the Day: 4 miles on the treadmill: Easy pace
Because I am wanting to save my legs for 5 or 6 days in a row of running (3 days down), I am trying to switch up my runs. Outdoor, speed, easy, etc so I am working different muscles.
Let’s just say I was thankful for an easy run and the decision to take an ice bath last night. Yup!
That leads me to 53.5 miles towards my goal of Pile on the Miles 2013! I know I’ve gotta keep a good pace up to meet my goal of 100 by the end of November, but I am confident and I WILL keep pushing hard 🙂
Zach and I don’t own a scale. 99 days out of 100, this is a good thing. But this morning I woke up feeling like I had honestly gained 10 lbs…yes this happens. In stead of beating myself up, I ran, figuring I would feel better after. Welp, I didn’t. When I was showering and getting ready, my stomach still felt super weighed down and heavy.
While I try to NOT rely on the scale…I DID decide to hop on the scale we have here to work to see if my weight had actually fluctuated at all. I have no idea if the scale is accurate, but it’s the only one I use and I can at least judge consistency.
Welp, shockingly enough (sarcasm) I hadn’t gained 10 lbs, and actually was right where I always am. Just seeing that helped me to feel better. In stead of saying “oh I’m fine…moving on” I decided that my body was still telling me something, and reached for a big glass of water and am making an effort to drink more water today.
While the scale may have helped me to feel better, I am still choosing to NOT let it dictate what my body is telling me overall and trying to still be forward thinking in feeling better. H20 will be my friend today.
And that my friends, is my long story of the morning :). I have a guest post planned for this afternoon, so stay tuned! 🙂
Question of the Morning: Do you have a reliance on the scale? Does your weight fluctuate a lot?
