So can't recall if I mentioned that I went for a kick ass walk late yesterday afternoon/ early evening.
It was really good because it was an hour long, and I hoofed it. My knees really felt it. I noticed when I got home that I had the lovely aroma of ammonia wafting out of my pours. Apparently some of us with too much protein in our diet have sweat that has a high percentage of ammonia. WTF? I east so little protein it's ridiculous. I totally don't get that one. So hopefully by upping my water intake I'll be able to make it a little less stinky in the world. Don't hold your breath though (ok, maybe you should)
I was going to go to the gym this morning before work, but apparently I decided to sleep in a bit - so I will go after work now. Even though I'm tired and hungry, I'll still go with a smile plastered on my face.
I am planning on starting my 0-5K program tonight. I'm really interested to see how I do. I've never been a runner - although I've wanted to run. I dream about it. It's actually one of my relaxation techniques. So I thought I should actually give it a go.
Wish me luck!
As for food - I feel like I'm a little low today.
So far this is what I've had:
Breakfast: Apple and Cheese, Tea.
Snack: Refrigerator Oatmeal (Raspberry)
Lunch: Lean Cuisine, Raw Veggies, Babybel Cheese, Mandarin Orange.
I still have for a pre-gym workout another apple and babybel.
I'm drinking water with Lime today. I'm finding the lime a bit on the sour side - not sure I'll do that tomorrow. Seeing how I have been having a bit of a caffeine headache, I've taken some Tylenol and am now drinking Crystal Light - let's hope this helps because I really want to have the energy to work out tonight.
I'm telling you - giving up pop and coffee are going to be 2 of the hardest things for me. I don't even want to talk about McDonald's!!
I just keep telling myself (well a few weeks ago when it was bugging me - I really wanted fish and chips or KFC) that it's never going to taste as good as I think it will. It never does, and it always makes me feel like heaving it all up. Oil. Bleck.
Besides, hello!! I don't want Gallbladder issues, so I really want to keep as much fried and fatty food out of my diet.
Mike is making dinner tonight - chicken with peppers, onions baked in pasta sauce. Pasta on the side.
If I have any calories left after dinner and tea, I'm going to have fresh fruit with Creme Freche as a treat. We'll see.
So to recap: I'm pooped, headachy, moany and still in good spirits and ready to do day 1 of my 0-5k.
I'd say that's a decent day so far.
