Easing into it..
Saturday, January 21, 2012
This week has been rough. It's that dread time for this lady, and I'm retaining water like nobody's business. I'm still fighting with chest congestion. I'm consistently hacking up yuck instead of coughing, so I'm hoping I'll be done with it soon.
I tried today to get back into the groove of the Couch to 5k program. When I got sick, I was starting to do well with Week 5. I tried that today, and either I was going too fast, or I am just out of practice. Since I was running 15 minute miles, I'm going to say out of practice. I was exhausted 25 minutes into it, so walked the rest of the loop and called it : 2 miles, 30 minutes.
My eating has been less than ideal. With the partial day Monday, I've been working late at work to make up the time to get my hours. I have not been cooking because I'm exhausted mentally when I get home. We've eaten out 3 times this week. =/ I'm staying within range, but I know I shouldn't be eating pizza, a corn dog, and a burger all in the same week. Dylan sweetly cooked Eggplant Parmesan last night. I need to quit making excuses and clean up my eating. Tell myself "Suck it up, buttercup!". There is always the crockpot.
In a non-scale victory news, I can now wear my size 16 pants! They aren't the most flattering or comfortable pants yet, but I can fit in them! These pants are cut just right for my hips and rump, so when they fit better, I will look dynamite in them. I really need to go through and purge clothing that is too big, but that will be a task for another day.
