I'm doing the single mom thing from Wednesday to Saturday this week which means I've had to adjust my workout plans. Usually I get up and go running 3 mornings during the week and then get in one run on the weekends. But since I won't be able to go for a run the whole second half of the week my plan is to run Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed. So far, so good although I really wanted to skip this morning. So I'm asking y'all to kick my butt if I skip one of the next two days. Wednesday will be the hardes after staying up to watch BL but it needs to happen.
The new rules are in part to help me with the challenge but also because I saw myself slipping. A few more diet sodas, a little less water. A few too many processed snacks and not enough fruit/veggies/wholesome foods. So the new rules:
1. If I want a soda there has to be 1 liter of water into me first. That goes for every soda I want. 3 sodas today? 3 liters of water first.
2. One processed snack during the day and one during the evening for now. Processed snacks for me are 100 cal packs, crackers, cookies, pudding. I am not considering my homemade granola bars or my yogurt processed.
This morning I left the house at 5:30 for a 3 mile run. About 2/3 of the way through I landed wrong on a stone and rolled my right ankle something good. Cursed for a few minutes then hobbled a few steps to test it out all the while wondering how long it would take me to hobble the rest of the way home. A car slowed on the other side of the road and offered me a lift home. She must have saw what happened and looped around. By that time I knew that I could at least walk if not run the rest of the way so I thanked her anyway, but I thought it was so nice of her to do that!!!
