Since I decided to scrap my long run on Sunday because of the TYS10K tune-up run, I had every intention to do it yesterday. It was a holiday here (Family Day) so I had the day off from work and really had no excuse not to do it. I woke up with the worst headache from eating things I normally don’t eat at my grandmother’s birthday party (hiiiiiiii cake) so my day got started a lot later than anticipated. I drank some water, ate some raw goodness with a side of tylenol, and finally headed to the gym (it was too cold out to run outside).
I got to the gym and told myself, “Today you are going to pull an EMZ and run 14 miles on the treadmill – no excuses”…and that lasted a whole three miles. Then I got bored and decided to lift since I started week six of James Wilson’s program this week. It was shoulder day (my favourite) and I think I was just itching to lift since body part training finally started and I looooove training just 1-2 body part(s) a day rather than doing full body circuits (which is what the first five weeks were like).
I really just wasn’t in the mood to run for a long time and figured skipping one week wouldn’t kill me. Sometimes you just need a break, especially when it’s so dang cold outside. I’ll go into my next long run full force, that’s for sure.
Another thing that didn’t fully happen – last week’s meal plan. I don’t know how I forgot it was Valentine’s Day, so between that and my grandmother’s birthday I ended up eating on the fly a few nights. I think I made about 4/7 of my planned meals. Not too bad, I guess! I am attempting another week and this is what I have planned:
I know you’re wondering what buffalo cauliflower is. Just think buffalo wings…just cauliflower instead of chicken. I found a recipe online that looks delicious and I am so excited to try it.
PS my food plan starts on Tuesday because I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday and also because my dinner wasn’t anything substantial last night. I ate such a late lunch that I just ended up snacking on little things in the evening.
Okay I just got home from work and I missed The Bachelor last night so I think it’s time to catch up now. DO NOT tell me what happens! I’m embarrassed to say I watch that show but I am hooked. It’s actually one of the only shows I watch, along with The Amazing Race and Shameless. That’s it.
Do you ever get the sugar shakes/headaches/food hangovers?
Do you watch TV? Favourite shows?
