Hey Ladies, thanks for the support, encouragement and comments. I think my periods hit me hard because I'm battling anemia right now. I caved in and got 'veggie-friendly' supplement. Ugh. I resisted for as long as I could but my stores are in the toilet and it's starting to have an impact on too many areas of my life. I managed to get through all my work outs last week but was delirious. I honestly, could've fallen asleep at my desk. I won't worry about that so much now. I've got another 23 or so days of freedom before it strikes again.
Pamela, I went to the East India Company. I wanted to do a 5K on Canada Day but all we seem to have is a 10K run or a 3K walk. It looks like I'll go to Toronto and do theirs... I'll see where I'm at in my training by the big race weekend and then decide.
Today was my rest day. I did not go to the gym. I thought about the gym a lot. I almost went in. I resisted. Thankfully. I got a lot of sleep last night and I'm still tired. I might go down now for a power nap before I head out to meet my friend.
I decided to start counting calories. After lunch I was under 900. I have not yet calculated dinner. I will do so later.
Tonight I received my first delivery of macrobiotic home cooking! I ordered a few soups, a grain dish and a veggie dish. All of them good for freezing. It's to get me out of a bind when I just don't have time/energy. It's good vegan food and tasty! I had the tamari vegetable soup tonight. There was a bit of whole wheat pasta in there and I added some tofu. It was awesome. I look forward to trying more of the dishes.
Here's a link to the web site, sadly they don't have a menu up there...
I'm excited about training with Andrew tomorrow. I'm hoping we can change up my leg exercises. I hate what I'm doing now and my knees don't care for it either. I hope I can get up early enough to do half my cardio before my session. I don't think I have it in me to work another 10 to 6 work day... not on a Friday. I hope I can get into work by 9 at the latest. Fingers crossed.
My goals for tomorrow are:
- Get up early for some cardio
- Eat clean
- Keep calories under 1600
- Get extra rest
I can't wait to sleep in on Saturday!!!
