Dreary Wednesday

Winding down the day and figure now is a good time for an update…not a lot to update today but hey, I can kill a few minutes if I do.

I was exhausted yesterday when I got home…I don’t know if it was the day I had at work or what (and by the way, I ran into the one that made the complaint about me in the elevator leaving and she was a friendly and nice like nothing had happened…see, MN nice) but I didn’t do anything except make dinner when I got home. I watched some TV and by 7:45 realized what’s the point in staying up. I was tired, there wasn’t anything I wanted to watch right then and I could tape the show I wanted to watch and watch it this weekend…so that’s what I did. I was asleep by 8:30 I would guess…roommate had left and taken dog with her, I heard her come back, I actually had to use the bathroom anyway so I got up at 11:30 and then took about a half hour to get back to sleep cause mind was racing…but I did, and slept till 5:30, when dog decided to come barking at my door (roomies door had been closed when I got out of the bathroom, so no idea why it had to be opened and dog allowed run of house and barkability by my door again), I managed to get back to sleep again for a while but then of course alarm went off. Anyway, I was up and to work on time…been trying to get a lot done today and have been semi-productive I think. Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be spending going through boxes…oh what fun…I did get a workout at lunch, ran 4 miles on the treadmill, and dreaded every step of it. My leg was still quite tight, I did some stretching and eventually it was feeling better, but the 4 miles still drug on…35:03. I did 20 minutes of strength training and am going to try to do my yoga strength DVD tonight as well. We’ll see how that goes. A part of me had considered running tonight outside as well, but now I’m not so sure…I’m cold, to make it worthwhile I really should run at least 5-6 miles (for all the bundling up I have to do) and I don’t think I have the ambition/energy for it, but it would keep me out of the house longer and away from the food that I can’t seem to stay away from. Sigh…this struggle to stop snacking is tough…and it’s the only way I’m going to drop those pesky pounds. I know, I know, I don’t NEED to lose it, but it’s just something I want, and I honestly do believe it will help my running.

firefly's right - hang in there - it'll all pass. Eat salty and spicy snacks that are low fat, and go kick the dog (okay, not really, it's just a quote from the Cats & Dogs movie.) You're ability to get out and run in the cold inspires me - you are seriously dedicated - I ran 2 days last week - that's it, and it wasn't much below 30 degrees. Be proud of yourself.
