Today wasn't as great on the eating or motivation side. I only lost 0.2 lbs this week, I'm glad it's in the right direction but I was hoping for a bit more. The rash I have from the one med is just creating dry skin which means I'm itchy all the time all over. I tried an oatmeal face mask and using oatmeal body wash. It's getting better but frustrating. I was pretty hungry when I got home so I had a snickers bar.....then I was hungry a little later so I had another. Two bad choices made mainly because I was feeling down. But I heard someone say their niece ate snickers before marathons. So I took this to mean I could eat snickers and it will help my work out. Maybe this is a little faulty thinking but after I ate the second snickers I felt like I HAD to go to the gym. Like I only get the treat if I promise to work out.
Well I told myself I'd run as much as I could on the treadmill mostly some intervals and stay at least 1/2 hr. After 5mins of warming up I ran a WHOLE MILE!!! Thats only the second time I've ever run an entire mile. It's like I started running for just 6 mins and then my brain was like your skin is itchy, and all these little things are going wrong but your body CAN do this. You can run a mile!! I'm so proud of myself for doing that and not letting the little things get me down. After I walked 3mins then ran another 3 mins, and I walked faster than usually. Then I did 20mins on the arc trainer, too. My feet started hurting so I'm really looking forward to my new shoes!
