I went grocery shopping today and decided I NEEDED ice cream. Ladies, can you guess what time it is around my house? So I decided it was my overeating day. I almost got 8 of the little one serving ones because they were on sale. Then I said "Mertle, you can only overeat one a week. And you've supposed avoid sugar before the cruise. One day is fine but 8 is just driving you down the wrong road" So I just got the java chip, for 210cals. Best way to get my sweet fix since I just buy one and I can't eat it in my car like a snickers bar.
In addition to the ice cream I got a mac and cheese microwave lunch. Noodles, cheese, and gooey warmness YUM! I added hamburger at home to get some protein. When I put everything in the calorie counter I'm 131 calories over my daily allotment. But I haven't worked out at all yet.
There's a chance I could actually not over eat today. So maybe I should change my Winter Warrior goal from overeating to "cheating or eating off the books" less than one day a week. I think I will because I definitely don't feel the need to have a cheat day and an over calorie day. Do you have a cheat day? What's your cheat food?
ALSO I ran 20mins! (on Tuesday I just forgot to tell you) I was thinking of just going 15, and at about minute 13 I really felt like I could go longer than 2 minutes. About minute 18, I was pretty sure I could only do 15 :) but I finished. I ran half at 4.7mph, and half at 4.4. I'm in the mindset now that for a half marathon that I should go for running for a long time not a fast time. Tonight I'm going to go for 25mins, and I'm thinking doing intervals between 5 and 4.5 mph. We'll see.
About a week ago, I ordered 3 things from Amazon, all used which means I'll get 3 different packages. I bought a memory card for my mp3 player so I could have music stay on there and easily add books and talking stuff to the card. #2 Bill Rodgers Lifetime Running Plan. I ruined the one from the library so I had to get a "new to the library" "used on amazon one :)
Look what came in the mail today! #3 The Tracy Anderson Method: Mat Workout. I've been hearing soooooo sooooo much about her workouts I just had to try myself. I guess she moves your body in different ways to attack those muscles differently from curls and crunches. Apparently I'll also turn into Gwyneth Paltrow! Well once I try it I'll give you a review.
Any new workouts you're trying? Or anything sweet you just bought yourself? :)
