OK. So yesterday I told you about the bike ride. I also told you that I was going to lift weights. Didn't happen. Ugh. Sometimes life happens and the time slips by.(go ahead and shake your finger at me. I deserve it.) Today those weights will be lifted whether they like it or not!! They can protest all they want but those weights will be lifted repeatedly. And I shall laugh at them.
Yesterday I tried on some running gear. Why, oh why, do all of the tops fit so tight and show all my belly bulges? And why must my booty hang out of all the shorts?! I left feeling not too happy. Maybe I'll embrace the bulge and just get some clothes and be done with it. Really I want new clothes so I'm not always posting me wearing the same thing! Must fashionize the exercise routines. ;)
Then grocery store. Not my favorite chore. But I did find these low carb margarita, mojito and pina colada mixes on clearance!! These are really good and 0 calories. Well, the pina colada has a few but it's not bad.
Guess what Kroger has by the water flavoring mixes. Sugar free electrolyte tablets! Hellz yeah I bought some but I haven't tried them yet. They're a little pricey ($5.99 I think) but cheaper than the nasty Nathan tablets I bought at the running store.
How did these make it home with me?! And this is the big boy bag. 12 ounces. I've had 4 (M&Ms, not 4 bags). Feel free to applaud my self control because these babies are good! Oh, and there is another bag that snuck home with me that's not pictured here. Maybe I'm just starting to ease into island time for this weekend. Mojito and pina colada mix? Coconut M&Ms. Hmmm.
I love cooking up some good dinners but some nights I'd rather chew broken glass than get in the kitchen. On those nights I have to get creative (in other words, embrace the lazy Kelly). So I bought 4 baked chicken breasts at the grocery store, some salad mix, real bacon bits (none of that fake crap for me lol), shredded cheese and instant dinner. It was really quite good! Served in my elegant plastic storage container. I'm not only lazy but classy! ;)
The scale was sweet talking me this morning. 175.4! Now if I can only get it to say 160. But after my run it said 173.8!! Water loss.
Had a run scheduled this fine Thursday morning. I'm not a morning person but I'm slowly changing that. I'm loving the sunrises so much. They're just so pretty and each one is different.
|Sorry it's blurry. I paused the Garmin during a run segment to take the pic so my heart was probably pounding and made for a blurry pic. :)|
Well, color me shocked! I did pretty good!
25 minutes, 2.1 miles, 11:56 pace, avg HR 162 bpm
Did you see that? In the 11s! I know that's not fast but it's pretty darn fast for me! My running interval splits were:
11:18, 11:18, 11:17, 11:23, 10:19 Yay!
Time for weekly picture update.
Half marathon training week 7. I really don't see a difference from week 1 but the weight is down and the clothes are fitting quite nicely.
I'm SO excited!!!!! Tomorrow I leave for Galveston. I love that island. Almost moved there once. ;)
Have yourself a fantastic day.
