Call me carboloaded. Yesterday after my toast dinner and iPhone post before spin, I was STARVING. I ate my second granola bar of the day before spin. I was driving and literally could not stop thinking about the fact that there was one in my glove compartment. Carb cravings from lack of sleep much? Whatever.
Spin didn’t hurt! I didn’t push myself with tension, which is not easy for me (I am really bad at “easy” workouts), but I know to be smart about this hip! I am looking forward to a full speedy recovery and I know what it takes. 🙂
Afterwards, I still felt like I pushed it, at least according to my hungry belly. Even though my eyes were struggling to stay open, I was hungry enough for a snack — chocolate (dessert!), walnuts, and honey on greek yogurt. I started to eat a few handfuls of the chocolate when I realized just what was about to happen. I wanted to binge. In the past being really tired and stressed about school and about having eaten what I thought was “too much” or just differently than normal (2 packs of granola bars, 4 pieces of bread, and tons of cereal in a day seem like a lot to me but then I realized that it’s not a lot and that I don’t always eat such a boring, grain-filled diet so I really shouldn’t beat myself up) would have set me up for a bad night. Then I remembered that regardless of what I may or may not have done wrong that day (not doing enough homework, eating too much chocolate, not getting my laundry or chores done, whatever!) is NOT a reason to make myself feel bad or punish myself with food. I had an extra long shower instead and went to bed relaxed…but only after posing the question to a few friends: How would you feel about a blogging name change?
Get excited guys. I know it’s mean of me to leave you on the edge of your seat, but there are ch ch ch ch ch ch changes a-comin’! It’s not that I don’t continue to eat, play, and love…but I know who I want to be in the blogosphere and I hope you guys will follow along with me when I make the switch.
This morning I woke up hungry again. I can’t even blame cold weather or extra exercise. I think when I don’t work out as much or as hard I actually FEEL hunger! Maybe eating more (closer to what I really need?) is re-awakening my metabolism? Maybe I’m burning through the carbs like I should be? Anyways, I had cereal and milk this morning (doubled my half serving to a full one — I know I should eat more earlier in the day because I will burn through it and because I don’t want to feel hungry during my swim or ravenous by the time I get to my real breakfast!).
Swim was good today! We did drills but the hour went by really fast. I think with the kicking I did after it was about 2100 for me. Short course, so that’s a whole lot of me wishing I knew how to do a flip turn. I was hungry for bread after my swim so I left my muesli uneaten and bought a bagel instead.
Now I’m at that awkward time where I know I’ve got homework to do before the Gazette. Bring. It. On. I am going to try to make up for a day of slacking yesterday with uber productivity today! I’ve got bootcamp at 6:35 to teach and I have no idea what to do with the group…it’s weird for me to be clueless as to a plan for butt kicking. HELP!
Here’s the entertainment I promised…it started with Rachel’s sharing “Sh*t Triathletes Say” yesterday.
So funny, and so true! I definitely laughed out loud!
Then I thought about what I’d put in “Sh*t Healthy Living Bloggers Say”…turns out there’s one out there, and it’s pretty funny.
Suggestions for a bootcamp workout?
Do you know how to flip turn in the pool? JEALOUS!
