Moving On

But not really….I don’t really know how to follow up yesterday’s post. This issue isn’t over, and won’t be over for a long time. And I really can’t and won’t let it go. I’m not sure where to go from here, but I will figure it out. It seems that going back to talking about my diet (which I mean in a “the food I eat each day” way & not “the calorie restrictions I undertake to try to lose weight” way) & exercise is wrong, somehow. But – I don’t know what else to talk about today, so here goes:

I have been having an erratic week, diet & exercise-wise. I started out strong – 5 mile run on Sunday, Bikram on Monday, I even managed to workout before tuning into election results Tuesday.

But it went downhill from there – what with the pizza and the bottle of wine. (Seriously – only one bottle of wine? I’m really slipping. I’m pretty sure I consumed WAAAAY more wine in 2004. The combination of age & happiness apparently leads to moderation.)

I’ve been munching on leftover Halloween candy, and cookies, and crap for the past two days. I didn’t exercise at all yesterday, and I didn’t get up for weights this morning. The time change is kicking my ass. It’s dark by the time I’m leaving work, and I am so tired by the end of the day.

Tomorrow I’m going to get up & run in the morning. Sunday I’ve already committed to a 5 mile run, rain or shine (please not rain).

Saturday, I’m thinking about yoga – but may end up doing something else. I will, however, do something else.

I have a plan for next week, and although I’ve shared it with friends already, I’m going to share it with everyone – more accountability, right?

Monday: Bikram
Tuesday: Track workout after work
Wednesday: Morning exercise DVD
Thursday: Crazy weights (I mean it this time!)
Friday: Pre-work run
Saturday: TBD – (options: DVD, yoga, elliptical)
Sunday: 6 mile long run

So there. committed. 

What’s your plan?
