Three Things Thursday

  1. I have been eating like crap lately. Not so much that I’ve been eating bad food, but for the first time in my life, I find myself regularly forgetting to eat. It’s 10:30, and I had a soy latte for breakfast. (I hate soy lattes, by the way – I want whole milk! BUT – I am trying to be true to the non-dairy lifestyle, with the exception of last weekend, when I was a very bad dairy-eating monkey indeed.) However, I am not losing weight. I’m not gaining weight, but this suggests to me that it’s not as simple as calories in vs. calories out.
  2. I have also been exercising like crap lately. Last week – the week in which I was on vacation and had no work to do at all – I did not exercise once. I went for a run on 3/20/11, and then didn’t exercise again until 3/28/11. This is not the way to ramp up for a half marathon in 5 weeks. I did run on Monday & yoga on Tuesday, but skipped the planned Tuesday evening bike, Wednesday morning swim & Wednesday evening weights. Today is supposed to be my rest day, but I think I might have to eschew resting for some kind of activity. I don’t know why I’m having such a hard time getting back into my pre-foot injury routine. Maybe (and this JUST NOW OCCURRED TO ME) it’s because I haven’t had a regular routine for a year? It really has been a year since this whole foot thing started. And maybe it’s because I still have some foot pain & swelling? And maybe I’m just kind of an idiot & should stop reprimanding myself & making over-ambitious plans, and just try to sneak back into it gradually?
  3. I feel so beige lately. I drive a beige car & live in a beige house & kind of feel (after spending 20 minutes last night explaining to the architect how I develop budgets at work as a lead in to a dramatic work story) that my job is beige. Maybe I should just move to the suburbs & buy a station wagon & go gently into that good night.  Or, maybe, I should just spend some time eating right & exercising & getting some sun & I’ll feel all better.
