Three Things Thursday
1) I have the taper doldrums. Not the crazies, since I am not tapering for a marathon...but with my 10k plan suddenly easing up - my motivation is gone. I'm not worrying about it too much. I really want to feel good for my big goal race on the 26th...so extra time to rest and heal isn't a bad thing I suppose. Especially since I am still super exhausted from the anemia.
2) My brain appears to be impaired. I have caught myself falling into sugary eating patterns twice this week. Once, it was when I decided to get a muffin instead of my usual eggs and toast in the cafeteria...and it wasn't until I ate the top of it that I realized "Crap - I don't eat this shit anymore" and then this morning, I pulled out my travel mug to make my tea and almost decided to have coffee instead but realized I'd need sugar in it. My sugar wean has been fairly pain-free. I haven't really had to think alot about it - I just read labels and avoid it. I was caught really off guard by how easy it would be to slip back into my old ways.
3) I think I finally decided what my next step is going to be. I think I am going to do Whole 30 and 10 Minute Trainer as a one month challenge to myself. I need to clean up my diet and I really need some strength training. I think it will be a good kickstart to summer. So - starting Monday? Guess I'd better get prepping!
