Well here it is Tuesday...yes Tuesday and I am just sitting down to try and figure out what I want to do this week in terms of exercise. To be honest, I really don't want to do anything! I think I am at that point where I have lost weight, but feel bigger (fatter) than before, have nothing to look forward to because I don't have any new running goals set, and it seems that I can't shove enough junk food in my face quick or long enough. So, with all that now out on the table, I still have no clue what I am going to do, but I do know I need to do something to help get me out of this rut!
Sunday: Day off
Monday: Severe weather in our area! We found out that those pesky tornado sirens can wake us up in the middle of the night because they went off at 1:10am. I slept on and off in 30-minute increments until it was time to get Bre ready for school and then was notified at 9:30 that schools were being dismissed early due to flooding. Thankfully the rain would stop long enough to let our flooding subside a bit before the next batch hit us, otherwise we would have had water coming into several of our windows on the backside of our house. Due to the severity of the weather, and Bre now arriving home early from school, and the lack of sleep I sat around all day long...yep didn't even get to my typical Monday chores other than vacuuming the tile (that covers the majority of our house).
Tuesday: Everyone expected that schools would be canceled today as we were to get another 6 inches of rain last night (by 4pm yesterday we had 8.5 inches), but thankfully we didn't get too much rain and schools (at least our county) were in full session, hurray!!! But now I have no excuse to not get busy and active...so, I did my ab workout, tried a standing ab workout, and decided that it would be in my best interest to use some training program that I could access on my phone, SOOOOO until I find something new, I decided to restart 10K training starting at week 9. Today's workout (aka 2 episodes of Big Bang Theory) resulted in 4.87 miles in 53 minutes.
Wednesday: ab workout (oy this is getting tough!) In order to procrastinate on some of my household chores, I decided to run a quick 3 miles, I included a 5 minute warm-up (.33 miles) and 5 minute cool-down (also .33 miles). Total for today 3.66 miles in 40 minutes.
Thursday: I forgot to mention that while I am redoing parts of the 10K training I have decided to increase my incline on the treadmill and I have to say it is kicking my butt. Either changing my incline from 0.5 to 1.0-1.5 is that much of a difference OR I am more out of shape that I think I am. Regardless, today's run resulted in 4.86 miles in 53 minutes.
Friday: It's my birthday and I don't have to do anything...except make myself some apple crisp for breakfast, clog the sink, take 3 hours to unclog it (with breaks here and there), get a call from the hubs to go out to lunch at (get this) 11:30 as I am covered in sink goo...yea I think I will pass. 12:30 I am still working on the sink, thinking about giving up and going for a run even though I had no intention of running cause it's my birthday present to myself (you didn't think I'd get one from anyone else did you???), hubby comes home, starts to change his clothes...um I'm confused....oh "by the way" he tells me as he is making himself lunch, "I took the rest of the day off cause it's your birthday" UGH, guess I could have taken a shower and met him for lunch. Sooooo for my birthday, after he eats lunch, he takes a nap in the recliner, then plays video games for the rest of the day AND night! Happy Birthday to me! (Is this day over yet?) It gets worse, but it's so not worth writing about...it's over, it's just another day, just wished it could have been more of a 'routine' day. Yea I should have ran...maybe more than once!
Saturday: We were supposed to be going out of town today, but due to the weather, extra costs of Bre and I going (hotel, food, entertainment), and yes lack of communication...I decided Bre and I would stay home while Eric went to go watch the kids play baseball and softball...Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. My frustration, which should have been taken out on the treadmill, was in turn, taken out by being lazy and staying in comfy clothes (and mostly in bed) ALL DAY! I ate junk, while I fed Bre more nutritious meals along with a few 'not so healthy fun treats'. We watched cartoons, movies, listened to music, and had lots of snuggle time (which is the best, especially coming from an 18 year old...yep just one of the benefits of having a disabled child). Hopefully next week is a bit more productive!
