I made it! I completed my NWW last week and fortunately, I didn’t kill anyone. I was on the verge so instead of attempting to drag out the rest period into another week, I went to spin this morning. Everyone gets to live.
Last week had some highs and lows. I was pretty miserable not working out but I did have a great time with a fellow injured runner, Cuban Running Crisis. I made us a lovely meal. Only 50% of it store bought and heated. She brought us a lovely wine. And we discussed life, running, and the universe.
I also got in my cleaning, bought a new book, and took an outdoor yoga class on Saturday. While it wasn’t completely fruitless, I have to admit it was terribly boring to not workout. I mentioned on FB and twitter that people who never workout must be insane, this lady agreed and said they were all probably homicidal maniacs. Heh. I also ate and drank more than I should have based on the fact that I was burning about, oh let’s say, zero calories. I definitely eat when I’m sad or bored so I know that working out actually helps me save calories in addition to burning them.
Thus this week I have to reign it in. No more
bottles glasses of wine and definitely no more cookies or cupcakes. What? I just kept seeing them at the grocery store and they looked so sad. Really, I was helping them out.
Knock on wood, but even after I was a complete maniac in spin class today my leg is feeling fine. It was sore when I started spin but hasn’t been “twinging” after like it was the week before last. I definitely think the week off was a good idea. I’m going to try to keep it easy this week but still get in some quality bike and swim time.
Happy Monday! How were your weekends? Anyone race?
glad the leg is coming back, hopefully it keeps feeling better! And loving the only 50% store bought
i keep watching the mag website to see if any jobs might be popping up 🙂
I need to remember your LOL cats saying.
And we just caught a mouse in our house. With an old fashioned mouse trap. SNAP!
So it can be done?????? A whole week, you are da woman!
I'm glad it was worth it!! Keep up the healing wine consumption 🙂
i feel for you, seriously if i go a week without working out i think i gain 10 pounds. meh. hope the leg is back and good to go!
Cake pops. I can leave you with cake pops.
time to get back at it – at least kicking butt on the swimming and cycling! And keep healing on the run!
Lovely meal indeed, dahling! And yay you made it through your first week…but boo you got another one! Running rules, injuries drool!! 🙂
well i'm like 4 days late now but how's the leg holding up? i hope all is good after the spin class and thanks for letting us live. i appreciate that. 50% homemade meal, that's impressive (as i take raw broccoli out of the store packaging and dip it in pub cheese). the most cooking i do is boiling water for rice.
somehow i've managed to GAIN 5 lbs since my 'return' to running. must be me "justifying" all the extra snacks because "i'm working out". yep, those 30 min run/walks, killer calorie burner.
I don't know where you get all the cute animal pictures, but they always make me smile!
