So yesterday I tweeted about sort of enjoying DOMS. Silly me. That was day 1 after the workout. 

Not only am I “toilet sore” (thanks to @CharlotteGFE from The Great Fitness Experiment for that phrase), but my posterior chain is sore enough that I woke up every time I rolled over in the night.  Serves me right for forgetting my potassium supplement yesterday. 

Solution? 

Today is long, slow run day. 

Today is also clean the house and do a run through wedding ceremony (and Doctor Who) day. My bestie is getting married at the end of the month and I’m officiating. 🙂 

I’ve put on some weight this summer. I don’t know if it’s noticeable to anyone else, but I can see it (in pictures) and feel it (in the way my pants fit, or don’t, as the case may be). I’ve been focusing on making good food choices (and drinking my 3+ liters of water a day). I weighed myself this morning and the number was honestly 10 lbs lower than what I was expecting to see (I have no concept of weight estimation whatsoever). I’m not at my happy weight but I’m soooo much closer than I thought I was. It’s nice to know I’m doing something right.

rest day

And totally a ‘what not to eat’ day. Today marks the 4th straight day of my sodium binge. I guess I should thank my endocrine system for the early warning, although I’m feeling less than grateful about it.

BUT! New Balance came through for me and my capris showed up! And I heart them so much!! I’ve worn them for hours already. Plus I got the supplies for my tutu and I already finished making it. Tomorrow Hubs is going to pick up a wig for me and I’ll make my wings. He’s no fun and is only wearing a headband with the bouncy antenna. I’ll at least get him to take a picture of my get-up. 😉

DON’T FORGET TO SET YOUR CLOCKS AHEAD ON SATURDAY NIGHT!!!!

Oh, I might possibly be addicted to joining challenges on Nike.

back on track

I wasn’t sure if I’d do my strength training today. I’ve been a little off my game. My eating has been out of sorts lately and today was weight/measurement day. My weight was up, but I knew it would be. I think it’s because I haven’t been eating very balanced dinners the last few days so I’ve been getting hungry between 9 and 10 and so I’ve been (over) eating the not-so-great type of carbs (not to mention wine two nights in a row). I did a better job today & I did my weights so I’m already turning things around. I’m a little burnt out on the ab routine I’ve done recently so tonight I just did a variety of crunches. I’m really looking forward to my run tomorrow. I’m getting a little stressed out at the fact that I’m taking 17 credits next quarter. I’m just not sure how I will balance everything. I know that it will all come together, I’m just stressed about the first couple weeks when we get used to a new routine. I also know stressing out about it doesn’t help anything, hence my desire to go running to clear my mind. Bah. Nonsense reigns here, tonight.

I ordered my capris on Saturday. So far, they are still in transit. Sigh. Serves me right for opting for the free shipping option, right? They are supposed to be here on Friday, but they have sat in Hodgkins, IL since yesterday morning. Although, I suppose I should be grateful that they aren’t coming out on covered wagon. I’ve seen loads of people including lists of things they are grateful for at the end of posts. I think I’ll jump on that bandwagon myself at some point.
