I don’t think I have made an update about what I have been doing since the New Year began.
My plan was to start a 21-day whole food detox/cleanse but that hasn’t happened so far. I would start my day on plan but something at midday or evening would happen and I would go completely off plan. The main reason for this is because I haven’t planned and shopped for what I would need. Planning is essential.
The other thing I started but fell off track was the 30-day shred. I got to day 8 and even did level 2 & 3 but then the holiday and guests and travel came along and I just couldn’t sustain it. So I am starting over. It’s like the 8 days never happened. 2 days down and 9 to go for level one.
My pre-training marathon training is on track. So far I have been doing 5K every morning. No walking just running all the way trough. I have been taking it slow about 39 minutes for the run but I intend to pick it up a bit and get back to my 29 min/5k or less.
I need to start making mini weekly goals that have nothing to do with number losses. Just habits that I need to maintain if I am going to get my 3:45 marathon.
For this week
– Drink 100 oz of water daily
– Run 30-35 miles this week (one run has to be a 10k)
– Keep carbs at 100g
– 30-day shred daily
My name is Linda and I am addicted to chocolate. I have a chocolate problem and I have tried to kick it but it won’t go away.
I think I have stayed away from the drug for a month or two but today I completely gave in. Cadbury’s is especially hard for me to resist. Its like I always have to battle with my self at the check out counter at the supermarket and quite honestly it’s exhausting.
Today I went ahead and got some. The excuses I’m making for myself is that at least its dark and 80% cocoa. I got a 90g bar and told myself I would be good and only eat 15g which is about 3 small squares a day. But let’s be honest. There is no way that bar would last 6 days in my house. As of this evening I have already had 6 sqs, which is actually a victory for me. I know I shouldn’t bring these things into my house and obviously haven’t learned my lesson. Or maybe it can be once a month treat.
Here’s to hopping tomorrow will be a better day.
