Day 1 and Day 15

Core workout this morning wasn’t too bad..but definitely pulled something in my calf o think during work 😦 not a good start. I’m a bit exhausted, so will do my 3 mile run after work. Will be good to decompress. It was cool mentioning training at work today, even the customers were getting into it and wishing me luck! So cool 😀

Slippage

Well, yesterday was the first day of not posting…i hope that isn’t indicative of future shenanigans. No real excuse for it…busy with life, angry at life, but c’est la vie.

In any case…the last two days were my weekend so I guess that excuses some slackness. Been eating tons of veggies, and have fallen in love with caramelized onions. It takes a while, but OMG they are delicious! Made a bit of a veg stew with them…heap filling. Guess that makes up for the bag of sugar free lollies I just ate….

Switching gears…you know how you can have some friends that make time fly, for all the good reasons? Well, I’m happy to say that there are quite a few of those at work, so that’s good. And so far they have all been really supportive. Just hope to carry that spirit with me next week as I start to tackle my 12 week training program for the half marathon! :-/

Fatigue…

Exhausted tonight…can barely keep my eyes open at 9. Wondering if its adjusting to the diet or just work…was a long boring day today 😦 some people can really make the time fly, and you end up noticing it so much more when they aren’t around!

Day off…

Taking the opportunity of a day off work to recover…and mentally prepare myself for the work I have to do for a school project and the upcoming work at…work. Hahahaha that takes mental preparation because Sketchy McSketch is back in action, and I’ll need to bring mu A game next week.

Also, chick at work is Vegan. Thoughts on a vegan diet and endurance training?

What’s the opposite of peer pressure?

The problem with working in a supermarket when your on a diet is that you want to eat everything. Which, the food here is fine and healthy and full of veg and low carb options. The problem is when the demo lady asks you to try this cookie concoction thing that she made. Talk about peer pressure… I have problems saying no to people, so, despite every ounce of my being really not wanting to try it…i did. There goes ketosis. I mean, it didn’t ruin my life or anything, but still. It wasn’t as good as youd hope, and was a waste of the day. NOW, I also forgot my lunch today, so I had to buy it. Score for the nice salad, fail for the honey mustard dressing that I didn’t notice 😦 tomorrow will be a better day methinks.

Enlisting the support of others…surreptitiously

I’ve been dropping the d and w and HM bombs at work recently. The who and the what now? The diet and weight loss and Half Marathon bombs. And I’ve also been trying to see who else is dieting or aspiring to some fitness goal. Kind of like AA sponsors, I figure we can help each other out if we feel like we’re slipping off the wagon…and to gently shame us to jump back on. If nothing else…there are a few cute so and so’s who work there….don’t wanna disappoint 😉

Work and Play?

I just started a new job that has me working 9 hour days…in a place where it is still well dark in the mornings and gets dark early. How am I supposed to train? Ugh, I haven’t even started the training schedule and it feels impossible….im so sore and exhausted after work. Hey, get you mind out of the gutter! I work at an awesome supermarket that has a very small back room, so we are constantly restocking shelves. The people are amazing too! Anyway, I digress. I’m sitting here watching “My Strange Addiction” with my legs up after eating a dinner full of power greens, and I can’t even move.

Will this get better if I run after work? Maybe before…? This is where I need to know that people are counting on me to go to this dang run. Come on peer pressure!
