Ran outside on the surface of the sun -
hot and hilly
Walked the dog in the early am – 2 miles
Attention, people, I have an announcement to make: cannonball I went running at 1pm today. It was ridiculously hot and sinful and vile, but I’m sorta proud of myself for going instead of bagging it.
I’m a total morning exerciser and the past 2 days I’ve run later in the day which half sucks and half is awesome that at least I ran. I think I say a lot on here but here it is again, Do what you can on the day that you have.
Not every day is going to be easy or a “good” eating day or un-stressful, but try to make the best choices that you can today. and then let it be. Let go of the “I should be perfect and I’m not” guilt!
Moving on from that cheerful note, here’s another self-indulgent self-portrait from last night:
I haven’t washed my hair since Sunday and it is starting to multiply. In fact, I saw a bat fly out of it this morning.
All morning I worked on writing some posts for while I’m in Alaska so if I’m short on time (like actually doing work and fishing) I can throw one up asap. I’ve got one all about salads and salad dressings, some exciting news, some new races news, but is there any specific topic you’d like to read about?
Katrina emailed me with a question about candy. She’s increasing her mileage while training for a half marathon (awesome), but finding it harder to avoid eating too much candy and sweets.
She asked for any healthy eating tips or tricks so I’d like to ask you guys,
How do you avoid eating too much sweets/cookies/fill in the blank?
Do you have a healthy substitute, do you practice portion control, have a “freebie” day or just go plain buck wild whenever you want?
Most of the time I try not to keep my favorite candy in the house because if it’s there, I will eat it. If it’s not there, chances are I’m not going to put in the effort to drive to a grocery store to buy it.
For me I find it easier to just not have it around, but then again, when I do get my hands on some cinnamon bears, it’s GAME ON.
So I guess I have no good advice, sorry.
