I need to do some stretching and walking today. I slept horribly,I think because of one of my supplements and my thyroid dosing schedule was off due to my blood draw. I woke at 3 but did manage to get back to sleep eventually, I'm not feeling all that peppy as of this moment. The weather is supposed to be nice so I'm hoping that is a good motivator.
Yesterday was cold and damp or raining all day. During a break in the rain, my neighbor called and asked if I'd like to come with her to walk her dog, so though I had planned to just go to the gym, I thought why not?
As I approached her and her dog, the dog lunged forward and bit me! It didn't tear my pants, but there is a sizable bruise and broken skin. It hurt! It was rather shocking. He's had problems with dogs before but not people. And I know this guy. I'm in their house nearly every day and he runs to greet me and be petted. It was weird and upsetting for both of us.
So eventually, after some dark chocolate therapy, I got to the gym for a strength-training session.
I had a hard time getting to sleep though, so didn't get enough sleep. I was thinking about what happened. I have been super tired today, so I'm hoping to just get in my 10,000 steps. I'm not going to do anything else.
Man, that really, really sucks. Sounds like you need a mental health day, hopefully, it is a nice easy one at work.
That's why I think *my* body is weird. I don't have cravings after eating sugar, it signals that I am full. And I also lost weight when I ate more than reasonable amount of cookies, I think due to decreased appetite. Actually, when I cut sugar a few years ago I felt hungry all the time, and since I usually follow my body, I gained weight. I think our bodies have a way of telling us what we really need, we just lost the ability to decipher those signals.
Anyway, while my sugar, according to MyFitnessPal is usually higher than it thinks it should be, most of it comes from lactose and fruit, so I am fine with that. And cutting all added sugar to save less than 100 Cal and be hungry all day is just not worth it to me.
I may skip fencing today, since it is DS's birthday and I want us to have some family time. I'll try to fit my full body workout sometime today.
Hey, whatever works for you! Way back when I did a very low carb diet, like keto diet and felt great.These days my carbs are way lower than the average person but more in the moderate level, I don't feel good eating that low anymore and at this point in time I've been eating more frequently.
Rest day yesterday, but I met my step goal by walking around in the house. Rain hill sprints on the treadmill this morning which was wonderful and hard at the same time. On the other hand, it’s the fastest 50 minutes has gone by on the treadmill ever.
How do you do hill sprints on a treadmill? I've only started using one again as a warm up but it never occured to me to do hill sprints. Does the treadmill have a setting or do you just set for an incline. I'm just thinking of our hills here that have a steady rise and how to emulate that while running.
Two steps forward, one step back: TTOM started today, just 19 days after my last one. Ahhh, the joys of being in my late 40’s. I have always been unpredictable, but never this short of a time frame. I’m curling up with my heating pad and Netflix - I’ll exercise tomorrow.
Ugh, that sucks! I'm in my late 30s and have had some wonkiness, I'm really thinking this whole thing isn't fair, first child birth, then years of fluctuations with hormone changes, weight gain, and everything else. I decided that taking the first day of my period as a holiday is perfectly acceptable. Hopefully, tomorrow is better.
