Mind Over Matter
I’d be lying if I said all is honky dory in ape town. I’ve been so exhausted and yesterday during cardio my HR was REALLY low despite trying to get it higher. It was odd. I did meet a friend at Starbucks and then we went trail walking. That hour flew by. She had more to say than Boomer usually does. Again even during that walk my HR was around 109 and typically it would be 130~145. Just an odd day. This morning I didn’t wear my HR because I didn’t want to get PO’d. I did have a better cardio session.
Over the summer my carb intake was around 150g~200g and I had amazing energy. I was considering never competing again because I loved the way I was eating. All the fruit, PB and other carbs. That for me got old. I needed a challenge again. Right now I still get oatmeal and i’m eating veggies for carbs. I love being this strict…I know it’s not for everyone. I’m feeling better body wise after being on this diet for a week. Now my energy and mind are out the window but who needs that? As long as I look good in a bikini…i kid i kid.
I had to drive all over town to find some green beans. I finally did though. Come on, this is Indiana and there are farms on every street corner.
Here is a picture of my HAWT hubby. When he comes in from a run he always asks if he can give me a hug…um no thanks. Actually I normally say yes out of habit and then when I look i’m like EW!!! Mike is running a marathon Oct 17th. He is hoping to qualify for the Boston and then he wants to run that. It’s on his bucket list along with a Porsche 911 Turbo. The Boston will get crossed off that list 😉
Tonight i’m meeting my friend Louisa at JCPenney’s. I will NOT buy anything. It’s my mission. I leave you with the dog who has the most miserable life in the world. She never gets to go on walks or rides in the car, she has to eat out of the trash and has never been to the vet for the littlest things to make sure she’s okay. Dog toys are not allowed and treats are never bought either.
