Hey! How’s that running thing goin’ fer ya?
Not so well at the moment. I will be going tomorrow morning. In fact, I will be heading to the animal shelter to pick up a running buddy for my 30 min jog. I’m looking forward to that. I have completed Week 1 of C25K (again) and will be starting in on Week 2 tomorrow. On Friday, I think I will do a BodyPump class. It’s been a while, so I will most likely be unable to move for the rest of the weekend hehe. Too bad for my body that I will be forcing myself to get out and run on Saturday as a way of celebrating Day 1 of the Get Off Your Broom Fitness Challenge.
I was trying to prepare myself for the fitness challenge this week by getting back into the habit of eating healthier. I failed last night with ice cream and today with a candy bar. Ugh. However, I did discover that ice cream, while it is one of my weaknesses, really makes me feel like crap afterwards. I don’t mean that as in I am berating myself for losing willpower. I mean I really feel yucky. I get headaches, lose energy, and start to feel sluggish. So, I have told my family to not buy me anymore ice cream. I can control myself if the ice cream belongs to someone else, but once I am told that a pint (or 2) was purchased just for me… forget willpower.
The reactions to ice cream actually really bother me. If I could find my blood sugar testing kit, I would start testing myself regularly again. I am starting to suspect that I am type 2.
Oh! I have found my vegetarian cookbook! I can now finish posting the recipes I had made from it. I will also start making and posting recipes from another cookbook, Madhur Jaffrey’s World-of-the-East Vegetarian Cooking as soon as my oven is fixed. Or replaced. Whatever. The landlady needs to get on that. I keep having to remember that I can’t just pop things in the oven. It’s frustrating. Today was supposed to have been a bread baking day… Oh well. Patience is a virtue. Or so they say.
