I'm a planner. I enjoy planning my week from meals to miles run. And this week is a little bit lighter in the miles department. I need the lightening in the meals department to follow. Truth be told, I have been more unhealthy than usual and maybe getting over the junk food hump will start tomorrow. (Def doesn't help that Valentine's Day is on the horizon!)
There are a few things that I try to work with in order to get over the "this week is really long and my jeans are kinda tight" blues.
- Plan my runs and stick to the plan. This week I plan to run Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday. I know that I my body (knees) can only handle 3-4 runs a week so I'm sticking to a schedule so I can run Broad Street in May. More on the training plan to come.
- Plan my meals and stick to them. I plan my meals every morning. I'm a big lunch packer and so I can control my budget and calories eaten. That doesn't mean I'd quickly toss my sammie for a delicious cup of creamy (calorie laden soup)
