I wrote up a big long post yesterday pissing and moaning, and I decided to self censor and change my headspace. So that’s why posting has been light this week (besides being the busiest week ever). Instead, I’m going to talk about how awesome the last 24 hours has been.
Awesome Weights Workout!
So I just didn’t feel like doing weights last night. At all. When I feel like that I usually just bring out my ball and my weights and do some random strength while watching TV/in between cooking dinner/etc, and usually get a full weight workout. I decided to make it a “theme” night and do every exercise on the ball somehow. I highly recommend it! I got a great and different workout by doing silly things like lying abductors and scissor leg lifts on the ball and flinging my legs over my head almost to an assisted scorpion pose to work my back. It amused Zliten and me and it was over before I knew it.
Awesome Frozy Yogurt!
I pinched dietgirl’s amazing frozen yogurt recipe and tweaked it by somewhere between doubling/tripling the recipe. I used 0% greek yogurt, frozen tropical fruit, two tbsp powdered sugar, and 1 tbsp honey. It was both desert and breakfast today. I’d be disappointed in myself, but it’s totally (almost) healthy. I’m pretty sure the fruit at the bottom stuff of my normal greek yogurt is just about on par with a little sugar and honey, and the rest of it is just stuff I’d normally eat for breakfast. Considering trying the next batch with splenda and going to splurge on Fage or Oikos instead of Greek Gods because it has way less protein.
So I was still miffed about my close encounter with my best mile time ever, and even though it was technically my easy run day, I decided to give it another go. I ran the first mile at 5.5 (about 11 min/mile). I started the second mile at 7.5 instead of 7.0 and worked my way up 0.1 every fifteenth of a mile and it actually worked well until the end where I just went balls out the last 0.2 anyway. I finished with a time of 7:35! Best mile time ever! Wahooo! I wasn’t even completely spent and I ran my cooldown mile around 10 min/mile.
By the way – my second best time was in junior high school, I think I was about 13. I ran only one mile, at 7:50, and was between puking and passing out at the end of it. Next stop – under 7 minutes. I know I can do it. I’m not sure if I’m going to be running a 10 min/mile after it, but I think it’s possible.
Awesome in General!
I’m going to ignore that the scale said 155.2 this morning and that’s my low weight for the week so far. I’m going to ignore that our wedding is 40 some days away and there is still so much to do. I’m going to enjoy my happy day and the wonderful feeling of stress not bothering me one bit, thank you very much.
Rock on with your Fridays, and have a wonderful weekend. What do you have to feel awesome about today? I wanna hear about all the awesome!
