July 19th Thursday Daily
When in doubt, work it out. This is still a trying process..
For some reason, I was really, really motivated today to get moving. I did a lot of walking this morning, with the dog since I’m dog/house sitting for my Dad. I had a decent day at work, nothing too thrilling.
Went home, let the doggie out and had a quick snack (leftover pasta) so I didn’t eat my face off at the restaurant. After work I met up with my Mimi and we went to Max & Erma’s for dinner. I definitely watched what I got to eat/portions. I ordered a lunch portion of a normal salad. The only semi-bad thing was the chicken (it was fried) and it was totally pathetic. Like a little chicken strip. Anyway, I split some french onion soup, figured that would be better than eating the whole thing myself.
Felt like going for a run afterwards. The weather was perfect too! It was a sign. The sun was hiding, a little overcast, cool breeze.
So off I went, best run and new time mile marker! I was hurting a little bit, so I’m going to have to be weary of that and start to hit up a yoga class again perhaps? Definitely don’t want to re-injure myself again.
Started off the day with walking the pup for 30 minutes. Supposedly it kick starts your metabolism, etc. Last night’s run was a little rougher than I thought it was going to be. I think it was a bit hillier than what I usually run, but the ‘terrain’ is going to be different wherever you go, so I can’t complain. I didn’t stop at all which I was impressed with and proud of. I accomplished another milestone in my summer and all-time running with having gone for 54 minutes! Then took out the pup for a cool down/walk. My legs felt shot afterwards. Used Map My Run for the info below!

Grabbed a snack before the restaurant so I wouldn’t over eat. Pasta with some broccoli and mushrooms. Lunch portion of a salad from Max & Erma’s; hard boiled egg, tomatoes, chicken, light ranch, and mixed greens/lettuce and a breadstick. Shared some french onion soup too.
