I haven’t posted much this past week because I’ve been following the blogilates meal plans released this last Sunday. Basically, I haven’t been making any of my own recipes to share with you (sad face). I’m actually quite impressed with the meal plans and honestly it’s so much easier to just have a schedule right in front of you telling you what you’re going to eat than planning it all out yourself. So for now recipe creating has taken a back seat to weight loss AND running! (Oh and did I mention finals are coming up next week?)
Running. I still hate it, but I know I’m improving. I shocked myself by running 4 miles on Tuesday (granted I nearly died). I ran 3.1 miles today (5k) in 36 minutes which is improvement. I think it’s the perfectionist in me but somehow I still think I should do better. I once read on a website far far away that a good 5k time to aim for as a beginner is 30 minutes. And I know most people train for awhile before a 5k and it is only my second week training but I feel like it’s not good enough. I see people’s annoying run posts on Facebook too (who does that?) and of course I’m not that fast. But alas, it’s only my second week, I know. By the way, I’ve got terrible blisters all over my feet and by looking at them you’d think they got mangled by a runaway lawnmower.
Also today, as I was in dire need of running clothes, I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods and Under Armour and spent way too much on clothes that actually fit me. yay! (Also got all of my Christmas shopping done for the whole family- including the in-laws!)
