I am officially declaring December to be crappy food eating month! #crappyfoodmonth
Last night, at CVS, I discovered the little item in the picture. F. Were they made for me? I am having a little difficulty with self control lately. During the day, I eat well. Veggies, good carbs, proteins, etc. At night, not so much. My goal is to survive December without becoming a diabetic. January will be the month I get it together. No, no, no, not a resolution thing. My wife and I like to use January as a clean month and the start of eating healthy. This is simply because it's such a miserable month of post holiday blues, bad weather, and early darkness, why not add eating healthy to it too!
In order to combat last night's caloric explosion, I decided to do two workouts today. Earlier, I banged out 20 minute on the painmaker, the step machine. It hurts after a minute, so why not do 20? Then, after an hour or so, I did an indoor run of 5 miles in just under 40 minutes. I couldn't go out today. I ran outside 4 times this week, and it's 21 degrees out again. I needed to be warm, sweat, and relax.
I look forward to a weekend of resting the body for the most part. I am trying to put together next weeks plan. It is going to be something like this:
Monday 10 mile long run
Tuesday 5-6 mile recovery
Wednesday 6 mile tempo run
Thursday 5-6 mile recovery
Friday 5 miler w/strides
