I only ever run on the spot, just for stuff like the wii fit and sports active. And it seems like a great calorie burner. The only thing is I can't do it for long and I hate doing it in public. But last night when I was walking the dog alone in the scary scary woods I did a lil bit of running. Small bursts. And although it left me puffing like a frickin' steam engine I felt really really good about it. By the time me and the dog made it home we were cream crackered. (knackered) :D
On another positive running note FLG and Mary both want to do the couch to 5k with me. FLG posted about it ages ago and I wanted to try and do it for the charity thing but never stepped up. When FLG feels better (he got an icky cold but not swine flu) we're going to do it. I think its cool that we're doing it as a group because then we can compare the stages and how its working out and stuff. Support is the way forward. Any one else wanna do it? More the merrier.
We went for lunch the other day (instead of dinner) to celebrate my brother passing his driving test (pretty cool 'cause he loves driving he offers to take me places... not soooooooo good for his w.loss plans though) and I did not make the right decisions. Nope. You think that posting about it, talking it over, knowing there are healthier options would solve half the problem. NO. I still ended up going in there with the fuck it mentality. The 'I've been really good all week one ginormous fatty meal won't hurt, I'll work it right off' attitude. That's a sucky attitude right there.
I thought doing the 5k walk in just over an hour would cover my back. Then my period arrived although a shock to the system I had only one day of pain, minor cramps and then nothing. No heavy bleeding as usual. Kinda scary but it means I didn't have the excuse not to work out. And I have worked out. I have walked. I have stepped.
It does not feel like enough. I thought I felt like I had lost this week but alas now I am fearing again. And yes, sadly, today (even after yesterdays attempt to diss the scale) I miss the scale. I miss knowing which way it is going. I hate this uncertainty of wondering and waiting for frickin' Monday to arrive....
But right now I am going to burn those shitty feelings off with a small but energetic run/jog/walk. YEAH. TAKE THAT SHITTY ATTITUDE.
