Made it outside to run yesterday. It was windy and cloudy and in the 50s, and I felt rain drops a few times but the sky never did open up on me. I was glad, because I think being wet in the 50s with a pretty strong wind would have made me fairly uncomfortable. I wore my new long sleeved t-shirt and long pants from Champion I got from Target, and they kept me warm but not too warm. 4 miles in just over 44 minutes.
I even had a good food day and no eating last night, which I haven't managed to accomplish in ages. I stopped eating at 7 p.m., and kept myself busy with getting the kids to bed, doing laundry, having a facial mask, and polishing my nails to try to stop the food frenzy, and it worked. At 9 p.m. I sat down with DH to watch a History Channel program on Teddy Roosevelt (wow, he was a dynamo, I had no idea) and made a cup of Celestial Seasonings Cinnamon Apple Spice hot tea. The tea really helped ease my craving of having something before bed. I'll have to use this little trick more often.
No run today. We have Sophie's teacher conference at 4:30 and I'm just planning a day off from running. I've gotten 11 miles in so far this week and plan on at least 2 more runs, so this is shaping up to be my longest mileage week yet.
I won't get my Precision Nutrition stuff for another 3-5 days, according to the email letting me know it's shipped. Bummer. I was hoping to be able to read through everything this weekend. Oh well, good things come to those who wait, and all that jazz.
***UPDATE*** My Precision Nutrition stuff just arrived! Talk about service. I can't wait to read up on it and let you all know what I think. The funniest thing... a "bonus" item in the package? A pair of fat calipers. I'm a little scared now!
