There's nothing like LIFE to get in the way of your best laid plans, is there.
Yesterday we ended up having a client come in right before 5 p.m., and since it was new business & paperwork was involved, I needed to be here. That's all good--we always need new business. But it screwed with my weight lifting class plans at 5:30.
I did not let it derail me, though. I still made it to the gym and ran 3 miles, then joined a pilates class for the last 40 minutes of class. I haven't done pilates at the gym in, oh, I just can't even remember the last time. Pilates is hard! I'd forgotten how tough it could be. I think I need to take that class more often, to shake things up around here.
Speaking of shaking things up, I am pretty sure I'm going to do a (yet another) new diet plan. I read about a book called Crack the Fat-Loss Code over on Jojo's blog, and decided I needed to try something (yet again) to get this weight loss gig jump-started. I haven't read through the book yet--other than the week one info, which is a carb deplete cycle--and I may or may not be starting it this weekend. We'll see.
I work best and get results when I (a) have a written, fairly simple diet plan and (b) have people that I'm accountable to. It's how I lost weight on LA Weight Loss. So, if I get through this book and it looks reasonable, doable, and not too complicated (the Precision Nutrition book I bought late last year was unbelievably complicated and had way too many vegetables at every freaking meal, and I just couldn't hack it), then I'll be yacking away about that soon.
Tonight--4 miles. Tomorrow--9 miles. It's still in the 90s here (dammit), so I'm kicking around the idea of getting up tomorrow morning at 4:45 a.m. so I can run my 9er outside instead of on the treadmill and track at the gym. It takes A LOT to get me up that early. And I'm not sure my slowly-building-loathing of indoor runs has reached the tipping point yet. I can likely stomach the monotony of the indoor run more than I can an early morning. How I wish I'd gotten the morning person gene.
Edited later to add: DOH! I totally forgot to update y'all on the night eating thing. Day 2, no junk at night. I didn't eat dinner until after the kids were in bed, but it was 1 egg, a big bunch of broccoli, and a 100 cal English muffin. Then a mug of hot chocolate w/ 1% milk & 50 cal hot chocolate mix. And that was it.
