This morning I woke up hesitant to do my long run. I wasn’t really “feeling it” and decided to talk myself up with iced coffee…
Chandra, called me out so I was about to get out the door!
Then, I noticed that Vegas was still acting kind of weird. He seemed a little depressed after his fight from the other night. He had a scratch on his head, but other than that seemed fine. But since he was still acting “out of it” today I decided to take him to the vet.
They said they could take him in an hour, so I postponed my run. Long story short, the cut on his head seems fine, but we have to make sure he’s peeing like normal since he has a history of UTIs.
By the time I got home it was 11am! I ate some melon and made the executive decision to change my long run to tomorrow. I’m a morning runner and knew the circumstances weren’t going to make a successful long run.
But I still wanted to run a little bit today. I mean, I was already all dressed to run since this morning! So, I did 6 easy miles and an extra mile walk at the end when I saw Ben about to leave for his walk/run.
When I got home I was super hungry. It was weird, but my arms felt weak as I was cooking and it was hard for me to open jars and stuff. I kind of felt uncoordinated too? Has that ever happened to you??
I made French Toast and topped it with PB and sf syrup. Amazing!
I also stole some of Ben’s chips. By the time I was eating it was 12:30pm and he was having lunch!
I’ve went back to reading all the Geneen Roth books I own. Now I’m on When Food Is Love. This doesn’t “speak” to me as much as the “When You Eat at the Refrigerator, Pull Up a Chair”, but I like it. I think one of the big things with Intuitive Eating is being “all in”. You really have to throw yourself 100% into eating what your body is telling you – especially at first since you’re re-establishing your hunger and fullness signals. Recent events have made me feel like I am “all in” and I like it. I think it won’t make for the prettiest pictures or normal meals for the blog, but I’m just going to do my thing and go with it.
I have a Kick-Off Party for the new running group I’m going to be coaching tonight! (It’s a fun beginner 10K group in the OC, so let me know if you want more information.) Wish me luck!!!
