Thursday Thoughts…food porn, workouts

Happy Thursday! I love Thursdays, there is only one more day in the week and most people treat Thursday like Friday anyways so there is usually fun things going on. This week has been pretty mellow, just work and working out and trying to kick whatever thing is going on with me. For the last week it seems that every day I feel good in the morning, then in the late afternoon sometime I start feeling like crap. I get a headache and almost get the chills, I feel congested and just really tired. I have tried sleeping extra and not working out but it seems no matter what I do this keeps continuing. Jason has been really sick for the past week so I am convinced that my body is fighting whatever is going on. Bottom line, right now sucks! It is almost Halloween and I feel like dirt. My BFF aka Man of Honor aka Drew has a tendency to get deathly ill for most of the major holidays so maybe he passed the torch to me, and now it is my turn to get sick for the holidays. Either way I want it to stop. I keep looking at food porn on How Sweet It Is and it is not helping. Let me just say I want to devour everything on this blog! Thanks Nicole for introducing me to my latest addiction 😉 If this doesn’t look like food porn I don’t know what does.

I digress.

 

Lets take a look at my workouts this week shall we?

 

Monday- rest from still feeling slightly sick…Gross.

Tuesday- Run that felt like death, I somehow managed to squeak out 4 miles in 50 minutes, how that happened I have no idea!

Then on wednesday I decided to try Bikram again. This time it was a much better success I actually went in there somewhat excited to give it another try and hope for the best.

And I left feeling good and revitalized. I swear I looked exactly the same after the class, you don’t need a post bikram picture 😉

Thursday- Well I woke up at 5:25 before my alarm! I decided to sieze the day and start getting dresses for my run this morning. Well as I was naked in the Kitchen trying to get dressed for running an earthquake hit. I quickly ran to the doorway and then realized if I had to bolt it naked It was meant to be. Thank fully I didn’t have to do that and I went ahead on my run. Besides it being cold and extremely dark I had a great 4.5 mile run! (I just purchased a headlamp to defeat one of those things)

Tonight is my WI and Weight Watchers! I am hoping for the best but I swear I never know what tales from the scale I will learn come WI. Have an awesome day and lets hope I shake this disease Jason gave me.

Do you run at ungodly hours in the dark? What is your favorite food porn website?

Podcast love

Sorry for the delay peeps,  I started feeling a little sick Wednesday night on my run, but I think it made me feel worse and yesterday I was pretty much glued to the couch watching Damages. I missed my WW meeting and my weight lifting class, I was pretty bummed about it but I know that trying to get healthy now is better than letting myself get completely sick and overdoing it.

One thing that is helping me feel slightly better since I have been feeling sick is that I have been falling more and more in love with podcasts. In an effort to not let this blog go too crazy with my fuzzy, sick brain that keeps going back to kitties and pie, I will give you some links to some sweet Podcasts I started liking.

First I have to say that I will always have a place in my heart for Adam Carolla, now I don’t suggest listening every day all the time because it can get a little annoying but every few days he is pretty funny. I do like his new cohost Allison as well, on days she is not there it can be boring so beware.

Another podcast that I have been listening to and loving is Comedy Bang Bang.  The main podcast is awesome, and from that I learned about another few really good ones. Make sure to check out How did this get made, a podcast about horrible movies that are so bad they are good, and The Apple Sisters a variety show that takes place in the 40’s, need I say more?.

 

In other news!

Well it is Friday, I lost 1.3 this week, Score! and I am ready to not feel sick anymore. Have a great weekend!

Weekly Check-in (Friday Thoughts)

This week has honestly been really good. Aside from being extremely emotional from various things going on it was a lot of fun and super productive. There was lots of exercise, and healthy food and some good times with friends.

One highlight that I want to touch on is the Full Moon Run at Inspiration Point in the Berkeley Hills. I think technically it is Orinda but I will always associate it with Berkeley.

First we started the night off with a few photo’s courtesy of my wonderful friend Emily(these photos are at the top), check out her blog. She is going to start training for another Ironman soon so she will be updating soon, but she has some great posts on her last Iron(WO)man that she did in August.

It was a fun night except when we had to turn back because there was a mountain lion on the road! Ahh! We were  a little scared but since I don’t run that fast I didn’t actually see the mountain lion (thank god!)

October Goals Weekly Check in!

I swear, making things pink just makes them better, am I right or am I right? (Don’t answer that 😉 )

Here are what my goals are for October

October Goals!

  • lose 3-4 pounds– Well this week I have a pretty big drop, 4.2 to be exact. So I am going to try to set the goal of losing 2 more pounds by November 3rd. (I am secretly hoping for more)
  • strength train 2 days a week with my running training– So far so good, I have been strength training at least 2 days a week the past 2 weeks, I was thinking of kicking it up a notch to 3 times a week but we will see if I can fit that in.
  • relax and enjoy life even if it means not losing weight that week– This is always a tough one, I have picked up knitting again and reading more so I think that is good ways to relax.
  • cook 1 dinner a week– Last night I made the wraps, and I am making a Meatball Skillet tonight!
  • Don’t worry about what happened yesterday, focus on today– slowly but surely I am making my way towards this.

Running Recap

As you can see from the pictures I did the night run on Wednesday, documented proof I am being a bad-ass this week ;P

Sunday- 5 Miles with the Lovely Katie

Monday- Rest because I just got my tattoo on Sunday

Tuesday- 4 Mile run! I killed this run, seriously! I am not going to put my time up because real runners will think I am lame but I was amazing for me hehe.

Wednesday- Night run about 40 minutes.

Thursday- Weight lifting  class at the gym.

Friday- Rest day because I want to hehe.

Saturday- Crosstraining circuit workout with the beautiful Kim!

I am feeling really good about this week and my schedule. We are also watching an adorable puppy this weekend, and I am going to see the play Little Shop of Horrors. I am super excited! I will try to be good and post about all the fun shinnanigans I have this weekend.

What do you have planned this weekend?

Being real for real

Well I had a pretty big slap in the face last night at my Weight Watchers meetings. I guess I just learned again that half-assing the plan is not going to get me to see weight loss results. I really want to lose this weight so I am commuting to focusing on my weight loss and reminding myself daily that I am doing this for myself not just to get into a super hot wedding dress. I can complain about it being tough and hard but the fact is that I just want to have less junk in the trunk! At this point I just want to be back to my Pre-triathon training weight of 163, it doesn’t seem that hard but 20 pounds is 2o pounds no matter what. It is going to take dedication and perseverance and a lot less beer.  Source

Yes I know Boohoo, So I won’t be able to go out and party like I am 21 again, I guess it is just the truth that I really have to account for myself and really focus on that.

For anyone that might actually be reading this….

Would it be interesting/beneficial for me to do a daily eats on my page to help keep me accountable? Especially when going out on the weekend? What about only doing daily eats on the weekend (my trouble time) …

Next week I am going to come back smaller and weighing less damn it! PS I need to run my ass off because I only have 8 weeks until the Vegas Half Marathon( be jealous)

Ravenous Wednesday!

Today I have been more than hungry. I don’t have any pictures since I lost my camera last week but we will have to just pretend.
7AM- Oatmeal with almond butter and a banana
7:30- Coffee with half and half and honey (yumsies!)
10am- Carrots with Hummus
10:30am- 12 almonds
12:00pm- Leftover Lentil, Kale Sausage skillet from last night.

Now that it is almost 2pm I am finally feeling like my stomach is not a bottomless pit.

In other news it is amazingly gorgeous in the SF bay area right now. I went for a walk on my lunch break and was so warm I wished I had shorts on. In celebration of this amazing weather the fiance and I are going to go out for a dinner date night. I am planning to go for a run right after work shower and then we will hit up one of our local spots with outdoor seating. I was the one who suggesting this outing, but right after I did I was almost regretful. Thinking that maybe it would affect my weight loss this week and I should wait until after my Weigh in at Weight Watchers this Thursday. Then I remembered that I can’t live life like that, and I wont deprive myself for things like that. This is why I am going to run right after work and make sensible decisions. I am in control of my health happiness and well being. Let the sunshine in and the running weather continue! Lets be glorious to ourselves today shall we?
