Today is a good day for being on a diet. Why? Because I did really well today, and I didn't even realize it until now. I just calculated my calories for the day thinking that I probably was really near my limit and was pleasantly surprised to find that I'm still a couple hundred calories under my limit for the day. This is awesome considering I have such a hard time staying in my limits without tracking.
I've been running into something I haven't really experienced before. When I eat something that is blatantly bad for me, I get horrible stomach cramps and pain. Sunday night I decided to have a quesadilla for dinner because I was stuck at work instead of out celebrating with my dragon boat team. Paul had to bring me pepto bismol because my stomach hurt so badly. Today I had a bubble tea - which isn't really all that terrible but not great either - and I had to stop drinking it because my stomach was getting upset. Has anyone else experienced this?
I had to check on the couch to 5k website to remind myself how often to train. 3 days a week is the suggested amount. My legs are rather sore today and I really didn't want to run. The good news is I don't have to until tomorrow! It suggests that you have a day between runs to let your body recover. So, tomorrow is the second round of day 2 week 2, and friday will be day 1 week 3. Wish me luck!
