Monday: Sadness in Ounces

5 years ago

INSPIRATIONAL PHOTO OF THE DAYSomething I need to remind myself about daily.My plan for this week goes as follows:

Mon: Run x 2 / Tues: Bike and Crossfit / Wed: Run x 2 / Thurs: Bike and Crossfit / Fri: Run

I might take Sat AND Sun off.  So Monday was my first run(s) since before the holiday.  I was out BEFORE the sun came up and I have to say it was a bit freaky.  And DARK.  Being on the canal in the dark was odd.  But I will do it again.  Oh, and I saw my Owl again!  I assume it is the same owl but who really knows.  He (she) was so gorgeous, just sitting on a power line along the canal.  That alone was worth the early run.

Run: 5 miles / 55:55

Run: 4 miles / 45:50

I also started tracking my food again today.  It is harder, compensating for the double runs without going too far.  But something is off if I am doing all of this exercise and can't seem to shed a few lbs.  And the fastest way to figure out where I am going wrong is to track everything.

In that spirit, I even measured out my wine for dinner.  And this is what 5 ounces looks like.  It made me very sad to see.  As J pointed out, I need a smaller glass to make the portion look bigger.  Just like smaller jeans make my ass look bigger.
