Encouraging day

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Today at work, I was helping a woman find some work out wear and denim, a pretty common request. We were talking about going down sizes in clothes and not sure when to "buy in" or when you reach a size you can sustain. She has just had a baby and went from a 14 to a 4 (you go girl!!) and needed some new gear.

Anyway we got to talking about how she does yoga and how I am on track to become a distance runner (with practice). I told her that I was hoping to improve some so I could officially go down a size (I can sometimes wear a 12 now, down from a 14sometimes16) and pulled on my now saggy legging jeans.

She told me good luck but that I look great, and she admired me for being a runner. It felt really REALLY good for someone to tell me that I looked good!! I hope she wasn't just being polite, but either way, I'm taking it to heart.

Later on I helped a lady with some yoga pants and told her that though I don't look like a runner, I am dedicated to it. She scoffed and said I look great and not to worry.

It was nice for two customers to be so kind to me today! Though we were very, very slow, the customers I helped were the sweetest and a lot of them were dedicated to fitness.

I am a bit disappointed in my eating today. I had a quick, pretty nutritional breakfast, but decided to indulge a little for dinner. My job allows me to walk basically an entire shift (I try to keep a 2.5 pace while I circle the displays), so I know I burned a lot of calories. I also did some standing ab workouts and crunches on my break. I feel okay with my food choices, but I think I could have done better.

We are expecting a large snow storm, so I went shopping today and got some baked chips and low fat pudding, a long with soy cheese and enough food to sustain me in a healthy way. Tomorrow's plan is to do an hour workout and just have a relaxing day.

    That's always great to hear! How is the running going? It's going to be so tough at first but I promise it will get easy. Are you following a certain plan?
