Upcoming 5k and Day 1 (yet again)
Monday, March 19, 2018
I've made it through the first day and my nutrition numbers aren't bad. I skipped lunch but then I ate out for dinner, and balanced that all. My fat content is a little high and fiber is a little low. I still have to figure out how I can record all my vitamins I take. I'm sure that'll effect it. I'll comment on this blog post and let you know what changes when I add in the vitamins.
I was having a slow moving day and didnt get more excited about life and being able to move soon (I'm moving from Illinois to Utah in August) then I finally got to feeling well enough to attend my "self reliance & starting my own business" class in the evening to night. So now I'm kinda burnt out and dont want to work out. But today is day one and I want to be able to say I met my health goals today. Plus, I have a challenge on here where I need to complete 5 goals every day for 7 days straight. I can't quit on anything while I'm this early in the game or it'll just prove to me that I'll quit this process for the millionth time soon. I need to be fully devoted this time. Since I'm moving to Utah, I feel like my life was put on pause since 2010 and now I finally hit the "play" button and I need to focus all my energy on studying my esthetics and nail text books before I take the licensing exams for both out there, and also on losing weight and gaining strength in my back so I can work and stand up and much as needed in school or work and not struggle with back pain. I also want to do as many 5k's as I can this season with my BFF, Jenna, before I move. I haven't trained at all for this 5k and it's in just under a week! I had plenty of notice to train and I was the one who even suggested we do this, and I did nothing to train. I've spent the last year completely on bed rest and laying on massage mats 24/7 so how am I going to manage standing for an entire 5k. I know there's no way I can run or jog it, but evening walking it will be a miracle. The very first race I ever did was an 8k and everyone told me I was trying to take on too much and I wouldn't be able to do it. The ONLY ONE who encouraged me before the race and through the race was Jenna! And I did it! There were benches along the way and I never sat down. There were also hills. This upcoming 5k is supposed to be on flat territory (there's like some solar system theme, which I'm excited to see) so hopefully I'll manage. I do NOT want to allow myself to sit down. I'm perfectly fine with walking it and finishing dead last as usual, but I do not want to sit down and take breaks! It's my fault I didn't train and now I have to face the consequences. It sucks and it's going to be painful, but the reward of completing it will be totally worth it!
