I am such an advocate for moderation. Which is hilarious because I can't seem to moderate my habits long term. For instance, I can be the apex of health one week and the next give myself a coronary eating burgers and beer. Right now, I happen to be on the up swing. Self control is at a maximum, I am killing my work outs, getting sleep and the list goes on...
The thing is, I can't help but wonder how long this will last? Sad that I know my motivation has an expiration date. It only takes one night out, or one party or heck one bad hair day to send me off into a tail spin.It just so happens that right now I am so dissatisfied with myself that I am kicking booties and forgetting names.
Because, I am a broke student the current focus is exercise because I don't have the means to buy the optimal foods. So my diet is kinda whacky right now, as I am literally just eating whatever I can get my hands on. Going without so you can pay for school is cool guys, you wish you could do it. Don't worry though, I at least have coffee and colleagues that care enough to feed me when I am look depleted and on the verge of syncope.
You know it's hot outside when your hair is dry in 5 minutes after you start running.
Like I mentioned yesterday, not having a specific training goal is feeling reallll nice for me mentally.
It makes my WANT to exercise, and I have lost that feeling of HAVING to do it.
So today, I swam some laps at the pool...ouch...and then ran four miles....ouch...it was hot. And windy? How horrible. It was over 90 degrees with a super heavy head wind, so it kept me cool but it was difficult to run into.
Goliath also got in a swim
Water, is absolutely essential for these hot summer runs. G and Me both would die without frequently indulging in some agua.
What I ate today: Giant coffee, chicken and broccoli, 2 slices of pizza (I AM SO POOR! I miss vegetables! Waaahhh)
How I worked out today: 20 minute lap swim, 4 mile run
