BLAH, I’ve got a food hangover this morning. There are three tell-tale signs that I over did it last night.
1. I woke up feeling less than stellar
2. I was not at all interested in breakfast when I woke up
3. I did not care to know what the scale had to say this morning
I know that I felt free as a bird to eat whatever I wanted and more than I usually would because I ran 9 miles yesterday. It’s like my long run was my ticket to over indulging. Is that really the reason I run long? So I can eat whatever I want? NO it is NOT. I wasn’t overly hungry last night, I just felt like I had permission to eat whatever and as much as I wanted because I ran so far yesterday. That cake came home with us last night and I did NOT need another piece before bed. What the hell was I thinking?
Well, I’m paying for it this morning. Lesson learned. A lesson I thought I’d already learned but I guess I was due for a refresher course. Finding a balance with exercise, eating, maintaining my weight (and ideally – losing these last 10) is work in progress and oh yes, I am still in progress – that’s all I can say. Onward and upward. Today is a new day.
Juice was most definitely on the agenda for this morning when I finally felt ready for something.
Come on romaine, do your green thing.
That head of lettuce was accompanied into the juicer by two carrots, two apples, two lemons, ginger and a giant cucumber. Juice for two.
Hoping my glass of green goodness detoxes too much ultimate white cake from every cell in my body. Well, every cell except my brain cells so I don’t forget about how I’m feeling this morning.
Maybe that glass can help me find a hair brush or something too.
We’ve got a beautiful day in store for us here today. I’ve got plans to meet up with a friend for a little trail run early this afternoon. Green juice and fresh air make everything better.
