I do hold myself to high expectations, but it's just because I know I can do it, and there need to be no excuses, but at the same time I need to enjoy my life and realize that pigging out at the Superbowl is just a part of life.
So anyway, I'm still feeling sick, maybe even worse, but I didn't want it to drag me down even more... so today I did a 3 mile run on the treadmill! I had such a stressful/busy day at work, so it was nice to get on the treadmill, blast the music and RUN!
I've started incorporating HIIT into my runs (high intensity interval training). I run at a base speed of 6mph for 20 minutes, then the last 10, I do 1 min at 7mph, then 2 at 5.5 mph, and so on. It feels so good to run that fast, and let me tell you going from 6mph to 7mph is a huge difference! It makes me realize that I'm not a 7mph runner... ever...haha. Running my 10 minute miles is just fine :)
So anyway, I know the scale won't be pretty this Friday, but as long as I stay on target the rest of the week, I'll be ok.
I'm not going to shred tonight because I'm pretty exhausted, but I did run, so I'm not going to feel too bad about not shredding.
Sometimes I think the emotional toll is the hardest part. I can put in the exercise, I can try to eat less... but in my mind it's still never enough!
Oh well, here are a few photos from the superbowl (those are the 3D glasses for the sobe commercial!), I really did have a fun night vegging out...and of the stupid snow that has taken over Indiana.... and got me sick :(
