While I did do fairly well eating and exercise wise this weekend, I did not meet my standards. So I am joining Dawne in her "Pull a Hard 10". Essentially, I am gonna go back to food snobbery, only to an extreme, and though I have been rock solid in my running lately, I have not been weight training. I am going to go ten days straight with adding weight training on the days I run too. Not necessarily a hard core holy crap weight training session, but hit two exercises, three sets, ten reps a day. I also think I am going to just skip my after supper snack altogether, even the healthy snacks I used to always consume. That seems to be a trap for me, so I am going to change that habit. So I am sure I am Dawne won't mind if anybody else wants to jump in on this. Let me know if you plan on doing it and I will try extra hard to keep up with your blog the next 10 days and encourage you!
I totally forgot to get a picture of my Texas Heavenly Hills this weekend! I had one hell of a run Saturday morning and it is getting kinda scary that my legs know when I have gone a mile and a half and need to turn around and head back! I nailed the distance without ever driving it first. I think the thing I took out of that run is the fact that I am so much stronger now than I used to be. Those hills are some serious bad ass hills and I never once faltered jogging them. I won't lie and say I didn't get tired, especially my abs, but I never broke stride and never once walked or even half jogged the whole time. I kept stride and I powered through it. Now that being said, I am paying for it now!
I have also got the outside running bug now. It is 45 degrees this morning but I can't stand the idea of getting on the treadmill this morning, so I am bundling up and heading out this morning to get my 2.5 miles around the block. And like I said, I am then going to hit the weights for a weight workout too. I think biceps need some working today... yeah now that I can see them, I need to make them look a little bigger.... haha. Ya'll have a great day, and keep me in your thoughts as I keep on trying to get back on good track. thanks for your support!
