This week has kicked my ass. The first two weeks after the quarter ends are my busiest times at work. That is exponentially so this quarter, because we’re revamping some of our quarterly processes, and I’m now responsible for a lot more stuff, yet still not 100% certain what I’m responsible for and how to do it. Thus, I am WAY behind in my blogging. I owe you a Color Run recap, I have a Fall Bucket List, and I have a product review that will hopefully go up later today. Cross your fingers that work will calm down a bit next week and things will get back to normal around here.
Because I’ve been so busy, I haven’t run at all this week. But I’m OK with it. I did Body Pump on Monday and Tap on Wednesday, so it’s not like I was a sloth all week. And I have run club tomorrow, which will be at least 3 miles, and my 10 mile training run on Sunday.
Starting yesterday, I’m off sugar, bread, pasta, and most processed foods until the end of the month. I’m loosely following the Whole Life Challenge “Lifestyle” diet plan, which I heard about through Kristen at Run Away With Me. But I’m doing things my way: I’m not giving up dairy, and I’m allowing myself one small glass of wine per day, otherwise I might kill someone. Yes, this will be hard. No, this is not a permanent change; I will never permanently give up pasta. HOWEVER, I’ve been on what I’ve been calling the “garbage diet” since before Chess ended. I’ve been eating anything and everything; not enough protein, not enough produce, too much pasta, too much sugar, and too much popcorn drowning in butter and salt. I feel gross. I need a hard-stop reset to get my habits back in order. More fruit and veg. Less processed junk. I’ll be counting on support from my Team Can-Am accountabilibuddies Lisa, Kellie, Kim, and Nicole. Wish me luck!
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
