Thursday Update

That title is so unoriginal, I KNOW.  That's kind of where I'm at right now... Feeling completely unoriginal and honestly a bit uninspired. I think it's the fact that it's Thursday and today was a pretty busy day for me. I'm not complaining; just explaining that I'm feeling a bit drained this afternoon. So much so that I'm not sure if I will do my longer workout (I did a short one this morning). For some reason Thursdays are always rough for me and I'm generally pretty tired by the time the evening rolls around. 

Eating was fairly healthy today.  The choices I made were good (minus one). I ate healthy all day however due to various meetings at work, I did not get lunch.  Luckily it was popcorn day at work so I had some of that for a snack. Lunch ended up being my snack/mini afternoon meal of two clementines and a Greek yogurt.... Shortly after three this afternoon. Lunch at three is a bit too late for me. Also, clementines and yogurt are not satisfying when you have your heart set on leftover spaghetti squash and sauce the previous night's dinner. It's just not the same thing.

They also don't take away the flaky, floaty head feeling. Or so it seems. I'm still feeling like I'm a little "out there," like I did before I ate lunch. I feel pretty tired too... It's normal to feel that way on Thursday but today it's a different kind of tired. I'm not just sleepy-tired, I'm mentally tired. I should clean a little.... Chances are I'll end up relaxing in my comfy clothes instead.... But I will try a little cleaning.

I may just have leftovers for dinner tonight but I was planning on trying a new chicken recipe, provided I can find the recipe. I found it online a while ago and do you think I can remember which site? Nope. I'm sure it was WW, or blog site I follow like Skinny Taste.  I think I may have printed it out but I need to check in my little stack of recipes I've printed out recently. I really hope it's there... Otherwise, it's something I have a recipe for. Or spaghetti squash. 

As I mentioned I got up early this morning, although not early enough. I was going to do TF Fire 55 but by the time I got done letting the dogs out and in, feeding them, and changing, I was running short on time. I did Fire 30 instead, with the intention of doing either Fire 55 or a run this evening. The weather has been yucky so the run would have to be on the treadmill.  Rather than decide this morning I decided to wait and see how I feel this evening. Some days I'm just not in the mood for the treadmill and others it is not as bad. Given the insanity of the day, I'm leaning toward Fire 55 - if I workout again. Tomorrow isn't supposed to be rainy (just windy - blah) so I was thinking of waiting to do my run tomorrow anyway. I have a race on Saturday, but I don't think that it'll make a huge difference... Saturday is a five miler so running four tomorrow morning (okay that is almost laughable because I can't imagine trying to do a treadmill run before six in the morning!)or afternoon shouldn't make much difference.

Speaking of Saturday's race, I'm still trying to figure out what to do... I have a seven mile run scheduled and being that the race is five, I'll be a couple miles short. The point of these longer training runs is to do it all at once. I'm pretty sure that I will not want to run seven more miles Saturday afternoon. I'm thinking of either running two miles in the afternoon, and doing a few miles on Sunday just for a little extra. Or I may just do the five mile race on Saturday and then do my seven miles on Sunday. I haven't decided yet... I guess I'll see what the weekend brings and figure it out then! That's probably the best thing to do anyway.

Well, I suppose I'm going to go look for that recipe and then decide if I want to do another workout or not. If not, I'm going to start prepping dinner and pick up a little. I need to. Tired or not I feel like I should accomplish SOMETHING around here. If not, I may fall asleep on the couch by seven. Then I'll be up super early.... I suppose that would be a good way to accomplish an early morning run!! I'd have lots of time to allow myself to feel awake - and hydrate!

I hope you're all having a good week!!
