A bit of an improvement over last week but still overall an embarrassing week for me. I'll be honest, I have depression and I have been in a bit of a funk for a few days, for no real reason. I know deep down that working out will make me feel better but I just can't get motivated to do it as much as I should. I had a really bad start to my run on Wednesday. Just a couple blocks from my home I got attacked by a leashed dog whose owner was on the phone and TOTES not paying any kind of attention. When she finally noticed her dog all over me (AFTER the dog bit me, luckily I was wearing my thick jogging pants), she didn't quite seem to know how to control her dog. I (ashamedly) cussed her out a bit and tried to continue but within half a mile I was almost hit by a SUV and tripped (but didn't completely fall) after a toddler ran out from behind me and suddenly stopped in front of me. Sigh, I miss having access to a gym. Anyway, what should have been a 5 mile run was cut short to 2, and I was a little put off with running until Sunday, when I ended up doing a 5 mile hike with some slight jogging.
I did really good with tracking my calories at the beginning of the week but stopped on Thursday, because I attended a wedding and knew I would just go way over anyway. And as a result I was up a pound during my weekend weigh in. Not proud, but having to own up to it on this blog helps motivate me to do better this week.
This week's goal: Workout 6 days, track calories all week, lose two pounds.
