Tracking successful once again! Yesterday morning I woke up FULL. No way I could have eaten breakfast before work. So I brought it with me to work and waited to feel hunger. It was after 10:00 before I even felt an inkling of hunger, and really I probably could have waited an hour or so longer. This led to a late lunch and then a bit of a time crunch to eat something before I exercised in the evening. I knew if I tried to exercise without eating I'd get super hungry, but yet I didn't want to eat much or I'd feel gross. Ended up having my latest favourite dinner (corn on the cob with a grilled zucchini - YUM!). After I exercised I did have some cravings. I wasn't really hungry, more I just felt like eating and I really wanted toast with peanut butter. I had room for it, but after I ate it I felt kind of full and realized I really didn't "need" it.
As I was getting ready to go, both kids asked for rides in two different directions, then my husband came home and said his truck was almost out of fuel and he had to go to an appt which it was just more logical for him to drive the Jetta to. Yes, I could have gone and said to heck with everyone ... but honestly it was stupid humid out last night and I was seriously questioning my ability to get in a decent run. Plus my hips were feeling pretty tight (I'm figuring it's my IT Band that's tightening up so I'm doing specific stretches for that).
In the end I drove my daughter to her friends, gave the car to my husband, and asked my son if he wanted to bike ride to go get what he wanted. It wasn't a great night for running, but it was awesome for biking! We rode to town and back (26 Km/16 miles) and afterwards I think my hips actually felt better. So even though I skipped my planned run, I still think I got in a pretty good workout. Plus, I'm thinking that I should be doing more biking as cross-training.
