I hit up the local track and did a few laps, then sets of stairs and repeated that off and on for an hour and a half, only actually getting about 45 minutes of running in there. Never did fall into a rhythym. Had to force it all. But I was out there, it was BLOODY cold so it just made sense to keep moving.
My legs felt like LEAD and I never really did warm-up much. I couldn't seem to run fast enough to get the blood flowing properly. It was just below the freezing mark, but not by much. We'll just call this one character building and move on.
Last year (Feb 19th) I found this little beauty in my garden as a sign of spring to come.
Hmmm, right now everything is frozen. Any chance one of these babies will pop up in the next 9 days???? Definitely wishful thinking.
I'm back on the roller coaster again. I'm thinking this has to be hormonal. Last month around Jan 9th I had the same thing. One day to the next I'm suddenly STARVING. And while I'm eating more than I should, the weight gain is crazy. 4 lbs in the last 3 days ... and wouldn't you know it, almost a month to the day! I ate ALL my lunch by 11AM today and could easily eat another full meal now at noon.
I don't know whether to just eat a little more (but try not to go crazy overboard) and then just let things settle out again in a few days. Or, really put my foot down and not let whatever it is take over. I'm not stressed or anything, I feel 100%, I'm just H-U-N-G-R-Y!
All I know is I hope it does the same as last month and in a few more days I can start dropping weight again. Body's are funny machines!
