I have been so hyper in the mornings lately. I just feel energized all day--and I haven't even been drinking that much coffee, just my normal 1 double shot espresso at home in the a.m. Maybe it's the christmas music keeping me peppy? Maybe it's my metabolism cranked up? Maybe it's the 60% raw diet?
So speaking of the raw diet--man raw fruits and veg dont' fill you up. Your stomach wrenches all day begging for bread or cheese...or a large pizza!! You fight through it, eat another apple and some water and wait for your one cooked meal of the day! lol I know Jess knows what i'm talking about here.
We went to a Thanksgiving potluck last Saturday at my friends and I ate so much food! It was so nice to go mingle with friends sans baby. I love my kid, but sometimes it's nice to mingle and chat with adults without chasing her and having climb all over me. So the party was nice.....but the next day I had gained a pound! Geesh. So I worked really hard Monday and Tuesday to eat 60% raw and workout.
Saturday I ran sprints, Sunday I did a mile trial (and cut over 1 minute off my mile!!!) and yesterday I did a "recovery non-running workout" which was the elliptical. Man, the elliptical KILLED me. I had to keep telling myself to just suffer through the 30 minute workout. I used to think the elliptical was an "easy" workout and running was hard. No a 3-4 mile jog is easy and enjoyable and the elliptical blew. I don't know how Courtney does 1 hour a day on that thing--god bless you preggo lady!
So this morning I was 182.0 lbs!!!! lowest yet!!!! Go Me!!! Can you sense my enthusiasm!? Today I am doing an interval training session and Thursday is a long 5 mile run before the turkey feast!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm going to do a little photo session with my mom and Mimi thursday in her fall dress--hope to post some nice ones!
