Daily Mood and Food/Fitness: Mon, Dec 5
Today started out s……l……o……..w but got going eventually. I blame my bad Hunger Games inspired dreams for the slow start.
This is Solo. He has been doing some variation of barking for the part 3 hours. EVEN after I took them for a walk. Any suggestions on how to relieve a hound dogs boredom and I am all ears. An afternoon walk is apparently not enough.
So my mood is frustration. But Michael is home now so he can help, with the dog at least. And I can finish up dinner preparation and try to talk Michael into playing a boardgame with me!
Food: A good day overall. Trainer Victor is looking at my food journals tomorrow to find out why I am still holding on to about 8 extra lbs from this time last year. I have a feeling, after seeing them on paper myself, that he is going to tell me I am not eating enough. Breakfast: Coffee, Nature Valley Dark Chocolate Thin, Banana. Lunch: Turkey Burger on a Deli Flat with guacamole and carrots. Snack: Honeycrisp apple and one magic bar. Dinner: Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup with Pillsbury French Loaf.
Fitness: I ran 5.25 miles in 59:40. That included intervals at race pace, 10k pace and 5k pace. It was so-so. But it got done.
