Yay for two-a-days!!
I went back to the gym and ran two more miles in just under 14 minutes, and then did some arm, chest and ab work outs. I did a tiny bit of legs, but something is going on with my knee and I couldn’t handle it. I think I’m going to get a brace for it in the next couple of days if it doesn’t feel better. And maybe buy new running shoes, because there’re a lot of miles on the ones I have now.
I ate some more fruit, and some more salad. Pretty late night eating, but I burned over a thousand calories at the gym today and I had eaten around 200 calories total. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to eat a little more. My boyfriend made a pizza after his workout (with tons of veggies, and vegan crust) and gave me some bites of the crust because I was craving carbs. I only ate a few bites, but it was weird having the “bread” sensation in my mouth. I realized that I’ve only been eating raw food the past few weeks with a couple of exceptions, so it’s really weird when I switch it up at all. I might go for some whole grain pasta tomorrow night with my own homemade tomato sauce (fresh tomatoes, reduced with 1/4 cup water, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and a tiny drop of olive oil). I sometimes mix some vegan pesto in with it to add some basil-y flavor. I haven’t had pasta since studying abroad last semester, though, and I don’t know if I want to break the routine I have going now. I think I’ll probably end up just getting a salad, but we’ll see. If I’m not absolutely craving something besides salad, I’ll just stick to it!
Nothing much more to report. I’m working on some homework tonight, and hoping to get to bed earlier than last night (3 am). I was tossing and turning and couldn’t fall asleep. I know that getting enough sleep is an integral part of losing weight, and lowering stress levels so I want to make sure that I’m covering all the bases.
