Arrghhh… I don’t know what was up with me yesterday. I had a day of laziness – sleeping, snacking and playing spider solitaire. To top it all off, we went to the supermarket late last night then decided we needed coffees so went to a late night diner and had hamburgers! Not a good snack at midnight.
Sometimes I think you need a day off to get the mojo back, because I woke up this morning all primed to get back into it. I went down to Phil’s Bakehouse – home of delicious cupcakes and other yumminess – and got nothing but my morning coffee. I’m proud of my steely resolve.
Another motivating factor is that one of the guys on the Ausrun forum offered free running coaching as he wants to start working in that area. I’ve got a shiny new training program all printed out and stuck up on the fridge.
Oh and I’m loving cottage cheese at the moment. I’ve not eaten it for years – since I was about 12 and Mum made me do Weight Watchers. I thought I hated it after being force fed it for months but it rocks. How’s this for the most sanctimonious sounding dieter’s lunch – rice thins with tuna and cottage cheese, topped with capsicum and cucumber? But it was damn delicious.
It’s great to discover new low calorie foods like cottage cheese and tuna. It spices things up, kind of like when you’ve been married for 10 years so you need to dress up in the naughty nurse’s uniform (well so I’ve been told, not having been married).
