Just when I thought I was rolling along, not feeling any cravings and thinking that I could do this for the long run, a day like today comes along.
I do not know what was different, or what triggered this but it felt like a struggle today to follow the plan. I didn't veer off the path, although someone put brownies AND chocolate candy in the teachers' lounge AND someone put cookies and candy in the office. But...I felt a little deprived today. I think I could have eaten a whole pizza and 4 or 5 brownies. But the good thing is that I didn't.
That time of the month has arrived and I am going to blame that, and hope tomorrow goes a bit better. It has also been a pretty stressful last week or so at school and finishing up the swim season. That doesn't help.
WORKOUT: roads are a mess and I got home late from school, rushed to the treadmill and only had time for 4 miles (of planned 6) before I had to take Megan to gymnastics.
I am tired of running on the treadmill! :(
