Day 9-a step or so backwards

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.

So...

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! :(

NUTRITION:
BF: steel cut oatmeal with protein powder, blueberries, almonds, agave nectar

morning snack: almonds, dried apricot

lunch: salad, 1 cup of fire roasted Vegetable soup from Heinen's

afternoon: apple, Larabar

dinner: roasted pears and golden potatos, jicama salad, unsweetened applesauce

will probably have some peach Teavana roobois tea tonight

I LOVE Teavana teas! I bought John 3 different ones last year for his birthday and the bill came to $180! I about fainted...but we have over 50% of it still left a year later and we drink it ALL the time, so I think I just went overboard on the amount that I bought not realizing just how little it takes when you brew it!
