This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
I’ve been feeling kind of crummy about my body since the marathon ended about a week and a half ago. I know I have no reason to… It’s just that I haven’t been doing hardly any activity. It feels really weird to me that I’m not running at all. And when I’m not running, I think I feel less motivated to strength train. :(
I tried to run tonight, and I only got up to 1.5 miles before feeling knee pain. UGH. Just why?!!!
I still did some ab work at the gym after my fail of a run. I really need to get back into a routine, because I’m feeling really lazy, sluggish and tired all the time. I feel so much more invigorated when I work out regularly. I biked 8 miles on Tuesday, but it’s just not the same thing as a good run. Sigh.
Still about 115 lbs here, but I can definitely tell I’ve lost definition in my arms, stomach and legs. Time to change that.
I just want to run. :( I HATE knee problems.
Anyway, on a different note, I tried making overnight oats tonight. I don’t have chia seeds, so we’ll see how it comes out tomorrow morning. I made the Banana Cocoa version with cocoa powder, banana and blue agave nectar!
