Isn’t it amazing how you can spend all day making good choices, and then a 5-minute lapse in judgement sets you waaaayyyy back? It’s such a bad, de-motivating way to end the day, and that pretty much sums up my week. Some great workouts and good choices, followed by colossal 5-minute food failures. Today it was a long stressful day, followed by a bowl of high-calorie homemade ice cream. Wow, 660 calories in 1 cup of ice cream? Holy cream! That’s like 8 cups of blueberries! I’m tempted to dump every ounce of sugar in my house, but that won’t fix my willpower issue. I guess I’ll need to get up early and do 30-minutes on the elliptical to burn that off.
On the plus side, I discovered another running trail gem in Billings, Montana. One of my favorite parts of business travel is finding cool new workout spots. This week, I was travelling in remote Montana (my cell phone didn’t even work!) and found a great park atop a mountain overlooking Billings. Headed out for a short walk, and ended up running 4.5 miles with ease. Very nice.
A little nervous about weigh-in tomorrow, but determined to keep going. Only 7 weeks until my self-proclaimed deadline. Next week I’m headed to Phoenix and hope to discover some great hiking trails and healthy Mexican food!
