I worked out last night, meaning to go a good 4 miles. However, the upset tummy demon caught me again and I spent half of my workout time in the bathroom. Yuck! I really need to find out what is causing that. I'd like to say it only happens every now and then, but to be honest its almost a daily occurence. I don't think I'm allergic to anything, but I need to watch certain foods I eat.
This may sound weird, but I really don't mind when my belly is upset. When it is cramping and hurts, yes I do, but when it is just rumbly and such, I don't mind it. I think it is because I am just used to it. It's pretty bad to say that I don't mind having the shits. The only time that I really mind it is when I'm trying to get a good workout in. I mean, I was so motivated to rock that treadmill last night, but grumbly tummy got in the way.
Needless to say I only got in 2.5 miles. Not bad but I'm behind in my miles for the month. Tonight I'm going to stick to it until I get in at least 4.5 miles of running/walking. I have no fiance to go home to tonight, so I can spend all the time I want in the gym, working my ass off. I'm so ready to see that scale go down, and I know that if I work hard enough this week, I'll be down at least a pound. Keep it up!
I was reading Scale Junkie's post about planning out food. It is completely true for me too! I am the most successful in my health journey when I plan it out. And come to think of it, I'm pretty much more successful in everything I do when I plan. I should probably add that to my goals for the month. Not only am I going to get in 60+ miles, I'm going to plan my meals each week. I am proud of myself though, because while I'm in desperate need of going to the grocery store, I haven't made it yet this week. Last night I was really wondering what I was going to make myself for dinner, and I could have gone an easy route and made mac-n-cheese or something gross like that, but I went healthy.
*And the lightbulb went off just now as I was thinking about what I ate for dinner. I had cantaloupe for dinner, as well as yesterday as a mid-morning snack. My tummy was rumbly all day after that, and also rumbly all night. Ding Ding Ding!!!! Cantaloupe! *Note to self: Don't eat cantaloupe before a workout!!!
On another note, I'm proud of myself: I took my vitamins last night and this morning!!! I've been slacking lately, and I need to get my routine back for taking them twice a day!
