"Food is the most widely abused anti-anxiety drug in America, and exercise is the most potent yet underutilized antidepressant."
Shins, meet frozen bags of vegetables….
Sit ups are the bane of my existence.
Yesterday I managed 100 before I fell asleep on my living room floor during a break.
My body hurts so much, but I did decide to get up early this morning to go to the gym. I ran for about twenty minutes, and finished 50 push ups. I have 50 push ups and 200 sit ups left for the day. It’s a good thing it’s only 9am.
because I’m too cool for ice packs.
I ran to Three chapters of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone on Audio today :)
Who knew that Hogwarts could be such a great motivator/distraction to exercise!?
And 5 miles, too!
My stomach is seriously unhappy with me
Happy Easter Everyone!!
Easter has not done my stomach any good. I started Easter off well with some cottage cheese and shredded apple. I went for a run soon after, and then we had brunch. Brunch was not all that bad and I had one pastry which I wasn’t upset about in the least because it’s okay to indulge once in a while!
Then…we played Canasta as a family. Unfortunately the Easter basket my mother gave me was within reaching distance, so naturally I had some chocolate.
Since then, my eating habits have been a little obscured and my stomach is yelling at me for my slip up.
Regardless, I hit the treadmill today and ran 5k. I still feel like it’s not enough and I have more to burn off, but I also need to remember that I haven’t taken a rest day in a long time…so I should probably take it easy if possible.
Don’t be afraid to indulge a little; in moderation, of course! :) Chocolate is delicious!
