Out fighting the wind and the cold with Dud!  Glad he suggested going east/west as the original plan was north/south which would have been miserable coming north!

Finding My Balance

April 19, 2014
Inspires : 1


I've been in a really low place lately - binging on food, alcohol, cigarettes. Not getting enough sleep, gaining weight. I'll pull it together for a couple days to slide back down. Yesterday, I ate so much I actually threw up. And then I ate some more. I am the sickest I've been in a long, long time with my eating disorder and my obsessive/anxiety issues.

That said, I AM going to get myself out of this, one day at a time. Today, I am meeting a friend at the gym for a workout. I haven't exercised in weeks and have been finding subs for my classes because I couldn't face my students looking and feeling the way I do. The house has plenty of healthy food in it; it's just a matter of eating it instead of scrounging for crap. I am hoping that being honest with where I am, even on a mostly anonymous blog, will help me get better. We're only as sick as our secrets, right?

2 sets of 15:
Dumbbell pullovers
TRX tricep extensions

Case had a funny conversation with one of our neighbors this morning. Apparently Yellowbird (one of our cats) went in his dog door and made himself at home :). Silly cat.

Decent Ride, But Challenging Start
Ok, so being Easter weekend, none of my usual riding buddies were available to go on a ride this morning, and I knew I needed to get something in, so decided to head down and ride the Trinity Trail.   It's a great place to ride most of the time, off the roads, so has a good degree of safety, and lots of bike traffic so that if you have an issue, you'll get seen and taken care of.   Occasionally, they will have a 5k race along the trail, or some other type of running activity, so sometimes there will be significantly more foot traffic than on a typical day.
Well, today - I should have guessed - had a HUGE 5k/10k race along the section of the route where I usually start my ride.  UGH.  There were so many runners that there was NO WHERE on that 3-4 mile section of trail that I could ride safely. So jumped back in the car, and decided to hit a different section of the trail going the other way.  So about a mile dow[...]

Just Enjoy the Moment

Medium to long run......trip to the gym and grocery shopping.....cleaning....busy day.
Pretty decent, did the first 4 miles in about 36:45.....did my Harrowgateshortie route with the shortie (done backwards to add more hill work).  Perfect run conditions, overcast and drizzly.
Used one of the workouts posted at the gym in the AmFam 360 pamphlet.  This one was fun, but damn it was hard.  I think my broad jump max was about 3 carpet squares (if that's a 12 to 15 inch square we can tell my broad jump isn't very broad).  I knew I worked pretty hard with the workout though and it was tough to get through--but it was a good one.

squat w/ 12 lb. body bar overhead 1 min

It's interesting to me that when I juice, eat raw/vegetarian and limit dairy & meat my weight never really fluctuates but this past couple of days we've been eating out and meat once or twice a day and Thursday I was 138 and I day I'm 142. Whatever... Must be the salt or something.

Train As You Are

Gym and a run today.

Back: deadlifts, wg pull downs, barbell rows, and straight arm push downs
Abs: 75 situps on an incline, and then standing pull overs with cable/20 reps each side, 2 sets

Run, 5.26 miles

I've taken weight lifting a little lighter, so that I can continue putting most of my energy towards training for the hm in June. Hard to believe it's nearly here!

I'm hopeful of just finished, to be honest. I would like to fall somewhere in the middle of the pack, if possible...from a time standpoint.

Whatever you celebrate tomorrow, have a happy day!
