Day 1 of keeping a food log really opened my eyes! OMG!
1400+ calories seemed like a BIG number and seemed like I would never eat that amount of calories in a day. Well.. I went over my limit today. I wanted today to be a "regular" day so I can document the things I eat and see what my pitfalls were. But I did get more mindful about my choices. I will make a more concerted effort and plan and make better choices tomorrow. I have a feeling this log will help me achieve my goal.
I didn't do much. I went to work and coughed my lungs out. The kiddo I was with stared at me with her eyes wide open... giving me that "OK, don't die in front of me" look. I was so ready to be home. Mainly because I don't want to be coughing in front of anyone. This coughing business is getting old. It is seriously tiring to cough. Running is less painful and less tiring. Really.
We had a family dinner with the BIG family tonight. Before dinner, the boyfriend and I went to his dad's office and have him check out my cough. The doctor listened and said I have bronchitis. So, I'll be taking some medicine for that. Right now, I will have a coughing episode whenever I breathe somewhat deeply. I don't want to breathe anymore. Anyway... I guess, I will give it a couple of days for the meds to do its magic and then start training again.
Lastly, thank you for listening to me blah blah blah about things that aren't really running related these past few days and especially listening to me blah blah blah about weight gain. Yes, it's a few pounds and one may think that it is just vanity pounds. But .. you know, vanity pounds can add up.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that I will feel normal soon.
