Well, nearly a full week in! I am not having as many problems with “carb flu” as I was, I think because I am eating a Larabar before kickboxing (people frown on this, but I think eating it before a hard workout is good). No cravings.
One thing I do feel is kind of heavy. Not bloated (!!), but like my feet are magnetic. Also, when I wake up in the morning I don’t feel ready to go, I feel like I could sleep longer and usually I can. This is probably a good thing since I am usually a light sleeper.
Now that I am one week in, I’ve decided to try a challenge for one week.
Challenge 1: Running
I like to run, but it kind of goes by the wayside in winter. Last winter, I actually did run several times per week outside, because I was training for a marathon. This winter, I haven’t been as good.
My challenge to myself will be, for the next seven days, to run six miles per day. I will start today, because next Thursday I have to work from 6am-10pm, so will not exercise at all that day.
