- It is good that I can still do gymnastics
- It is bad that I think I can still do gymnastics without warming up for at least an hour and taking an Aleve before and after.
- I should never try to do this when I have 6 miles left in the week to run.
As far as progress on my weekly targets: I can only add 1 mile to my run. I think I may have been a bit aggressive - but I will do as much as I can to finish strong.
For my birthday - our plan was to go see Spiderman 3 (not my choice). Little guy was so sweet about this. He said - we can go see Spiderman only if I want to go. What ever we do , it's ok as long as we are a family. I really wanted to either stay home and catch up on shows I've Tivo'd or go to the gym. I thought it would be pretty lame to be on a treadmill/or swimming laps on a Friday night especially a Friday night that is my birthday. As lame as it sounds , I would have had fun. I decided not to be a loner and to go to the movies with the kids and hubby. Well the movie was sold out so we ended up walking around a shopping area and hanging out at the game store. It was so hard not to make the night about food. The first choice I had was to go to a restaurant - a really delicious seafood restaurant. I wasn't hungry so I said no.
A year ago I would have never turned down dinner out on the town - no matter how full I was. I would have found room to just "taste" a few things. Today I opted for walking around and we ended up at a game store. We stayed there almost 90 minutes playing chess and other games. it was a blast.
So that is my Bday wrap up, sore from the cartwheels and hanging out a game stores. Just 30 minutes of cardio and strength. Nutrition - not terrific. 1385 calories : protein shake, tomoto soup and tofu, small salad, an Onion, Turkey patty , Tortilla chips and cottage cheese. Problem today was that I did not drink enough water. but it could have been much worse. The victory was figuring out how to celebrate in a way that does not revolve around food.
