Day 4 of Nutrisystem went well. I haven’t deviated from the diet, which I am proud of seeing as I typically eat everything in sight.
I’m finally reaching the point where I may actually have a set sleeping pattern in place, which is not only helping my functionality, but also my mood.
Yesterday was my rest day. I pretty much did dishes and some light housework. My Fitbit was probably digitally facepalming itself at my pitifully low number. Even my SO (who is handicapped) beat my steps.
The night before last I went for a run. It was the beginning of week 2 in my “Couch to 5K” training. I decided to go at 930pm instead of my usual 230am. Which on a scale of ‘comfortable’ to ‘I need my concealed carry’, was closer to the latter. I live in a bar town. Simultaneously a college town. This means any array of douche canoes can be encountered at any given moment. I had people honking, cat calling, yelling, pulling up next to me in their car, and other all around super uncomfortable encounters. All in a 2 mile run. I’m sure this is amplified by my near non-existence in humanity, but geez!
I signed up for my first 5k the other day. I have walked 5k’s and 10k’s, but have never run one. Small mileage, but a big deal to me. Of course I chose my first run to be “the color vibe” because A: i’ve always wanted to do that, and B: no need to take things too serious. I would like it to be fun. So far, I’m running alone. I invited a few others, no telling if they will join or not. Either way, I’m running my first run.
I had a good arm day at the gym today. That left me with a sense of accomplishment. Tomorrow is back to running. Starting Wednesday, I begin training with my personal trainer 3x a week. I AM SO EXCITED.
In other news. My SO told me that he will pay for me to get my CNA. I just registered for classes in the fall. I was hoping to be able to take the classes over summer, but nothing fit with my work schedule. The only one that fit with work was in June and there is a week in June that I will be doing a week long recovery coach training and will not be available. So, fall semester will be intense. Come Christmas time I will be a certified recovery coach, a certified nurses aid, and still be in the makes of becoming an AODA counselor. (…and in my day dreaming fantasies… a body builder.)
That’s all I have for now.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
