Whaaa? I'm starting to feel really silly for not getting back on track right when I got home from vacation...I've already nearly made up for my 3.4 lb gain from Saturday.
Wall push-ups - 2 sets x 25
Tricep dips - Week 1 Day 1, 150 dips program - 6/6/5/5/8
Bicep curls - 10 lb dumbbells - 2 sets x 10 (too heavy for good form, I'll be using 5 lbs next time)
Treadmill - 7.86 miles in 1:45:00 (13:21 pace)
I will admit I got a little teary-eyed after the run. I ran over 7.5 miles without stopping to walk. It finally really hit me that I am actually a runner, no matter how slow I may be. I mean really, what percentage of the population can say they have *ever* run that far?
Seems like a really long time to spend on the dreadmill, but I was watching Beetlejuice so I was thoroughly entertained. I LOVE that movie! "What are your qualifications?" "Ah, I attended Julliard. I am a graduate of Harvard Business School. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen 'The Exorcist' 167 times, and it keeps gettin' funnier EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT. NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY!" Ahh, good times. And of course there's this classic scene:
I tried to do the dance along with them while I was running...it didn't work very well. Does anyone remember the Beetlejuice cartoon show? ...I digress.
I had my post-run nausea thing hit me again (it's been a while), and I'm fairly sure I'm going to be very sore tomorrow (I'm icing my knee as I type this because it's pretty achy), but I am pleased as punch with myself. 23 Activity Points in one go! I also discovered that BodyGlide might be necessary on long runs on areas that I hadn't even considered...
As for the food log, I went a bit over my daily allowance on points today. Weight Watchers gives you 49 extra points for the week that you can use if you so choose, and considering I burned off well over 1000 calories today, a little more food isn't gonna hurt me!
Dinner was really point-heavy. Mom asked me to finish off the chicken salad, but I still had another dairy serving, both oils, and 3 fruit/veg to meet my healthy checks, so I ate a lot (not that that's a hardship or anything). As for lunch, I had a Morningstar Farms Veggie Corn Dog for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised! I honestly couldn't tell the difference between that and a "real" corndog, and even when I ate some of the "meat" by itself the taste was very close. Thumbs up!
