Hungry Like a Wolf
Day 10 - Half Marathon Training Schedule - Rest or Crosstrain.
Crosstrain. Lower body workout done! Whew! I kicked my own @$$... I went just a little heavier on both the Bowflex resistance rods and dumbbells. (Leg extensions, leg curls and dumbbell squats.) I could have gone just a little heavier but I'm still being cautious. Being injured really throws a kink into everything, and I don't want to go back there. I also threw in two sets of 100 abs. My stomach is still off so 2 sets of abs was all I could muster.
I've been pretty diligent about tracking my food on Fitday. Since I've put the Syntrax Nectar into the mix, my ratios are much better, not so carb heavy. I also found myself not getting in enough calories some days, so I'm scrounging for something to eat (in the evening) to make up for the deficit. HOWEVER, the past couple of days I've been craving carbs in the evenings. I'm not sure what's up with that, but it could be the stomach icks I've had since Sunday. Don't know for sure.
The windows are installed and look great. Next is the touch-up paint, ceramic tile for the kitchen and sunroom, then a new roof... It will just keep building from there... I hope it gets to a point where it's just little stuff to take care of instead of this (temporary) money pit.
Last night I went with a friend to Fry's, which sells electronics, appliances, computers, etc. He wanted to borrow my Ford Explorer so he could transport his purchase. I went along for the ride to look at refrigerators. He found a 42" plasma screen TV there last week for what seemed like a good price. This week he noticed it was on sale, about $150 less than what he paid, so he went to get a refund on the difference and to buy another TV, the same model 42" plasma screen... He has the one he bought last night hiding at my house just until he can figure out how to tell his wife that he bought 2 TV's... His rationale is that one is for upstairs and the other is for downstairs. He's moving into a new house next month. Michael (my hubbie) thinks this is pretty funny... But if the truth were to be known, Michael would probably do the same thing...
