Additional Goal For This Week

I remembered last night (after downing way too much wine) that another one of my goals is to drink moderately from now until the race. My revised goals for the week are:

  1. Watch the nutrition (track what I eat)
  2. Take vitamins every day
  3. Drink 64 oz of water each day
  4. Follow my training plan
  5. Go to yoga once
  6. Drink VERY moderately
This morning I started my new morning routine and successfully completed all of the following:

  1. Make the bed
  2. Shower/groom
  3. Get dressed
  4. Make coffee and brekkie
  5. Clean and set up shop for the day
It felt pretty good but I'm still having a hard time being focused on work. Cleaning and setting up shop for the day was tough - even though the place didn't seem that dirty or disorganized it took forever to do this and I really didn't get started on work until 9, which is terrible. I'm going to make a point of cleaning up as much as I can the night before. Duh!

I am trying so hard this week to moderate my eating too, but it is really difficult. Here's what I've consumed so far today:
  • coffee - two cups
  • H2O - 32 oz.
  • english muffin with butter
  • yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
It is 11 a.m. and that's about 430 calories so far....am I wrong to think this is a lot of cals so far in the day? The real problem is that I'm practically sitting on my hands to stop myself from eating more. I'm going to focus on making a good lunch, eating it somewhat early and have it all digested for my afternoon run.

Am I being crazy about this right now?

You are being a little crazy - but that's how people get stuff done. The big question is - have you had a drink yet today?

I could totally use one, but unfortunately, I think that's frowned upon in the office!

I don't think that's too many calories...in fact, most reports now say that eating a breakfast of 350 - 600 calories is good. I can't ever seem to choke down food in the morning...unless it's AFTER the gym then I'm ravenous!

Not drinking is impossible. That's what I have to say.
