Three Things Thursday

By Khourianya @khourianya

1)  I have the taper doldrums.  Not the crazies, since I am not tapering for a marathon...but with my 10k plan suddenly easing up - my motivation is gone.  I'm not worrying about it too much.  I really want to feel good for my big goal race on the extra time to rest and heal isn't a bad thing I suppose.  Especially since I am still super exhausted from the anemia.
2) My brain appears to be impaired.  I have caught myself falling into sugary eating patterns twice this week.  Once, it was when I decided to get a muffin instead of my usual eggs and toast in the cafeteria...and it wasn't until I ate the top of it that I realized "Crap - I don't eat this shit anymore"  and then this morning, I pulled out my travel mug to make my tea and almost decided to have coffee instead but realized I'd need sugar in it.  My sugar wean has been fairly pain-free.  I haven't really had to think alot about it - I just read labels and avoid it.  I was caught really off guard by how easy it would be to slip back into my old ways.
3) I think I finally decided what my next step is going to be.  I think I am going to do Whole 30 and 10 Minute Trainer as a one month challenge to myself.   I need to clean up my diet and I really need some strength training.   I think it will be a good kickstart to summer.  So - starting Monday?  Guess I'd better get prepping!
