People with Polar Fit watches:
Tell me everything about them!
I really really want one, and have seen excellent reviews of them. I just want to know more about how YOU use them and your experience with them.
Let me know! Are they worth it?
It’s amazing how a five pound gain can affect your self esteem.
Also also! (Because I’m sure you care)
It makes me unreasonably happy that my cat waited to go to bed until I got home from the gym. She was laying on the sofa when I walked through the door, even though Cody and the dog were already back in the bedroom asleep. As soon as I came through the door she got up, stretched, and followed me around until I got under the covers— then she proceeded to hop up and cuddle up against my neck/chest.
I know it’s petty, I’m just so excited that Kitty still loves me best.
I’ve been running my miles with my sister outside in her neighborhood. Tonight I completed them on the treadmill at the gym. Two things I’d forgotten about treadmills:
1. They make running WAY easier on your body!
2. They make running WAY harder on your mind!
Even though I couldn’t keep myself from staring at the time and distance on the treadmill instead of, you know, just running— I found tonight’s workout to be really enjoyable. I got red faced and sweaty, but I really feel that tonight’s run turned around my mood. Like. Hello, endorphins! Thanks for making me happy!
Because although my post earlier may make it seem as though my attitude was “so I binged, oh well!” It really was a lot closer to “I hate myself why the fuck did I eat that stuff I wasn’t even really that hungry holy cow I’ve gained weight I am going to look six months pregnant in a not glowing but totally disheveled way”. (Yay run on sentences!) After my run I felt much closer to the calm, collected, “it was just one time” reaction— and didn’t hate myself as I got ready for bed in front of the mirror.
Oh this strange relationship with working out and eating. My mind is definitely a work in progress.
Planned out meals today— ate fabulously and on point.
Then came home from work and ravaged the kitchen. Welp. That wasn’t part of the plan!
Here is to acknowledging that I was hungry and that my body craved food. Extra calories are not the end of the world. Planning better for tomorrow.
Also: Heading to the gym! Not to burn the extra calories I just consumed— but to complete what I’ve got on my training calender.
