You know how you don't hear from a heroin addict for a week, and it turns out he's holed up in some crack house, OD'ing and seeing dead babies on the ceiling? Well that's where I was for the past week- drunk on Diet Dr. Pepper and high on carbs. So I guess I lied last week when I said I was getting back on it then. I'm really doing it....starting now.
I did wog today, but I didn't do the couch to 5K workout. That program is terrific for people who are in better shape than I am, but it progressed too quickly for me. Instead, today, I walked to the front of the neighborhood, which was mostly uphill, so when I got to the end, I turned around and jogged downhill as far as I could. I continued in a similar pattern, jogging whenever I could downhill. I realized that the fact that I knew I wouldn't be able to complete the entire workout for the 3rd week of C25K was enough to deter me from even trying it. It's counterintuitive, I realize, since you can never do something if you don't try, so I just adjusted my routine to accommodate my current fitness level. I also started using the RunKeeper app because I have app ADD. I'm like a boy with video games. I need constant change to stay motivated and stimulated.
I don't even know what my whore scale has to say about my indiscretions. I'll deal with her on Friday.
