RAN 60 MINS
AWWW YEAHH. Burned something like 550 kcal! When I count the candies and my exercising, my calorie intake for now is pretty normal amount, so I think I’ll do fine if I’ll only eat something little (I’m not hungry and it’s 6PM).
Funny thing is, it didn’t hurt that much. I mean, the first time I ran, I could’ve died and I only ran for 30 mins. Now I’ve doubled that and I could’ve ran even longer (didn’t want though, because it was becoming a bit boring). I sped up at uphills and at the end too, so I’m happy!
I also made a playlist that was 60 mins long and at the end I was like “ok this is the last song” and another song started to play.. and I though that was the last song and then, another song again. I was like “just HOW many songs can there be in 60 minutes?!”.
But yeah, I’ll do my leg exercise and sit-up challenge too! And bike stationary.
I should plan a route that would take about 60 minutes, now I was just going round and round the same areas waiting for 60 minutes to be over.
Well isn’t this weird
I usually HATE running when I think about it. I have my rest day now so I’m not supposed to do anything. Yet, I CRAVE FOR RUNNING. I am honestly so tempted to go outside and run.
Just two weeks ago I was such a lazyball who wouldn’t move an inch but now I can’t stand still.. this school stuff I keep mentioning, I can’t make myself to do it because I’d have to sit still.
Browsing Tumblr is ok tho, it feels like a part of my healthy lifestyle since I only follow weightloss or health related blogs.. but I’m constantly thinking that I should be doing something else. Not in a bad way, I don’t feel pressured to work out but I think I’m a bit hooked. I blame it on that I don’t have anything else going on with my life. I guess running is my therapy and I’m seriously needing it..!
Ok I had that weird feeling today too.. I had thoughts like “I’m not going to lose weight”. So I don’t know why, but at some point I just wanted to have something GOOD, like candy or something. I bought some double nougat bar because it always gives me the NEVER AGAIN feeling (so at least I won’t crave anymore) and it was about 300 calories. Ate it but obviously didn’t help. I didn’t really try to get over the little anxiety, I just really wanted something unhealthy.
After a while I said to myself “Fuck it, nothing’s gonna change if I just roll here doing nothing. I may as well do something useful” and went jogging. I’ve been a bit lazy with cardio these last few days and my runs have always been like 15 min or something. This time I decided to take the longer way that I did in the beginning.
And damn.. people always talk about the feeling after the workout, but the first steps of my run I felt like the queen of the world again! I was sooo happy, like I kinda figured out why I’ve felt so weird lately. I ran and ran and noticed that I’m a bit stronger.. I didn’t feel tired in the parts I usually feel tired and the super heavy uphill was almost nothing! At the end of my trip I wasn’t like OHH IT HURTS tired so I ran a bit further!
Then I saw that my dad had put the sauna ready.. honestly, one of the best things ever is to stretch in sauna after a good workout. I also noticed that the stretches that usually hurt like hell felt nothing.. I guess I’ve stretched enough haha!
I just came from the sauna and I’m now eating this super delish fruit cocktail thing.. only about 165 calories!
Hope you guys are as happy as I am now! :)
Running is like mouthwash; if you can feel the burn, it’s working.
I really need to buy a gym card
I want to run on a treadmill! I went running today too, took a bit different route but it was still almost the same. I hate that I’m not exactly sure how much calories am I burning while running. So I’m afraid that it’s less than I think and I eat too much and stuff like that.. treadmill shows me how much I’m burning so I prefer it over running outside.
I also started Two hundred squats challenge thing and I got like 54 squats from the test.. that means excellent so I can start at Week 3. I’m not really buying that I can be excellent at doing squats so I’m a bit confused but I watched a tutorial and stuff so I don’t think I’m not doing them wrong or anything. I’m just not believing myself lol!
My friend’s visiting me tomorrow and we’re supposed to eat pizza or something.. I promised this before I started my diet but I hope there’s like small fries that I can share with my friend. I don’t want to be like “oh I’m just watching you eat” but I don’t want to eat anything huge either!
I looooove this remix, great for treadmill!
