Bad food and a 5k!

Let's rewind to Friday. My goal was to eat a good healthy pasta dinner and get a good night sleep. Well. FAIL! Let me explain. Earlier in the week, my aunt called to see if I wanted to do some work landscaping with her. Because I am jobless I said yes. Then she said I had to be there at 5:30 on Friday morning. AM! A morning person ≠ me. Well, Thursday night Russ I went up to Heber for our horse club practice. We didn't get home until 2 in the morning! That meant I had to do some pretty heavy landscaping duty on 3 hours of sleep. Sigh. I got home at 2, decided a nap might not be the best idea so I stayed awake until Russell's brother's birthday dinner. Where did we go? Pasta? Nope. Goodwood Barbecue. (I don't know if I have mentioned this yet, but since I have been doing the VBD thing, I can't eat beef. Sad, really, cause I LOVE a good steak, brisket or pot roast.) There wasn't anything on the menu that I wanted to eat, so I settled on a turkey sandwich, no mayo. It was ok, but it wasn't the pasta dinner I was looking forward to. I also wanted to get a good nights sleep and I did go to bed at 10:30, but with the lack of sleep the night before (And the heavy duty yard work) took its toll, and I was pretty tired on race day.

Race Day!!

See Sam's post for the pictures! I was really hoping to beat my best time ever which is 33 something, but it wasn't in the cards. My finish time was 34:50. I was feeling a little down on myself and then I realized that it was my best time this year and I have only been running for about 2 months where last year I trained for 6 months before my first 5k. I still want to get under 30 minutes and I know I can! I'm running another 5k on Sunday and hopefully this time I will be rested! Here's to 32 minutes!

Bad food weekend:

Egg white omelet = Good
Egg white omelet drowning in butter = Bad

Date night with the hubby = Good
Cheese enchiladas = bad

I didn't follow the VBD at all this weekend (Or today) and I feel like CRAP! I love that my body now tells me to stay away from no-no foods. Honestly, those cheese enchiladas were just way too much and made me really really sick. I don't want to feel like that again, so I won't eat like that again.

Tomorrow's goal: 4 miles on the boring boring treadmill. I've got to make it to a 10k by Sam's birthday!

PS Saturday was Sam's first 5k ever and she ROCKED it! I am SO SO proud of her!
