It's going to be hard to get Day 21 done - feeling rather lazy today. OK, and it didn't help that I scoffed a big bag of sour cream and onion chips down over the last two days! For those interested, it was not a half and half scoffing - it was an eat-until-you-can't-eat-another feast on Wednesday and then what was leftover got inhaled yesterday! Hey, I said I was giving up fast food, not junk food!
Speaking of fast food - had some real cravings over the last week or so. I came back from my run on Tuesday, took a shower, got dressed and this thought popped into my head: Some Dairy Queen onion rings would be really, really good right now! I think that's what started the ball rolling because since then I've been visualizing burgers and fries and onion rings, oh my!! I've kept it in check, though.
I wonder sometimes what next January will be like. I mean here we are in May and I'm still wanting the fast food. When my self-imposed fast food sabbatical ends, will I spend the entire month of January gorging on burgers, fries and onion rings? Or will I take one bite and go 'blech'? I guess we'll have to wait and see. I've got to get through the next 7 months first!!
Back to my laziness. At sometime today I have to find the energy to get a run done. My legs feel good, so it's more a matter of my brain trying to convince me I'm tired. It's cloudy and misty this morning, so I may decide on a treadmill run (change is as good as a rest - a wonderful saying my mother always used) later today. I certainly would not be eligible for the Running Streak Association as I've slipped in a couple of spin bike sessions AND I use the treadmill - they advocate that the running has to be done sans machine assistance. Personally, the treadmill is of no assistance to me - I still have to move my legs and I still end up sweating profusely! Yep, it might be a treadmill day!
No matter what I do, I will run. I'm almost half way through the 50 Day Craziness, can't give up now! I am amazed at how strong my body really is - somewhere in the back of my mind I knew I wasn't pushing myself enough (that brain taking the easy way out again). I expected a little twinge here or there, maybe a cranky (as Keith dubs it) knee or hip, but nothing. Not too bad for a 50 year old body!!
All right, pattered on along enough. Have a great weekend everyone - feel free to share your weekend plans in the comment section. Or give a prediction of what my January will be like once I come off my fast food break. Or tell me your favorite flavor of potato chip. Or tell us what kind of crazy 'quest' you'd take on if you were, well, crazy!!
