So I’ve been sick for the past four days and haven’t been able to bring myself to work out. It’s awful, I hate it!! No work outs, no running!! My 5K training has come to a standstill. Ugh. Luckily, the morning I started feeling sick I managed to get in a 2 mile run/walk along with a workout. I’m still super frustrated at the fact that I haven’t been able to work out. I usually work out everyday with a run on alternating days. And if I miss one workout, I freak so you can only imagine my feelings now. What is it about feeling like crap that makes us eat like crap? I have done so well since the new year with my resolution of no desserts during the week. The minute I started feeling sick made me feel like I had a free pass to indulge in crappy foods. Since I had already started and broke my resolution, why stop eating junk now? I’m still sick right? Grrr. I’m pretty sure it’s the irrational type of thinking that leads to overeating, food addiction, and obesity. Lucky for me, all I can think of is my chance to work out again and I’m going to do it double time. I’m pretty sure I’ve gained five pounds this week!
On another note, if you aren’t a member of DSW then what are you waiting for? If you don’t know about it, DSW is a shoe warehouse that offers discounted shoes for men and women. Not only do they have great prices, they have a clearance section with discounts up to 70%. As a member (which is free) you receive points every time you buy. Over time the store sends you a certificate in a dollar amount which matched the points you have earned. Recently, my mother (a shoeaholic) received a $30 certificate and offered it to me. She knows how hard I am training for my upcoming 5K and a new pair of running shoes would help out bunches. So I set out to the store and found this great pair of shoes!
They are much nicer and person and have pink on them!! They original price was $50 and they were in the clearance section marked 30% off taking the price down to $35. Don’t forget the $30 coupon!! Yup, I scored these bad boys for $5 and change! Many companies offer these types of memberships, but most will not let you use your coupons on clearance or sale items. Like I said, check out DSW, we all need shoes!
Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get my running shoes back on and get back into my routine!
