Since we got married on Saturday, I think there are a few days in there that I haven’t run or worked out. Friday, before I drove down for the rehearsal and the night before the wedding, I managed to sneak in a short run, but Saturday, the day of, and Sunday, not only did I not run, I ate like I had never seen food before in my life.
Usually in my life, I try to be conscious of what I put into my mouth, without being obsessive. I flip over labels, check to make sure that high fructose corn syrup isn’t the first ingredient, and I’m loving that they put calories on the menus now, so I’m far less liable to put something in my mouth that doesn’t belong there.
Friday night, I noshed on some delicious food at our rehearsal. Don’t worry, I have some gorg pics on my camera, as soon as I figured out where that camera is. Saturday morning, and Sunday morning, I ate biscuits from a little joint North Carolina has to offer called Biscuitville, with no shame or remorse. I didn’t have my first run until Monday, and quite honestly, I’m feeling a little funny about it. The run itself was a dream – it was my first run with my new husband, but I felt weird about the fact that I skipped out for a few days.
I can’t honestly remember the last time I’ve gone so many consecutive days without a good run, and consecutive days of eating crap. I think sometimes, my fear is that if I go too long without working out, that I will start drinking cokes, and suddenly become disinterested in working out. But it doesn’t typically work like that, does it?
But, I’m taking these next few days to get back on track. Get back to my runs, my yoga, my cycling sessions. It’s a feel-good thing, not even a weight thing – and I hate the sloppy, slow feeling you get after a few days of not treating yourself right.
Oh yea, also, I had to bathe my cats again – as the weather cools down and the fleas start to make their way back into the apartment, I have to wash/clip all my pets….on my honeymoon.
How long is the longest you’ve gone without working out? What did you do to get yourself back on track?
