I am not a big sweets eater. Personally, I love me some carbs. A loaf of french bread and some fancy cheese? Don't mind if I do.
For some reason last night I was hit with a Sweet Tooth Attack. Luckily, I had prepared for this. We had a bunch of sweets hanging around from Christmas and instead of being wasteful I put them all in the basement freezer. That way we would have access to them if we had company and wanted to put out something nice for dessert. I am not a fan of the basement (I'm afraid of the dark BIG TIME) so I don't often venture down there at night.
Instead of caving and eating an entire bag of frozen chocolate chip cookies I had a bowl of Trader Joe's O's cereal with 1/2% milk. It didn't put me over on calories according to myfitnesspal and it satisfied my craving so wins all around for everyone. I win! You win! We all win!
Unfortunately, I did not run this morning. It was butt ass cold out and yesterday's snow was really yesterday's rain so I was afraid it would be more of an ice skate than a run. I don't feel bad about it exactly, but I do wish I had done something. This is when I wish we had a treadmill or an elliptical at the house. I don't want to join a gym but it would be nice to have SOMETHING around for back-up runs.
I have plans this evening and tomorrow is supposed to be a rest day. We'll see if I can get a little bit of running in.
My goal for the 5K on Saturday is a sub-40 minute 5K. I know that's not super impressive compared to most people's goals, but it is MY goal and it will be a PR for me so I'm gunning for it. We'll see if the weather cooperates.
Anyone else racing this weekend?
