Warrior Girl Dashing…. T-18 and counting, but not eating enough

Lyric of the Day:

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again
Firework, Katy Perry

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

These are not my favourite lyrics. Not by a long shot, but I have to admit that, today, at T-18, it fits, because yes, Katy, yes, I do feel pretty paper thin.

I forgot to eat today. Or rather, I ate this:

4:30 am                1 egg omelette, black coffee

5:15 am                ¼ sesame seed bagel, I abandoned the rest because I lost my appetite

7:30 am                black coffee

9:00 am                black coffee

11:00 am              fruit smoothie (watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, banana OJ)

2:00 pm                attempted today’s training, felt ill. Gee, I wonder why.

Looking at that list, it seems pretty obvious that I eat neither enough nor well. Um, hydration? Water? Anyone? I know this about myself, but it is all too easy to float about in a cloud of undernourished denial (no wonder I feel loopy half the time when I am working in the morning). Writing it down, though, I can see it clearly. Mostly, I just can’t be bothered to eat, properly or not, because it is such a nuisance in the midst of a busy day juggling legal work, errands, housework and text-requests from my daughter. “Mom. Need my Crow Lake. Would you bring it to school?

Today’s Training:

  • 800 m run wow, and that felt pretty good, I must be underestimating the value of the 3 mile bike warm-up
  • 4 x monkey bar walks
  • Felt Dizzy
  • Ate something.
