I know lots of people are posting about New Year's resolutions and such, but I always have a hard time starting resolutions on January 1st. For me, it's still a holiday. We get the day off of work and there's usually a decent amount of champagne consumed the night before. Resolutions really should start on January 2nd, in my opinion. I consider it a win that I've managed not to be hung over for the last 2 New Year's Eves. Win for Jaime!
Annnnyway... I was (semi) determined not to completely fuck up the first day of Janathon, but there were some obstacles.
First, we had mimosas at lunch today. Apparently, last night wasn't enough. We had to continue consuming champagne today as well. I was still determined not to miss my first run (or walk) of the challenge, so I told myself we could enjoy our mimosas, then I could take a nap in the afternoon and be ready to go... even if I just went out and walked a mile.
Then I got home and cocooned myself on the couch and slept waaaaay longer than I was planning. My kitties had the same idea and planted themselves on top on me for the afternoon.
|They didn't want me to get up, either.|
Well, I'm happy to report that not only did I run 3 miles, I actually pushed myself to do 4. And by the time I was done, it was 8PM and I decided to use a little will power and keep myself from racing over to Pei Wei when I was done.
I had a gluten free brownie left over from last night instead. Because that's what athletes do, right? All I know is the total calories in that brownie were way less than the chicken Pad Thai I originally planned on scarfing.
Happy New Year everyone! 2014 is the year of the horse and what could be better for this horse lover than that?
