Yesterday I ate too much crap. I know it, my body knows it. Apparently my scale knows it, even though it is probably showing a natural fluctation, it just happened at the wrong time.
TODAY SHALL BE BETTER! I usually don't get worked up over a little bad food, but yesterday it was just out of control and there was nothing BUT bad food. Argh. Except my lunch, which was a grilled chicken open sandwich. The McFlurry chaser is when it all went downhill.
The plan for today is to not eat the crap! I have already started off on the right foot, with toast for breakfast. Soon I am off to the gym to do my weights. Then the healthy eating shall continue!
Additionally, I found this fun toy facinating!
It is a subway calulator, so you can get a clear picture of how many calories is actually in what you order. I was pleased to find out that my usual order is around 450 calories, which is right where it should be. My boyfriend was surprised to find out that his usual order (foot long on cheese bread with Italian BMT meats, cheese and ranch) was 1200 calories and over 100% of his daily recommended fat and sodium! That is more damage than a Big Mac combo! Sure there are more veggies, but a calorie is a calorie, and that is a lot of calories!

Holy cardio, Batman! In the past 3 days I have gone on an hours hike, a 2 hour walk and done 2 boxing classes, back to back! As well as a weights session on Tuesday. Whew! The holidays don't come around that often, so I am kicking it up a notch for a week, then we will go back to the regular programming.
I drove to McDonalds with the boyfriend (he can eat what he wants, I'm not his mother) and told myself that I could get a caramel sundae, my fave. I got there and I didn't feel like it! All I wanted was to go home and finish my fruit salad of kiwifruit, orange and peach. So I did. Less calories and better for me.
I got a new sports bra today. Those babies are expensive! But considering my old bra wasn't... supportive of my running, it was time. Seriously, half the time I thought my boobs were gonna fly up and hit me in the face.
Memo to past me: Just because you could get into it doesn't mean it fit! I wore a top today that I wore at my heaviest weight, because it is a bit stretchy, so I thought it fit. Yeah...It didn't. It looked nice today, but I dread to think how awful it must have looked 7kg (16lb) ago!
I am house sitting soon, for 3 weeks! My nana is going away and wants someone to feed her cat and generally look after her house. I offered to do it because A) I need some space from my mum. I love her, but she is hard work! and B) It is my old house! I lived there for 4 years before I moved back home and nana moved in.
And thats my life in a blog post!

Thanks to the encouragement and support of my wonderful spark friends, I have registered for the 5k RUN! On the 13th of May I will be running my first 5k! Thank you so much for your kind words, and for kicking my butt into doing this. Now, I just need to kick my runs up a notch and I should be fine.
In other news, the scale can't get enough of the low numbers this week! I have lost another 400g, which put me at 80.0kg this morning! That is a loss of 1kg this month, and we are only 10 days in! Considering I lost 600g last month, I think I'm off to a good start. I haven't done anything different (except eat easter chocolate...maybe that's the secret?!) so I have no idea why I have lost all of a sudden. I'm certainly not complaining!
I have been walking a lot these past 2 days. Yesterday I went on a hour long hike with the boyfriend, and we had to walk 15 minutes to and from the trail. It was fun, but man did my butt hurt this morning! Then today I went on a 2 hour, 7km walk with my best friend. It was nice to do something active together instead of sitting in a cafe drinking too much coffee. Our wallets and waistlines thanked us!

OK, so I like running, and do 3-5k about once a week. I walk/run and I am not the fastest person out. But I like it, and I am improving. I have done around 5 races, but I have always walked. Now, there is a 5k in a month. It is just down the road from my house, the course is easy and flat and it isn't expensive. The boyfriend thinks I should do it if I want to. So, I was going to register and I had to pick either 5k run or 5k walk. And I hesitated. Sure, I know I can walk it, but can I run it? Or even walk/run it?
I really want to do this, but I am scared of the unknown.
Encouragement/input is welcome! Should I do this 5k? Anyone wanna come and do it with me? I'll chip in for the entry fee, but the transport to Auckland/NZ is on you
