Day 12 of the 'staying within calories challenge' and only the second day that I have managed to stay exactly where I should be in each category (calories, carbs, fat and protein). I can stay in my calorie range, which is the point of this challenge- but it's near impossible to get my carbs, fat and protein exactly within bounds each and every day. I always manage to be below or over in one of those. Ah well... feels good to be on a streak for this long! I am so loving it!
I completed day 2 week 3 of the couch to 5k program and let me say IT WAS ROUGH! I know I seem to say that each week on day 2... but really... on the last run I felt like I might throw up. But again, somewhat self inflicted as I was running uphill and pushing Xavier. It always seems like such a good idea when I start my trail and then near the end I am really regretting it. But the only way to get back home is going up hill after you have gone down. That's what happens when you live on a mountain :) Anyway... I feel good now that it is done. I am thinking flat trial is in the future for day 3 though, LOL.
Weigh in is on Wednesday (as usual). I have been soooo tempted to step on the scale. I have come to the conclusion that I am simply not the type of person who can touch the scale more than once a week. I just become obsessed, then depressed and next thing you know I am weighing 4 or 5 times a day with mood swings you'd never believe. So once a week and that one and only time am I allowed to touch the scale. Wednesday mornings after I have woke up and used the restroom. I am kinda nervous for this next one. My weight has stayed the same for two weeks in a row. Granted last weigh in was during TOM but- I will be a tad disappointed if it doesn't move and I mean in the downward direction. Ah, guess time will tell. Either way, I am going to stay positive!
Ah... and today is my wedding anniversary... I nearly forgot. We kinda already celebrated with our little weekend trip to Moab as neither one of us could get off of work this weekend. We have been married for 7 years today! Amazing how time flies. I think it is funny too how everyone keeps telling me "oh no! The 7 year itch!" I laugh because we are getting along better now then we ever have. Having our son in our lives only made us closer and I so love our little family. I know how truly blessed I am to have them both!
With that sappy ending ;) Hope everyone has a very sparked day! I need to pack my lunch for tomorrow (as a sparkbuddy reminded me... it's important to plan ahead)!
