I did it! It was a run walk but I finished it in less than a 15 min. mile. I used to die at 2 miles at a 15+ minute pace and I did 3.16 in 46 minutes! It felt good to me for many reasons.
A. I didn't die.
B. I was pretty consistent throughout. I did slow down a bit in the last mile as far as how often I was running but I increased the walking pace in between the runs.
C. I now know that I can build up to a half marathon.
D. I just feel stronger.
Running in short bursts, into a building, with my kids, etc. used to kill me. Now, not a problem. I only am up to 2 min at a clip running - usually 2 min run/2 min walk but it is better than the 1/3 I used to do at a slower pace.
By the way, I thought I ate a lot today but I actually was SHORT on my calories today too. I HAD to eat something. Amazing.
Have a good week. Happy Monday to you all!

Holy cow. Didn't seem like I ate that much but what I did was "expensive!" The kids had friends over last night and I made them belgian waffles. Yes, I had one (and a half later too...) Then I was pretty good for lunch but I just had a bunch of mixed nuts and some chips. The salt craving is doing me in today. I am now only 100 points from my total calories for the day and it is only 3:00... yikes!
It just goes to show, when I am tired and there is bad stuff accessible, I have no will power!
One thing I can say about today is that it is the first day I have had like this in a while. I have been tracking my food religiously and the scale has been quite positive for me. So, I am not going to let this day get to me and I will not let it get away from me anymore. I do thank SparkPeople for having the trackers to keep a person honest and on track. I used to get to a point and say "eh, I am close enough to the end of the day - done tracking..." That obviously didn't work. As of the last few weeks I have been very careful in tracking EVERYTHING! (Even the bad stuff like today!)
Tonight is another night, tomorrow is another day and I will be better!
No sleepovers in sight for the next few weeks anyway!
Have a good week!

I have been trying for MONTHS to get down past the next "0" on the scale, only to have "Aunt Martha" (or Flo or whatever you want to call it ) show up, or the holidays or an exam or whatever...... Well, I finally did it this week! I am so excited about it! Unfortunately, I had to eat fast food tonight in route and I discovered I really don't like the food at the place I went to. It used to be my first choice. I am really going to imagine all the fast food places tasting like that. Maybe that will work some too.
But, I passed that "0" mark on the scale! That is a good thing!
Now, on to the next "0"!
