If you don't have it, I would suggest downloading it. It keeps track via GPS the distance you go, the current pace you are running, and the average pace you have ran. It has different works out if you want that too, but I like to use it to watch my pace. I have learned that your pace can fluctuate WILDLY if you are not paying attention. The app. is beneficial to me by keeping me challenged and my heart rate pumping.
The fiance and I just got back from a jog around the block. I love all the leaves in Michigan during fall. It is so beautiful. The weather is absolutely perfect to be outdoors. I'm not sure about the whole "runners high" thing people talk about, I am positive I haven't experienced that yet...but I definitely feel some good endorphins pumping around my body.
Oh and good news: When I stepped on the scale today I was 2lbs down from my last weigh in!

Well apparently my sinus trouble is actually a migraine. Or at least that's the new flavor of the week diagnosis.
Any ways, got an injection of immitrex and my head doesn't feel like it is going to explode.
Now I can just barely keep my eyes open.
I am feeling somewhat depressed because this will be day two of no exercise.
Also, today was work potluck day (worst of all: italian food) and I ate an ENORMOUS amount of food. So much so, I stopped bothering to track it because it was that ridiculous. I've gotta come up with a better plan on potluck days (luckily they aren't THAT often).
I'm going to keep trying, but I feel like a definite failure right now.

All my life I've had bad allergies.
I think I'm at the point where I need to get an x-ray of my sinus cavities. I constantly have sinus headaches, and its getting more frequent . And most days they are untouchable.
Last year I was falling downstairs...I went to an allergist and got different medication.
This year I'm taking all the medication, PLUS taking a lot of ibuprofen when my headaches flare up...and now the meds aren't even touching the pain.
As I sit here, I am contemplating a jack hammer to the face (I'm joking) because it would probably distract me from the pain.
My nose is running but the pressure isn't being relieved.
Its hard to motivate myself to get on the treadmill when all I want to do is throw up.

I stepped on the scale today and found out I only lost .5lbs this week. I was shooting for at least 1lb. I was disappointed at first. I felt that the number on the scale should reflect a higher loss.
Then I got myself together and decided to be real with myself and reflect upon last week:
1) I was either in the upper range of my calorie goal or over all last week.
2) I went for a walk every day.
In conclusion: Although I was successful in achieving having physical activity incorporated into my daily routine...I have room to improve when it comes to the eating department.
Any ways, I decided to shake off my disappointment and spend today focused on my goals. I made some sparkpeople receipes, enrolled in the sparkcoach program, and now I am blogging my little heart though.
I consider myself succesful already. Now its just time to work on the numbers....
