On Sunday, I will be completing my 4th 5K this year. I am so stoked that I have stuck to the resolution, even though my friends haven't. I had about 4 friends that were supposed to do these with me, but I have been at most of them by myself. So, I think that is something to be proud of! I only have 8 more to go for the year!
I have been all over with my eating habits. I have allowed my stress and procrastination to get the best of me. That cannot happen anymore. Today I will start anew. I am within my calorie range and do not need to eat anything else. In fact, I am not hungry. I do need to drink some h2o though. I will let you know how it goes this weekend. My mom is joining me this time, how nice huh?
I leave for Vegas tomorrow for work and really don't want to have to go through with all the crazy food. If I can get it to just one dining out experience, that would be wonderful!

I suppose I really need to realize that I am going to have relapses. This weekend was a not the best choices weekend. I felt quite a bit of stress, feel bloated (that TOM), and have sugar cravings like you would not believe!
I did much better today, was about 2000 calories. That is not very good, but based upon what I have done over the last few days, it is wonderful! I need to look at the positive. Tomorrow I will aim for 1500-1600 calories. By Friday, I hope to be averaging about 1300-1500 again.
I have to remember....THIS IS A PROCESS! I will learn from my setbacks. I need to give in to my cravings if it is something I really want. Otherwise, I will eat other things as substitutions and overeat when I could have just had that one chocolate chip cookie. It would have been less calories than what I ended up consuming.
Live and Learn, right? Right!

I came down with this bogus cold/flu thing this weekend and spent most of my time laying down in bed. I thought it was just allergy, but then I started getting the fever feeling and the achy (sp?) body. I have been taking medicine and I feel a little better, but still not up to par. I can't be sick, I don't have sick days. So, I am just going to work through it and plow on.
Our weather in So. California has been pretty fickle lately and I thought that might have something to do with it. We were in a heat wave and then next few days brought 2 tornadoes and hail. Go figure! Don't you hate when you are under the weather???

I have completed the third of my twelve 5k's today. Although, today's run/walk was FOUR miles, so a little more than a 5K. I was so excited! I actually finished and I came in at 1:01:21! That is amazing to me. In 2006, I did the Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving Day. My time was 59 minutes. That means that my time was only a 2 minute difference and I did an EXTRA MILE! Can you tell that I am excited!
It feels great and I even ran quite a bit. I want to start running and I can if I do a little at a time. I learned today that my breathing is the key. I usually let myself get winded easily, but I was able to control that a little and keep running. In fact, I did a whole Dave Matthews song all running!
I just wanted to share! I know I will be really sore tomorrow. Oh well, it is a good sore!
