It's been awhile since I blogged. I have been busy with school work. February is the month the Dairy Queeens reopen for the season here. I found myself going by and getting that peanut buster parfait again and again and again.
Then I started thinking of the cost. One of those parfaits costs the same as a bag of apples. Now, it is back to the "I can't afford to eat healthy" argument. One apple will satisfy my hunger and in that bag, I'll get a lot more opportunity to have another one for a lot less calories.
No excuses! Just like the Biggest Loser theme this season, I am going to start a personal challenge with no excuses and give myself no excuse to eating junk food. Since my environment is full of temptation, I am going to start with a one week challenge.
Well, here goes....

I am doing well on my half marathin training. I went back to school and had a bout of eating whatever and whenever -- woke up and said enough of that! I managed to get through yesterday without eating sugary junk food. Also, thanks to my granddaughter (age 9) who did the no junk food challenge we started in January, I managed to not buy a bag of candy. As I was looking at a marked down package of Snickers, she told me, "You not suppose to eat that, grandma."

I am still continuing with my half marathon trainig, but the days are mixed up a bit now that I am starting school. Plus it is cold here in MN and so it back to the gym. Treadmill running is so boring.
A lot of people say running on a treadmill is easier than running outside, but I find the opposite to be true. I have much slower times on the treadmill, even slower than when I run on the sandy, gravel roads near where I live. I think a lot of it because I have this fear of being distracted on the treadmill and missing my step and well, you know what may happen.
School work is taking a lot of my time. Accounting class and Business Math. My brain is getting weekly workouts.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
