I would have been on sooner but I got back from the gym, opened the door to my home, and there was a corelle ( spelling?) plate shattered on the floor in a billion bits. I don't know if anyone has those plates but they are terribly difficult to break- I have thrown them before without making so much as a chip. Innocent cats and dog could never have had anything to do with this I'm certain. It took me quite a while to get the shards up and we'll be wearing shoes in the kitchen for some time.
I was very pleased to find out that I had the most "fitpoints" at the gym this last week. working out earns points for your "Y not be a loser team". This last week the Lime Lite Ladies ventured with our trainer, Andrew, to the free weight area of the gym. All of those old feelings came back- fat girl in the mirror having no place with these fit muscle bound hot people. Andrew reminded me that it's the "Y", "you check your attitude at the door, this place is for everyone, come on". I figured that protesting would be lame so I tried my best to do what he showed us. We'd do 15 reps and then back to the treadmill. I ran all but one interval. It was not as bad as I thought- turned out no one was really looking at us- I think that they were watching Andrew- one guy even told him what a good job he does as an instructor.
I also have made it to week 6 in my c25k 9 week program. I have completed session 2 of the 6th week and should be running the 3rd session before the end of the week.
I ran a mile on the treadmill without stopping this evening- did it on whim- I know that I've run farther than that in a session but I just wanted to "see it".
I am having a huge problem with my food. I need to get my mind right with the food- quit using food as a reward- I lost the first 20 lbs with the food tracker and really watching my eating. I am starting to slip. I am not feeling sorry for myself, just being honest.
When I am lost I pray for the next right thing to do. I feel that the next right thing to do is to get back with the food tracking and make more time for SP.
