Week 3 of the 13 Week Learn to Run Program is Complete!!
Friday, March 26, 2010
Whew! More importantly, this also marks the third week that I've journaled every bite I've eaten and kept up with a regular workout schedule. I can't believe I've gotten up early every workday and gone to the gym first! Go me!
It was tough this morning though, cold and wet outside and I really, really didn't want to. But now that I'm done I'm glad I did it. I really want to get back to that girl I was a couple of years ago - I was running 3 miles 3 times a week and was down to a breath away from being below 200 pounds for the first time in twenty plus years.
Yes, the last time I was below 200 pounds I was in high school, and that was only briefly for my senior year. I CAN DO THIS!
I realized this morning that I'm taking it sort of like the old AA adage - one meal at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time. If I can do this until we leave for vacation at the end of June I'm hoping that it will all have turned back into good habits.
How do you all keep yourself on track for the long haul? I want to hear from you!
