First off, a little update. I have not been very sparky lately. I was totally lovin' my new eating plan- cutting sugar and flour out of my diet. Then a few days ago as I was about to make my dinner, I just got sick to my stomach thinking about salads, beans, chicken breast, etc.... SO I had what the rest of the family was having and then I became very nauseous with a sour stomach for the next 2 days. I wasn't sure if it was because I suddenly started back with the flour and sugar or if I actually had a bug.... My son had the same type of bug last week, so I don't know.
Anyways, I have not exercised at all this week. And I have been eating poorly. The funny thing is--- Iam not freaking out about it. After all this time, I have come to accept that I am going to have moments like these... days where I give into the cravings and eat what I want, then I just have to turn it back around and get back to healthy eating and exercising and I am good.
That day is coming... Saturday I am running a 5K (The Holiday Hustle) with my 2 boys. It will be interesting to see how I do (not having run for a week). I HAVE to eat healthy tomorrow to get all of the junky junk out of my system by Saturday morning or I will not do well. THat is going to be my motivation for tomorrow.
I was wrapping my Christmas present today.... a Garmin Forerunner 305. Basicly it's a watch that will track your speed and distance. I am so excited to use it!!!! DH was a ittle peeved that I ordered it myself--- and that is kind of spoiling the excitement of it for me.... But anyways, as I was wrapping it, I was getting that itch to start running and I can't wait to get out and use it.
SO that leads to this WILD idea I have. Every year in January our city hosts a half and a full marathon on a "beautiful" trail in the woods. I have never been on the trail and don't really know where it is even at. I had been tossing around the idea of setting a goal to run it in 2012. Well, the thought occurred to me today... why not sign up and WALK the half marathon in 2011???? There is nothing wrong with that, RIGHT? Nothing says you HAVE to run! It will get me familiar with the trail and I can go back and maybe train there for the race in 2012.... Hmmm.... It's got me thinking!!!! Do I have the courage????
