Bleepity, bleep, bleep. (Advice for half-marathon running and yoga teaching needed!)

Yeah, bleepity bleep bleep, I gained a pound this week! Who does that right after the New Year? Apparently me! I am now 12 pounds heavier than my lowest weight in September and I am not happy about it. Grrr.
The good: I’m back on the workout wagon. Yoga twice this week already, a spin class, a couple of walks and more planned. I’m well on my way to getting my 500 minutes this week! It certainly feels good to be back in action.
The bad: I need to get the food under control.
The ugly: I’ve been ravenous right around 3pm and I want to gnaw my arm off. I have the tools – now to use them! I am thankful that I have a little bit of a routine going again – less free time and less of boyfriend’s mom’s cooking! The amount of sodium that I’ve been eating is ridiculous! It’s funny but I haven’t tracked my food in so long that I haven’t really noticed an increase – but now I’m eating almost three times as much sodium as I was this summer!
I know what to do though. More veggies. A lot more! More fruit. And more lean protein. Today I’m throwing a protein bar in my bag for my afternoon snack attack…
I am also ripping off the bandaid, throwing my fears out the door and signing up for yoga teacher training which starts on February 13th. I signed up for a half marathon on May 19th. I’m a little scared about that one since the farthest I’ve run is probably 4 miles! Training starts Monday! Eek.
Yoga teacher training tips???? Are you glad you did it or was it a waste of money?
I will get there. And I will be a crazy (in a good way) half-marathon-running-certifie
