C25K and March Goals

Friday, March 01, 2013

Just completed C25K W2D3. I'm all flush-faced and warm! I did all the runs at 4.5! However, I did not do the last run...I walked it instead. So, I am going to repeat W2D3 on Monday. I feel that I need to be able to run all the runs at 4.5 before I am really ready to move on. I just couldn't convince myself to run that last run today. I pushed myself through the second to last run by doing positive affirmations. I went through the alphabet and did an affirmation for each got me through...distracted me from those "I want to stop" thoughts.

I ate in range today. At the end of the day, I didn't have a lot of calories left, so I opted for Subway for supper which is one of my easiest low-calorie meals. When we got there, I was surprised that "my" sandwich is the $3 6-inch sub for March! Yay! I like the Grilled chicken sandwich...I don't add any cheese...I do get it toasted...and I add lettuce, tomato, pickles, and black olives. It's only 310 calories. Then I got the apple slices...another 35 calories. That's a 345 calorie meal. Yay!

I need to set some goals for March. I want to keep progressing with the C25K program. I want to start an ST program. I want to eat in range as many days as possible. I want to see some weight loss and get into the lower end of the 180's. I want to continue my binge-free streak. Hmmm...yep, that'll do for March goals, I think.

DD is still pregnant! She was due today and is hopeful to go into labor this weekend and deliver my granddaughter. We're excited! I have a trip planned in a couple of weeks to go visit them. Can't wait to hold that little bundle of joy! (And I can't wait to find our her name! They are keeping it a secret until she arrives!)

Hope you all had a great week and have a great weekend ahead! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Good March goals, Cathy! emoticon on doing your run! Even though you walked near the end, you finished, and that is what counts! Good for you for not giving in!

I like Subway, too. If you are careful, you can have a wholesome sandwich for 500 calories or under. Jared lost how much weight - quite a bit. I love grilled chicken sandwiches.

Hope your new little bundle fo joy arrives soon, and I know you are probably already packed and ready to go! emoticon emoticon

Keep us posted on the grandbaby! How exciting! We told everyone our names, but we just didn't know what the gender would be! That was the exciting part for us :)

Have a wonderful weekend Cathy!!
