Yesterday I questioned if it was really possible that I lost 3 lbs. I weighed this morning (since Wednesday is my official day) and I really have lost 3 lbs.. So even after my terrible weekend of snacking, I lost3 lbs. and am on my way to goal - 3 more lbs.!
2 days of "low carb" eating hasn't been too bad. I found myself getting hungry a few times, so I would drink water. I also found my self getting really thirsty, so I would drink water. I already drink a lot of water, so my bathroom visits have increased (if that's even possible!).
DD#3 and I went running yesterday. I don't want to "squash her enthusiasm", but she was really annoying to run with! She's kind of a "goof" (she's 12). She started out running goofy (kind of flapping her arms and legs) and running ahead of me and then running next to me and commenting on "how slow I am". We decided to do a 5 week 5K program and be ready to run the 5K at our church on 5/18. Last night it was 7 min. run/1 min. walk (3 times). She stopped being goofy after the 2nd time and then started to get whinny. She was getting tired! I tried to "coach" her on her running form and to not waste so much energy talking and goofing off, but she didn't really want to listen to me. Both DD#1 and DD#3 don't like to be "coached".
Anyway, she did finish and I told her I was proud and she did good. While walking back to the car off the greenway, we spotted a huge snake on the sidewalk. I didn't examine it too close, but DD#3 said it wasn't poisonous - but I hate any kind of snake!!
According to our running schedule, today is a "rest day" and we're planning to run again on Thursday and cross train on Friday (ride bikes). I would like to run tonight with DH. DD#1 has work, DD#2 has basketball (if she feels up to it - she went to school, but was still feeling kind of bad) and DD#3 has youth group. Hopefully we can get in a run between all of that.
So my April goals look pretty good:
Loose 3 lbs. - already done!
Increase 5K distance - working on it!
Strength Training - meh! not so good - 2 out 3 ain't bad!
