happy happy happy

Monday, April 22, 2013

So this morning I am happy happy happy (as Si would say from Duck Dynasty)! I did my last run this morning for the 5K challenge. It was a 5 week long challenge of run/walking 3 times a week. I did not hit my goal time but I did complete it and that it itself is rewarding. My scale my not always reflect my efforts but I feel great from doing it. Don't get me wrong, my rear is a little sore from the run, but it is a good kinda sore. The kind that reminds you that you are no longer a couch potato. ha ha!

Last week I started low carbs and I did great 5 out of 7 days. Friday I caved as we had a PTA function at school with NO healthy options and I had to be there right after work to help set it up. So needless to say the hot dog and icecream I had did not help the no carb cause. Also Sundays we travel to families and I am at the mercy when it comes to eating. I did okay but I did have Macaroni and cheese. I think it was the best I have ever eatten. I think going low carbs makes you truly appreciate one when you eat it. ha ha! Today I am back to track. This morning was low carb yogurt and fruit, lunch is a salad and dinner is broiled flounder along with alot of fruits and veggies today.

My goal this week is to get into the 180's by Friday. So wish me luck!

    Congrats on your 5k!!! The first and only time I attempted a 5k I finished 5 minutes better than I thought I would. I was elated. I will probably try another this year seeing as my knee problems have cleared up for the most part. However, I'm a carb addict and would never be strong enough to do a low carb diet so...You go girl!
