Shaw <BR> Wed, 24 Dec 2014 11:48:27 EST Yesterday and today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5828419 Bleh Sat, 6 Dec 2014 01:48:05 EST December 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5827285 Drank my water and worked on the freggies. Fell short on the vegetables, though. I didn't have any salad supplies in the house so I had to "settle" for tomato vegetable soup. Fruit was a banana and grapes. Took my iron supplement and, just in case, 2 calcium w/vitamin D chews. Came away with a NEGATIVE 19 CICO. <BR> <BR> Workout was a run: 4x400m hill repeats with a 1.6 km warm up and cool down. <BR> Been picking at my to do list the past couple days.

Turns out, it's about -25.6 And we have a snowfall warning. I stayed in except to take Logan to his work/school program. I regretted that. White out conditions. No real traction. Dang stupid drivers without lights on. FFS! <BR> <BR> ANYway, today is my rest day anyway. I've been looking into at-home exercise programs and "diet bet" sites. They mostly start after January 1.

But.... <BR> <BR> I *think* I'm back. I've been super struggling lately, trying to keep all the balls in the air and maintain some sort of normalcy. It worked right up until wedding weekend when I just gave up. I stepped on the scales this morning and I'm 7 pounds above my maintenance weight. Now THAT'S a wake up call. So here's my plan for the week.... <BR> Track everything I eat. If I can't track it, I'm not eating it. ...

How long have you been running and what brought you to it? <BR> <BR> Ten years ago, I wasn’t a runner. I was a mother of two who needed a way to get active, lose weight and make new friends. Running wasn’t even on my radar and, as I think back, I’m not even sure how I ended up staring at the shoe wall in Kensington and purchasing my first pair of Nikes. (and a jacket, two shirts, three pairs of socks, a water belt .....) What I do know is that I came back in from my first...

We even had a guest list made. These past couple weeks, we've been talking more about it and decided we could make it happen during my school's fall break. <em>531</em> <BR> <BR> The easiest decision, so far, was the date.
