Who thought school on Saturday and Sunday was cool?

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Yup, ladies and gentlemen, I had school from 8am to 6pm this weekend, both days. They have a name for that, dont they? I think its called cruel and unusual punishment! Well, it was both cruel and unusual. There is a point to this story though, besides complaining.....I had a turning point during that torture, that I really appreciated. My problem has always been nutrition. I have always wanted to be the person found munching on snacks all the time, because I firmly believe that is the key to healthy weight management. My excused abound: I don't have time, I can't eat that often, I get full, etc. Well this weekend, I packed a days worth of healthy snacks: fruits, nuts, yogurt, etc. and ate a lite snack every few hours of my day. I felt so wonderful and refreshed and had a wonderful workout without any fatigue later on that evening.

This is an important turning point in my life, because I have a goal from here to the the end of the year - I don't remember if I had already shared this or not - it is to lose a pound a week till December 31st! Holidays and all. Adjusting my meal habits it only the beginning!

    Great job Dough. I try to eat the smaller more frequent meals throughout the day too, but it's kind of tricky.

    My knee is feeling much better today, I didn't run yesterday, I think I'll head to the running store over lunch today and see if they can offer any suggestions on my shoe and then I am going to try to run a little tonight before BL!

    Girl, I'm glad you are doing soooo good on your goal to losing a pound a week. I've always said that we could accomplish anything that we put our minds to. If you could go through med school, you could definitely beat this journey to a better you.
