10 pounds down, four weeks completed of the Couch to 5k. I'm on Week 5 Day 1B (B is because I am repeating it again :P)
The running is hard, and I am relieved on days that I go to the gym, but do something else, but I do like the running.
This week is (obviously) Thanksgiving. I need to alter my habits to fit in with Turkey Day, but this time is more difficult. In the past when I have dieted, I just simply didn't really diet on days like this. However, I'm not dieting this time; I have been changing my attitude towards food and exercise instead. So, I need to work out, but at the same time, I don't want to hear the criticism from family. Ugh what a drag, huh? That means getting up at the crack of dawn... or before the crack of dawn really... to run to my gym before it closes and before I make the long trek home.
Not done yet. Now I've got to run outside on Saturday too, since they live nowhere near a gym. My gym has a branch up that way, but like everything in my hometown, it is over a half an hour away. Ugh. I want to run outside, but my boyfriend is my workout buddy, and I know he's not going to be happy. Last time I said we were going to run outside while away from home, he conveniently forget his sneakers... lol. Oh well, getting there...
I'm excited and nervous to run outside... though that kind of goes with my holiday theme: excited and nervous. I'm excited to see family always, but I get stressed out because the holidays are difficult, time crunching, hair pulling... I feel like I'm being quartered by family members pulling me in each direction every time I'm in! lol
Wish me luck!

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday!

    Thanks! I couldn't go by myself because I was in an unfamiliar area last time, and I wasn't comfortable going on my own. This time, I let him know that I'm going with or without him! :) I hope it is with him, because I'm not really good at motivating myself by myself, but there's always a first time!

    Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Double check your partner so he has everything! Or if he forgets, don't let it derail YOU!
