I wasn't feeling well yesterday - kinda like something was trying to get me sick, but I didn't let it! I didn't make it to the gym, but got lots of rest and drank lots of water.
Today is Day 12 with NO alcohol! It really hasn't been that difficult... well, except on Thursday at bowling! I may even have a glass of wine (GOOD wine) at Easter dinner.
After my weigh-in tonight and only being down 1/2 a #, it's a bit disappointing to have given up something with nothing in return (weight loss), but on the other hand, that is also my fault for not getting to the gym since last Tuesday. So, how can I expect any change when I haven't done anything to cause the change???? Live and learn... I GOTTA get to the gym EVERYDAY!! That's the bottom line!!
Tonight I walked 1.25 miles AND I JOGGED .25 miles at the 1/2 mile point. I jogged the entire .25 in one set! Soooo proud of me!! It was hard, but I just kept going as I told myself I was going to do .25 in a jog. So, now, I'll add another .25 within my routine soon.
I'm so glad I am still motivated and don't have that feeling of dread. YAY Me!

    Glad you didn't get sick! Good for you incorporating the running. I have been doing the same thing, trying to get from walking to running and following this Run Your Butt Off (RYBO) program. It is amazing how many more calories you burn off running than walking. Now I have a routine where I walk 2.5 min, run 5 min for 30-45 minutes and hoping to get to the point where I run the whole time. Also, you are down a 1/2 lb, you didn't gain - so do not beat yourself up. Just focus on getting to the gym more or get out there and walk/run - you can do this!
