I have managed to stay off the scale. :) But now I am afraid to get on the scale on February 1st. I am doing great sticking with my program. Well, I fell off the wagon on Friday. I went over my calorie allowance by almost 500! But Saturday I was right back on track with the program. And I feel great today. I am really beginning to feel good about what I am doing. I am working hard to eat right. I am meeting my exercise goals. Actually, I am having fun meeting my exercise goals.
I just finished week 3 of couch to 5k. I always love day 3 of each week. Days 1 and 2 are so hard that I am always negotiating with myself to skip intervals. I never do follow through. I run all of my intervals. But this week, when I hit day 3 I never even thought to skip an interval. I thought about doing the long run first and then the short run. But decided the program works so who am I to try to make it better? But more than that, I smiled during each of my runs. Not once did I want to stop running. Can it be? Can I really be turning into a runner?
Well, I wouldn't go that far. Ask me if I like running and I will tell you I hate every minute of it...but that's not quite true any more. So, I can't wait to see how this program plays out for me. Will I be a runner after 9 weeks? I can't wait to find out!
