I just realized it's been a while since I last blogged. My busy weeks are done for now. I did manage to survive and even enjoy myself. I got my runs in 3x week, no excuses! I ate healthy while in Florida and even in North Dakota this weekend. I am really focusing on making healthy choices. It is my body and I am in control of what I put into it.
I have been a little down because my weight isn't just falling off. But I am still on track for my goal weight in December. I feel great when I exercise. I really need to do some form of exercise everyday so that I can keep my emotions even. Otherwise, I tend to get upset/angry/depressed. Exercise really is my key to happiness.
Today I ran week three day one of c25k. 3 minutes of running non-stop. Wow. I really had shin splints after that first 3 minute run. I slowed down my second three minute run and did much better. Really stretched out afterwards too! I will not let my mind hurt me so that I stop. I can do this. Though I shouldn't have looked forward to next week with a 5 minute run...kinda nervous. But I know that the 3 minute runs will get easier by the end of this week. Looking forward to the challenge.
I also signed up to do the GG virtual 10k at the beginning of February. I am going to do the 5k with c25k program walk as fast as I can to finish to first 1/2 to see where I am timewise for my February goal: 5k <45 minutes. Then I will walk the last 1/2 of the 10k to finish it. Good to have a plan.
Speaking of plans, I gotta to to pick up my oldest daughter to take to PT.
