I made my goal again this week. I may need to re-evaluate my goals. But I have increased my mileage this week along with increasing my speed. So I am very pleased on my progress.
A funny story: K-Love was giving away tickets to travel to Nashville to run the 1/2 marathon in Nashville with Toby Mac. I have sworn off anything over a 5k right now, just until I complete my first one. But I did call in several times to win those tickets because Evan LOVES his Toby Mac! So for the love of my son, I probably would have trained a little harder so that I could participate in that and that Evan could have met Toby! But unfortunately for Evan, I didn't win any tickets! Besides I could have hung out with Christine too. Right there is enough to train for an 1/2 marathon - Ha!
I stuck to my plan this week. I can honestly say that I did extremely well watching what I ate and making healthy choices! But on Friday, a group of friends met up at Steak N Shake and I gorged. Because I LOVE their Frisco Melt with Cheese Fries. I admit it - I.ATE.ALL.OF.IT plus a milkshake and it was good :-)! And then on Saturday we were coming home from a birthday party and were just hungry and I didn't feel like making anything. So we stopped and picked up a $5 pizza from Little Ceasars. And I enjoyed too much of it :-)! Ha ha! But you know what - I enjoyed it. I don't feel too guilty because it has become a rarity that I eat out!
I have lost a total of 7.4 pounds since the start of my choice to become healthier! I am okay with that!
Your turn! Let me know how you are doing on your "healthy" goals! I want to know what things are working well with you and what things aren't! Let's do this together!
