Tuesday October 9, 2012

When my alarm went off at 4:30am, the last thing I wanted to do was to get up, have a cup of coffee, get dressed, lace up my running shoes and go for a run. But I did.

I found myself praying as I ran and just asking God to encourage my heart. I am feeling unmotivated and blah this week. I know this will pass but it sucks while it's this way!

So, I interval ran 3.6 miles with an average pace of 13.02 min/mile. There was not one of those moments during the run when I realized how great I felt. I just put one foot in front of the other ...over and over and over. And when I was done I was glad. Glad that I was done and glad that I had chosen to get up and do it when I didn't feel like it.

My eating is still just okay. It could be better and it could be a lot worse. I'm glad I threw the chocolate dipped shortbread cookies in the trash! It helps that I don't have junk in the house......well, if I don't count the Klondike bars my husband put in the freezer...sigh. I saw them last night. I'm pretending that they aren't there.

Hi Vickie! just thought I would say hello. I love your food picture collages, those are cool. I have been thinking about getting a camera myself so I can post a few pictures of my meals. Have a great day!

The days where everything is just o.k nothing special are the hardest ones to get through. You did great. You got your run in and your eating was good. That makes a great day in my books :)
