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.
