I feel different

I just wanted to note today that I do feel different. My jeans feel a bit looser, I am not out of breath when I go up the stairs, and I just have a general well feeling about me. This is new. I don't think I have felt like this since I was a teenager.

Things went better yesterday. I wasn't as hungry and was in a pretty good mood most of the day. I did have an hour or two where I had no energy and had a headache. That was around the time that I passed the brownie challenge. What's that, you ask? Well, my kids were going to be home from school soon and my friend and her kids were over. I wanted to make some lowfat brownies for all of them. Oh boy! That is not a good thing to do when you are trying to eat healthy. Just the rich smell of the baking goodies was enough to drive me mad. But........ I passed!! I did not eat one crumb of those sweet, luscious treats.

This morning I did something I have never done before in my entire life. I ran for 10 minutes straight on the treadmill. I think it was about 3/4 of a mile. I walked the first two minutes than ran the next 10 minutes, then walked 2 minutes, then ran for the rest of the mile & 1/4. Wow!! I feel good. At the time I did not want to do it. You all know how I feel about running, right. I guess I will change my opinion over a period of time.


  1. Wow--I've never passed a brownie challange! Your willpower is amazing--I'll remember that next time I'm tempted by something.
