Okay here is what I have been able to accomplish this week with running.
Monday - ran 4 miles
Wednesday - ran 5 miles
Thursday - ran 2 miles
The counting points has not been going well for me. I will be honest. I do GREAT for the first half of the day and then get sooo hungry at night that I just throw it all out the window. I am not giving up or giving in. I just need to try harder. Plus, I am an emotional eater and we have been having some challenges with some of our children lately. I just go in my office and have stuff I shouldn't be eating.
What am I going to do about all of this??? Well, my husband and I have decided that we are going to run our next marathon in April in Louisville, Kentucky. If you live near there and would like to come and cheer us on we would love that!!! My training starts officially on Monday with a long run the following Saturday. My back is still sore but much better. Hopefully the running won't make it worse. After I ran 5 miles this week my back felt great by that night.
I went to weight watchers this week to weigh in and I was at 129.2. My lifetime goal is 125 so I was not lifetime this week. I will work on that for next week.
So, for today I have had 1 FiberOne Chocolate bar for 2 points. I am going to drink a lot of water. Have a big salad with a sandwich for lunch. Fruit & veggies for snacks, and a dinner of a frozen meal. I can do this!!!
My point goal for each day before working out is 20 points. The more I run, the more points I get.
