CURRENT WEIGHT: 171.0
That means a .6 loss for the week! I WILL TAKE IT!!!
I've been doing pretty good this week... I've been drinking at least 80 oz of water (most of the time I have been closer to 100!), eating within my calories (for the most part) and trying to get my workouts in! I officially moved back to school this past week (for the LAST time EVER!!) so its been a little hectic with packing/unpacking and working! And, everyone wanted to see me before I left for school, so that means a lot of eating out! But, I really tried to plan my calories for the day if I knew I was going out for dinner! Workouts consisted of running, 30 DS and elliptical. Like I said, I didn't get to workout as much as I wanted to, but with work and moving, I was limited on time!
It is time to be 100% honest. Since I was a runner in high school (cross country and track), I really thought that I would be able to pick up this whole running thing a lot easier. I still have EVERY intention of running my half marathon March 17th, but I am making more realistic goals for myself. Running the whole thing at a 10 min/mile pace is not realistic. I am going to just do my best, even if that means taking little walking breaks. I will still be so PROUD of myself when I finish, because I know that I will have accomplished something that millions of people wouldn't even dare to attempt. I am going to enjoy it and have fun, instead of stressing about my pace. The longer it takes me, the more time I will have to HAVE FUN!! I am not running it to be competitive or get the best time for my age group. I am running it because I want to push myself farther than I ever thought possible! So, if I don't get a stellar time, I am going to be just fine with that! I am going to HAVE fun!! That is what it is all about anyways right? Not everything has to be a competition!!
