Day 3 - Success

Another day, another notch on my slowly-loosening belt.

Food was good. Not terribly low carb, but I didn't over do it on anything & had plenty of protein. I did have one little brownie after dinner--the last of the batch from the weekend which I'd forgotten about but stumbled upon while looking for a small bite of a Hershey bar. But it's all good. Gotta have a treat once in a while, and, after all, it's been 3 days since I had anything decadent.

And I ran another 5 miles today in just over 59 minutes. I'm still not as fast as I was in October, which is a bummer, but I can totally tell it's because I'm lugging around an extra 10 pounds. Oh, and because cardiovascularly I'm not as well conditioned. And the cold air messes with my exercise-induced asthma. And, let's see, any other excuses? I kid. I'm just glad to be out there for 60 minutes moving my body.

It was so gorgeous tonight. 51 degrees when I set out. The sun was shining & I ran the whole time in the light. It didn't get truly dark until almost 5:30. Love it. Spring feels like it's on its way. Tomorrow the temp is going to be even warmer. Unfortunately I'll be taking a rest day because we have 3 client annual review appointments tomorrow, that run up until 5 p.m. And really, I need a rest after two hard running days in a row.

Maybe tomorrow would be a good day to do that Jillian Michael's DVD, ya think? I haven't had time to watch it. Heck, I haven't had time to clean my kitchen for 2 days. Life gets that way sometimes.

So it's getting late & I still have work to get done for tomorrow's meetings. I hope to catch up with you all this weekend.

Much love & thanks so much for all your support!

please go read Lynn's post and my comment there - it will answer part of your question (on my blog earlier this week). I am still pondering it.

glad your week is feeling better to you! We were up above freezing for a tiny bit yesterday!!!

Nice Job Laura!

Good job on the success. And awesome run. October was what, 40-60 degrees warmer too? The fact that you are still doing 5 miles multiple times a week, is just great.

Hope you have a restful weekend...let us know if Jillian kicks your butt.

I try to only track time or distance when running, not both. That way I don't get hung up on how fast I'm going. Mostly I just focus on time because it's easier and I don't have to measure a route.

Excellent job on the re-integration of exercise, food, etc. You're doing great. Especially in this cruddy weather. Have a great weekend and thanks for the kind words over at my blog. :-) You're the greatest!

You are SO good! Good for you.

Wouldn't that be cool if they really did rebuild me with bionic parts? Your comment cracked me up. Of course, I was thinking maybe bionic parts would help with my slowness!
