Day 23

It’s amazing how quickly you get off track.  I was all gung-ho about blogging each and every day.  I miss 1 day and it’s been so hard to get back into the swing of it.

Things are going good.  I really slacked off last week when I was in Omaha.  NO DAVE IT’S NOT YOUR VAULT!!!  But, when I got back, I got on the scale and I was only up 8/10th’s of a pound.  I’m ok with that.

upped my speed again today.  Sooo close to breaking 5k in under an hour.

Day 14 – Late

Well, not much to say really.  spent all day Monday in the car, then went and had dinner with Dave, Joni, and Georgia.  But I did make it to the gym before I got on the road.

Day 13

You know what…for begin mother’s day…and all the food and desert that goes along with it, I did really good. 

I’ve been really struggling with not drinking soda on a daily basis.  I found these little 8oz cans of welch’s grape juice.  They’re carbonated, but only have like 60 calories a can.  It’s a nice low calorie/low sodium alternative that fixes my crave for something fizzy every now and then.

Day 12

Well,  due to scheduling, worship team practice being in the morning and us having my dad’s birthday party, I didn’t make it to the Gym today.  I think I’ll probably end up going tomorrow to make up for it.

Day 10

Well, today was my Friday.  Tomorrow I’ll be down by St. Louis for the day, then off to Trivia night!!!!

On a side note, I reached my highest speed yet on the treadmill….I actually broke into a full fledged jog.  Granted I only did it for like 2 minutes…I still did it!!!

Day 9 – Late

When I started this whole plan, 9 days ago, one of the things i told myself i had to do, was sleep more.  So I imposed a strict 10PM bedtime the nights before a workout (except Friday night since I can work out any time I have a free hour on Saturday).  Anyway,  I had a church meeting last night, got home at 9:45, so for my 2 faithful followers, I’m sorry for not blogging last night.  It would have forced me to break my 10PM bedtime.

Anyway, yesterday was good.  I do have to say, I’m getting use to my new routine.  One thing….I’m getting really sick of drinking nothing but water all the time.  I grabbed some subway last night for dinner and really struggled with wanting a soda.  I figured I could get a diet coke and all would be good.  I was strong!! I had iced tea….at which point I re-discovered how wonderful iced tea is.  I think after work I’m going to have to go get one of those iced tea makers.

Day 8

For some reason,  I woke up in a really good mood, and a pretty good day, and then ended the day with a really crappy attitude.  I’m not sure why.  I think the lack of caffeine is starting to play tricks on my mind……….
