It was just a few days ago that I was saying how I'm, finally, willing and able to make good food choices, but, I think, I was a little too sure of myself, a little too soon, because I, totally, strayed away from my new healthy ways while we were away from home this weekend. I knew I wouldn't be perfect this weekend, but I was worse than I thought I would be. I felt that old urge to devour all things bad, and I gave in to that urge alot! We got home this afternoon, and I feel more secure here at home, but we're leaving again, first thing in the morning, for our four day trip to St. Louis, and I can't continue my junk food eating frenzy for the next four days, so I need to boost my willpower back up! I can do it, I can do it, I can do it! It's just food, it's just food, it's just food!!
I attended my first Weight Watchers last Wednesday, but with leaving for the homeschool conference Thursday, and just getting back today, I haven't had time to really go through the program to figure out the point values for foods, and with leaving tomorrow again....well, I'm just not going to be able to, completely, start the program until I'm home from St. Louis, but I'll do the best I can while I'm gone. I know what healthy foods I should be eating, in general, so I'm going to stick with that, and that should keep me in my points range.
It's almost time for me to post progress pictures....well, I hope there will be noticeable progress! I'll be posting the pics on Friday, so we'll see!
I finished Week 3 of my 5K training tonight. I am so exhausted from the conference, so I thought it was going to be a brutal 28 min. workout, but it wasn't bad, and that was a relief!! I'm going to start Week 4 of my 5K training tomorrow morning, before I leave for St. Louis. I, normally, don't do two days in a row, but with going on my trip I'm having to do things a little different this week. So, Week 4 training will be Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday. The training for tomorrow is a total of 30 min., which will include running for 3 straight minutes - twice!, AND running for 5 straight minutes - twice!! So, 16 minutes total of running! I'm a little worried about getting through it, but I WILL do it! And this will be the workout for Wednesday and Friday, too. Wish me luck!
