Half Marathon training....

So I decided to actually start training and run a 1/2 marathon this year! I'm excited about the new training program, and actually loving it. I'm proud to report that on Sunday (2/22) I ran my first 5 miles...and OUTSIDE! I bought some new shoes, and some cold weather gear, and with a little push from my hubby... I went out and DID it! SO proud of myself!!

And then, I splurge and eat like crap. It's true. I can't tell you why I would sabotage myself this way, because I really want to lose the weight.

I guess the key is that I keep getting up from the fall and trying again. If I keep doing that, eventually I will succeed. Shoot, I already have. I've come a long way...and I'm STILL on the right path :)

Tomorrow is weigh day...and I admit of being nervous. Maybe just maybe I will see a maintain from last weeks' nasty gain...or better yet see a loss. Whatever it tells me, I MUST continue with the journey and get to where I need to be!!!!

Mandie - I swear I eat more on days I run. My body needs the fuel I guess?? Or my body THINKS it needs the fuel. We have to get into the mindset that fuel is good on those days we run but it needs to be fruits, veggies, something HEALTHY. Good luck with the 1/2 training!!!
