Day #7 -Back on Track

I hope everyones weekends went well!

Mine did, and I even pretty much stayed OP. I’ll admit that my being OP has been a little more lax that it used to be, but I figure if I’m staying pretty close to plan for now, I’m doing LEAPS and BOUNDS better then I was, and I’m trying to improve on everything a little at a time. Nothing changes overnight.

However on a high note, I do feel like my clothes are fitting better, and are more comfortable, so even though the scale wasn’t showing anything when I spot checked (I think TOM is around the corner), I think my body is changing, and it feels great.

Little NSV this weekend. I didn’t want to run on Friday even though I had a scheduled run, since it was really windy, and I really hate running when it’s crazy windy, so I put off the run, and I ended up running on Saturday Morning instead. Well come yesterday, I didn’t feel like running again, one because I was tired from running the day before, and I knew Sundays run was longer, plus I was tired and feeling like I was getting a cold, but I ran anyways. As much as I tried to talk myself out of running, I kept saying no no I should run! So I’m hitting that point that I can’t talk myself out of it, and that’s a great thing.

And, I made two healthy recipes for the DH and I this weekend, and he liked them both, which is great. He’s pretty much your typically DH he doesn’t like me messing with his food, removing the fat, cheese and all the good stuff. But I made the Chiminchangas I told you about Friday and I make Turkey Meatloaf on Saturday and he loved them both…so score!

Also, DH has been trying to follow WW’s. It’s kinda cute to watch him. The first day he had points left over and was bragging how he wasn’t hungry and this was way easy, anyone could do it. Well by yesterday he was singing a different tune. He was saying how he just simply needed more food then this and he couldn’t live on this. The most suprising for him was we went to Max and Ermas for lunch, and I got my normal, but his normal wasn’t on their healthy menu, so he got the Caribbean chicken. Well that Chicken was 12 points, he couldn’t believe that chicken was 12 points. I told him, well you can only imagine how much your normal meal is then! So needless to say he went over his points yesterday. It’s a learning curve and he’ll get it. He only has about 15 pounds to lose, so it shouldn’t take him long, but hopefully we can clean up his eating habits in the process.

How is today going OP? Well it could be better, it could be a whole lot worse. So we’ll see how the rest of the day goes!

Running Stats for last week, 4 runs, 11.31 miles almost 2 and a half hours of activity and 987 Calories burned….go me!

Anyways, hope you guys have a great week, I’ll be back before Thanksgiving!

I was hoping to email you, but I couldn't find it, so I thought I would just comment here! I know that you're more familiar with running than I am and so my question is regarding that. When you run, how long does it take for your lungs to feel like they are burning and how do you push through it?
