Week 4: adventures in running

First of all, thank you so much for all of your support after my last post. You really lifted my spirits and made me feel like I can do this. It's hard to put yourself out there like that, you know? But I couldn't do it without all of the support I get here. Thank you again.:-)

Secondly, as of this morning, I completed my eleventh run! I am on Week 4 of my running program. I actually ran for five minutes straight this morning. It was painful, and I hated every second. But the love is in the high that I get when I'm cooling down and walking home. I feel so accomplished.

I've also been making really good decisions in my eating. I've cut out all the snacking and grazing when I come home from work, and I attack the fruit drawer instead. I've told myself that there are no limits on fruits and veggies!

As for exercise: it's working for me this time, because I am up at the crack of dawn. There are no excuses about being tired from the day, or having to work late. And the streets are so serene and peaceful. I will admit, it's hard to come home, shower, get two kids ready for daycare, get everyone fed (plus myself all dressed up for work), and then get out the door in one piece. It's exhausting just writing about it. But I'm doing this for me.

Oddly enough, I don't have an urge to jump on the scale to see if my changes are working. I mean, I know it's important. But I feel so good right now. Isn't that enough?

Congrats on the running. No need to jump on the scale, feeling good is more important than any number. Keep up the good work.
