Still Running....In The Right Direction!

Hello, Hello! I hope to get my schedule nailed down and moving a little slower. However, for right now, I will blog when I can catch a few minutes on a computer!

I am still moving in the right direction. Eating well. For instance, today's eats:

Breakfast: Greek Yogurt, Banana, Blueberry, and Strawberry Shredded Wheat Cereal
Lunch: A large salad with a 1/2 cup of soup.
Snack: 1/2 Apple and Peanut Butter
Dinner: Salmon, Spinach w/ Tomatoes and string cheese.
Desert: 1/4ish cup of peppermint ice cream and a mini pumpkin chocolate chip cookie.

All in all, I am feeling great. I mentioned a few posts back that I am not weighing myself in October and I have stuck to it. The number on the scale doesn't define me!

The other day, Love and I were talking and I asked him, "Honey, does it look like I am gaining weight?" His response, "No, but you don't look as fit as you did before!" He didn't say it in a  hurtful way, he was being honest and that is exactly what I needed to kick my butt into gear. Since that conversation, I realized that I don't just want to eat right, I want to exercise right as well. I want my body to reflect fitness and athleticism.

Here is the plan that I have been following for 2 weeks now:
  • Proper portions of "good for you" foods.
  • No coffee or soda during the week. No soda period!
  • Gym 5-6 days a week. I have been waking up at 4:45AM the past few days.
  • Small desert portions....because I love sweets and if I resist, I will binge. So, small portions it is! :)
  • Run the half marathon next weekend. Uh...I really haven't trained properly, but I am going to run/walk and just do my best :) 

What are the goals you are focusing on for your journey? Losing weight? Being Thin? Aquiring Fitness?

Ooo I should not weigh myself for a month, I don't know if I could do it though. I should start small and try for a week. I guess I'm a bit neurotic about it :/

I like your plan with sweets. I'm the same way - if I try and restrict myself, it just ends badly.

My goals are just to keep running and really focus on eating healthier!
