It ran me over as it passed me by! Last week I started my no sugar no flour...well between Friday and Sunday night I cheated, cheated, cheated! YUK. I don't know why I did it either. I just did.
So, after rationalizing and all that I figured it is my biggest flaw, and I decided to move on. I was talking to a friend at a birthday party this weekend and she said that she doesn't even put sweets in her mouth, because once she does, she can't stop. That is part of my problem too, I figure, well, I already cheated...so I might as well enjoy it. So what I need to figure out now is how to stay away from it to begin with!
On another note...as you read last week, I ran 2 miles around the lake. About a month ago I tried running, but I'd run a little then walk, run a little then walk. Last week I ran for almost 2 straight miles without walking. So I got all cocky and brave and signed up for the Race for the Cure 5k this past Sunday. I woke up, got there, looked for a few people I knew among the thousands and ran, alone. I at first had a goal not to be the last to cross, but as I started running, I realized that I am actually passing people. I quickly changed my goal to finish running, without walking. I did it! I did it in 32 minutes! a 10+ minute mile is not much to write home about, but it is much better than I thought I'd do. When I was in the Army my best time was 13.50 minutes for 2 miles. I am not even close and may never be, but my life was different, and I was 23! ;o) I know I can do it now! :O)
So, back to eating healthy. Gary and I chatted last night about eating healthy and not cheating. So I hope he can help me a bit more again.
Still holding strong at 20.2 pounds lost. Haven't lost a pound in a long time. Looking forward to that happening!
