So Far, So Good

Well, I dedicated myself to getting back on track this week and so far, so good. I did perfect on Sunday, which is a key day of the week for me. I have a hard time most Sundays going from splurge mode to on-track mode. I did it this week. Very proud of myself. I did the Wii Active and my bike, so I got exercise in, water, and on-points. :-)

Yesterday was a little rough. Not much, but I definately wanted more food than I should have. LOL! I did do the Wii Active again and ran at the park. Had the best time ever at Shelley for 1 mile - 13:27, which is 31 seconds faster than my fastest time there. Woohoo! Very proud of that. But, by the end of the day, I wanted more food. I don't know if it's because I exercised early in the day, when I normally do it at night or what. Eh. I went over by 1 point, but still had exercise points accumulated.

Today, great! I've been great on food, drank all my water before 5:00 p.m. and did an hour of cardio - Wii Fit, bike, and arm weights. I'm very proud of myself today. I have a couple points left and I may grab something salty. That's what I'm in the move for, so with the extra points, why not?

So far, so good. Just three more days to go!


  1. Good for you!
    For me, Sunday's 3 mile run was great, today the last 0.5 miles DRAGGED, I literally could have walked faster than I ran but I made myself finish. All I know is that some days are better than others, if we don't get discouraged by the bad days, we will succeed!

  2. I tried this trick yesterday and I think that's how I got a faster time. I focused on something coming up on the path - a tree, a bench, a light pole - and said just get there. My concentration was more on getting to that point than it was on my running. I think that's what sped me up honestly, I was trying to get to whatever point I set for myself as quickly as I could. *shrug* I'm going to try that strategy again when I go for my next run. See what happens. That could be the trick for me to speed up.

    Hey, you ran that last .5 miles though. That's a positive. There have been days when I've walked up the hill at the park because I just couldn't do it. You ran it though. Great job!
