Gym last night. Started week 2 of Couch to 5k. It wasn't as bad as I thought. Toward the end I had to slow my pace down. But I was able to run for 90 seconds. I remember when I couldn't run for 30 seconds. So that makes me happy.

I have to look at the small picture sometimes. A few weeks ago I couldn't do something and now I can. It's what keeps me motivated. I don't want to think about how many pounds I need to lose or how long it will take. I figure if I focus on the fitness goals. Running a mile continuously and running a 5k. It will keep me from losing track. Oh and actually going to the gym more than once a week. THAT really helps.

I have been reading PastaQueen . While I don't follow any particular diet plan it is entertainng to read some misshaps and some experiments, (monthly, she tries new fruit/veggie) I don't know if anyone reads this but it helps me to "talk" about it. Luckily my gym buddies are really gerat about listening!

I guess I should be working now. What fun

bad weekend

I tried to start week 2 of Counch to 5 k. Ended up with a shooting pain in my shin. Last time that happened, I needed better shoes. After buying better shoes. (sports store next to gym) I didn't end up at gym this weekend. Got home from gym Friday night and ate. I was starving. Ate more than normal. In fact I ate a lot on saturday as well. I don't know what's up with that. but it happens.

This weekend I did nothing. No housework no gym. I just had a lazy weekend. I know that isn't good for what I want for my goals. But I couldn't get motivated. Not sure if its the weather. Snowed this weekend. (although not the first snow of the season. That happened in October when I was in California)

I need to head to the laundromat tonight. No more clean clothes. As I will soon be traveling again for work (waiting on confirmation of dates) I want to get a head start on what I will pack . Last time I brought too many clothes I didn't wear. I have a few things needing sewing.

Just talking to someone from the area I will be in. Weather is inconsistent. Looks like I will have to bring lots of long sleeves. Who knows what weather will be like.
