I had originally started doing a daily update including exactly what I was eating each day … but since I already journal my intake at www.fitday.com, it all became a little overwhelming! So, I have chosen to go back to the weekly updates on Monday. But, now what to include in the “E”ating part of my format?? Recipes?? New foods I find and love?? Food goals?? I guess that will also be a work in progress!
This week, I will include food goals. I have really cut down on water these past two weeks. It started while on vacation … too hard to plot out potty breaks on road trips! So, now it is time to drown the fat again! The second one is to eat more regular meals. Somehow, I had gotten into not eating until about 3 in the afternoon. I am sure this has wrecked my metabolism for the moment!

This week, I am continuing on with the same exercise goal I had in my last weight loss post … get into running! Except, I am now going to re-define that goal …
I plan to run a 5K hosted by a local school the end of September.
In my research, I have found that it takes approxomately 6 weeks to go from “couch to 5K.” So, this will give me more than enough time to “train” for the run. There were other races that were in the 6 to 8 week range from now, but I had hoped the school event would be a little less formal for my first race. Depending on how well I do with that race … not in terms of winning or where I place, but more if I love the process … I will then train for a 10K that is in October and then find a 1/2 marathon and marathon at intervals from that time!
I really liked the couch to 5K plan I found here because it spread it out over a 9 week period … putting me closer to the date of my run. I also like that it has an outlined schedule that was easy to refer back to or even to print off.
Anyone else in for a 5K??
I guess I already covered all of my “diet” topics above. So, off topic now … since I have been unsuccessful in going from nurse to __________ (fill in the blank!), I have decided to go back to college! I have an appointment with a career counselor the first part of July to decide where I can go from the degree and various college credits that I already have. After all these years … Scary!
