Just when I think I have my eating down to a science. This week happens, with a lot of stress and long hours at work. Being tired and stress are the two reasons I over eat/ binge . I set up some rules for myself when I started WW. No take out, no snacks at the corner store, no fast food except for subway and no eating at work unless it was a salad or rice and chicken( for those of you who don't know I work at a restaurant). I broke two of these rules after three months. I had takeout and I went to McDonald :(. I can feel my old habits creeping back. A wise friend told me ( hi Cassandra ;). It's need vs want. Do I want that caramel sundae? Yes! But do I need it? No. It has no nutrition value it's empty calories and that's how I got to 274! It's a learning process but I am willing to continue on this journey.
Running has been a bit of struggle. I still have three training sessions left from couch to 5km. I should be finished by now but the last three runs are running 30 mins straight! Although I have ran 28 minutes these last two minutes are killing me! This week I ran 17 minutes and got tired and walked the rest of the way :(. I know I have come far with my weight loss and improving my pace but I refuse to say I completed this program until I run three times running 30 minutes straight! In other news I ran my fastest mile and km this week :).
When I first started it took me over 15 minutes to run a mile and ten minutes to run a kilometre. I can't believe it's been three months since I started running consistently and in that time I have almost ran 100kms.
Weigh in is tomorrow I am praying for a one pound loss! Wish me luck :).
