|Just noticed when I previewed this blog that my shoes|
match my blog! Must have gotten a subliminal signal
when I saw these shoes and that is why I had to have them!
Yesterday I did my run that finished week 7 on C25K. It was another 25 min run. It was difficult, but I REFUSED TO QUIT. I knew I could do it and so I DID! I am hoping my next run will be great. My plan is to move up to at least 28 mins but may go for 30! I really think I can do it so I will let you know when it is done. Once I can get 35 mins run at once time I will restart C25K and increase my speed. Right now I just want to get my time in and know I can go that far! If I can do 35 mins running I know I will be able to increase my speed and get a 5K done easier and faster! I will also start doing my research on 5K's in the area so I can plan a timeline to race day!
I got fast food yesterday for lunch for my boss. He told me I could get something as well and I said if I could find something healthy I would. I can't remember the last time I had fast food so this was a challenge for me. He wanted Arby's so it was not an easy choice. I picked a Market Fresh Turkey and Swiss sandwich. It was HUGE. Thankfully they already cut it in half :) I checked the nutritional values and figured the points. I ordered it without the mayo and left the spicy mustard. It came out to 8 points per half. Had I left the mayo on it, it would have added another 3 points to the whole sandwich! I also ordered a side salad with the light Italian dressing and so my whole lunch was 9 points. Same as it would have been had I decided to just have my sandwich at the shop and baked Cheetos. I thought I did very well! As for the evening, John and I went down to the bar for Friday night beers! I love my relaxing Friday nights :) I did have a few too many, but it's all good! I did have the other half of my sandwich at the end of the night, so I woke up today not feeling too bad :)
Today we went to Rapid City, SD to do some shopping. We stopped in Spearfish to grab a light lunch. I ordered a McChicken (not my best choice, but that is all I had). We didn't decide to eat until 5pm in Rapid City at Qdoba (mmmm yum). So this made it my dinner and filled me up a little more than I would have liked, but I didn't feel too bad about it, knowing I had ate lightly and would continue to eat light as the night went on :) I ordered a chicken burrito and shared chicken nachos with John. I love their chips! I will just have to work a little harder but I am willing to do this!
I stopped at David's Bridal today to get some info about altering my dress when the time comes. They told me they can only go down 2 dress sizes (YIKES). I hope this is an issue and at the same time I hope it is not...lol
Well now I am chilling and enjoying my stress-free weekend! Off to drink another 24oz of water :) I can see me drinking a ton of water from here on out!!! Don't forget share your thoughts on my goals. Love to hear your feedback if your reading this! Until then...
