So did I die without meat this week? Not one little bit. We didn’t have any but since I wasn’t going to be having it, it wasn’t a big deal at all. So this week was a success going without. Now I do know I could of eaten much better with more salads and fresh veggies but I didn’t and I can really tell today. No I didn’t stand on the scale, my ring is not loose like it was and neither are my pants. So I’ve got to get back to eating right and tracking. I’ve been horrible at doing both of those so on my to do list this week is track and eat right. There’s no way I’ll be less at the beginning of the school year if I don’t.
So this week I will be having lots of these…
And not so much this….even in the light/less sugar stuff….
And get ready myfitnesspal, I’m back to being a pest and tracking. First thing tomorrow morning that is….because today, well Jim took me out for breakfast, my mama made me a malt and while cleaning out the freezer….I found a tube of girl scout cookies that I shared with daddy while he was here. So tomorrow is my day and it’s also going to be a fasting day, gotta clean out all this junk first.
Now for the challenge this week it’s to plan and enter and be part of a 5K race. The only one coming up in our area is a 1/4 marathon that is called Run to the Dump. It’s a run, not a walk and it’s 6 1/4 miles starting time is 8 am and awards are 9:40 so that doesn’t leave time for any walking really. So I can’t sign up for this one because as much as I want to run, well I have come to the conclussion it isn’t going to happen. Not a full run anyways, I can keep doing what I’m doing, run/walking/jogging/trotting, but I’m not going to be able to just plain run. My leg swells up (Jim says it really looks weird from the back, like I have a muskmelon by my knee and the pain, well it’s not worth it. So this race isn’t for me. And right now we don’t have our October one planned yet. I’ll have to do some more research and see what I can find. Maybe I’ll have to offer to host another virtual run. Is anyone interested in something like that? We’d have sign up, bibs, pictures and goals to make and a prize at the end. What do you think? I’ll work on this one Rochelle, if it’s okay with you.
So this week is for me just to get my butt back on track. Busy as I am I know that I can and will find time to do some exercising and walking. I miss the gym but that’s not possible so that means just getting on the floor and doing what I know I can do and knowing that I can get back to where I’m suppose to be.
So good luck my friends, here’s to a successful week 7, our 1/2 point. Our time to do this right. I have 33 days until I go and pick up Mike at the airport in the cities, I want to be feeling good, looking better then when I saw him and ready to keep up with some of the things we are planning while he’s home.
Take care my friends, have a blessed evening!
