Well, I have been running a few times a week since November and am on week 7 of my official training. Oh my goodness how much has changed! It’s so hard to believe that a few months ago I had to stop multiple times per mile and walk. I ran 6 miles yesterday. Ran. Yes, that’s right, I ran 6 miles straight. For all you regular runners that may not seem like much, but for a girl who hated running and could literally not run a full mile without walking 4 months ago….that is awesome! I stood in the garage after my run and marveled at the fact that my legs had just carried me 6 miles. I really think I could have run 4 more miles after just resting for a few minutes…this half marathon is in the bag!
Now, in terms of healthy eating….that is a whole different story. I have been doing well on my breakfasts and lunches having Fruit or oatmeal for breakfast and a sandwich or salad for lunch. It’s the dinners that kill me…I feel as though it’s an every other day kind of thing. One day I eat salmon and veggies, and the next I’m eating pizza or tacos. I really need to work on the consistency in my healthy eating, but at the same time I need to acknowledge that I am doing so much better than I used to! We only bought one box of Girl Scout cookies this year and they are long gone…I refuse to buy any more!
