I had another great day today. Eating has been on track lately and I honestly can’t say what it is that has changed. I find that I need to save some points for a snack in the evening and for a while I didn’t have anything left and then I would go over my points. Now I have a lot left over and this seems to work out the best for me. I am more hungry later in the day for some reason. I am eating more fruits and veggies and I know that helps a lot.
I am finding out that if I exercise I feel so much better. Work was frustrating, as usual. I studied so hard for my midterm based on a study guide the professor gave us and the midterm didn’t have any of the information from the study guide on it. I was so disappointed because I knew so much information based on what she told us to study and then the test was totally different. That’s really frustrating. I hope I did ok. But the point is, I came home and made myself go out for a run when all I really wanted to do was sit on the sofa for a while. I feel 100% better. I am energized and happy again. I’m going to work on changing my behavior so that instead of wanting to sit on the sofa I will want to go for a run. The results from a run make it so worth it. I just need to focus on that!
The run today seemed to go a little better than Monday. I had a little more energy but it stills wears me out. I wonder if I’m ever going to be able to run a whole mile? That seems so far away to me. I can run for 3 minutes but by the end of it I’m way out of breath. I think I could go on to week 4 of the c25k if I put my mind to it. They say running is a mind game. I find it does help to focus mentally and not on how my body feels. I’m scared of running for 5 minutes straight. But maybe it’s time to push myself a little further. Afterall, I didn’t think I could run for 3 minutes straight either!
I also want to mention again that you can follow me on Twitter here.
