Chapter 2 page 243 - TR 83 & back on track

I'm glad that I have this avenue for being able to confess and celebrate. Today was back on track!!! Back to water, fruits, veggies, salad and soup for lunch. I have been extremely mindful of what I've eaten today to ensure that it is on the lower end of my daily allowed calories (to help make up for yesterday's completely "off the chart" eat-fest!).

Today I ran/walked 4 miles with "C". It's our first run together since BEFORE Christmas. Man, I sure have missed our time together. She is an amazing friend -we laugh and talk and just enjoy being together. This was "C's" first run outside since before Christmas and my first run since I hurt my knee 10 days ago. We went 4 miles because everything was feeling really good . . . probably should have just gone 2 - my knee is REALLY hurting!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got home and I'm icing it while I type this. We did a 3/4 mile warm up and a 1/2 mile cool down and then used the 2:2 interval for the rest of it. It wasn't fast, but it was steady and very comfortable. It was just sooooo great to get back out there (bummer, my knee is really hurting still!!!!). Can I just say the warmer temps and longer days are REALLY making me happy!!!!!! Come on spring!!!


  1. I am loving how it's staying lighter for longer! I think I'm reallllllly ready for spring.

    Keep icing that knee!

  2. Take care of yourself and great job! And I second you on this weather.

  3. SO nice to have company on runs. And way to go getting back on track... sometimes I think the hardest part is not starting healthy habits but getting back to them after relapses. You can do it!
