Where were we.. oh yes, Janathon.. cough.
Ho hum, Monday I texted DH to tell him I was going to walk after work. Meanwhile I got stuck in a traffic jam and it was pelting down with rain and the wind was so strong it was buffeting the car. I wimped out.
Tuesday I GOT UP TO RUN!! Yep I did 3 miles in the dark, before work, and attempted a 10 minute per mile pace and came in slightly under. Win.
Today was supposed to be my day off, I vaguely remember those! I had to go in for a meeting so walked into town and back which is about 3.5 miles. Biscuits etc on the table, is it too soon to say I think I've cracked it? I've done 30 days with no chocolate or biscuits and haven't really come close to giving in. The alcohol thing has been harder, but it still feels good to say I haven't had a drop since New years Eve, mostly thanks to the husband and his willpower! I would have caved last weekend without a doubt. Don't come looking for me on Friday night, I plan on being DRUNK. Which will probably take one glass!
Diet - I've been logging on MFP since Monday and doing really well. my danger zone is from when I get home from work until we have our evening meal. Especially when the husband is on day shifts as we don't eat until 7pm. I had to give myself a good talking to. I am not going to DIE from being hungry for an hour, and I should either plan to eat earlier on my own, have a small snack to tide me over, or just suck it up and live with it. A mixture of those things has been working so far. I'm confident of a loss this week.
Half marathon training officially starts next week. I should be running tomorrow (note the should and imagine the sense of doubt that word entails) we'll see.
There, you're all caught up! One more day to go, although I haven't really done myself proud with Janathon this month, I am proud of my other achievements and am pretty happy with where I am.
