A couple weeks back the hubby and I had the serious conversation of, "we're getting way off track, it's time to change things, we must watch our diet, we must exercise more!" And then I ate another cookie - we've had a lot of snow days recently and the kids like to make cookies when we're stuck at home.
But over the past week or so I've thrown on my running shoes and went back to weeks 3 and 4 of the couch to 5k plan. I got in 4 miles of a run/walk on Saturday this past weekend - it was actually warm and dry enough to do it outside. Anything more than 2 miles inside is just painfully boring.
So I'm starting again, kind of. The diet still needs serious attention. I've gained back 14 pounds in the last 9 months. I was kind of surprised it wasn't more but still it's too much. I know what I have to do: serious monitoring/diet journal and cardio exercise plus toning 5-6 days a week. However, what the mind knows and what the mind is willing to do are often different.
But even though this is a boring entry I thought I'd pop my head back in and say hello. If nothing else maybe journaling my exercise will help me get on track again.
