Let me back up a tad. Since my last post I got so down and so upset because I just was in a funk. The only thing that seemed to make me feel better was going for a exercising. Tim and I took the baby and the dogs and we walked this weekend on our favorite greenbelt. I find it so peaceful to walk there. I can clear my head and refocus on my goals while we walk. Plus my cravings lessened and eventually kinda went away. It helps that I stuck to my meal plan and didn't eat or drink anything off plan.

Tim and I decided to go back to the high school track we used to run on when we first started hanging out. Our intention was to just walk, since I haven't ran or really worked out in 3 years, but when we got there we decided to try and run. We both ran a 1/4 mile without stopping. I can't even describe the feeling I got when I started to run. It was like my body knew exactly what to do. I immediately started regulating my breathing and it just felt so good to be running again. I have zero muscles in my legs though so they got tired before I did. But I did also run four sets of bleachers. (Up and down is one set.) I'm extremely pleased with what I accomplished and I feel good for the first time this week. I really needed to get out of my house and just be active. It makes all the difference in the world.
