Day FIVE Diet and Exercise

Today went smoothly. Food, water, Diet Coke, and exercise all in check. I am very proud of myself. I can mark one goal off of my list, 5 days on the treadmill. Woo! I also decided to set a new goal for myself. I may or may not make it, but I am going to do my darnedest! I want to walk and/or run 1000 miles in 2012. That is 2.75 miles a day. Wish me luck!

My son was eating corn chips and salsa today, and omg it was so hard not to eat those corn chips when he offered me some. Chips are my weakness. My nemesis. I would have ate at least 1/2 the bag. I made it through, politely declined, and not one chip passed my lips. If it had been the Buffalo Doritos, well then.. that would have been much harder. I would probably have had to drag myself away.

I stayed up late last night watching The Biggest Loser on Netflix, so getting up early this morning was not easy. Talk about a slug. I have felt droopy all day long. I didn't think I could make it a mile on the treadmill, but I made it a mile and a half in 32 minutes. I went back and forth from 2.7-3 mph. It has been a while since I moved like that and it showed. I had sweat rolling. It is always shocking that it takes every ounce of energy I have to get on that treadmill but when I get off I feel so much better.
