I ran two miles continuously. Without stopping. And it only took me about 21 minutes.
The most I've done before this is one mile. And, for the record, I really hate running. But I did it. Mostly because I have felt myself slipping lately. I have been totally committed to exercising and to my eating plan, but the past two weeks I have not been doing so hot. In fact, I made it to the lowest weight I've ever hit here in Michigan (a weight I've hit twice before in the past year and a half)(you know, that awful plateau weight)(and then I give up) last week, and I really want to not give up this time. But, like I said, I'm slipping.
I don't know if it's the actual weight itself, or the time it usually takes to get me there, but I am totally bored of my eating plan. And then I wonder why I never get bored of my horrible eating plan, the one where I just eat whatever, because it's not like it's full of a ton of variety, either! And when I start not being totally committed to eating right, I stop wanting to work out.
So today, I forced myself to do the two miles. And I surprised myself, because it wasn't really that hard. So, we'll see if I can jump back on track this week, because let's just say that Easter didn't really do me any favors, curses to Cadbury and those dang eggs!
Speaking of Easter, here are the girls on Easter Sunday. I am afraid this is the last year we can do the matchy-matchy thing unless I get my act together and sew them some dresses. Bria's dress is the largest size The Children's Place carries, and it was still a titch too short. I was happy that I could find some shoes that fit her (she's practically wearing my shoes)(and I wear a 9.5!) and still matched the other two. Yes, I am a little freaky about the matching thing, I totally admit. Now, didn't I say there were pictures?
Yes, there are pictures, and Sophia wasn't really feeling very cooperative...
Perhaps I'll vent about that by running three miles.
Hope you all had a happy Easter!
