MadKim it's great that you did your bike this morning. I am smiling hearing the news! I did good with my eating last night BUT the scale was up from 161 to 162 this morning, a bit discouraging and not sure why. I'm still in the induction phase with Atkins so I need to re-check my carb count. And YES I'd love to set a 5 lb goal date. I'm trying to lose at 2 lbs per week so for me that would be @ July 5th. What about you?
As far as the running, it took me 3 months to work up to the 5K, just adding a bit each week. I used Couch to 5K and then Nike Running app. I did try this several years ago but quit before I ever made it to the 5K mark.
I don't plan on running until I get the weight off. Frankly it's such a mental drain on me that I'd rather focus on my eating and do less strenuous workouts (yoga, walking for cardio).
That's cool that your daughter is settling near by. My daughter is only 7 and my husband and I are already joking that we'll move near her dorm/appt. when she goes away to school - LOL.
Today is my first day of work after being at home/working part time. I'm praying I don't stress eat at my new office!! Keep me in your thoughts today and I'll do the same for you.
Post and let me know how you are doing with your eating today
