Monday Review Smiles Sheepishly

Sorry I flaked on you guys last week. My daughter had a rotten stomach flu which I am blaming lots of flakiness on, but the truth is, I was just feeling extra frustrated last week. Every time I tried to exercise, something required my immediate attention right that second. And certain hormonal conditions made me feel like I would die if I didn't eat my own body weight in chocolate and salt. I felt like I had fallen off of the bandwagon in a big, lame, losery way. I'm still not quite back on the dietary straight and narrow, but I'm doing better this week. Also, I made a deal with my sister in law that we would run the half marathon portion of the Great Potato Race this spring. Together. Which means I have to be serious about the running now. 'Cause she's like a real runner and stuff. And I don't want to let her down. So that's a huge help.
How was your week? What's helping you stay on track? Any tips on training for a half marathon?
Goals this week: 1/2 lb
Keep track of eating and make better choices

Seeing results seems to be one of my biggest motivators. It takes time but the first time you can SEE the difference in the clothes you usually wear, or in pictures taken, it's a BIG push to keep going. Seeing the results really helps know that you can do it, but until then you need to have hope and faith that it will happen, that you can do it, 'cause you can, it just takes time, work, and lots of patience. :-)
