Short Hair and Running....

This week has been going really well with eating/exercising and Im hoping to see a loss tomorrow. I also got a subscription to Runners World yesterday so hopefully it will come in before too long. Dont ask me why I have such a desire to run but its a great one. Maybe its because I always gave up and said I cant do it because its too difficult the same thing I did with WL for a long time. Its just one of those things thats like I want to do this.

I saw an article on Runners World that I thought was interesting that said you should never increase your mileage for running by more than 10% in one week. Supposedly its how you can get injured easily if you overkill yourself. So Im taking it slow and I know I can work my way up. Me and hubby both ran today and while we still cant run long distances I didnt get as winded as I did the other day when I did it so its getting better and hopefully I can up my mileage and such soon.

Oh and the other thing was I chopped my hair off, maybe about 4-5 inches today I love it! Short hair was always one of those things I did in the summer but hated it because I looked so much fatter because of it. Well this is the first year Im loving it and dont feel like such a fat butt over a short hair cut. I will have to upload the picture I took of it.

The other thing was I went to get my new Drivers license and it was one of the first pictures that I have taken since driving that I told my real weight and actually loved my picture and I know it all has to do with the weight Ive lost.

So food for today...
Breakfast: Fiber One peach yogurt with 1/2 c Apple Cinnamon cherrios mixed in, water
Lunch: Crawfish etoufee with brown rice, water
Dinner: peanut butter & jelly, half of crab cake, water
Snack: Strawberry banana smoothie bar, 17 honey wheat crackers, 2 X 16.9 oz. water
Exercise: walk/run

Everything seems to be going well - great job, Amber!!

I started running in October. I followed one of the running programs where you powerwalk and add on runs. My first run was noe minute. And since January, I run 10K one to three times a week, approaching my magical time limit of 60 min (right now I'm at 62). So just be patient, you'll get there faster than you think!
