Yup, that's right - 'twas the holiday season and I had a fun and lazy time :) Fell off track so much that I must consider this week as yet another 'new start'. But, let's not waist any time thinking about what was done wrong - let's move forward instead, yes? :)
Weigh In, Monday, January 4th, 2010: 157.8lbs
I 'pre-counted' my points for the day and I'm at 23 (I have a budget of 21 pts a day, so I borrowed 2 from my weekly pts...)
Now, let's face it. With the plans I made for dinner, hunger is definately going to come and haunt me some time in the evening and therefore more pts will potentially be consumed. Here's what I plan to do to minimize the damage:
to do - vacuum around the house
to do - exercise with the Wii or my Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred DVD
to eat - heat up some frozen veggies (0 pts)
to eat - half a 'Smart Pop' pop corn (2 pts)
to avoid - chocolate!
I have thought about it a lot over the holidays and decided that I really like running - even if, except on the soccer pitch, I have not run at all since Oct. 17th for the Zoo Run. So, to motivate myself, I registered to 2 races for 2010:
Two races that I am really excited about: S will run the 8k with me - wheeeee! - and the Ottawa race is - well, in Ottawa!!! :) Last time I went to Ottawa was in 1992 or 1993 I think? I can't even remember - so looking forward to it!
Anything interesting to do there? Will any of you be at the race? A good sushi restaurant to recommend? ;)
I think it's really going to be a great experience, and running a 10k is a goal that I am really looking forward to reach. In the meantime now I have some serious training to do! No choice! :)
In June I plan to also do the Pride Run - which will bring me 'full circle' - it was my very first time running a race ever last year, and it really was the most fun! :) And I will finally get to 'correct my route mistake' - ha ha ha - phew! :)
