Sweat More, Eat Less = More Power

So, this week has been more of a relaxing week for me. I struggled through some migraines at the beginning of the week which left me weak and just not feeling well. I still did some light running and yoga, but took it kind of easy this week. Today I did a more challenging run and have gotten to the point where I can do the full 15 min. without breaking. My second 15 min. set is a little more tricky, but I'm still working on it. I have been consistently running 2+ miles so that is an improvement for me.

In April is the Tok Trot which is a traditional 10K run here in Tok. I would really love to participate this year even if I can't run the whole thing. This is my goal and I'll keep working towards it. Somehow I am very slow at progressing into a more distance runner, but eventually I will get there!

I'm still weighing in around the same, but that's totally normal for me. I'm pretty much the same weight/size that I've always been my whole life, so I've just accepted that this is where I am! Obviously I'd still love to lose another 10 lbs, but I'm okay with where I'm at and just focusing on challenging myself each week.

Since Cherry gave up chocolate for a few weeks I've decided that I'm going to try to do the same - Maybe I will be more successful knowing that someone else is doing it with me!?

Mantra for the week: Make a choice: You can either settle or sweat(I choose to sweat!)

If you guys are giving up chocolate, I told Cherry I'm going to give up greasy fast food. No MORE SONIC!

Hey lady! Keep it up, I am not a runner so I think that is fabulous to do 15 minutes straight. I blogged on my diet and exercise. It is long and probably boring, but it was kind of cool to see if all writen down. Love ya and keep fighting the good fight!!!
