The Good: I had a FANTASTIC run today on the treadmill at my house. I was able to run almost a full mile and a half! Holy cow! I think back to last December and am amazed by how far I have come. I couldn't even run 30 seconds to 1 minute at a time. Now, I am running a full 15-20 minutes. I am starting the Couch Potato to 5K plan tomorrow to hopefully get me ready for the 5Ks I have this fall! I am DETERMINED to run one of them!!
I also made a delicious dinner tonight that was SO EASY! I made Spicy Chipotle Chicken in my Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker (honestly the best thing I own in the kitchen) with brown rice and green peas. With Shawn working odd schedules, it is difficult for me to find easy dinners that work for just me. This will definitely be one I make again! All I did with the chicken was put the chipotle rub on them, cooked them in the microwave in the baker for 8 minutes, then topped them with Fresh Market's Chipotle Salsa. DE-LI-CIOUS!
The Bad: I struggled this morning starting off the day right with my normal breakfast meal because we had left over Brugger's bagels at our house from Sunday School yesterday. I chose the "easy" way out this morning and grabbed one on my way out the door to my all-day meeting. Not a great way to start the day.
The Ugly: I did not write my food down today like I said I was going to. I have to make myself more accountable and get back on track. I think I am going to have to go on a no-sugar, no-sweet fast again like I did at first so I can detox my body from it. I can tell the whole "addition" to sweets feeling is back and I am ready to get over it again.
