I was asked by my Sister-in-law today how did you do it? Run a whole 5K. She was so impressed and very jealous that I can do that and she can't. I told her that if I could do it anybody can (that is if you don't have health issues). I explained the "couch to 5K" program and how it works. You don't even need to use that program, it's just about starting off with short running intervals and slowly over time increasing the running till you are running the entire time. Start slow and increase that's it.
I have been struggling a bit with food this last week. I have had stress at work and I turned to food. I was eating a fairly large amount of chocolate one day and I just kept thinking, what am I doing? I'm mad at a certain person at work and I am solving this by eating chocolate?? It doesn't make sense. I'm feeling better about things already but I had a few bad days and I haven't tracked other than a few days here and there since I got my Lifetime. My weight is still doing OK but what I would really like is to try to get BELOW my goal by a few pounds so I'm not so stressed about it. I'm back to tracking and I will get there. I have to get it into my head that I'm not DONE. There is no ending to this journey of mine. Everyday I will need to watch what I eat and stay active. I can't eat a ton of chocolate or candy (yes I got into some candy too) and stay at my goal weight. I can eat a bit of those things but all in moderation. A taste is one thing, but binging is another. Old habits die hard. The old Kim is still there. I will fight with her every day.
