Is it Sunday already? Wow, the week has flown by. Anyhoo, I'm pround of my efforts this week. I really did reign it in and I have kept myself in check with pickng the right foods. And my scale showed it thise morning. But my official weigh in is tomorrow.

I went to the park yesterday and attempted to run 6 miles. I don't know if it was my allergies or a cold coming on, but by mile 4 I had to stop and walk the rest. It was still a big accomplishment, but I really, really wanted to get another 6 miler in. I have to start upping my mileage each week to prepare for the Peachtree Road Race in July. I'm very excited about it. It's a big race and one that Atlanta is famous for. So I'm gearing up to do well, time wise, on that 10k. Only problem is that it's on July 4th and I cannot imagine how hot it is going to be. With the summer heat and humidity coming back into Altanta, I've got to start eating the right foods and getting my water in. Otherwise, I'll be up a creak on my runs. But, so far, so good this week.

I got into another pair of size 4's and I'm way thrilled about that. It's kinda of surreal. It's just so weird being in this body now. I'm just so used to never really feeling quite right in anything, so to be able to wear all the cute trends now is just amazing. I think running is really doing a great service to my body. My muscle tone is good and I feel much "tighter" everywhere. And, hey, that's always a good feeling, right?

So, I'm getting closer and close to goal. Unfortunately it's taken a snail's pace getting there lately, but I'm so close. I think last week was the last straw on my slacking. I took a look back at my WW's weigh in records and realized I had been gaining and losing the same 3 lbs since January! What!??? That just pissed me off enough to get serious. I experimented this week with eating more Core foods. For those that don't know, WW's has two plans. The Flex Plan and the Core Plan. The Flex is what I've been doing: counting points. The Core Plan is a non-counting plan where you are limited to certain foods. Luckily both plans let you enjoy those extra 35 Weekly Allowance points each week. So, this week I've been sticking to mostly Core foods, but still counting them. I think it's helped me tremendously. I just feel lighter. Know what I mean?

Anyway, here's my tracker for today. Ed and I have made a rule that we're eating in every day for all meals this next month to save up money. We just eat out too much. SO, staying on plan has been easier for that reason too.
