Eyes on the Prize

My titles are getting goofy, but in some small way it makes me feel like I'm making progress on this journey... but it's a tough one! Is it possible for your own body to try to sabotage you?

It must be - I felt great until time to come home and workout - then BOOM... major headache! Well, that's not getting me down this time - so I pushed through it and opted to push myself even further by racing the little computer guys on the treadmill.

I beat them, and managed to burn 310 calories in the process. I walked just over two miles in 37 minutes, and I feel pretty good about that workout.

My calories are within range, and I feel good about that too... I drank all my water, and took my vitamins too. That means I've met all my goals for the past two days... we've got to keep this train moving in the same direction tomorrow, and then Thursday is my day to miss working out.

With small group there isn't enough time to get in a workout too - but I'm going to try to get one in every other day of the week.

On Sunday night, we watched the movie Maid of Honor with Patrick Dempsey... it was really cute! We enjoyed it... now our stack of unwatched movies is down to: The Waitress, Leatherheads, and Catch & Release. We'll try for getting another one in this weekend too... it was nice to get everything done for the week and then relax with John for a movie.
