Rockin' it!

i'm not going to lie, i'm rockin' my goals. i haven't indulged (or even been tempted to indulge) in sugar or sweets for the last 11 days. i'm so proud of myself... i'm seriously a sugar-aholic, so this is a big accomplishment for me. they are serving chocolate at the finish line of the half-marathon i'm running on may 31, so that will be my treat for making it with no sweets until then.

i did go over my weight watchers point allowance this last week, but only by 4.5 points, so i'm not too boohoo over it. 4.5 points works out to be about 250 calories, so, again, not really that big of a deal. plus, i still lost 2 pounds since last week when i weighed myself last night at the gym after yoga class, so those extra 4.5 points must not have made a difference... maybe they even helped.

my running has been going pretty well... i've been getting up almost every morning to run and i've been getting more comfortable at a little bit of a faster pace. and, as always, i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE going to yoga twice a week. if i had the time for it, i would go EVERY night. it's like a little bit of heaven after a long day of potty-training. :)

way to go whit! with the no sugar, and with getting up every morning. i need to start staying up after i feed sayer at 6 or 6:30am, then i don't have to go through the pain of waking up again.

you are going to do so awesome on this half, i can feel it. i am coveting your garmin these days. it is so hard to gauge how fast i am going, and i want to make really specific goals for my races. maybe for my b-day.
