If you read my last post, you know I was attempting to focus less on losing weight and more on being disciplined in what I eat.
So far, I have been blessed in this attempt and have been doing very well. Since the new year, I have lost 7 pounds. Many, many of those days were difficult. Many times I stood in front of a mirror giving myself a drill sergeant speech on how I was not going eat. Kinda silly sounding, but it helped!
It feels so good to be in weight loss mode again. Seems like it has been a long time since I have lost weight. It is good to know I can still do it!
As far as running, it too has gone well. Through the winter, I am not attempting to build up my running, but simply to maintain a certain level. My runs consist of running 20 minutes, walking three minutes, then running another 5 minutes. It equals to somewhere around 2.5 miles of running. Once the weather stabilizes, I will start pushing again to get back up to 5k.
God is so good!
