Yesterday my kids had a Halloween Party and somehow my willpower escaped me all day! I ate like it was 1999. I had cupcakes, graham crackers with frosting, chocolate, pizza, Carmel corn, cheese corn, much more coffee with flavored cream then I typically allow myself. I even finished the macaroni and cheese that the kids had for lunch! I feel super ugly about it today but I can't take it back so I just need to move forward. /today is a new day and a new chance.
I traded my boxing gloves in for my running shoes today and went on a pre-training schedule run. The weather is quickly slipping into a more wintery feel. This morning, although the sun was shining, it was only 38 degrees outside and the winds were about 16mph. I was kinda of dreading going out there but once I got out and starting moving I was energized. I did 4 miles at a gentle pace in the low tens. Just me, God, the elements and my iPod.
