No Carb Left Behind

Sunday 10/28/12

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.

               2 (stupid) cupcakes!  (I tried to get rid of them but the soccer team didn't eat all of them)

Not my best day ever, I will be super glad when Halloween is over!  Too much temptation, EVERYWHERE and God did not grace me with a whole lot of willpower.
