Mighty proud of myself tonite...and for the first time i am starting to realise running 5 kilometres IS doable!!! :) We ran 3 kilometres tonite...in the rain no less...last week when we did it it took us 27 mins 45 seconds....today it took 25 mins 24 seconds...so ran it 2 mins 21 seconds faster - i was super impressed. And i didnt struggle too much...the pace was fine for me...so maybe i am improving...i mean i remember when we ran the first 2 kilometres...and fiona talked most of the way and i remember saying i wasnt talking back just listening to her cos i couldnt run and talk...tonight i was able to casually talk,,,and as fiona pointed out i didnt whinge and bitch once while doing it LOL So i think my plan of not working out last night worked well. I am sure in time my body will adjust to working out the day before i am running...but if i can build this running up cos it does burn more calories then anything else...i burnt approx 120 calories every 10 minutes tonite and about 15 minutes of that time was just walking!!!
Food wise things are going good...altho i am seriously considering buying a juicer...my snacks arent great...if i could make a juice and take that to work..it would help during my breaks to avoid the carb snacks. The scales are still going down. My water intake is up to about 1.8 litres a day...over the next week or so im hoping to build that up to 3 litres a day...so hard when its so bloomin cold!
I ate soup for lunch again today! Chicken and sweet corn soup today...so a lil bit of extra vegies i wouldnt be normally having...super impressed! :) So its not huge changes nutrition wise...but i am making changes....and will slowly keep making more changes.
I finally finished my Schapelle corby book...ive got some other books i ordered by karin slaughter and sue grafton i have ordered fingers crossed they arrive tomorrow!
