"Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”
I am so filled with joy today. I lost 2 pounds!!! I am so happy about that. I'm right on track for this month. I haven't been doing WW, I just don't want to shell out the money, plus I'm not sure I like the new program. So, rather than WW, I've been doing SparkPeople cause it's freeeee. It has a lot of the same things that WW does, but there's no points and it's all about reading the label.
This morning I was laying in bed and Jason says to me, "Hey, I thought you were going to get up early and run." It was funny cause right at that moment I was having that argument in my head "should I stay or should I go?" His comment made the decision for me. I got up and ran. 3.72 miles! During my run I just kept thinking about how awesome my husband is. He's so great to me. I'm getting a little faster, I even had negative splits this time. :) I am so happy right now. I'm starting to get the hang of running again. I love that feeling I get after a good run. A good run + losing weight makes me feel like I'm progressing and it really makes me want to keep going.
OOOH!! I forgot to tell you, but a couple days ago I signed up for a marathon! It's the Really Big FREE Marathon. I was hoping to run one this year and I still might, but this Big Free one is November 2012. That'll give me TONS of time to get ready. It looks like it'll be lots of fun.
I hope everyone has a great week! I know I will. :)
