Running

I have been running for quite awhile now. Before I lost all of the weight, I would walk fast on the treadmill. I eventually felt like I could run. 1 mile was so hard to run without stopping! Once I started doing that well, I started running 2 miles, but stopped once to catch my breath. When we joined the Y, I noticed I could run 3 miles on their treadmill. I wasn't sure why I couldn't do that at home! But now that I have the Nike+, I have found out that my mileage was off on my treadmill. I was actually going 3 miles! So, I have been running 3 miles! I can't believe it! Here are my stats so far this past week:

I almost hit the 4 mile mark. I can't wait to get to 5 miles. I was excited to run a 5k on the treadmill Sunday. It felt awesome!

So, I have the running down, I need to start eating better again. I have been eating bad for the past 5 days! I need to start eating more natural again. I will be going to the store on Friday. Here are some things on my list:
spinach, strawberries. coconut, Kashi meals, lettuce, eggs, grapes, whole wheat flour, Ezekiel bread, La Tortilla Factory tortillas, cheese, water (thinking of getting the pur system), cilantro, black beans

I have found this week that I cannot be trusted with potato chips, bagels, sugar, oreos, Italian beef sandwiches! I ate way too much.

So, here is what I will be doing the rest of the week (besides running and homeschooling!):

Make Cassidy's invitations

Grocery shopping:

Plant some of these:
Go to the mall (see the Easter Bunny!)

I hope everyone has a great week.

Hubby says he can run much farther on the gym treadmills than ours!
