5K & Gravy

It's been a big week. I participated in my first 5K Saturday with 17,000 of my closest friends. :) It went really well. I completed it in 52:39. I only walked it - with a group. I think next time I'll try one on my own and actually jog a bit. But, I really did enjoy it. We also did some more training afterward. By the end of the day I had walked 14 miles. Amazing!! My feet did bother me a bit at the end of the day. Some of the sidewalks we walked on were rough. We also walked a lot on gravel at the Renaissance Festival. This Saturday is another training session. I believe we're doing 13 miles. Shew! I'm looking forward to it though. The ladies I'm training with are really nice and it makes the walk much more pleasant to have company.

So, I'm still royally sucking up my eating habits. I feel like the food is controlling me again. Friday Derek & I celebrated our 6th anniversary (yay!) and went to dinner that night. I had to have eaten all my daily allowance points and more in that one Italian meal. I didn't bother logging it. It was delicious though! Yesterday was a family dinner at a buffet. There was nothing overly healthy or point-worthy. I'm thinking tomorrow is going to be the same. I'm going to Derek's cooking club (wives are invited once a year). I don't get to choose what to eat - they just serve us the 4 courses they are cooking for us. I've got to get a handle on this. :(

    Eating is my downfall as well! I have the biggest sweet tooth! I find myself thinking, "Just ONE more cookie," and I keep saying that.

    Don't get discouraged! You can control it. It's just food! You have a brain and it doesn't. =)

    I'm super impressed at your 5k! I can't even imagine. You are an inspiration for sure!

    The eating is the hardest part. Dont kick yourself, just stay within your points tomorrow and try not to go over any more this week. I know for me in the past when I effed up then I would be like..well, I guess I'll just throw this week away and start again on Monday. Don't do that!! Start today, start afresh. You can do it. We can do it! Keep up the good work and dont get discouraged. Remember...eat to live, don't live to eat.
