3 out of 100
I am so incredibly proud of my half marathon group. Yesterday my walking buddy and I were doing a pace of 8 minutes and 30 seconds. We were bringing up the back of the pack. Everyone was ahead of us, normally we're the leaders of the pack but we had a pretty hard core walk on Sunday so we decided to take it easy. Wow everyone totally turned it on. Everyone is going to beat their goal times at their races. I'm so excited for everyone.
I don't know what's wrong with my Garmin Forerunner (I love this thing, it's like the best training partner). Last night the screen froze, can't turn it off or anything. I left it on all night and today so hopefully the battery will die and then I can recharge it. Of course I have no idea where I put the receipt so then I can't use the warranty so that sucks. Oh well I haven't given up yet.
So my food plan has been going well, I left my journal at work yesterday and I actually felt lost without it. When I came in this morning I discovered I had already journalled my breakfast and lunch for today so I was bang on for points. I know have 9 pts for dinner and the options are endless. I could also do a lower point dinner to compensate for some of my weekend shenanigans. It would seem that day 3 is going well.
Finally tried the Biggest Loser DVD, OMG I did the low impact workout and couldn't get through it...mind you I also completed a 2.5hr walk that day so it probably wasn't the best day to try it.
Tonight I will walk home from the library (about 20min) and do the Core Secrets DVD for strength training.
Lately I've been obsessed with Strawberry Buttercream Icing...not to eat it...to make it. A couple of weeks ago my friend and I went to Crave in Kensington and I tried the mini princess cupcake. Buttercream icing infused with real strawberries. I think my walking group might get cupcakes on the last night :)
