I had a good week!
Love those even loss weeks… when I can say I lost XX pounds, without a point-something at the end. Just a personal thing!
I ate so many veggies this week and really tried hard. I did occasionally go over by about 100 calories, but I felt really comfortable with my dietary choices and of course, all the “running.”
C25K is… hard. Some days I’m shocked by how much I look forward to it, how great I feel after, and how much less tired I am after the runs compared to a week ago. But then when I am “running,” I’m not impressed. I think a grandma in a walker could scoot-run past me faster. My pace today was miserable… I ran before work this morning (it was a BEAUTIFUL 75 degrees out!) and I don’t know if it’s because I’ve felt a little under the weather, but I put up a poor showing.
I’m really hoping that I can get to a point where I’m comfortable jogging for longer spans of time. The entire time I’m jogging I am praying for that voice to say “begin walking.” Please tell me that my body will get used to running more and more? Bueller? My Orlando friend Lisa (who is blogging about her training too!) is signed up for some races, and I hope to join her for one or two if I start to feel more comfortable with running. Fingers crossed! I might have to re-do week 3 to help me get more used to it.
I also got some swap goodies from the Just Add Color Fall Swap- nail polish and scarves :)
My swap partner was Libby, from It’s Never Too Late… Although I’m Always Late! She got me a cute lightweight knit scarf in gorgeous grey and turquoise for the scarf part. It will be perfect for the cold days in Florida’s “winter” where I need just a light scarf. She also got me two essie nail polishes… one of my dream polishes, Very Structured, and a very fun Florida color, Braziliant. You can’t really see it here, but Braziliant is orange with a hot pink shimmer. It doesn’t get much more Florida than that!
She also threw in some fun Halloween stickers and orange and gold bangle bracelets. I loved my package- thank you so much Libby!!!
I cannot wait to try out the Very Structured nail polish… I have been wanting it for more than a year. It will have to wait though… tonight I do my nails for the wedding this weekend. Our friends Lyd and Aaron are here (staying with us until going to a hotel tomorrow for a week) and we’re definitely going to do nails tonight. I took off my old nail polish last night… how is this for a week’s worth of wear!?!
I chipped my pointer nail after a day or so trying to get something that was stuck in my teeth (don’t use your nails as tools!) but the rest looked awesome after a week. If this isn’t a testament to using a base coat and top coat (and GOOD ones) then I don’t know what is. DO IT, people!!
More nails tomorrow for the Nail Files if I can get my ish together. We’re headed out of here around 6:30am so it might be rough – I don’t plan on staying up late. Either way, I will have updates for you on the wedding and all nails/accessories next week!
