making use of my lunch hour

this is the fourth straight week that i've ran during lunch. i'm not running a whole lot, just twice a week. there are 5 lunch opportunities in a week, so why not sacrifice two of them to get in some running? especially when the days are getting shorter and the sun rises so much later! yes, a big change from summer for sure.

anyway, i've been running during my lunch period the last few weeks. like i mentioned above, this is my fourth week and so far, so good. since my last post, i've kind of stopped the nike training app stuff. i know, so awful. that only lasted 7-8 days, not even 2 weeks! well, i'm hoping i'll stick with this running during lunch. i know they say you gotta give yourself at least 21 days to make a new habit stick. i'm hoping this one will stick. i've gone past the 21 days, but of course, that's just what people say. let's see what my body/mind says. now, i just need to watch what i eat and add in some strength training exercises. maybe i'll pick up the nike app again, or do something else. oh, i do have all those workout pins on pinterest. maybe mix in some of those with my 4-5 runs throughout the week, we'll see.

whatever it is, the number on the scale isn't diminishing and that's not good. it's almost a full year since baby #2, so yeah.. very disappointing. i told myself i'd do better this time around. i guess in a way i am or is better, but then again, i didn't or it's not any better. i must really just do it! i know, like my motto that i keep telling myself, "a year from now you'll wish you had started today" – no way, i don't want to have any of that! i don't want to be wishing a year from now i'd started today. so i guess like nike puts it best, "just do it!"

my diet so far today. it hasn't been super, i really need to plan my meals better.
