Sooo, I try to be as honest as I can. Last night, I ate. Again. That’s 2 nights in a row. Ughhh. I don’t even be hungry. I just want to eat. I kept it Keto foods, but still. On the way home from work, I was so close to going to McDonald’s, but I talked myself out of it and turned around and just went home. I told myself if I’m going to eat anything, it’ll be keto foods. Still not good, but I’m trying here lol.
I wish I would’ve never started eating carb dense foods again because now I have cravings like a MF. Ughhh it sucks. But I’m going to do better, I promise this to myself.
I did get up before 8 today and got motivated by a friend. I was just laying in bed when he told me he was up early to go to the gym. So I was like lemme get my ass up and goooo too. I went to the park (my little park) and initially planned to do 3 miles, but I did 2 instead. I didn’t wanna push myself too much especially with it being hot out there and I didn’t bring any water.
I must say, I feel sooo good. There was another girl there, she was running thoo. And all I could think was, “wow, you’re passing me up again?” Hahah! I’m not the fastest walker, but ima get there. Today’s day 1. I planned on going just 3 days a week for right now, but idk. May go the rest of the week. I feel sooo good. The sun was out, but there was also a cool breeze accompanying him. It was perfect.
Thank you @xtinedancefit for being some inspiration and motivation to me. You have pushed me as well and you don’t know how much I appreciate that and you. You’re absolutely amazing, doll! 😘😘
I sort of had a super amazing day! Even though I already got my butt on the move today, it was so nice and sunny outside that I just had to walk through Metro Park. Very spring-like today, though a little windy. Such is life in Michigan. I think I used my legs enough today, so I’ll probably move cardio to Thursday and do my ab workout tomorrow to give them a break. I feel so on top of things this week.

Taste Of Spring
26 August 2017
Spring is in the air with sunshine and flowers and the prospect of Summer to come - aah joy. I had a healthy breakfast smoothie and lots of veges with my bacon & eggs for lunch, with a 4.5km walk for coffee & ‘Living Pukka’ catch-up in between. This is a health-focussed fb group and I had a fun time meeting some new people. This evening I got my kit ready for tomorrow’s City To Durf 12km fun run. The weather forecast is for sunshine and 24°C. It may be more of a walk jog for me but the plan is to turn up and enjoy the day.
