We are home from today’s Easter Egg Hunt. We had a great day. Several of my family members were able to come down, including my little sister and her husband, who ran a 10K this morning! Wow. That’s 6.2 miles.
I also did a bit of running – .5 miles to be exact. 🙂
My goal is to be able to run a mile, without stopping, by the end of the month. I’m pretty sure that I can do it – and I’m going to give it a shot tomorrow, after church.
Here’s how I handled eating today, surrounded by folks who were eating cakes and cookies and candies –
I fixed my plate – one hot dog w/ bun, a few chips, a bottled water, and a diet soda. I sat down, and I ate SLOWLY. Very, very slowly. (On a ‘normal’ day, I can eat three hot dogs in about 2 minutes. Or four.) After eating half of the hot dog, I began to feel full. I ate a few chips, took a sip of water, and went to toss the football and hang with some friends. About 20 minutes later, I came back, slowly ate what was left of the hot dog, drank some soda, and I was finished. I wasn’t hungry, I didn’t want any cake or candy, and I actually ENJOYED myself.
The weather was beautiful – beyond beautiful. There was a slight breeze, and it was warm enough to be comfortable in or out of the shade. I even got a little sun.
I’ll weigh in Monday morning – but a big test of how the plan is working will be when I put on my suit for church in the morning. Will it be tight or will it fit right? We shall see…
