We are home from today’s Easter Egg Hunt.Â We had a great day.Â Several of my family members were able to come down, including my little sister and her husband, who ran a 10K this morning!Â Wow.Â That’s 6.2 miles.
I also did a bit of running – .5 miles to be exact.Â 🙂
My goal is to be able to run a mile, without stopping, by the end of the month.Â 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.Â I sat down, and I ate SLOWLY.Â Very, very slowly.Â (On a ‘normal’ day, I can eat three hot dogs in about 2 minutes. Or four.)Â After eating half of the hot dog, I began to feel full.Â I ate a few chips, took a sip of water, and went to toss the football and hang with some friends.Â About 20 minutes later, I came back, slowly ate what was left of the hot dog, drank some soda, and I was finished.Â I wasn’t hungry, I didn’t want any cake or candy, and I actually ENJOYED myself.
The weather was beautiful – beyond beautiful.Â There was a slight breeze, and it was warm enough to be comfortable in or out of the shade.Â 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.Â Will it be tight or will it fit right?Â We shall see…
