Sunday Night Check In

So as requested (by Colette) i'm posting..

So things have been pretty good since switching to 26pts. It's funny you wouldn't think going down only 2pts would make a difference (on your food intake) but I find myself cutting out one extra treat a day to make sure I don't do nuts with my points. I think my weight is shifting a bit, but today was the first morning of a little bit lower # (226.0) so we'll see what Mr. scale has to say tomorrow morning.

On the exersize front it's been going good! Last week I ran a total of 9miles and walked for 50min. When dh came home sat I insisted on me being able to go to the gym. This was at supper time, if you are like me my energy levels just get lower and lower as the day goes on... so I was not super pumped to go, but I also don't want to go 2 days in a row with out working out.. so I made myself and of course felt great afterwards. I ran 3miles in 40min. No record but I sweated a ton and felt good and it's been YEARS since i've been able to run no-stop that long. I earn 10-12 Ap's each run, which really is ALOT! Now the effort will be to find a sitter for tomorrow so I can go..the child care is cloesed as we have a holiday on the 1st (Canada Day, yay Canada!) so alot of buisnesses just close for the monday too... hubby's working so not sure if I will get a work out in or not...Also we are having a Canada DAy BBQ so I want to do as much as I can tomorrow so the 1st isn't too hecktic... but we'll see.

And my last thought... I had a NSV today, someone FINALLY noticed I've been losing weight. Serioulsy this is the first comment since starting last June! But it felt nice none the same!

(i'm too tired to spell check; sorry)

Girl you are doing so good. I am amazed at how your able to run so far without stoping. I wish I had your stamania. Unfortunately I am still being plagued by that foot problem that seems to NEVER go away. So I have some good days (I can walk 3 miles on those days) and I have some bad days ( I limp alot and ride bikes or workout on the home gym) Either way I have not given up and thats what I like about you Lara....you don't give up!!
You Go Girl!!!!
