Day 214 - 218, New Year

It felt like a long, long week.

I was very tired this week and came down with a cold on Thursday morning. It all seemed to catch up to me this morning when I just felt like I'd been run over by a truck. A combination of lack of sleep, eating a too heavy restaurant meal last night, dehydration, fighting a cold and TOM conspired to make me just want to stay in bed.

I eventually got up and went and weighed in....up 1.3 lbs. I'm not too worried, like I said  - TOM and a heavy restaurant meal the night before weigh in definitely contributed to the gain and I know it will be gone by next week.

Me and two friends, after WK1D1 of C25K
I napped this afternoon and although I had plans for Wk3D3 of C25K, I really didn't feel like doing it, but having a partner to do it with definitely makes a huge difference, so off we went. Week 3 is now done and Week 4 starts tomorrow night.  Week 4 is new territory for me and involves total jogging time of 16 minutes out of 31 and also 5 minute intervals. Keep your fingers crossed for me!  I have another friend who started Couch25K this week. Go Shelley!!!

Food wise, this past week was a carb fest - also normal this week of the month - and it was mostly whole wheat bread, which is a huge improvement over ice cream and cookies.  With the exception of last night's meal at the Pickle Barrel, my meals were balanced and healthy.

Tomorrow is prep for the week ahead. Not sure what that will look like just yet. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Feel better soon and congrats on starting week 4, I've never gone that far...yet

  2. Feel better!

    So nice that you have company for your C25K!

  3. The Pickle Barrel sounds like a good place, I love good pickles!

  4. Looking awesome!
    Good times - even the carb fest is good!

  5. Hi Enz! I do follow you, but haven't been over here lately because Blogger doesn't seem to put your posts up on my reader list.

    It doesn't put my posts up either--only one of mine for the last 10 or so posts. I sure wish it did. And I'm trying to figure out why. But I'll just remember to pop over here by myself until I figure this problem out. :S

    :-) Marion
