Did it. Proof in is in the pictures.

I left work at 3 today because I felt like crap. Tired, bloated, just blech. I know its because of all the crap I’ve been eating since Sunday night. I haven’t been overeating but I have been eating way, way too many processed carbs. I know they wreak havoc on my blood sugar, I know I will feel like crap, I know I gain water/sodium weight and yet I still do it. I am insane.

I came home, and all I wanted to do was fall into bed and sleep all night. I could easily have done that. I told myself I would do the 45 minutes “later”. I got undressed and looked at the treadmill. I *knew* I wouldn’t do it later. So…I put on my running shoes and just did it. I watched an episode of House while walking and although the time did not fly by – it was pretty quick.  And when I was done – wow – I felt so much better! I was a hot, sweaty mess but I felt energized and happy and better than I have felt in the last three days.  A hot shower and my favourite shower gel and I am practically a new person!!! 




45 minutes and 1.71 miles. My goal is to get up to 2 miles in 45 minutes.







Me – hot, sweaty mess but feeling great.


  1. Yay! You made a great choice!!! Also, I have an award for you on my blog!

  2. Enz...thats such a shame about the get-together timing :(

    If for some reason you happen to go out on the Saturday instead, then totally come...otherwise we will definitely do it again.

  3. Yay for getting the exercise in!

    As for the get together - it does suck! :( Could you maybe join up with us later on - even for an hour?

    If not, I'd still love to go for that walk on the weekend. Either the Thursday evening or perhaps the Sunday morning.

  4. Way to kick butt!! Your doing awesome!!

    I have an award over at my blog for you!!

  5. That's awesome timing, Enz! Keep it up! :)

  6. that is beyond terrific! Good for you! Being honest with yourself is the bes thing you can do!
