Obviously, I was a little excited.
Unfortunately, I think I may have hit it a bit too hard - my sore-ish throat came back Wednesday and I had a slight fever again. RAWR. My appetite is back in full swing though, but I attribute that to the fact that it's the most wonderful time of the month at my house this week. Yay. :-/
The deal I gave myself for not going to the gym last night is that I didn't get ice cream after dinner and I'm going to start a Couch 2 5K program with my friend Stacye today! She's in Ohio so we won't be running together, per se - but she's been such a huge motivator to keep me going with this whole thing that I can't wait to motivate her too! I really hope to be able to run a 5K by the spring. How cool would that be? ME! Running a 5K! Yeah, we'll see if it happens.
Speaking of that - I've set a few goals for myself. I don't think that starting out on a journey of any substance can be successful without goals. So here goes:
- Run in the St. Patty's Day 5K in Jackson
- Get back under 200 by Halloween
- Get to 190 by 2012
- Eat fried foods no more than 2x/week
- Try every veggie in the produce section at Kroger
