And the day started so well.


Sunrise on the surface of one of Saturn's moon. That's what this picture reminds me of. I really wish I could see a sunrise like that here. I am so tired of the cold. It was much warmer last night and today but it's still a little chilly. I want a warm Hawaiian day with tradewinds and everything.

So I got up this morning and jumped on the treadmill. I did 35 minutes at a really good pace. I read in Runner's World that you shouldn't run under 4.5 mph; you just don't burn enough calories and in fact you may burn less. So I walked at around 3.8 and really worked up a sweat. Then I ate well all day. Then I got home :( I ate about 1/4 bag of Cheez-Its and a good sized dinner. Oh yeah, and then a muffin for dessert. Tomorrow is weigh-in day, this may get ugly!!

I have a really clear vision of what I want to look like though (and I think it's completly doable). I tried to link it here but screwed it up completely. But I know what I want now; really know. I have worked the last 2 days on formulating a training schedule. I'm still doing Bob Greene's 12 week makeover but I'm starting serious running.

Well, I've had enough. I think I'm off to bed.......
