Perfect to describe yesterday.  After writing yesterday's post, I realized that I shouldn't run. My plans called for starting on Sunday and if I ran yesterday I would screw up my plan before it even started.  So I didn't run.  I thought I would play some Wii during the day and do some schoolwork and maybe even some housework.  Not so much.  I was really hungry in the morning so I ate while I was writing my post.  Within an hour I was hungry again, so I made breakfast.  That didn't seem to do it so I had a snack about an hour later. Then Hubby came home with the pizza I had been craving.  I wasn't hungry right then so I waited a couple of hours before eating it.  The problem was once I started on it I could not stop.  I ended up eating approximately 20 points of pizza. Then it laid in my stomach all afternoon - nice.  I initially thought that I wouldn't eat dinner but the pizza was not moving just laying there, so I had a little dinner hoping to get the food moving again. It worked and I actually felt much better.  However, I'm sure I ate about 35 points yesterday and I don't really want to count them.  So I am thinking of changing my starting day to Sunday.  I don't know, I'll think about it today. 

So today it begins.  I have created a calendar with my running schedule on it. I have been wrapping my mind around the 4 runs a week.  I have been thinking and trying to set it into my brain.  I found that really works best for  me.  Instead of thinking that I have to run on Monday night, I think to myself, Monday night is running night.  It then becomes just something I do like walking the dogs or cleaning the bird room or feeding the animals. So I'm off to get ready for my first run.  5 miles is on the agenda and I know that I can do it.
