View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day

I give yesterday's eating a C. I wanted to snack on everything yesterday, I was in a very munchy mood. The good thing is that I logged as I ate and it stopped me from going crazy over, just a little over. Yesterday work was stressful and this was probably the main trigger and it is also almost that time of the month for me which makes it a little worse.

Still at 227.75, Glad to maintain. Hopefully for the week I will see a 1-2 pound loss. Slow and steady is my motto right now. I just think it would be great to get through the holiday season without gaining!

This morning was my first Tempo run since training for the half marathon. I have sure enjoyed the 3-4 mile easy runs during the week! This morning was a 2 mile warm up and then 2x2 miles at tempo pace (10:15-10:30). Well I barely made the 10:30 pace it was a tough run BUT I feel so good today. I have tons of energy! Tomorrow is a 6-8 mile run!!! Luckily it is at an easy pace and my neighbor is going to join me for the last 3 miles.

My oldest daughter Clara needed some new jeans and she has had the best of luck finding jeans at goodwill. We went and got 4 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of athlectic pants, 2 sweaters, 1 shirt, A Tommy Hilfigure windbreaker pull over (only $4.00, I have been wanting one forever, not necessarily TH, but they are always $60ish so I would never pick on up), A fleece jacket and Another light jacket for layering.....ALL this for $40.00. It is hard to find 1 or 2 pairs of jeans for $40.00. We were so happy. I cannot get Elizabeth to buy into goodwill, she thinks ewwwww, but she is my Diva. Clara is my thrifty girl. It takes all kinds for this world:)

Today at work I have almost hit my sugar and carb limit. There was this cake (but I only had 1 piece). Tonight the goal is just protien and some kind of veggie!

Nice job on the tempo run and focusing on how you felt even if the pace was tough to hit. :y: It's all about keeping it in perspective, isn't it?

I love shopping at Goodwill. I've gotten some really nice clothes and furniture. My mom is always finding designer purses that look like new.
