I am finally feeling a little better. I think I am going to jog for the first time tomorrow morning. I have not exercised since last Thursday, since I got this aweful cold. My body was just not up to it and I listened to it!

This week, since I have not been able to exercise (and I miss those extra exercise calories!), I have been focusing on my eating. I am documenting everything and I have been staying in the 1,800 calorie range....I should be in the 1,600 calorie range but I am hungry...

Yesterday was not a green check day. I was just sooo tired yesterday. My boday just hurt everywhere. I even skipped my workout.....which I never do! I love to work out. Unfortunately I ate too many sweets.....I'm sure trying to boost my energy. I went to bed at 8:30pm last night and I feel much better. I will take another day off of exercise today and hit the road tomorrow morning. I am running with a real good friend....I think we are going to go for 7 miles. I did get new running shoe...
