Lite on the training heavy on the eating

Well the title pretty much says it all. While I have been exercising, I've not spent any time to speak of either swimming or biking. It was my goal to exercise every day in November for at least 15 minutes. So I've done a bit of yoga, some Taebo DVD's, strength training and running. My running mileage is way down. Only 26.9 miles this not so good. I've had such a hard time with the idea of going out to run at 5am when it is so darn cold. Friday though I did do a bit of an HIIT run at the rec center in the morning and that worked pretty well so I will continue to do that. So while my mileage may be lower I think this will help a lot with my speed and endurance. I'm kind of following the Body for Life recommendations. I'm still looking at the strength training plan but think I will try to follow it also and see what happens. At any rate so far I've only missed 2 days of exercise this month. I feel pretty good about that.

My food has just been out of control...I'm not even going to get on that scale and see the bad news. Just try to get back on track.

I'm struggling with food too right now! What helps me when I feel like I've "blown" it is that I don't have to wait for a certain calendar date or day of the week to get back on track. The next meal is my next chance to make a better choice and I can always drink a glass of water right this very minute! Good job on your consistency with working out. That's what I need to do!

Well it is the small victories that lead to major wins - and working out for at least 15 min every day (bar 2) is pretty darn amazing!!
