choggatt's Journal, 28 December 2012

Little indulgences can add up to a few pounds pretty quickly. And I FEEL so much different - more sluggish, tired, sick with a cold, and craving sugar. Not a good thing. Now my focus is back to my healthier low-carb lifestye and running regimen.

I am going cold turkey to stop consuming sugar again, with my husband's help (he's not looking forward to my possible less-than-enthusiastic response when he brings the cookie in my hand to my attention). I want to get back to the state of my body recognizing when I have had too much. I like to have a clear head, strong and healthy body, and mental discipline.

I have signed up for my 2nd half marathon, having run my first and only race last September. I am so proud that I trained and ran 13.1 miles. Running helps me practice self-discipline, relieve stress, focus some time on myself, and feel strong and healthy. Signing up for races makes me set a goal and get into a training regimen.

It's important for me to understand myself and feel good about being my best. I will take time for myself every day, even if it's just 30 minutes to run or 10 minutes to meditate.
