Greek yogurt mix-ins.
I heat up blueberries with a little bit of water in a suace pan (this works even better if they are frozen. In a few minutes they become more of a syrup with out having to add suger or any other ingrediants. Then when I stir it into the yogurt it mixes like a dream.

Half Marathon in 2 weeks
Have you been training with a specific program? Often the week or two before runners taper to help with their endurance. On the programs I have worked on my longest run two weeks out was 8 miles with the other runs being between 3-5 and on the week of the race my longest run was 4 miles with the others at 2-3.

Can you get a day pass to a gym and use a treadmill? Don't run outside if it is unsafe

I need some help with this and I don't really have anywhere else to turn!
when you change your lifestyle and start to see positive results it feels great. Savor the positive changes and bast in your own well deserved glow. Be patient with your friends and family, it will take them longer to see the change. You are very familiar with your body so it is going to be super obvious- but to the masses it will take time. Don't let anyone stop you. Your victories are yours and no one elses

What is the weirdest or funniest thing...
My commutes on the subway are much less comfortable now that I have less cushion to sit on. THAT was a startling day. I can live with it though Smile

any people who are not tempted?
I have foods I no longer eat that I used to love. i think part of this was me changing how I thought about food. Some foods I will always love, such a pizza or cake. But now when I see them I see the breakdown of how much of my daily allowance it takes up and how long I would have to work at the gym. Usually that stops me from an impluse snack. I would rather plan for it and get really, really good pizza or a really well made. Something that is worth it. A brick oven pizza with real ingredients is so much better then a 5.99 delivery pizza.

A couple years ago I struggled with my break up with McDonalds. It was right next to my train inviting me on my walk home. So, whenever I indulged, I would make myself really think about how I felt AFTER I ate everything. How did I feel 20 minutes later? How did I feel an hour later. No that great.

Now I have to walk into McDonalds all the time to use my Credit Union atm. I honestly don't consider eating anything. It makes me feel terrible and the caloric debt is catastrophic.
