Reality Check

I've been so well intentioned. Now it's time to truly act on those intentions. My race - the big one I've been aiming at - is in 70 days. Wow. I've worked out a schedule that will have me READY for the 5k. Today I ran another 3k, part of the "week 1" training. I am quickly realizing it is a lot harder to run when it's cold out. (It's 41, but feels like 37) I'll have to do some research. I've also realized I've been spending too much time at work. But I guess that's not anything new - ask anyone who knows me, however- it NEEDS to change. I've set the alarm on my phone to go off at 4pm to Shoo me out the door. (I still won't get home until 5, since I have an hour commute). I figure I really need to train outside since this 5k is an outdoor race, and I prefer to run in daylight, so as the days get shorter and shorter, I need to get home sooner and sooner.

I saw two deer on my run again today. They rather startled me. I kept hearing leaves rustling behind me and for the first few times I assumed it was the person that had just run past me going the other way, but then they were getting closer and closer - like someone was approaching. But whenever I'd look there would be no one there. Finally I looked INTO the woods and there was a doe and her fawn coming toward me - rather quickly. Then they headed across the path and into the woods on the other side. COOL. =)

What else is new? Not much. My food has been a roller coaster. Sabotage on every corner. But today has been great:
Breakfast- protein shake
Lunch- 2 pieces of papa johns, a 100 calorie rice krispy treat, and a mini bag of pretzels.
After School Snack - A slimfast breakfast bar
Dinner- 6in Chicken Sub on wheat, bag of baked BBQ lays, and a bag of sliced apples (Subway)
Plus I'm currently drinking my gatorade.

I need some support. A buddy. Someone to keep me honest and on task. I'm trying to think of who would be a good support on THIS side of the continent!!

I guess that's it for now. Time for a shower then i'm going to hit the stores looking for Halloween Costume Accessories and GROCERIES. I'm sick of living in a house with NOTHING GOOD to eat. (And I mean GOOD in the GOOD/HEALTHY way).

Today's Run:

New Favorite Picture- I finally got some pictures back from my Birthday party and some other outings. I'll post a link to them as soon as I upload them. But here's one I really like :)

Best $1.99 ever spent

Hello!! Wow it's been awhile. I'm sorry.
Life has been crazy as ever once school started. I'm getting things back on track now. I'm so out of it I didn't even realize the new Biggest Loser Season had started!!! So - my $1.99 was to download the first episode to my iTunes. I watched it - and in fact finished the episode while running on the treadmill. That was 2 weeks ago.
That week was crazy as I got ready to go to see NKOTB in concert as well as photograph my college roommate's wedding in Niagara Falls. Last week I spent getting ready for a Birthday Golf Outing for... well.. ME. Last Saturday was my 30th birthday. It was great. I'll post some pictures soon of all my latest endeavors really soon.
On the weight loss front things are ok. I mean my weight has fluctuated - but not too badly. As I was getting re-inspired by the Biggest Loser I joined their website. You can check out my profile there:

I'm going to be updating this site much better. I NEED to.
Thanks for checking in on me.
Talk to you all real soon!!!
