one more day to go...

I actually did it this morning. I ran.

Can you believe it???

Truth be told, it was only for a minute or two, but it was running none-the-less.

I started out a few minutes early this morning to go join the girls to walk. But being as we were meeting at this one lady's house who lives only about a mile and a half from my home, I decided to walk to her house. I figured it would take me a half hour to walk there, but if I walk/ran I could make it in 15 or 20 minutes. So that's what I did. I actually only ran for just a minute or two and walked the rest of the way, but hey. Then when I got there, we walked for the regular hour and I asked one of the girls to give me a ride home because if I would have walked back, I would have never had time to get ready for work in time. Not to mention, I was pooped!

So I think I'm going to do the same thing tomorrow and then by Friday, I'll be able to pick it back up and do more running and less walking.

So the day started off great!

I skipped breakfast, though. Ugh! That's the most horrible thing I could have possibly done. I'm sure to gain at least a pound today because of it. I had some cubed cheese half way through the morning just to satisfy the hunger pangs but I'm sure that was worse then just going hungry.

But for lunch, I was good. Soup and salad only.

Now for dinner, I'm going to make chicken strips, grilled with scallions and diced tomatoes and have a baked potato with it.

Well, I better get cooking.

Cara COOKING! Those two words just don't look right in the same sentence. Wow, I'm impressed.

Hey, one minute is better than none minutes. Can't wait until you post tonight to hear about the run this morning. I could still call and sing to you, ya know.
