I’m still on track for losing weight but today was a new day for me! Today I actually got out of the house and went to the local high school to do my first workout using Jeff Galloway’s 5k App on my phone! Plus I love having the idea of Jeff Galloway talking to me to encourage me to keep going. It’s nice not having to hear the lady on the other apps say “it’s time to run now, go” and me feeling bad if I didn’t run at all! I feel really good now that I’ve done this. Tomorrow is my break but Thursday is my second day for week 1. I can’t wait to do that workout. I ran several times during the walk/run but the one thing that I’m struggling with this go round is the shin splints! If anyone knows how to get rid of them please let me know. I think I’m going to have to break down and go get a new pair of sneakers after all. I didn’t want to and thought I could wear the ones I have had for a year (and no I wasn’t wearing them the entire time, more or less I was wearing my flip flops and crocs before). But nope it looks like it’s going to have to be new shoes time for me.
Today was a much better day eating wise too. I started back to taking antidepressants because I knew that it was definitely time to. I just couldn’t get out of bed and I was always hungry. Big sign there but I didn’t want to believe it. I didn’t want to go to the doctor to tell him it’s time to go back on them but yesterday I knew I had to. Today was my 2nd day taking them and I didn’t lay in bed all day long, I actually got out of bed, took a shower and went out for a walk/run! Big step for me there. Plus I haven’t been eating much either which is wonderful because I notice that I’m more of an emotional eater and so I’m ready to drop the poundage again!
