Eating went well yesterday.  I didn't cave and indulge in the myriad of snacks that are always laying around my work. That victory is even sweeter because my coworkers were indulging around me!   I ate more for dinner but then dropped my planned ice cream snack.  All was good.

I've already got today's food planned out.  Just need to stick with the plan!!!  I've got this!!!   No more sitting at the same weight!  No more wasting time!!!  

My run went well yesterday.   My legs hurt and my mind screamed at me to stop, but I kept going and had a nice fast (for me) run with and average mile pace of 12:47. Awesome!!  It was stinking cold though...  32 degrees with a windchill of 20.  Brrrrrrr.     Oh's only the first few steps....the first tenth of a mile that's truly horrible in terms of being cold.   After I get running I'm comfortable!     I don't have 'cold weather' running clothes's a layer game.  It works...and I'm planning on dropping weight and needing new clothes soon....I'm not wasting my money...layers work just fine.  When I get to my goal weight, I will revisit the possibility of investing money in winter running /exercise gear.

Zumba was fun, as usual.  I was a bit sore, tired and achy all day (after my run).  I was concerned about completing Zumba...but once there and started, I was fine and was able to kick it!   

Tonight is marked a Zumba night, however I'm going to ride the exercise bike today instead.  My foot was bothering me a bit I'm going to give it a rest from high impact activities......and I have a run scheduled tomorrow.  :-).   (No worries, my health is more important than my workout schedule...if the foot be ones an issue, I will rework the whole blasted schedule to remove running and admit temporary defeat on the running front as I move to lower impact activities!)

Great job eating well! We finally had our first really chilly morning here (I am in Florida). I love it, but at the same time, I don't go running when it's cold, even though I love cold weather!

I layer for my runs in cold weather, because if I'm out there for more than a couple miles, inevitably I end up getting warm and take a jacket off.

Hurray for a good eating day!

I have such a hard time running in the cold!! Layers are what I do too!! Hope your foot feels better soon!!

I am trying to go with only running every other day to avoid more foot pain. It's hard on the weekend for me though because that is 2 (or 3) days of being able to run outside without worrying about the damn sun setting. I have yet to start doing zumba again.

You know what guys, I actually prefer running in the cold. My best times seem to be happening in miserable conditions lol.
