Great start. This morning I was up at 6am running 4.5 miles, but boy did my body complain. Usually I run every other day and give my body a day to rest in between, but I’ve been running 3 days in a row now. I think, depending on how I feel tomorrow morning I will rest tomorrow and do my planned 6.2 mile run on Sunday, just to give my body a break.

The weekend: Dinner with some friends and a movie tonight. Dinner will be at a sushi place, so I will eat before I go and enjoy edamame, seaweed salad, and tea at the restaurant. Tomorrow night is a little more challenging, as we are going to a formal Ball with a sit-down dinner. I’ll probably eat before we go and just have whatever veggies come on my plate during dinner. Covering my plate with my napkin when I’m done eating usually does the trick to keep me from nibbling until it’s picked up. Getting up to dance or socialize as soon as I’m done will also be a good strategy. Sparkling water or diet soda are my friends, because alcohol is not a good partner for dieting – it’s packed full of useless calories, and it lowers my inhibitions which induces me to stray and care less about what I eat.
So that’s my plan for today and tomorrow. What’s yours?
