Moment of Weakness & Treadmill Run

I was running on the treadmill this morning and I knew I really needed to get in a good run. I needed to because 1)we didn't run on Saturday & I only ran 30 minutes instead of 60 & 2) last night when I was at the grocery store I had a bad moment of weakness. I can't believe I'm actually going to admit this but, I ended up buying a maple-glazed donut & a large Snickers ice cream bar. Ahh! How bad am I! So pathetic! I'm driving home eating a donut & then the Snickers bar. I couldn't believe what I was doing. Usually I would fall for one or the other, but both, that's just sick! Please, tell me you girls have moments of weakness too, right? I felt so gross afterwards.

Anyway, so I knew from eating all those calories right before going to bed was not good and I needed to work them off!! I could only go for 45 minutes on the treadmill so I wanted to really push myself. Well, it was really hard b/c I didn't have water & I felt weak. But, I was really okay, just like any normal run besides the no water. The funny thing about it was I think everyone around me thought I was gong to pass out.You know how I turn cherry red from working out & if I exert myself a lot, it gets even redder. So, I know that I was extremely red, sweating a lot and probably breathing loud. The guy beside me kept on looking over very concerned and when I got off I swear everyone was watching me hobble out of the cardio room. I am probably exaggerating but you know those moments when it feels like everyone is watching you, that's how I felt.

I guess those are some of the many struggles along the way to taking on this marathon. I have eaten a lot better today so hopefully I don't blow it tonight!

Wait... so not only are we running (ta death), we're watching what we eat? What's this about?? I guess my bowl of ice cream for breakfast everyday and 10 cookies at lunch needs to stop ;o)

PS K-money, why is your phone not working?
