New Week, Fresh Start

I took the week off of running and my eating has been out of control!

On my run today, Becky and I talked about goals we can set to help us be successful with our eating.  When we feel like eating tons, even if we know we aren't hungry, we came up with an escape plan.

1) Write about it.  Even if it's just using our phone.  Maybe writing out why we are having these impulses will help curb them.

2) Drink water.  Maybe we are just thirsty.  I also bought some of the powder flavor to put in my water.  I've really started getting tired of chugging down plain water.

3) Eat a healthy alternative.  If all else fails, find something else to eat that is healthy.  Fruits, veggies, salad, whatever.  Just not a whole bag of chips (hypothetically).

My run today went pretty well.  It was the first run in a week and I felt a little rusty.  We kept a comfortable pace and walked a couple of times.
The weather was perfect, though!

Before the run, I was hoping not to die.
Today's splits
So, hopefully following our steps to avoid binging will help us.  And we have a plan to run together this week.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I'm spending the rest of the night watching Jem and the Holograms.  Remember them?
