I am still doing very well with no sugar junk food. Haven't caved in once. My sodium intake is not getting any better, and I haven't tracked my food for a long time. I am trying to be more concious and make healthy choices though, so hopefully once March Break is over I can get back to a normal routine and get back to tracking. I haven't run since last Wednesday for a number of reasons. My tail bone was very sore, I felt like so much running had aggravated it. I was feeling very drained, not sick, but like something was coming on. Then, the daylight savings messed with my sleep, getting to sleep at a decent time has been a huge challenge. I will get back to running, it will help with my sleep I think, and eating better won't hurt either!

I am doing well with my sugar intake, so far I am 11 days in. Also, I am 4 days in a row of tracking and in range. My weight bumped up a bit today, but not because I overate. I track my sodium, and it is through the roof for the last 4 days now. I think I will make that my next focus. So, providing my tracking is 7 days strong, starting Wednesday, I will place more focus on my sodium intake. I am resting today, I had planned to do my long run, but something came up and I was unable to run today. I will get up early tomorrow and get it done, it is going to be 25K, should take me a few hours at least. I am honestly scared for it, after my long run last week ending with such exhaustion, and 25K being 15 miles, 2.75 miles more than last weeks. I will do my best, and try to enjoy it too.

I was offered (possibly) a chance to participate in the race I started training for back in October and was unable to register for before it got full. Somebodies brother broke his ankle two days after registering, and if he still has his "ticket", I am going to take it and participate! I am sooooooooooooooo totally excited. It is two weeks before the 1/2 marathon I am registered for, but I plan to do both. I really hope the ticket is mine. I wait with baited breath, and will let you know as soon as I do!

Today is Day 7 of no sugar for me! I am feeling really good about it. I had a very emotional day today, and many times I wanted to eat the tray of fudge in my fridge which is intended for my kidlets. I resisted, and honestly, it wasn't as hard as it has been in the past. I was actually looking forward to my lunch of eggs and toast, and kinda craving it even!
Anyway, onto new challenges, I am going to work very hard for the next 7 days to track my calories and stay in range. I had been planning this to start on Sunday, but it didn't happen yet, so I am starting tomorrow for sure! You are all my witnesses, and I will hold myself accountable. Gotta earn more goodies from my treasure box!

No sugar again today, and only a very minor headache tonight. My long run today was supposed to be 11 miles. I had it set up on my Garmin, all I had to do was press start. Then, after warm up, it beeped at me to slow down, I had my speed zone set for Fast Walk! I wanted a jog, so after having already completed .27 mile, I stopped the workout and started again. After 1 mile, I tried to turn on the backlight and instead turned off the whole unit! I had to restart the run again, and ended up running 12.27 miles today instead of 11. It was the most horrible run I have ever done. I kept saying to myself "Just run to get it done". My feet were hurting, my hip was screaming, my hamstrings were cramping up, and the snow on the sidewalks forced me onto the road a lot. Then, with 1.5 miles left to go, I talked my exhausted self into finishing it off with the promise that I could collapse as soon as I got in the house. When the beep came to indicate cool down, I was done in about 2 minutes, literally crawled up the 3 stairs to my front door, got in the front door and promptly collapsed on the floor. It took me about 5-10 minutes of not moving before I could start to take off my water belts, my Garmin, my shoes and socks etc. I have never felt so drained in my entire life, even after having given birth twice! Boy was I glad to have that run done. Next time I run 11 miles, I will run 11 MILES! A couple of times during the run I questioned my own sanity and honestly wondered if it was really wise to register for a half marathon after all! I know that my next long run will go better, I am definitely not giving up.
