Today was a jogging day, and I did the best I could... which was REALLY hard because it felt like it dropped twenty degrees, AND it was very windy! I got a lot of cold air in my lungs, which hurt after a while! But I finished both my walking laps and my jogging lap. I had to walk and catch my breath four times on the jogging lap, but each time wasn't for too long.
But when I realized that I wasn't going to catch my breath only THREE times, I wanted to give it up and walk the rest of the way back to the house... It was disappointing in several regards. One, that I couldn't go as far as I did on Wednesday, and Two, that I would want to give up after that little bit of disappointment! It's sort of disheartening to realize just how ingrained my bad habits and negativity are. I made myself do that last jog section, and it lasted for a good five minutes! Whew! I finished the jogging lap! Yay! Today, that was a victory in and of itself.
I had leftovers for lunch, but apparently it wasn't enough because I was hungry again within an hour... and by that time I had gotten out the chocolate chips and sugary baking items for an experiment... And I figured that if I didn't eat something I would start scarfing down all the sweets I was making... so I grabbed a blueberry yogurt and ate that for a snack...
My baking experiment today was peppermint fudge...
The middle of mine are pink because I think peppermint ought to be pink or red.
I did eat a teaspoon full of the chocolate fudge that I scraped off the side of the pot, but right after I ate it I said out loud, "That wasn't worth it." I kind of surprised myself with that.
The fudge has to sit in the refridgerator for quite a while, so I had my first piece after dinner.
It was pretty good! I wanted to eat more, but I stopped with the inch square piece... although since it was in the corner it was a little bit curved...
I've been trying really hard to behave today...
and I successfully finished my jogging lap
Successfully burned over 500 calories (I was 33 away after my walk and jog, so I just had to add a few exercises to get over that 500)
Successfully resisted the chips, the dip, the soda, the pie, the cookies, and the toffee.
Successful baking experiment completed
And the laundry got done, too!
So trying really hard today... has some awesome results!
Thanks for stopping by!
