A weekend of calm
focus on fitness, not on food.

Boy did I have my britches in a bunch last week. It was a rough time. Luckily, the fiance and I had one of the greatest weekends of all time.
Friday, got home, and ran four miles. I made it through the whole thing chanting, "I can do well for myself today." I didn't stop, I didn't drop to a walk on any parts of the hills. On the way back I even said to myself, I'm going to smile and enjoy this. AND I DID!!!!!!! I got home and felt like a new person.
Really, I think, being able to run four miles without stopping is a huge achievement. Doing it with a smile is something I never thought I'd do. So I enjoyed my weekend immensely.
We tried the bbq from the place we're having cater the wedding (show-stoppingly good). I drank beer and wine, had pie for dinner on Sunday. The fiance and I actually ran out to the lake and jumped in last night at 9 PM. It was awesome.
I did not freak out about food once. And my goal is to run 2-3 times a week, 4 miles each time. If I can do that, I can eat whatever I want. I'm still going to trend raw during the week, but I'm going to focus on exercise, not on diet for these last two months. Whatever I do, if I can run 12 miles a week, nothing's going to make me look bad.
Supplementing with light lifting, and hopefully some swimming soon!
