I was supposed to write an article on yogurt varieties, but I had to work late and didn’t have time.  Thus I am working on it now and should have it done tomorrow night.

As I said I had to work late today, and was beginning to feel the pangs of hunger so I grabbed a handful of mixed nuts which helped quell the urge to eat something bad.  The last couple of days have been harder than last week, but I think I am coming out of my funk and am getting excited about the next couple of days.

So today was accidentally a good day.

My workout at the gym was harder than yesterday… and I realized when I got home it was because I was running more than I should be at this point in the couch-to-5k program.

I should be alternating between 90 seconds of running and 2 minutes of walking but I had mentally flipped it and was running for 2 minutes and walking for 90 seconds.

The amount I ended up running is somewhere between week 2 and week 3. So lets call it week 2.5… I will finish this week running the 2.5 program and step it up to week 3 next week.

It should be easier transitioning to week 3 than anticipated.

After the gym I went to the store to get ingredients for carrot ginger soup. In the Mollie Stone’s parking lot I talked to a guy from Vespa on the phone and set an appointment for my second interview(tomorrow at 10:30 a.m.) which I am really excited about.

It’s easier to get out of bed in the morning these days because I know that I will weigh less than I did the previous day. I love getting up in the morning, hopping on the scale and watching the numbers drop.

As of right now I have lost 3 pounds more than the goal I had set for March 1st.
