I have also exercised at least 8 of those days. Yesterday I actually thought I'd try running again, and I made it a little more than a mile (13 minutes). Not bad after being away from it for about 5 weeks. I made it 16 minutes tonight, so maybe I might actually be on the right road. I keep thinking that I will feel better if I just stick with it.
So this week and next---no Coke, no eating after 7:30 pm as much as possible, no Hot Tamale candies, and up the running to 3 times a week for 20 minutes.
If you see me on the "get in better shape"highway try not to run me over, especially if you are running faster and getting in shape sooner, just wave and smile and know you'll always be better at it than me.
