You would think that changing your eating habits would get a little easier in week 2 right? Yeah, me too. But sadly, that was not the case. It seemed like temptation was everywhere this week but I managed to keep my cravings in check – even though I probably would’ve killed for a Cherry Pepsi. Overall, I’d say this was a pretty good week.

What I did: This week I slacked a bit on my workouts at the end of the week, but still did some Zumba and other cardio exercises. I was also able to go for a run outside for the first time since last year. One of my goals this year is to run an entire 5K this year – no walking! But judging by how hard this outdoor run was, we’ll see. I did 2.2 miles in 32.53 minutes for a 14.55 min/mi. Not great, but it’s a start!
I also signed up for a membership at Planet Fitness – a new gym that will be opening by me next month. So, even though I can’t use the membership yet, my good intentions should count for something since I fully intend to be there in April!
Challenges: I went out to eat a lot this week. The Olive Garden for my sister’s birthday, The Lucky Monk with a friend, Champps Americana with my daughter, and attended a birthday party. Can you believe that I still managed to eat right, even when dining out?!?! Yeah – me either, but I totally did! YAY!
