So, I'm learning I can't just wing this. It's hard work to stick to a diet and a workout routine. I knew this, but I feel like I'm learning it again. Funny how that works. And when I don't stick to the diet, I sure do know it on Monday morning when I step on the scale. So, this week I will stick to the diet, which means really thinking about portions and choosing the foods which are on the diet.
On the upside, my clothes are starting to fit differently. For instance, I wore one of my favorite shirts today and instead of pulling around my belly and waist, it totally hung really nice and cute. I felt like I looked skinnier, because the shirt was hanging right.
The running feels good. On Saturday, T.T. and I ran the Swamp Trail at Theodore Roosevelt Island, which is part of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. I loved it. The Swamp Trail is part dirt/mud/rock/log trail and part wooden bridge through the swampy part of the island. It's beautiful and has great views of Georgetown, the Kennedy Center and DC. We ran the loop twice and finished in 35 minutes.
So the battle continues, one pound and one step at a time.
