I'll admit, I'm a little discouraged. I do have a few days where things just get too busy to exercise or keep track of calories, but for the most part I really have been so good about everything. And yesterday I went on two walks--both about an hour each--and Bryan and I went running and I ate a good amount, but I definitely burned more calories than I took in... and I still came out at 129.4 this morning. Bah. I did make it down to 128.something last week, but things got crazy with a big Relief Society Christmas day I was in charge of and by the end of the week I was back up to 130 again, even though I really am not entirely sure why.
Despite/because of all this, I have raised my goals a little. Instead of running 3 times a week I am now going to try and go running 5 times this week. And I'm going to try and go on at least 1, maybe 2 walks a day whenever I can. And, as always, I try to burn more calories than I take in, while--of course--still eating a healthy amount of the things my body needs. I don't starve myself.
But anyway, I really am getting worried about whether or not I'll actually be able to meet my goal by Christmas. If I do it will definitely be because of Divine Intervention. Because, clearly, my efforts alone are not cutting it.
Oh, and before I forget (again) here are the pictures of me from last week:
Oh yeah, and one more thing. Lately my feet have been hurting more often while I run and after I finish running. I bought my running shoes back during my sophomore year of college (umm... four or five years ago?) and I think they're worn out and that this could be part of the problem. But I really don't feel like shelling out the dough for new running shoes. But is that probably the answer here? Any input? Because yesterday my heels were really sore when we got back from our run and while we were running the bottom of my big toes hurt. Which is weird. Anyway, advice would be much appreciated.
