This is definitely newsworthy...

I officially have 6 Followers!!!!  Holy crap, how did that happen?!?!  Not that I'm complaining...I am truly jealous of those that have hundreds of followers.  It means that people are actually listening to what they have to say.  So now, I have 6 peeps that are potentially listening to my story, as boring as it may be.  Thanks!

In other news, I logged 3 miles on the treadmill last night and got an upper body strength workout in.  I did the strength workout first, which might have been a mistake, because by the time I got on the treadmill my motivation was gone.  Completely gone. Vanished.

So while my arms were barely working after lifting, I got on the treadmill.  I walked a lap, and then thought, "I might just not do this tonight."  Really?  My goodness, it's not like I had to go 10 miles or anything.  All I wanted to do was 3 miles, not that hard.  It took all of my willpower to continue, but I did it.  I had to read my Runner's World magazine and walk the last half mile, but I made it.

This tells me a little about myself.  On any given day in the "past", I would have just got off and went home.  I would have felt guilty and then I would have binged because I felt guilty for not working out.  Not last night!  I finished those miles and then picked up Subway for me and Dustin.  I ate healthy and didn't even have ice cream for dessert (only because we didn't get home until after 9...I probably would have had it if I was home).  I think I should get an 'A' for yesterday!

Not sure if I'm going to work out tonight.  I should, especially because Dustin won't be there for me to come home to, so I should just suck it up and get some more miles in.  But then again, I'm kind of tired and not might not do it.  If I don't, my eating will still be on track though.  I'll think about it...
