Modeling Good Behavior...

I went for a run this morning with 2 friends and a sister (also a friend). I was not the slowest, but I definitely had to stop and walk a few times, and I want to be better.

I came home and had a good breakfast; an oatmeal bake for lunch and too many slices of mozzarella while I prepped food for the little one's horse show tomorrow and a party tonight with the neighbors. The cheese is sitting in my stomach... not very happy. The good news is that aside from a pack of honey coated almonds - I've had no sugar, and I'm going to work to make that a thing...

I'm also not going to talk about it... I'm just going to do it, along with getting on the scale and posting current pictures and weight. I need to be accountable to myself. I know what I need to do. I know how I should be eating to support my health and lose weight.

I'm signed up for a 5K on November 19th. My Saturday run group is coming too so there's no backing out. I want to finish it running - no walking; that is my goal. I've invited my girls since the race is in our town, and they've declined for now; but I hold out hope. No preaching, no pleading.

I have to work on me. I have to show them what good habits are and what happens when you actually follow them. Talk is cheap.
