Wednesday 11/17

This has been the sickliest fall ever. I have a sore throat and an awful rattly cough and Harper has the cough, so surely her throat is bothering her too. It hit me Sunday night, so I skipped the gym Monday, ran yesterday and guess we are skipping the gym again today b/c she keeps coughing. You aren't supposed to bring your kid if they have a cough. I can understand that of course. Sick of being sick. My eating has been atrocious lately, I seriously had fish sticks and onion rings in the same day the other day...made at home! So today I am going to start writing down what I am eating until I get down to 125 (130 today). I need to seriously up the veggies and lower the carbs. Not going to worry about Thanksgiving though. Started the day off with a berry protein shake. Also on my mind is my running. I have had some good long runs lately, but have really been slacking during the week. I think by Jan I want to be running 5 days a week. I know before I have always said 3 days is enough for me. But I think 5 will really help me get faster. Since I am only worried about half marathons those runs don't have to be especially long, 4-6 miles for3 of the run, 6-8 for another 1 and then 10-13 for my long. So from now until Jan I need to work on getting that 4th weekly run in that I sometimes get in. Wish me luck.
