I get frustrated that I feel like I am eating right and trying to exercise and it isn't just falling off. I know it doesn't work like that, but why not?!
Yes, it is a holiday and yes, I argued with myself half the day telling myself, "It's a holiday, take the day off." Well, the more I thought about it the more I felt like crap for not doing it. I knew I would feel better if I just put on my running shoes and did some cardio. Why is it that we automatically think everything is an excuse to take the day off from exercise or cheat? Well, I have been doing interval training on the treadmill, which worked out perfectly today because it has poured all day.
Last week I started by walking 2 minutes at a speed of 3.6 and running 30 seconds at a speed of 7. This week up upped it to walking 2 minutes at 3.9 and running 1 minute at 7.3. Yay for little victories! I do approximately 3 miles, but today did 3 1/2. I am working up to the below interval, but I want to be able to do distance running at some point, so I am incorporating longer running periods to work up my endurance. Next week I plan to run 1.5-2 minutes, the next week 2-2.5 minutes, you get the idea.

I hope everyone has a great holiday! Happy 4th!
