I am so proud of myself!!

Sometimes you just gotta feel proud for yourself! Today I ran 3.1 miles!! I am very happy about this. I knew I wanted my long run for this week to be 3 miles but was going to do it Friday until I saw the weather forecast... storming all day on Friday! And knowing there is no way I would do it on my treadmill, I headed out to do 3 miles today. I was kind of weary since my legs were very sore from soccer and running yesterday. I am ALWAYS sore after soccer! I must really use some different muscles than I normally do! I must have been in a motivated mood because not only did I decide to do my 3 miler today when I was sore, but I also decided to do it on a very hilly route!! I just kept telling myself, "you can do this", and I did! It ended up being 3.1 when I finally got to my house and looked at my Garmin. I did about a 10:30 pace according to my Garmin watch. Not too shabby, not where I ultimately want to be but hey, this is my first 3 miler post ankle injury!! I am glad tomorrow is an off day because my legs are pretty sore:)

On another note, how many of ya'll have really big sweet tooth's?? I do and I am really wanting to cut back on the sweets I eat. I just feel the need to have something sweet after lunch and dinner! I don't know when or why this started but I have been doing it for quite some time. Most of the time chocolate is what I crave! So my question is, what are some healthier alternatives to candy, cookies, ice cream etc. that you like to eat as your dessert? And if you have kicked your sweet tooth habit, please tell how!!

I am making spicy chicken alfredo for dinner tonight! YUM! One of my favorite pasta dishes and I generally don't like alfredo! I will post pics and the recipe later on:)


  1. Go girl!! And, that dinner sounds yummy!

  2. Wow - that's awesome! I don't really have a sweet tooth but when I do, I find that a skinny cow ice cream sandwich or a WW chocolate candy usually help a lot!

  3. and seriously, the fried ice cream is so amazing. i can't even tell you how good it is.

  4. I bought rice cakes today. I got two flavors, apple cinnamon for my sweet tooth,and cheddar for when I'm craving salt. I'll let ya know how it goes!

  5. Healthy desserts: small bowl of fro yo with fresh fruit, cereal, whole wheat english muffins with nutella or pb, fruit, ww waffles with yogurt and friuit, basically lots of fruit!! Good job on the run :)
