So Close

I've been struggling for a couple weeks now to run a full 3 miles. I've been running 2 for a long time and it's been great but now I'm ready to push myself to 3 with my ultimate goal being to be able to run 5 miles at the end of this competition. My challenge is that my knee starts to hurt after the 2 mile mark. It's starting to really frustrate me. Because I KNOW I can run it without dying. The only thing that stops me is my knee. Tonight however I was sooooo close, and I mean close to running my 3 miles. I ran my 2 miles like it was nothing and then my knee started to hurt so I walked for a bit and then started running again. I definately ran 2.5 miles solid and I walked for less than a lap. I was pretty proud of myself. I feel like 3 miles are now within my reach. I never thought it would of been possible for me to run this much without dying. It's an amazing accomplishment, and I feel so great!

Leah gave us a great challenge! Here's something else.

Good job Leah!

Take that critical voice we all have that tries to sabotage us. You know, the one that questions your ability to succeed with your new eating plan. It'll say: "Why even try?" or "You'll just regain the weight you lose." or, or, or

You can counteract that negative voice with positive affirmations such as "I will be successful in reaching my goals one day at a time." If the voice keeps up, say "DELETE!" out loud. You'll be amazed how that one word will banish a negative thought, not to even mention that you'll feel silly and start giggling.

Have fun deleting!
