So this week, week three, has proven to be quite difficult.  I blame it entirely upon Halloween and those darn sweet treats!!

I am completely feeling the face of Orange M&M…

I have found that this low carb, high fat, diet thing is not working well for me.  As you know, I do love the bacon and cheese but what I also found is that I crave bacon and cheese.  Great for the diet, terrible for the waist line.  It seems that although you CAN eat bacon and cheese, it is not suggested that you ONLY eat bacon and cheese…hence the rise in numbers on the scale.

So sad I know.

And I won’t even mention the chocolate calling me from my high fat bacon and cheese stupor that may have something to do with the scale incline as well.  It seems Kit Kat and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups have a unique spell over me…

“Do not desire his delicacies, For it is deceptive food.”   Proverbs 23:3

So although I will continue down the low carb path; instead of high fat I will heighten protein, fruits and veggies.  That has never failed me in the past…so we’ll go back to the old stand by!!

I did continue with the week three training and did well on this week’s plan although now I’ve lost Syd somewhere in the candy dish so we need to dig her out and get her motivated…

The week’s not over yet!

On Monday, Syd came home and announced she wasn’t going to run because she was coming down with a cold.  Sort of a lame excuse, but I’ve been known to do that myself.  I figured she would run Tuesday.  No such luck with Triple Treat at church and then Wednesday was Halloween…

So when she got home today, I told her to get on the treadmill.  We have three days left of this week and three training days so we need to get boogy-ing, and she completely stalled.  She did not want to run and announced that she would start training again next week seeing as how she hasn’t started this week yet.

I knew I just needed to get her moving so I told her to get her shorts on.  She stomped up the stairs, slammed the door, changed, stomped back down the stairs and headed down to the treadmill.  I followed her and got her started.  After the warm up and the first set of running, she smiled at me and said “Sorry…”

I knew, all she needed to do was run, and she would feel better.

Week 3:  Day 1, 2 & 3:
5 minute warm up
90 second jog/90 second walk
3 minute jog/3 minute walk
90 second jog/90 second walk
3 minute jog/3 minute walk
5 minute cool down

Mission complete.

Isn’t it interesting how we can convince ourselves that the best things are not what we need but when we finally do make the right choice… we always feel better!!

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”   Philippians 4:8
