Day 19 & 20

Yesterday I ran 1.4 miles and stopped by the church to do five 40 yard sprints in their parking lot. I  had gotten up at 6 like planned (the kid actually woke me 10 minutes till six). Today I woke at 6:30 and ran 2 miles! (well, I ran for 1 mile straight and walked/ran the rest), then back to the church parking lot for another five sprints.

Felicia and I followed up this morning with a small run to the farmer's market where I got some great produce for some corn salad and some chocolate basil for bruschetta.

 I plan on making the baguette myself. Everyday I seem to be eating better. Tonight will be dinner with the parents at La Baguette and with it great temptations.

I've also started working on fractions & decimals as part of my campaign to get better at math. 


  1. Great work!

    Re the restaurant tonight, if you see this beforehand... saw a great quote at Norma's blog today:

    "Do Not Use Your Stomach As a Trash Can"

    Good luck!

  2. Thank you. I didn't see this before going. Had a chicken pesto pizza with, interestingly enough, lettuce and tomato on top.

  3. Great job this weekend! Hope the baguette turned out great, and good for you for continuing to want to learn. Keep it up!

  4. J.R., I'm glad to hear you are doing well overall. The food from the farmer's market looks great! I wanted to make it to the farmer's market today, but I had yard work to get done before it got too hot, and while I had my son to help. You are doing a great job with the exercise.

  5. You are definitely staying focused and it's very inspiring. Those vegetables from the farmer's market look delicious.

  6. I keep forgetting about my town's little downtown marketplace with fruit and vegetables. This post reminded me I need to check it out! Great job on eating better and improving.

  7. Great job on the workout! A lot of people (even the "average sized" ones) can't run a mile straight, myself included. Stay focused and you will achieve whatever you put your mind to. Even if your body says no, your mind will say yes.
