C25K Update

So, I haven't posted for a couple days.  But we've been exercising everyday since the last post except for last night.  I had the chills and a fever.  So we decided to take our break last night.  Which means we'll be exercising tonight.  I don't think anything eventful happened on any of the nights.  My knees have been holding up ok.  They are still stiff.  I've kept on the Mobic because a coworker convinced me that it needs to build over time.  That maybe it's not an instant pain reliever (even though it says "take as needed FOR PAIN" on the bottle...  lol).  I'm still doing the Tylenol big dose in the evening before we go out.  Everything is going ok.  Boring, shmoring.

In other news, we are eating better.  I'm trying to eat a salad with every meal to take up room in my stomach before I fix a plate of whatever we are having.  That way I will eat less of the meal.  Also, I don't think I've mentioned in this blog, but I've given up Diet Coke for as many days as we've been doing exercise.  So more than two weeks now.  That is a feat because, just ask anyone, I was a Diet Coke connoisseur.  I've been drinking water and Crystal Light (the something or other fitness kind that doesn't have artificial sweeteners).  I've been trying to eat breakfast.  Usually something like turkey bacon, a piece of fruit and some yogurt.  Generally we've all been trying to make more healthy choices.  But we aren't calling it a diet.  And if we want something sweet, we eat something sweet.  We eat our same old meals, substituting healthier choices (ie. ground turkey for ground beef) where we can.

As with everything, we'll see how it turns out.

Awesome Christina, I am proud of you! I know you are doing this one right. Making a lifestyle change instead of fad dieting.
