I woke up at 5:15 this morning, not because I set the alarm but because my right knee was hurting so bad. I don't know why I didn't follow my husband's advice & take some ibuprofin before bed, but I didn't. I got up & took the ibuprofin & iced my knee for a while & thought about whether or not I would hit the road this morning or not. At first, I thought I'd wait & walk this evening, but that's really a crap shoot because until the middle school football season is over, I'm never sure when Brock will be home (did I mention he was head coach). So I decided I better suck it up & get out there this morning - so I did it. I had to cut off the last 0.2 mile because I dropped my cell phone & had to back track for it, but I will try to get out there this evening & make that up. I'm really proud of myself for pushing to go on - I'm usually such a quitter when anything gets too tough. I didn't eat as clean today because my MIL, SIL & I went to the next town shopping & we ate lunch at TGI Friday's (my favorite), but I didn't overeat like I normally would, so I would still consider today successful. Like I said before, I'm not following any "diet" because they just don't work for me. I will try to make better choices, but if I really want something, I'm gonna have it. When I deny myself completely it just seems that I obsess until I give in anyway. This way I don't seem to do quite as bad. Hope everyone has a great rest of the day!!

Thanks for stopping by and am glad you have joined my challenges. I hope you find that they are motivating. You will find that the other ladies are extremely motivating. As for your efforts today, good for you. You know baby steps is what it takes. We can't make all the changes overnight as much most of us have tried to do in the past. We usually don't succeed. If we make small changes every day or even every other day, they add up. Make better choices most of the time and they add up. In the past, I was one of those that if I had a bad day, I threw the towel in for the whole week. I don't do that anymore. We have to rework the way we think and it looks like you have done that so kudos to you!!!
