Notes: Good week of training. Excellent workout Sunday. I did my run in the early afternoon, then pushed a baby stroller around for four hours at the Josephine Sculpture Park’s Fall Festival > returned home around 8:00 p.m. and did my cardio work and boxing. That last part wasn’t fun, but it was a sweet double dip.

Increasing my running distance by 10-percent is working so far. It was weird to go out and only run one mile on Saturday, especially after I had been off since Tuesday. I felt rested and could have run longer, but I shut it down. It throws me off only doing this much exercise. There is enough of a break in between runs that I procrastinate. I should have squeezed this 1-mile run in on Thursday or Friday, but between the baby not cooperating and schedules running late I had to back it up on my Sunday run.

This week I’m going to try inserting cardio workouts for where my future runs will be once I’m able to complete a full schedule. I need something in place to keep me from mentally taking too much time off.

My food was decent, but there was a Taco Tuesday indulgence and a Buddy’s Pizza (that was delicious). I’m starting to get my portions back down to where I want them. Water intake was steady.

I’m beginning to see flashes of life below 200 pounds. Hoping to hit that steady this week.
