Now eating was a bit better yesterday. My biggest problem right now is that I love to graze on whatever I am cooking for dinner. Like yesterday I made these Taco pocket things from crescent rolls, taco meat, and shredded cheese. I ate some cheese when I shredded it, mixed a little left over taco meat and cheese with some Doritos for a mini taco salad, had a little more cheese, that kind of thing. So I had the mini taco salad, half a taco pocket and a brownie. Not my worst, not my best. But I did make an entire batch of brownies last night and not sample the batter. That might be the first time something like that has happened. Go me.

Finally made it to the gym.
Of course it was crowded. That frustrates me. But I know it will clear out by mid February. At least I go mid day so it is slightly less crowded. Anyhow I ran/walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. I have a running plan that I will be sticking to. My newest short term goal is to run a half marathon on April 5th. That is 3 short months from now. Even if I have to walk most of it, I am going to do this. I am going to stick to the exercise plan because it is doable. It is only 3 days of running per week, with a bunch of walking in between. I can do that. Speaking of my workout yesterday I nearly crapped my pants on the treadmill, probably due to the increase in fiber I have had lately. The mental image I have of myself clenching my butt cheeks together while trying to finish the interval I was on is pretty darn humorous.
