It’s Not Sweat, It’s Liquid Awesome
I don’t mind sweating. In fact, most of the time I welcome it. I like to get my sweat on. It makes me feel like I’m getting something for my effort.

Good things to eat this week- black eyed pea salsa; whole wheat couscous with grape tomato, cucumber, fat free feta and red onion; homemade chili, and homemade spicy korean pork stir fry. Bad things to eat this week- PUMPKIN SCONES! mmmmm But the small amount of weight gained in December is gone and I’m back on track to the 7-10 lb I’d still like to dump.
I don’t “do” resolutions but I don’t have a problem if they’re called goals. My goal is to add running back into my workouts by returning to the habit of running the hilly 3.5 miles to my carpool stop at least 3 times a month (it used to be 3 times a week) and adding speed work on the treadmill twice a week. I would like to cut 30 seconds per mile off my current pace which will still make me a slow runner, but faster than I was today. Goal.
