Last week I was on vacation. Yay! Before I left for vacation, I set a goal for the week. My goal was simple, don’t gain any weight.
One reason I love going to the beach each year is that I get to run on flat ground. There are no hills! So I try to run each morning. This year was no exception. Thing 4 and I hit the road every morning. I ended up running over 20 miles last week.
All that running, and being conscious of what I was eating, I actually managed to lose 3.5 pounds over the week. Score!
I know that to many people it sounds crazy, but I have noticed over the last few months that on the days I don’t get out and run/move in the morning, I am so much more tired during the day. I can’t really afford to be tired with 4 kids, especially when I am responsible for homeschooling them each day. Thankfully, I think the boys realize that too and have been pretty good about letting Thing 4 and I get out and get moving every morning.
