Daily battles and minor victories...

Today I started back up with C25K!!!  I went back to week one/day one, and this time was REALLY different.  It felt--EASY--and I almost wanted to run through the walking sections!!! HAHAHA! What a change from the first time around!! I know that when I get up to week 6 or 7 I will probably be singing a different tune, but I am going to enjoy how powerful I feel at this moment. 
New Shoes!!!
I LOVE my new shoes too--but I do have a blister on my foot, in a place I don't think I've ever had a blister before (inside bottom heel).  My knee doesn't hurt (I think the flat landscape that is Wisconsin is helping), and I went 2.16 miles. 
I ate my trail mix that I made (I had frozen it, and then L mailed it to me with my lunch box and shoes and rollerblades)--YUM!!!!! I knew I was eating nuts, but the almond slivers actually weren't that bad!! I can't wait to make more and not nearly burn it!

I was craving a coffee--a REAL one because it is cold here!!!   But, I have been avoiding Starbucks like the plague because everything I love to drink is tremendously high in points.  Today, I tried something new.  A grande pumpkin spice latte.  Delicious.  YUM. YUM. But, there is a slight (well, more than slight) problem. This delicious BEVERAGE was NINE (9) POINTS!!!!!!!! More than most Lean Cuisines, more than the turkey sandwich I packed for lunch today.  Even more than two double-stuffed oreo cookies!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!

Good thing I jogged today!! 


  1. Starbucks has some awesome light drinks too! My brother helped me design a few. I don't know if the pumpkin spice latte comes in light form though. Bummer.

  2. 9 points? Wow! I love the pumpkin spice latte, I usually ask them to reduce the syrup though, two pumps instead of the usual 3. Not sure how much of a difference that makes. Is it 9 even with skim milk?


I love when people comment!!! Good, bad, or even ugly--feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to respond!
