Stress Level -
Week 5 on the injured list and still having swelling in my leg. I got out to the track and got two walks in. Today I went to workout with Dex. He is my boot camp trainer. It felt so good to be back inside the gym working out with a friend. I truly did miss it. As I have sat here watching the world go by it's been tough. I've missed many 5Ks in the last month. I thought for sure it would feel like I was starting over again but to my surprise it didn't! I felt really strong and really good afterward. I had some swelling and some discomfort but not unbearable pain. I'm ok - I'm listening but I want back in and I want to run again and I want to be cleared from the Dr. I'm not there yet. I didn't meet my goal for the month of October.

The UP side -
I have run 3 - 5Ks this year! HELLO.... what am I talking about missing so many. I've only ever run 1 in my life. lol - Geez ease up on yourself lady. Next, I'm eating cleaner. I found tons of foods in my house that contain high fructose syrup, sugar and enriched flour. Gee, why am I not losing more weight? Nutrition, must learn more about nutrition. It's time to change the way I shop and pay close attention to those food labels. I'm going to try to start the 100/200/200 back up. I haven't done it yet but I'm feeling better and my MOJO is back! BIG congratulations to Lorrie of @cuteangel79 for being the Sista of the Week!
