The End

I hereby declare the end of a successful Dessert Challenge! I am so proud of myself it is kind of ridiculous. I started getting down on myself last night when I reviewed the week, thinking "but I didn't practice yoga at all!" and "I still ate 'too much'!" but ultimately objectivity won. Yoga was not part of the Dessert Challenge. Nor was hitting a certain calorie intake. This week was all about cleansing my system from white sugar. I did. And it feels great!

I like the rhythm of this plan, so I will continue with it, "it" being dessert once a week. This week I'm adding two new goals:

1. Track calories. The software is here. No getting around it.
2. Practice yoga once. My body needs the stretching. I was really tight during my long run on Sunday.

Speaking of long runs on Sunday, why didn't I get the memo that every runner in the city was doing some kind of race yesterday morning? I was the only non-registered runner out there. Having the racing runners around me reaffirmed my desire to enter a race. I shaved 5 minutes off my time! Just from pushing myself with the energy of the crowd. There is a half marathon in two weeks, 13 miles, but I don't know. I think the distance might be a little much. Yes, I run 10 miles (ok, more like 9.5) once a week. But I am exhausted by the end. Can I add another 3 miles (ok, 3.5) to that?

Wee!! Yahoo!! Grats and well done on your Dessert Challenge! It's not ridiculous to be proud of yourself--even if it feels like it--it's not! And I think you definitely CAN run 3.5 more, if you work up to it slowly. I'm rooting for ya, as always! Please keep us posted on the new tracking software and how you like it.

Go for it. You can totally do it! I bow down before your ability to conquer the dessert challenge.
