So Sunday was a little crazy but I managed to stick with my diet and got to go running last night. My hubby even joined me on his bike with the 2 little ones. I bought this new running toy and I had so much fun seeing how far I actually ran, and how fast I was going etc. I learned that the run I do daily is only about 3.16 miles, so I'm excited to add a loop or 2 to make those runs longer. :o) I am running another 5k on Saturday before the Park City trip and I'm way excited for that! I am trying to stick to a pretty strict diet and eating oats in the morning is going to be the death of me. I'm like a small child staring anywhere but at my oats, hoping they will disappear! BLECK! Meanwhile, when I'm brave enough to eat them they are too hot. The longer they sit in front of me... I lose courage! AHH!!! I am definitely not big on textures..... plus how good can oats really get without SUGAR?
AND!!! I was watching T.V. with my hubby last night. Twice yesterday I told my hubby that "I'm eating that next Sunday"! ;o) Like a pepperoni pizzone from pizza hut. Doesn't even sound good now but at the moment, eating some kind of splurge sounded SO good! Oh and he was eating a cinnamon roll for breakfast and telling me how FANTASTIC it tasted and I told him I'm having one for breakfast next Saturday! (Of course I won't because I'm running that morning!) Anyway. I am excited for the final weigh in. I am feeling great. I know I'm losing at least at the rate I've lost every other month. I'm working out daily. I'm feeling awesome. Only 4 more days! ;o)

A thought (or 2) about your oatmeal. You could try: vanilla soy milk (or vanilla almond milk yummy), a 1/2 - 1 tbsp of low-sugar jam or a bit of cut up fruit. Those are my fav additions to oatmeal. But, I also can't eat it without a 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar most days. I'd rather count the point. Maybe BS Splenda would work? I haven't tried it.

You are an inspiration to me. Thanks for posting your photos!

I am so with you on --"I am going to have that Saturday:)" THe good thing is, I feel like I have developed good habits, so there are certain things that don't even appeal to me which is good.

My favorite is frozen blueberries, peaches, or raspberries, with a small sprinkling of brown sugar. Yummmmm! Good luck on your run on Saturday. I can't believe how well you've done. Do you remember when you were frustrated about not losing? You've come so far!
