Shortstuff attempts to start running again

Main quest

Walk to Mordor and back (I'm on the back half now)

1. Log 35/42 days on MFP

This is 5 more days than what I had to do last challenge, I did log 30, but I think 35 would totally be do able if I put my mind to it

2. Go for two runs a week

I miss this I just need to put my mind back to it

3. Cut back on the soft drink

My drink of choice is Pepsi max, and because of the caffeine in it its making it hard to go to sleep at a decent time, making me tried the next day, making more likely I have another one.

The plan is (please note the numbers are the max amount I can have)

W1: 4 W2: 3 W3: 3 W4: 2 W5: 2 W6: 1

4. Finish 10 of the manga I got back in July and still have read yet

You must be a fair way on your trip back from mordor - last time I checked in you were really racking up those km

I logged all my food yesterday and I didn't have any soft drink, today was my birthday so I didn't log my food and I had a soft drink, but I did go for a run today, I did w1w1 of the 5k Zombies, Run! program, I had two unplanned sprints running after my sisters dog while on the run as well

I really like the soft drink progression. I quit Dr Pepper on my first challenge (2 years ago) and I did the same thing so that by week 5 I was done drinking it. I hope it works for you as well.

Happy Birthday - belatedly.

Zombies Run is good way to get back into running. How are you enjoying it?

In the past I have tried and for a while it worked, but after a couple of weeks I always seem to go back

Thanks, yea it's been good, yesterday I went for a run, and used it, and I felt like I ran more than what I would have if I just winged it

Logged food Saturday and Sunday, sadly had two drinks of soft drink on Saturday and like I said went for a run on Sunday.

I also weighed myself this morning as I'm trying to lose weight and it turns out I stayed the same weight, and I was a little disappointed as I thought I did really well food wise this week, but than I checked myfitnesspal and I didn't do as well as what I thought.

Sorry I have been meaning to update but forgot to. My bad. So I know I went over my soft drink by two last week. I didn't log for two days and I didn't go a run (got busy crafting on my days off)

I also had a soft drink today.

ooh crafting!? Do tell.

The soft drink challenge seems to be going okay considering where you felt you were the last time you posted. Glad to see it's still an active assessment and action goal. Continue the work, you're doing fine.

Let's just say I'm going to fail my running goal and my soft drink goal this week, hoping to fit the running next week, and have a review on the soft drink for the remaining weeks.

I'be been working on a pair of wings for a Weeping Angel costume.

Cool!

Do we get a picture when it's ready?

Do you think it would help to plan out the day a bit? Maybe before you go to bed, think about when you can run - before breakfast, during lunch, during a break in the wing-making.... I guess it's quite close work and taking a break to go and do something very different is only going to help keep up fresh, I would have thought....?
