The 2nd day of the millionth attempt

Today was a good, good day.

I ran 3.5 miles.  Not much, but I just left the house and started running and ran a new route and had no idea how far it was until I got home and mapped it on mapmyrun.com.  So, it seemed long at the time.  And I just started working out consistently as of yesterday again...so it's going to take time to build back up.

I also feel really strong right now.  I feel like I could do this forever; I just need new recipes and to try new things.  I like eating healthy.  I like working out.  I like having structure...and a plan.  I have been having little headaches throughout the day, but I'm 100% convinced it's caffeine withdrawal.  I read in the book that one couple had caffeine headaches for up to four days!

I'm starting to wonder if maybe I have an allergen to gluten or starchy carbs or something.  I just feel so much better when I'm not eating them.  Don't get me wrong- I love my carbs.  All kinds of carbs.  Sugar carbs, starchy carbs, healthy carbs, unhealthy carbs...I'll eat them anyway I can get them.  But I feel so different when I'm eating them all the time.  I feel full and gross.  I feel lethargic.  I'm too tired and too full to work out if I'm eating lots of carbs.

Anyway- now I'm rambling.  Today was a good day.  No, today was a GREAT day.  Tomorrow is going to be even better because I'm going to plan something super yummy to eat for dinner!  Yay for structure!  Yay for getting off sugar and getting off caffeine and eating healthy and working out and feeling good.
