Progress.

Two things:

1. I've hit a personal milestone. Over the past 4 years of following the Weight Watchers program, I've done really well with it and then at other times, done really badly. The longest I had ever gone on the program without going over my point allowance or just saying "screw it, I need a handful of goldfish" was 10 days. 10 days of sticking exactly to my allotted point consumption and never once "cheating". I am proud to say that as of today, I am now on day 13! And the urge to go over my point allowance hasn't even been an issue!

I have been working out pretty consistently and I feel really good.

2. I signed up for a 5K. It's actually the same one I did as my first one ever 3 years ago. It's a really fun race -- it's the Six Tunnels to Hoover Dam 5K and it's a St. Patrick's Day themed run. The course is nice and the view is beautiful. I'm not trying to break any records or beat my own personal record time but it was an accomplishment to just sign up. The last real race I did was the half marathon in December 2011 so this upcoming race should be fun.
