Yesterday was a true SUCCESS (except for the fact I didn't exercise) I ate so WELL! Mostly because I was busy all day, staying out of the house and avoiding food. But I didn't really even think about food all day which was good. I need to keep that in mind when I return to my apartment... Keep yourself busy = no mind for food. :)

This morning I forced myself out of bed at 7:15am (I went to bed at 11pm), although I think my prayer to Heavenly Father to "help me please be motivated to get up and exercise in the morning" what mostly what did it :-P. So I got out of bed, dressed myself in my new pants-and-jacket-exercise-outift from walmart and went to Porter Park. My plan had been to walk a lap, then jog one, walk one, jog one, walk one, jog one, walk one, then walk another one, but... I jogged a whole lap (I think it's about 1/3 mile or more around the park's track) just about died but finished, then my EARS started to THROB! It was an aching throb inside, like an ear ache. I walked for the next 20 mins, it hurt SO bad. Maybe it had something to do with the air pressure?

I think I remember something about allowing your body to adjust to different air pressures before you hard-core exercise? Am I right or making that up? Dunno... it just hurt. >.< Then I came back to the house, stretched and did my abs, then ate a bowl of cereal and four pb-filled pretzels. I am going to be a success!!!
