Have I lost my MIND?!

Here are some things I'm especially excited for coming up in the next few weeks:

*My first race, a 5k on April 4th! I can't wait and really want to push myself to get a good time!

*Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleading try-outs are at the end of March and I have been working extra hard at the gym (and on my diet) to be prepared. It would be a dream come true if I make it but I know there is some stiff competition-either way it is something fun to do with my best friends

*Going to a concert on Tuesday in NYC I <3>SPRING BREAK MARCH 13th! WOOOO HOOOO! One glorious week off of school!

Okay now this brings me to one final thing I just committed myself to yesterday....YES I'm pretty sure I have gone crazy....oh well....


As I told you the other day, I have NEVER run further than 4 miles. I am mental, but I'm always up for a challenge hehe. My friend is running it with me and we have OF COURSE decided it is just for fun and for a good cause so WHY NOT do it?!

Last night I had trouble even going to sleep because I was wondering how the HECK I'm going to do this. The only things I know about running 12+ miles is from what I read on your guys' blogs. I have about 2 months to prepare for the half (without KILLING myself because I want to do well in my 5k) and would really appreciate some tips from you guys. Do I need to carry water, What do I wear, How should I start upping my mileage without dying? HAHA ---- HELP!

Basically my LONG fasts have to end. There is no way I can survive off of fresh juice for extended periods of time while running and working out as hard as I am going to be. I figure if I want to juice, I will, if I want to fast I will, But I'm not making any restrictions or rules. I'm just going to listen to my body. Which by the way is 12 pounds away from my goal weight:)

I'm going food shopping today...Thanks for your tips:) I'm buying clean, healthy, food that will make me feel good inside and out! I am so excited to try all the new foods you guys have introduced to me- SERIOUSLY you all have given me a whole new outlook on food and what I want to put into my body- THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Okay, off to class, gym, food shopping, maybe movie with my mom or hanging with some friends--WOO HOO FOR FRIDAY:)
