I've Got a Feeling... Today's Gonna Be a Good, Good Day!

Yesterday I planned on riding a really nice stationary bike that our clubhouse bought recently.
You see, I haven't been to our clubhouse for over a week because I hated the old fan-controlled stationary bike they had.
They actually still have that bike, but now there's a quiet, fancier one too.
I was excited to ride it, but my butt wasn't.
It has been sore from riding 4-6 times a week.
I decided to do a run/walk program.
I walked for 5 minutes to warm up.
I ran for 4 minutes and walked for 2 minutes. I repeated this 3 times, and then I cooled off with a walk.
I felt great.
I got my runner's high again, and it didn't hurt that "Black-Eyed Peas rotated again on my running playlist.
The Verdict:  my toes went a little numb, but no burning. I was okay.
Just to make sure, I iced my feet last night and this morning after my run.
Today I also did the same run/walk program, but this time I repeated the 4 min. and 2 min. 3 times.
It felt so good!
I know, I can't believe I'm enjoying running so much.
Here's the plan for today and what I've done so far.

34 minutes run/walk program (done)
20 minute abs with Jackie Warner (still need to do)
30 minutes upper body with free weights (still need to do)
1 hour walk if the wind doesn't blow me and the twins over (still need to do)
1 honey wheat english muffin, 4 slices tomatoes, 1 TBS B&B spread, 6 slices lean turkey deli slices
1 apple
7 almonds
2 small corn tortillas, 1 piece of turkey bacon, 1/4 fat free cheddar, 4 slices tomatoes
lowfat popcorn
7 almonds
WW Meal:  Chicken Carbonara with 1 tsp. olive oil
1 serving of Strawberry Greek yogurt

Thanks to all of my supportive readers who have been giving me such good advice and encouraging words!
Welcome to my new followers. I make many mistakes in my journey, but I can promise you that it's always honest.

I hope you're having a happy and healthy day!
