Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

Day 65 - Mrs. F

I discovered something today. Perhaps I knew this all along but Im an emotional eater. I got into an argument today and my response was to reach for the bag of truffles. I reached for the package of lefse and had a big plate of spaghetti.

Its much harder on days when things are stressful and Im tired. I just finished supper and i have 249 calories left. So if I can avoid the midnight munchies, I might just be okay.

Im looking forward to our run tommorrow. Depending on how early we manage to make it to bed, will determine if we have a morning or evening run.

A little sore today but not bad. I didnt even need to take ibuprofen.

Hopefully Mr. F's leg will be ready to go after several days of rest!

Keep on running
Mrs. F
