Happy Canada Day!
We didn't do much for Canada Day. A bit of housecleaning, a bit of reading, a bit of cutting a quilt out. And a bit of discussion about what we eat and how we can fix that.
So we set some goals for July. We've been doing a great job of eating at home rather than out and we've been particularly staying away from fast food. But we have been eating a LOT of junk food. I don't know why, but chips, pretzels and candy have been finding their way into our house (and my desk drawer!) way more often than they should.
So, for the month of July, we're aiming to eliminate crap from our diet. If I'm going to run a half marathon next year, I've got to get better focused on what I eat.
And I need to get running again. A combination of the heat and a lack of energy at 4:30 has meant I haven't run in the last week and a half. I have great intentions, but when that alarm goes off after a night where I've struggled to sleep due to the heat, it's way to easy to reset the alarm and get another bit of sleep.
In June, I ran 13.1 miles. In July, I'd like to see that number go up to at least 20 miles.
