I made it through these past five weeks without a lot of problems. Sure, I missed my eggs. Sure, it made eating with friends a bit difficult. Sure, I craved an ice tea from time to time. Sure, it took a lot of effort. But I made it through. Tomorrow, the learning phase begins. I will now start adding foods in and listening to how my body reacts to a particular food. (More details here.) It is still going to take a lot of effort because I am slowly adding foods in. I do hope to learn something from this process. Actually, now that I say that, even if my body doesn't react to anything, that is something I will learn from the process.
This weekend I am attempting to run another 5K. We will see if I can run the whole thing and not need to walk/run this time. I guess I need to get over the fact that I may need to walk a bit of it and just be proud that I am out there doing it but it is hard. I can easily run 3 to 3.5 miles on my own but somehow that hasn't quite translated into running an event. I know it is a mental challenge more than anything at this point. I am not quite sure how to get over that but I am working on it.
I am also training for the stadium stair climb. This weekend I went up and down my basement stairs 110 times for a total of 3,080 stairs. The stair climb in July will be around 3,980 steps. That will be a major challenge but I feel like I am up for that. I know that people will look at me and think I can't do it but I will. I will do it.
