Non scale victory

Emotional describes today..I was overwhelmed at work, feeling unappreciated, lonely because my husband is working second shift right now, and just every other emotion under the sun. A year ago..maybe even two month ago..I would have headed to the Mcdonald's drive thru for a Big Mac, french fry, and large Dr.Pepper. And then I would feel better, right? Wrong.  
Today I am proud of myself. I didn't go straight to Mcdonalds. I went home, made a turkey sandwich, put my work out clothes on and went to the gym {after American Idol of course ;)}
Before
&
After

I did week3, day2 of C25K and 300calories on the Arc Glider..I was having some shin issues {any tips?!} so it wasn't the best run, but I was feeling it. My heart rate was up and I was just letting go of any negativity that occured during the day and it was a wonderful feeling. Waaay better than any Big Mac :)

Front side shins or back side shins? When I first started running I was just using my regular cross trainers, and was having a lot of pain in the backside of my shins. Once I got fitted for shoes ( I over pronate) and got the support I needed it went away. Front side may be shin splints, but I have no idea how to help with that.
