Running Late Again

It is a work from home (with adjusted hours today) day, so I sletp in a little and went late for my run.  I left a good hour and a half after I usually do and it made for a … Continue reading

Good News Bad News about loosing weight

Okay, tonight, due entirely to frustration on my part, I am going to go buy new underwear.  It is kind of a good news bad news kind of deal… and not one I ever thought I would really be looking at.

My underwear no longer fits.  It got to the point today that I had to safety pin it to my bra so it would stay up not let people see  it falling down over the tops of my pants.

Since running is becoming more and more of a really real thing for me, I’m going to invest in a couple pair that will wick moisture becuase sweat runs down my back sometimes.

this is a really weird turn of events that I guess I never considered about getting fitter and loosing some of the weight…

Ran yesterday morning and then walked to the store, so today at lunch I went for a stroll… nothing heavy… just a nice walk.

Soaring Sunday

Got up late. This wasn’t a bad thing since my little girl called me last night from the miltary ball all upset becuase the boy who she didn’t want to dance with got mad at her (something tells me that she hurt his feelings becuase she isn’t really tactful) and I was concerned most of the night… so didn’t sleep well.

After I got some water, I headed out.  Running in the daylight is weird.  I got to actually SEE the sunrise, which was great.  I’m working on Podrunner Intervals Gateway to 8K week 1.  I’m pushing harder and somehow the one minute down time seems to go way faster than any other minute of the day.

This afternoon we walked to the grocery store, which felt fantastic.  That made my day 7 miles.  I ate 2 pieces of chocolate which I should feel guilty about, but it was from an early box of valentines day candy (Mickey and Minnie are on the box) and I think the extra walk probably worked off the 2 candies… hope so anyway.

Dinner was spaghetti.  Now I’m thinking a cup of Stash Double Spice Chai Tea would be great.  I love that tea, all of a sudden… and I got a box for work while we were at the grocery store… Maybe if I drink just one cup it wouldn’t be too bad.  It has been a tea kind of day… tea with Splenda in it.  I had a cup of coffee with cream and Splenda this morning.

I should measure today.  Maybe… maybe not

185 pounds this morning… but part of that is water weight… its one of THOSE weeks.

Should get my last test back late this week… mammogram was Friday… knock on wood.
