Okay so I change my mind more than I change my underwear. What can I say, I’m a girl and it’s my Prerogative (love the BS rendition). I am giving up on Wednesday weigh ins. Why, because I start off good, think about how awesome my pants are fitting then I weigh myself. The scale NEVER tells me what I want to hear (what? Your scale doesn’t talk to you?), so good bye scale. This love affair is over. You see, when the scale doesn’t tell me what a rockstar I am, it makes me sad, and makes me eat like crud!
Look at how mature I am being about this, usually not my style. I swear by the scale, I have ALWAYS said that the number on the scale is all that matters. Guess what, it doesn’t. Give me a few
months weeks days, and I will be punishing myself yet again…..
In more important news, my 12k training is ROCKING. Are you ready Ginny?? ( I don’t think she reads this) Even with sickos in the house. I have stepped back my speed (can it be called that?) and can now run my 3 miles without walking. Big deal? Yes it is. I have been warming up and cooling down too. I must be growing up, nope I just really DO NOT want another injury. I am running every other day, cross training and *sigh* strength training. And my diet? It could be worse. I have just been eating less of the tasties and more of the veggies.
Did I tell you that one of my besties from AZ is coming to visit next weekend so I am POSITIVE that we will undo all of this work. I’m cool with it, love that girl!!! D.H and they kids will do their thing while we eat, drink, and be merry. Speaking of D.H. he has been out of town all week. Even though we have spent close to half (maybe ½) of our married life a part (thank you military) I am no longer use to it. It has been almost a year since he has gotten out and nearly two since the big A (Afghanistan). Come home, we need you!!!! I am not sure why I am talking to him on here because I know he doesn’t read my blog. L I am so glad that I have you all. AND I have questions tonight, yay!
Do you wear compression socks on long runs/races? If you do, what brand?
If you are not a runner- Do you want to run a race with me? I will come to you…
