…I realized something about 35 minutes ago. I’m signed up for two races next Saturday. I’m not entire sure how it happened, but I’m supposed to be running at Run or Dye Chicago 5K and the Muddy Monk May Day! May Day! May Day! 10K.
Okay, so, realistically I know exactly what happened. I bought the Muddy Monk season pass and mentally signed up for all the races, but didn’t put any of them on the calendar until I had officially signed up. Run or Dye was a Groupon (or maybe Living Social) deal I bought to run with Krista. Apparently I didn’t put that on the calendar either so when I finally officially signed up for the May Day race, I didn’t know there was a scheduling conflict,
BRIGHT SIDE! The races are at different times and the start/ finish lines are only actually about 15 minutes away from each other!
So, as you’ve probably guessedby now, I’m plannign to run both! Run or Dye starts at 9am and May Day starts at 10. I’ll have to finish the 5K, change my shirt (so I don’t get colorful dust all over my car) and high tail it to the second race, but it’ll be fun! Right? Right?!
I’m just glad I didn’t sign up for the May Day 15K!
2013 Starting Weight: 165 (Official Weight Watchers Starting Weight was 164.8)
Last Weigh-In: 156.6
Current Weigh-In: 158.6
2013 Total Weight Loss: 8.2 (not adding pounds gained unless it exceeds 5)
Apparently, it’s time for another weigh-in…
So, as you may remember from my confession on Monday, things have not been going all that spectacularly as of late. I honestly think the loss I had two weeks ago was something of a fluke as I promptly gained 2.6lbs the following week. BUT! I was back down (.8lbs) this week so at least there’s that.
I don’t have much to say today except things have definitely been looking up after Monday’s reality check. I feel like I’ve gotten myself back under control again. Oh and I had a really great run yesterday morning. I pushed myself harder (and faster) than I have in a long time.
Here’s to seeing that 156lbs again at the next weigh in!
Confession Time…To say things have been going poorly lately would probably be a total understatment. Things have been crap lately, and it’s my own fault. I could blame it on bein busy or something like that, but I would be lying to you and myself. Truth is, I’ve been extremely lazy lately. I haven’t been meal planning. I’ve been eating out A TON. I’ve been blowing off workouts. I’ve been overeating, and it’s been intentional in a lot of instances. I know I’m not even a little hungy, but there I am, eating. It needs.to.stop. I’ve made myself feel like absolutely garbage, and that’s not okay. So today, I’m turning it around. This week there will be no booze, no eating out, and no snacking on crap. If I want to eat (outside of meal times), it’s fruits or veggies. If I’m not hungry enough to eat an apple, I’m not hungry.

On Friday’s Maggie over at MagMileRunner hosts the #RunnerPhotoChallenge with a different theme each week. I love the idea, and it’s a nice little fun Friday post so we’re gonna run with it here. This week’s theme, as you might’ve already guessed, is pets.
First up, Mister Maxwell Edison. We recently celebrated his third adoptiversary with a low-key trip across the street to the park.
He puts up with a lot of crap from us.
We were really cramping his style when we were both home during the floods.
There there’s Sgt Pepper. She can be a comlpete bitch and often suckers me into the “rub my belly so I can bite you trap”, but she’s also pretty affection for a cat.
I got excited by the yogurt Chobani sent me back in April. Sgt. Pepper got excited about the box it came in.
Apparently going around the blinds is too much work. She just goes through them.
Yes, the week is mostly over, but I decided yesterday that I didn’t need to wait until Monday to plan my week. That’s that silly, “I’ll start tomorrow” logic that works for, well, no one. So here it is. The plan for the rest of the week. (In retrospect, I should have just planned through the end of next week, but whatever, I like grocery shopping.)
Breakfasts: A Lox-y twist on my usual breakfast sandwiches. I’m making toasted English muffins with cream cheese, smoked salmon and an egg. (6pts+)
