Last few days have not been pretty but who cares?! I am back on track this morning. I got a lean cuisine pizza and an apple in my pannier and I will be biking to work this AM. Tailspin Shamail spin. It aint getting me down!
Sometimes that very small percentage of ppl who actually keep weight off pops up in my head. I can think of the basic reasons why it comes back. Babies, divorce, illness, other stresses of big events in life. I think what I have learned is you gotta just go on auto play. We know the basics. We need to have our standby healthy breakfast items we can stick to. Always keep a healthy lunch to eat on the go. Dinner, keep lots of easy dinner choices in the house. Also snacks, don't let snacks get boring. Everyday wont be awesome, as a matter of fact. Some days will be downright bloody and gruesome. You can have some gruesome days as long as they they followed by some good ones. Also the best way to keep weight off is write down what you are doing. When I don't start a day logging my breakfast asap, all hell seems to break loose. I see this one on a lot of my best ways to keep weight off lists I get on facebook.
So anyway, I had some sucktastic days. Another thing I have learned from the running group. No one comes to hear whining. We are doing this together, don't whine, just conquer! We all know it sucks! Some things do taste as good as skinny feels. But some of us were not blessed enough to eat it on a regular basis.
I was talking to my manager at the health food store and I was telling him I really enjoy zumba, its so much fun! and he said "do you enjoy zumba or do you like the feeling u get after zumba?" I was like, No I enjoy zumba! lol I actually look forward to it. He looked at me like he had never experienced a fitness activity that was like that. With all this marathon training I have only been going to zumba once a week and I savor it
Oh something else I am proud of this week! I ran out of soy milk and I freaked out! Well in my head. I have finally gotten used to not drinking milk. I never thought I could get off milk but I did it! Now cottage cheese is another issue all together! Something else I have come to terms with in the past yr is wearing clothes not as tight as I can. For some reason when I was getting really close to goal I wanted to buy all my clothes in skin tight sizes. For some reason I have reproportioned. I have talked to other ppl who have said this too. Weight stays the same but clothes fit different. I was fitting in 6 jeans. Now I am buying 10's and I even bought a 12 the other day. They are comfy and cute and who gives a crap? Size is a size is a size. Plus I don't have to unbutton my jeans after a big meal lol

So getting that coat has really inspired me to wanna go ahead and try to get one made for my mom. I have a friend who is a jack of all trades. She is amazing at baking, music, art, sewing. Pretty much anything she does she is awesome at and she is the sweetest person on earth! Anyway she sewed her own wedding dress and made her prom dress with her mom. I went to her to see if we could try creating this Coat and she said she would! She said the coat is probably gonna require about 8-10 yds of wool which is gonna be pricey. At least the design is not too complicated. Finding a Victorian pattern might be tricky too but at least its just loose and possibly easy to figure out without a pattern. I found this picture, we are gonna attempt from the photo but add arms, hood, change the buttons a bit, make it in navy blue.
The least complicated the better. My mom is very plain and does not like detail. Plus something loose like that you wear thru thick and then and not worry about it. Yay I am excited, she is gonna love it! Too bad I can't surprise her but I gotta get measurements. I got yet another angel in my life helping me out, Kate!
Yesterday went ok. I stayed in my calories. I was supposed to do a 9 mile run yesterday. On Monday I took my newish pair of vibrams on a fast 5 mile run. Not having the humidity in the air really makes running so much more fun again! Anyway I guess I wasnt used to it cuz my toe that was kinda injured from my 18 mile run losened and hurt and I had rubbing from my shoes again. I am so pissed at these shoes, I have been doing everything right going up on my mileage slowly with them since May and I am still freaking having rubbing issues! My old pairs of vibrams are cashed and I am depending on these for Chicago. It's like vibram is making their shoes lower and lower quality UGHHHH! I guess the crappiest thing about the vibrams is when they break in and feel awesome, thats when they are cashed =( So I felt like a 9 mile run would just be a bad idea and keep injuries opened when I gotta prioritize 14 this weekend. Sucks cuz this weather is so awesome and i wanna freaking run!
Got home yesterday and layed in bed and started thinking about that damn ice cream in the freezer that I forgot to give to my mom on Monday, UGHHHH! I figure if it stayed in the fridge closed then its ok. I wish I could throw it away, it seems like such a freaking waste. But you know what throwing away $5.50 worth of expensive icecream is worth the 2520 calories that's inside (yes I broke out a calculator). Damnit why is everyone in my daily life a vegan and wont take it or a health buff and wont take it lol Oooh my friend has a 15 yr old son, maybe he could use it! haha That's an idea. Haha finding ways to pawn ice cream off before my period starts in 3 days.
I woke up with an awful backache this morning. I wish I could do my day in reverse and go straight to water aerobics. ughhhhh feeling yucky!
