Streak ended...streak begun anew!

Friday, January 17, 2014

Felt a bit oogy yesterday.

Doubt it was from the tattoo. More than likely from the food I ate while high on endorphins afterwards. When it comes to food, endorphins are worse for me than having a couple drinks.

Streak of At Least 2 Miles a Day was broken, but I'm back on again today!

New tattoo!

Thursday, January 16, 2014



I know I will get a few raised eyebrows on the new tattoo. This is a *huge* departure for me since I got one that has an explanation to go with it. I couldn't even begin to care what a stranger thinks about it, but for those that actually read this I will attempt to explain.

For those that aren't familiar with The Blerch, going to the link will help.

theoatmeal.com/comics/running

But why would I get a funny looking cartoon blob as a tattoo?

Two reasons.

The first is that I finally have a manifestation of what I have lived with for most of my life. I have been active most of my life. I have been chased by the Blerch for longer.

Even at my most active, I have had issues all my life with being able to attain and maintain weight loss. I came from an family that held being active (physically and socially) more important that being thin.

You hiked that mountain today? Then you deserve something decadent afterwards . Spent the entire day volunteering? Your favorite pizza would make for an excellent dinner. Cross country skied all day? You must be starving! Here is a table full of very yummy and only somewhat good for you food.

I found out the hard way that this isn't how most of the world sees things. I have, for the most part, made peace with that.

I've been told by several doctors that some people, no matter what they do, just have a harder time with weight than others. Lucky me. I get to work harder then. Which leads to....

The second reason is that there are times when I'm trying to go faster or a longer distance that it serves as a reminder. There isn't an immovable wall, there is only the Blerch and he can be outrun. And for those that have experienced The Wall during any form of activity you know that such reminders are important and, for me, necessary.

Oh, and that one shouldn't use a straw with a jar of Nutella.

    Its your tat - no one else's and no one else has to understand although I know you already know that!

I love it! And I love the reason you got it and I can totally relate to why cuz I have one chasing me too.

    I also meant to add that personally I don't think it matters what other people think of your tattoo - so long as the tattoo has personal meaning to you, that's what I think is important emoticon

    Everyone has just about summed up what I was going to say! I think that as longs as it means something to you all the other people in the world don't matter. Call me crazy but he is kind of cute in his own way.. emoticon

This is heartbreaking.

My friends, please be careful not only when you are driving, but when you are walking/wogging/running outside.

    How sad. We had a runner in Montana killed last year. She was a teacher too and sadly two people strung out on drugs abducted, then abused and killed her. Finally they buried her in a field in the middle of no where. It took forever for her alleged killers to be found and her body too. They still have not gone to trial. Very sad! She was running her usual morning route in a small town. Not premeditated either - just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I still have a hard time running alone after that.
