And a bridal show to go to :)
I couple of weeks ago I updated my spark status to say that I was emceeing a bridal show. I thought I'd share a photo. It was a fun day for me since I got to borrow a dress from a bridal shop, and have my hair and makeup done for me. I felt completely pampered, and for the first time in a long time, BEAUTIFUL.
My job was to read a script that described in detail, all of the dresses on the runway. Not too scary for me since I'm a radio DJ. Little did I know that the bridal shop planned for me to walk the runway too. Yes, ME, the girl who just 10 months ago weighed in at 214 pounds.
I had CONFIDENCE and I ROCKED it!
Thank you SPARK! Without Spark People I would have NEVER been able to do this!

Since I began my FOCUSED weight-loss journey, running has been my outlet. If I'm stressed, I go for a run. This has replaced my old bad habit of shoveling the food in whenever I'm stressed out.
Since yesterday morning when I was told by the doc to stay off my foot until Sunday I have wanted to binge SO SO BAD. But guess what? I HAVEN'T! I picked up a 3-pack of sugar free gum instead! I've been chomping away. Everytime the urge to go to the cupboard strikes, I pop in a piece of gum instead.
It might seem like a small victory, but for me it's HUGE. In the past this would have been an excuse to consume a ridiculous amount of calories.
So far so good!

I am having foot pain. A LOT of foot pain.
Monster Dash is about 1 month away and I am scared. I'll be honest, I'm FREAKING OUT!
It all started on Friday during a run; I felt some discomfort and pushed through it...afterward I paid the price. I spent the next 24 hours icing and keeping it up. Then, like an IDIOT, I went for a run on Sunday. NOT GOOD. I made it through, but it hurt A LOT.
I took yesterday off and kept icing it. Today it feels better, but still not 100%. I have a friend who is a chiropractor so I gave him a call because I was thinking it might be Plantar Fasciitis. After chatting with him about where on the foot the pain is, he told me it sounds more like a STRESS FRACTURE.
Did I mention Monster Dash is coming up?
Now I'm wrestling with going to the doctor...I know I should and that I'd tell my spark friends to go, but part of me is scared of what the doctor will say.
