So I went over yesterday again - I gave in to the lure of my DH saying, "Do you really want to cook in this heat?" And we had a coupon we needed to use for pizza so pizza happened.
It was delicious. And honestly I showed restraint - I didn't restrain as much as I would have liked, but I ate a LOT LESS than I usually do when we order pizza. Only 3 slices - two of a normal pizza and one of a small pizza.
Anyway - too many details, bottom line, splurged again, and I'm ok with it. Today I am on track so far and I'm gonna stay that way!
Also I got in a LR this morning, 11 miles. I wanted 13 but the run just wasn't going fantastic today... bathroom issues and whatnot.

Yes, trying to just start a blogging streak. If I blog everyday, it will keep me mindful of everything. This will be a great thing... because blogging is fun! And not stressful! :) So it's a no pressure way to get me on track sneaky style. hahaha.
So I ran 6 miles this morning, 4.66 on my own, 1.34 w/ the Roscoe (our loop is 1.34 so I know what to run on my own to get whatever total I want, and I always go out and back on my own so it's a piece of cake...).
Things are going pretty good in general. I start marathon training officially next week - WOOHOO!!!! :D I'm soooo stoked.
I also have a half marathon next week - not the usual start to marathon training, but it just happened to fall that way.
I will have another one in August that I will run as a training run of sorts, and then one in September which will be my official marathon pace tune up and half marathon PR attempt. Then NO RACING in October - and the Really Big Free Marathon Nov 3rd!!! :)
I'm so excited, because also in August my family is coming up to Vermont to visit us! :D And then in Nov, my sister is also running the marathon with me (her first). My DH and I are making this a nice vacation trip to Vegas - I've never been. We're staying at the NY NY and I'm so excited. My brother is supposedly also doing the marathon but I don't even think he's trained at all. I think we're gonna have to convince him to cancel or step down to the half...
And then all the BUN BUDDY BRIGADE are coming! Well not everyone, but a good portion of delegates, including bunnies I have not met before... so that is super exciting...
And my friend from RW that I paced in the local marathon will be there, too, so I will get a chance to see her again.
Also my goal half in September is in Montreal and we are going to have a fun weekend out of that. The hotel we're staying at is so cute and is pet friendly. We haven't decided for sure if we will take Roscoe or not... it always makes logistics for doing things a bit more tricky, but at least we'll have a room at a pet friendly place so we can leave him in his crate if we need to... but we might board him.
So I thought I was going to get a new mileage PR for this month, but I forgot that I logged that hike on daily mile... still, I'll be close, and I'm not even in my marathon training yet. So that monthly mileage PR will be falling soon! :)
I tracked all my food yesterday and came in almost 1800 calories. So over my SP fast losing ranges, but under my BMR, so I'm ok with that. I'm an active person. I think I just need to focus on eating well and coming somewhere in that realm of calories and make sure I keep doing strength training.
Edited to Add: I adjusted my calorie burn per week to 4000 since that's closer to what I'm actually doing, and changed my lose rate to 1.5lbs a week. that will get me to about 173 by the date of my goal half marathon in September so I think that's a good goal. Then if I can take off a little more by marathon date, all the better. With those two changes, my Sparks calorie range goal is now 1590-1940 - much more manageable for me.
I DID STRENGTH TRAINING YESTERDAY. CHECK. I need to do some again on Saturday to start a good groove going to continue next week.
We're going to a baseball game tonight. :)

So, when I blog regularly, I track regularly, I track - I succeed.
I need to keep blogging!!! When I stop blogging, that means I'm not really staying on my game.
But my running has been going great, at least! :D
I'm going to set a new monthly mileage PR this month, looks like - super excited about that.
I tracked my food so far today.
I need to do strength training today. REALLY REALLY REALLY.

OK! SO! Here's the rundown...
Didn't track yesterday so I don't have that for you...
Ran 12 miles today - 8 on my own and 4 with Roscoe, for the 12athon challenge (12 miles the 12th of every month for 2012).
I got going so early I didn't weigh myself, but I did after... but that was also after a really long run so??? I did drink water after the run and before weighing. So I have no clue how accurate the weighin was... but it was 190.
I did some pushups and my abs workout today - thinking I'll do lower body tomorrow cause my legs are DEAD after racing Sunday and doing 12 miles today.
I've been tracking my food all day today, so I will be able to check in more on that tomorrow, as well.
I got a laptop! My DH's work was raffling refurbished laptops for donations of $100 to charity and we got one. It's kind of crappy, but it works. I can surf the internet from any room in the house now! :D hahha. the battery life is awful, but I don't need to be super mobile with it, so it's totally fine. I feel so fancy now. ;) haha. But the best thing is I can track food downstairs as I go without schlepping up and down the stairs... isn't that lazy? I can also do mindless computer things instead of munching when downstairs and bored, so that's kind of good, too... it's dumb, but I think it will help. Of course right now I'm writing from upstairs, but still.
