The terrible weekend of temptation has been faced and defeated. :)
I know I said I wouldn't change my ticker unless I started to weigh consistently over my range but........ I weighed 165 even today.
SO! I reallly really wanted my ticker to finally show that I GOT THERE, so dangit, I updated it. :)
I probably ate more than I needed to on Saturday evening, but I didn't go CRAZY either. I got my little steak, baked potato w/ butter and sour cream ON THE SIDE thank you very much (only used a little bit), salad... good stuff. :) No desserts, good good. The extra were a bit of appetizers, but I really didn't eat very much of them at all -- not like I normally would. I was very in control and it felt great. I didn't feel restricted, just good. And normal. :) hehe.
Tracked everything on paper yesterday and stayed to the bottom of my cal range w/ good stuff and feel good today.
I wanted to do SOMETHING workout related this morning but I dunno how it happened -- I totally just lost track of time. I got up just before 10, planned meals, and somehow didn't leave for the store until 11:15, but I don't have to leave for work until 12:40. I figured, ok, I have a list, hit the first store 30min, hit the second store for like 3 things, 15 minutes, I'll be back at the house by noonish, a little after. (I live RIGHT NEXT to the stores I was going to.) Well I get out of the first store and it's already 12:15. OOPS!
So I had to rush home, eat something, get my lunch together, put away the groceries, shower...
Left the house at 12:45 and arrived at work 5 min late. *phwew* HAHAHA. But no time for physicality. Maybe I can do some ST tonight, but everytime I say that I never do. (BWAHAHA I might as well be honest with myself...) Tomorrow is speedwork, though, and probably some Upper Body and Core ST. :)

WOOHOO!! I AM A WARRIOR!!!
Got to bed probably by 1:45AM... got up 5:30, was running by 6:05, got back to work at 6:35. :D YAY!
ALLLLmost 3 miles. So that's awesome. :D 10:06 per mile -- SO CLOSE to my goal of 10min miles for a 5K distance -- just a TINY bit faster and a TINY bit longer and I would have nailed it. But I must admit I'm pretty stoked about being that close. :D WOOHOO! Especially for getting up so early after staying out so late and all that good stuff.
That's it really.
Last night was fun, BTW.
OH, there was this one guy... (the guest of honor actually)... who kept calling me a hottie and giving my husband a hard time saying I was too pretty for him and all this crap. It's KIND of an inside joke, because he was giving this other dude at their office a hard time about that once and he apparently told everyone that he thinks I'm out of his league (my husband said this I mean) and so anyway. It wasn't TOTALLY awkward, but it was still kinda awkward (while also flattering).
This other girl that I met like... last year when I was not halfway through losing 100lbs yet even... she was like, "You look SO SKINNY. I mean REALLY. Like skinny skinny" I was like... Thanks? :D HAHA cause she meant it as a compliment. Then she was like, let me see your shoulders, and she came over and put her hands on my shoulders and was like, FEEL YOUR SHOULDERS. Now feel mine. And I was like, wow my shoulders are bony. HAHAHA
It was weird.
But these people were both very drunk.
(As were most of the party, except my husband and I because we don't drink... so that always makes for amusement. :) hahaha)
OH FOOD. *WARNING WARNING BAD FOOD AHEAD*
I had a burger. A big big burger w/ bacon and BBQ sauce and cheese, and I added an onion ring, and ate a couple on the side, and gave a couple to my husband. We were actually going to order an appetizer too (we discussed it before, but were going to order it later), but we ended up leaving that place to go someplace else, and it's a good thing, because I was really full and did NOT need any other food and yay, I didn't eat anything else. My DH even stopped on the way home to get something for himself and I declined any additional food. WOOHOO. So splurge meal managed.
One more to go through. :D I'm excited, actually.
Well, back to work.

Got woken up this morning by some ridiculous girl (remember Speedy from Runner's Yoga? Well she worked with my DH...) calling to yell at my DH for "telling lies" about her. WHAT?!?!?!? Some people are so insane...
Basically some things got out about some really DUMB stuff she said, and now she's embarrassed and wanted to call him while in front of everyone they work with and call him a liar in front of everyone as some kind of demonstration. ???? Anyway. They all know her so I don't really get the point of that -- beside the fact that he doesn't even work there anymore. It was a summer job in between school semesters.
I mean, if she hadn't woken me up, I'd JUST be laughing about it. But since she woke us up early, it's an irritation as well. :P HAHAHA.
Anyway -- not TOO early. Legs sore from running, upper body sore from ST. Guess I could have done some crunches or something but I decided to take the day off, especially since I'm gonna run again in the AM.
Tonight is the going away party at the bar. Ate a healthy breakfast and will soon be eating a healthy lunch. :D WOOHOO! :D And then whatever nonsense I eat tonight will be filed away under "cheat meal of the week".
So........ So You Think You Can Dance winner. Thoughts? I was kind of shocked about who WASN'T in the top two, but after the top two, the one I wanted of those two ... won. (How's that for commentary without spoiler? :D HAHA)

So I got up early and did my long run like I did last week -- I think I LIKE this early morning midweek long run. Most people I guess do theirs on weekends, but for me that was not really working so YAY for trying new things!
It was so tough to get up last week, and same was true this morning, but I mentally did not allow any alternatives.
I got to my running spot and pulled out my MP3 player that I plugged up to charge last night (oh how smart of me! I remembered to charge it, yay!) annnd... it was dead. I dunno what happened, I didn't really check to see it say charging so maybe the cable was not quite connected *shrug*. BLAST!!!
So.... I RAN ANYWAY. YES. I braved a LONG RUN with NO MUSIC. This is very unlike me because I LOVE music so much and it is what I cling to sometimes while running to ge tme through. But -- I ended up with a better time AGAIN for this route of 5.15 miles. :) MWAHAHA!
Then I went in the gym and hit my Upper Body again for some ST, showered, and went home. And then sat around cuddling myself in my hoodie until it was time to get ready for work. HAHAHA I was not feeling so hot. But I ate, I drank water, I feel better now. Been having some slight congestion lately, on top of TOM etc... so I think that's all it was. And post run come down. I went to the library before I came home so that was all while I was still feeling the good stuff :D HAHAHA.
Got a new book to read called "Hot Point Fitness". No idea what it's about, but I like reading about different fitness ideas so I'll let you know if it's any good. Also got some good fiction to read -- Orson Scott Card "Homebody" and Chuck Pahlaniuk "Haunted". Still haven't read Fight Club, but they didn't have that. This is the only other one I haven't read (I'm pretty sure) so I'm still pretty psyched about that. I actually put the first few books of the Twilight series on request. :) But I have to wait for someone to check them back in first. So I'm set for the meantime.
I guess that's about it for now. I'm happy about my run. My plan is to run again on Saturday morning before work since I'll be working -- I liked doing that before and that'll get it out of the way for my weekend. :)

I guess days like yesterday exist to balance days like today.
Woke up way too early. And then the CRAMPS kicked in. OH HELLO, TOM. WELCOME. WAHhhhhhh.
Then I couldn't get back to sleep. So started reading. Read and ATE all morning. Yeah. I ate way too much food for what would be considered a "breakfast" it was like an all morning buffet. Healthy stuff, really. But just too much food. I WILL be within range today. But. I was feeling totally chaotic this morning -- a bit out of control. And so tired. *sigh*
NO excercise either. My legs are sore from sprinting, my upper body and core are recovering from yesterday. I would have pushed my lower body to do some ST but... TOM plus Long Run tomorrow = bad idea. So today will be a 100% off day, which is totally fine with me.
Just not the best day.
Oh and I come to work and learn that I get to arrange for a pizza lunch reward tomorrow and a management dinner this weekend. And I got that done so, *PHWEW*. :D That was a relief. But it also means there's pizza tomorrow, a going away dinner at a bar (so the food as ALL fried stuff), and another dinner out the next day. WHAT A FAB ending to the week, yes??? And all at the perfect time -- TOM when I'm totally ravenous! SUPER. HAHAHA. I will plan for the pizza, bar will be a splurge day, and dinner out will be a planned extravagance. I've looked up the menu for where we're going and think it will definitely be manageable to find something reasonably healthy. Pizza I can fit into my ranges because I KNOW I won't eat too much (if I did I'd be stealing food from co-workers ;) haha) and I'll bring a salad or something to supplement it. And the bar -- it's gonna be disastrous. I will try to manage HOW MUCH I eat, but I am fairly confident a healthy choice is not going to be an option.
I feel good about my plan to tackle these obstacles. :) And not deprived either. :D YAY.
