I missed last week Ė whoops!
No big deal. I checked the scale today. Even though it was only down a little, Iím still pleased with it. I have been ravenously hungry lately. I know it is due to the HM training. I remember this happened last time. Instead of getting upset at how hungry I am & trying to make it on not enough food, this time Iím eating as needed Ė which feels like almost constantly, LOL. Itís ok. Really. Things will get back to normal in less than 2 weeks Ė WOOT! My race is coming up on 2/24.
Iím also not going to concern myself with any kind of weight loss until the race is over. Seriously, this hunger/marathon training + me losing weight just doesnít mix. This means I probably won't reach my goal by Easter, but I'm ok with that. I much prefer being off a couple of weeks than starving.
My eating 10g of sugar or less a day isn't going to great. I know that I'm eating less sugar than I was, I'm just not hitting that goal of 10 grams. Pooey.
I did my 12 mile ďdress rehearsalĒ Saturday. I pushed myself faster than my LSR ever are. I didnít stop to pee. I just kept going. I felt great the first 9 miles, then the last 3 everything hurt from the hips down. Today my quads are still a little sore so I skipped my Monday run. Iíll do it tomorrow instead.
Iíd better be UNDER 2:30 for my finish time or Iíll be ticked off. I should be able to do it as long as I donít get injured. Fingers crossed!
A few weeks ago I noticed I was having trouble focusing when reading my Bible or when I was on my iPod. Today was the first time I've had my eyes checked in about 12 yrs. Iíve always had good vision but I figured I was getting old people eyes & needed reading glasses.
Well, I DO have excellent distance vision at 20/15. She said that was better than 20/20. My close up vision isnít the best which is common for people with great distance vision. Anyways, the el cheap-o Wal Mart reading glasses isnít what I need. I need some regular ones. I wonít have to wear them all the time, so Iím looking forward to having them. This is totally new to me so it is making me giggle. Me. Wearing glasses. Haha!
The kids & hubby had a fun time helping me pick some out. Hubby, of course, kept picking ones that looked the worst. Since I don't have to wear them all the time I picked out some colorful ones. They are kind of a greenish turquoise. They may have brown on them too...I can't remember.
Anyways, on to the weigh in!
Goal of 123.4 on 04/06/12:
