A little blue but still kinda green!

Saturday, November 03, 2012

As I blog (thanks to SparkCoach for the prompt), I am icing the ball of my left foot after walking around on it all day, supporting my friends who ran the Monumental Half and Full marathons!

Argh, I am blue from not being able to run.

I am green, however, at the "excuse" to swim lots and lots more.

I have a small tiny tiny tiny promise to a friend to run the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon in May 2013.... we'll see how January feels.

At least I don't have to spend $$ on running shoes, right? Heh heh heh...

What is it about running that I love so much? I mean, there's the convenience, of course. Schlepping it to the pool means either waking up at 5:30 AM or getting home at 7:30 PM on weekdays. Forget Saturdays because those are reserved for the boyfriend. Running is something we can do together but I guess what I'm saying is this:

Ain't nothin worth the pain of running on an injured (yes injured, not sore nor painful) foot.

Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation it is. Til then, I guess I'm going pool-side.

Wish me good rest, as I've been quite sleepless the past couple days due to work stress.

Love and Blessings to you,

Oh wait... the prompt was to talk about my nutritional goals. Right. Oh boy. I struggle in this. My nutritional goals actually have more to do with my emotional needs. I need to allow myself to feel the feelings instead of stuffing them away. I have stated to myself that I deserve to sit down while eating. It pretty much cuts down on mindless snacking. Also, I deserve no distractions so I can concentrate on the food I'm eating and enjoy being in tune with my body.

There. Done.

    Like you said, time to rest your foot and in the mean time you can nail down the food issues. You can do it.
