So, for the last couple of weeks, I've been loosely tracking my food. As in, writing it all down and sharing it with a friend through email.
If I weren't running, I'd be gaining at a steady rate.
And for the last week....I haven't been running.
Something weird happened to me mentally when I experienced the half marathon course. At first, I was really down about it, then I felt as if I were finished. I'm not sure what went on in my head or why, but I do know what I need to do.
Feel good about myself.
That last one has been rough lately. Beyond the feeling like a loser for not getting in the proper workouts and overeating, I just feel...unattractive. Greasy, even. Yuck.
Where does this strange stuff come from? I mean, I know I'm not just gross. I'm not (and never will be) the kind of woman that people stop to star at, either. I'm a pretty average-looking person. No one can feel like they look great all the time. Just as it is normal to experience periods of sadness and periods of joy, it's normal to feel good about how you look sometimes and not so good about it at others.
I know the answer, the key to feeling good about myself:
Guess what I'm going to focus on this week?
