So, I should probably do a little catch up. :) My weight hasn't been dropping as dramatically as it did when I started the elimination diet, I haven't started tracking again yet either.
I'm under 200lbs again. WOOHOO!!! I've consistently weighed around 198-199 for about a week now, so I'm pumped about that. FINALLY. I'm closing in on my pre-off birth control, pre-all this nonsense weight.
Now I can keep the momentum and keep treating myself well and I'd love to get even lower to help my running, etc.
Speaking of running, my heel is MUCH better - I ran two half marathons in the last two weeks and I made it through them without hurting my heel. They weren't great by any means, I wasn't trained back up enough to race, I was just kinda running them long, but I made it through both, didn't have to DNS or DNF for any races I've registered for this year, and I have two (three) new medals to show for it. I got a medal for doing a pirate themed 5K a little while after my last blog post. :P hahahaha.
Here are a few pictures from my races just to keep things interesting:
Pre-Pirate 5K - temporary tattoo on the shoulder, skulls headband of course
Pirate race SWAG:
1st Come back half - Maple Leaf Half Marathon:
Pre-race outfit shot - lost the armwarmers after mile 1.
Super cool glass medal from a local glass blower:
2nd come back half - Charlotte Covered Bridges Half Marathon
Me running up to the bridge where I rolled my ankle and fell. :P I'm fine.
By the way I SUUUPER duper love that running skirt - it's the SkirtSports Happy Girl skirt. I thought the Gym Girl was long enough to stay put on me, but it doesn't do as well in less humid than AL climates. The Happy Girl works perrrrrfectly. And that color is so great!
P.S. - bonus running skirt shot since that one is so far away - this is kind of a mix between my two race outfits, too. Tank I made, skirt from 2nd race:
