Down and not quite out...

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Going through a thousand and one emotions right now. Just celebrated my 10 year wedding anniversary and I am excited but now the vacation is over and that joy is slowing dissipating. On the flight home whatever I caught took me down for a week and my husband is no nurse so while I was dying lying in bed any happy effects of the vacay were evaporating. Now for the most part I am healthy but so has my stupid uncontrollable hunger for fast food or just food that someone else makes. I had gotten to 222 after my bed rest and that knocked most of the vacation weight off I was EXCITED, but then I had to go back to work, take care of the dog and drive my STUPID 82 mile round trip commute. This has led me back to fast food breakfasts, lunches and some dinners…..when I saw the scale last it was 226 or so… MAN those poor choices are now bringing me down while I write this, and I know I need to get my rear into gear. While I was sick my community Biggest Loser competition had a mandatory weigh-in…this was the night I almost went to Urgent Care 'cause I was in a whole lotta pain. So that took any grand prizes away because I was not there, so now this year is matching last year where I did not do so well.
For some reason I am writing this blog before I splurge on and on about my vacay, but moping seems to be where my head is. This Sunday I am doing a 6K, have not even trained like I should cause I use my Plantar Fasciitis as a crutch and in 2 weeks after that I have a 15K (my first) with hills that I also have not trained for as planned……I feel defeated but I will get through the motions somehow. Have a lot of other stuff to moan about but I need to get back to feeding the beast at work….more soon.

    Hi Renee,
    I hope writing this blog got some of those feelings out! It is horrible to feel as those you are losing ground. My PF was a huge issue for me, lasting 1.5 years and unfortunately I still don't run much. Would love to even do a 5K right now. I am focusing on crossramp elliptical and cycling whenever I can so that I don't feel bad about not being able to run. The lbs WILL come off once you have your head in a good space - you know how to do this. I remember watching you racing down the numbers a few years ago and being so inspired by you. I was so EXCITED when you accepted my friend request because I wanted to be like you. We have both had good years and bad years. 2013 is going to be a good year. Let the past go. Schedule some incremental trainings and get blogging and journalling. Reward yourself, even if it is just for getting back to where you were a few weeks ago. DON'T LOOK BACK. I am here for you, with you

    Post holiday blues i know them well. Try to remember the great time you just had and start looking forward to the next exciting thing such as a good run lol.

    Driving is hard to avoid rubbish no easy answer fruit water and sugar free gum is my answer.
