I gained 12 pounds after I said I'd never get up there again.
I wallowed in self pity, kept asking why, how... and I would make excuses.
I found out... my excuses, in fact, is what helped it creep up on me..
it's the week of my period, I always gain an extra pound
I can't run
I always gain a few in the winter...
what happened is one pound showed up before the other disappeared etc.
It all started after my
so long ago. I had an issue running past 8 miles in training. I started to get a pain behind my left knee. I would walk and it would work it's way out, but then come back. I did my
in a respectable time but figured I needed to do a different running approach for the next one. That was October, 2013. I have not run another
or even tried to start the training.
I went to PT and found I had a tighter (insert muscle name I forgot!) on the left than the right and she gave me stretches to do, etc. She did not want me running for x# of months so I didn't. I wanted to heal.
Well after that period of time I was coming along with my horse Turtle and put more effort into that. I started fostering dogs again and hey! another excuse! The little extra time I had in the morning now is being eaten up by a foster dog. see how that happens?
so, I have gone up 2-4 sizes. I feel horrid. I am now working on getting back to where I was when I would MAKE the time to run a
three times a week. That is when I felt at my best.
I know it won't happen tomorrow
but with a progressive amounts of tomorrows, it will
and then, hopefully, I'll be wiser when the excuses start showing up!
