I think I tried to fit too many ingredients in my salad bowl today.

Not my best run but at least it happened. My goal is to start building my distance rather than just getting faster each week. 

Plus it was windy and uphill on my return trip. Double whammy.

I gotta be honest. I’m a little miffed that my local library doesn’t have any books on Kate Middleton at the library or on the electronic reserve. 

I mean who wouldn’t want to read about her?

Weekly Weigh-In

Down 1.6. That damn 20 lb pound mark is so close yet so far away. 2.1 lbs to be exact. Maybe this will finally be the week. I don’t think I have anything big or monumental this weekend that could throw me off. 

Not like this past weekend where my family spent about 6 hours on Saturday eating. Really my uncle just kept putting out more food about every hour. 

Good news is I got a run in during my lunch break, and I was down to an 11 minute mile. Down from 12:30 two weeks ago. Now to work on my distance and going more than a mile at a time. At least I’m getting faster right?

Confession

I’m 31 years old and I still don’t know how to manage my wavy/curly hair. 

Tried a new method this morning but it was still wet when I left the house and I have no idea how it looks right now. 

Maybe I should go in the bathroom and look.

Ugh. Kids these days

My boss and I just had to educate some of our student-athletes on the awsesomeness of the original American Gladiators.

Weekly Weigh-in

Just going to come out and say it. This week wasn’t great numbers wise. Or eating wise. At this this past weekend. 

Going into the weekend I had gone for a few runs, and I’d been eating well, and looked like I was going to get close to hitting the 20 pound total mark. 

Then the weekend happened. I traveled to a work banquet where I drank more beer than planned and ate more food than planned. Then I went home and hung out with my parents where I ate candy (not too much but more than I have in the last few months) and pizza, and just more food in general. 

But I was still able to be down more than a half pound from last week, despite actually gaining weight over the weekend. This week I hope to stay on point, but I know that I’ll be heading to Missoula to see family for Easter, and we do a huge brunch/lunch on Saturday where I’m sure to over eat. 

The good news is my mom and I are planning to get some M hikes in, and at least I’m not expecting too much from this week. I do what I can to move forward and lose weight without cutting out the things in my life that I enjoy. I’ll get to my goal someday. It may take longer than some people, but for me it’s really important that I do it in a way that I can maintain. That I keep a lifestyle I can enjoy. 

So there’s that. 16.3 total pounds lost is not something to get mad about. I’ll just bring the awesome to this week.
