I feel like I should say something, but I am TIRED tonight and my mind is struggling to string words together. Solution: bullets.
I ran today. 3.5 miles in 52 minutes, give or take. Possibly less, as I was sidetracked talking to a neighbor for a couple of minutes at one point.
I’m still struggling with hills. But I’m getting there, and I’m happy with that.
After I ran, I made some phone calls, then went to the library to work. I’m getting a lot of work done, even if I am working harder than ever. And I’m having a ton of fun doing it.
I’m thinking about skipping my October race. My income has been lower the past couple of months, so I’m thinking about saving the race money and putting it towards a half marathon in the spring.
Today I found a fantastic food and exercise diary at a discount store for the whopping price of $1.00.
For many, many personal reasons, I really do not want this to be a weight loss blog. Yes, I admit, I could stand to lose a few pounds. But my past is very complex, and for me, losing weight is much more complex than for most others.
It seems like all the other health and fitness blogs out there are also weight loss blogs. This bothers me. Again, not that I’m one to judge- but it seems to me that if you focus on exercising and eating a balanced diet, the rest will work itself out. So why do some bloggers write about the extreme guilt that they feel when they eat a slice of birthday cake, or the ways they are punishing themselves for that cake? Just doesn’t make sense.
But I’ve read that one of the single most effective “diets” out there is to keep a food diary. An HONEST food diary.
I don’t really want to keep a food diary. I just know it will be a challenge, and I’m not sure I want that.
But, it was only $1.00. So I bought it.
I will start on Monday. But I will not be posting my food diary on this website. It is a very personal thing and none of your business. 🙂
This bullet thing sure is easier… maybe I should do this more often.
I’m sure there was something else I was going to say, but I can’t think of it, so I’ll stop here. TGIF!!
