Ahhhhhhhhh! This server just isn't working for me lately. I can't log on 80% of the time. So, my apologies folks.
Anyhoo, things are on track for the most part. I've been focusing on eating as many fruits and veggies as possible. Drinking zero diet sodas and loading up on water. Seems to be working. I even treated myself to an old fashioned coca cola this evening after my run! That diet stuff is poisonous. One of my clients gave me a cliffs notes verson of what aspartame can do to you and that was enough for me. *shiver*
Still training for my Thanksgiving Day marathon! I ran 5 miles today. I was supposed to run 10 miles this weekend for my long run and I woke up Saturday with a migraine. It screwed up my whole weekend and I wasn't able to run more than 3 miles on Sunday. Imagine having a migraine and then bouncing around. My head felt like it was going to explode. So I decided to make an executive decision and skip that long run. :) This week is a step back to just a 7 miler on Sat or Sun. Now, the trick is that I'm going out of town for a doula convention in Nashville. So, I'm going to have to work it in somehow. I'm determined to do it! I'm so excited about being in a hotel room alone! LOL I mean, I'll be busy all day, but by God I'll be ordering room service and sleeping snuggly all by myself Thursday through Sunday. Ahhhh........... I saw on the hotel's website that they have a gym. If worse come to worse I'll do a very boring 7 miles on the treadmill. Or I can wake up extra early and go run outside before my 8am start up time for convention. We'll see...
So, tonight I had some Trader Joe's chocolate soy nuts. I'm thinking...5g fiber, soy....can't be that bad. 5 points for 1/4 cup! I at least had 1/2 a cup. 10 stinkin' points! Thanks you Jesus for flexies! Thank you Jesus that I'm also training for a marathon and earning a mad amount of acitivity points per week. Phew!
I can't wait for Fall. Leaves changing, heat letting up, my birthday (October 25!!!!) and then my marathon in November. Lots going on...
