Second things...uh...second. I bought on ebay a reflective vest so I can be
So...in true geeky runner form, I took a self picture (with flash to get the full alien look) of me in my running vest prior to my run last night.
|Could that be any sexier??|
And I stole a picture from my running group showing what a group of reflective vests look like all together...aliens, I say! (No, I'm not in the photo).
I'll just focus on one of my many "problems" on this blog. For those that are recent additions to my blog, my blog technically started out as a weight loss/healthy eating blog to help me get off the last 10 pounds I was struggling with so I could get to a "goal" weight. I finally got them off (for a total of about 90 pounds lost). After that, since I became more into running and found some running blogs I enjoyed, and also while training for the marathon last year, my blog turned kind of into a running blog.
But in the past year +, I've probably gained back 15-20 pounds! What started with 5 pounds turned into 10 and last I checked was 15! But I haven't even weighed myself in about a month! And I've been eating crap! And this is all just so depressing for me! So I really want to lose about 20 pounds. And it all started again the other night when Janet Jackson was talking about Nutrisystem on Jay Leno. No, I'm not doing Nutrisystem. I know that's not the right way to go (at least for me). But sometimes you just get so frustrated that you think thoughts like "Maybe I just won't eat all day!" or "Maybe I'll just do Nutrisystem because then I won't have to worry about figuring out what to eat." But actually, I'm kind of a mini-pro at knowing the "right" things to eat. You have to be to lose 90 pounds in the first place (if you did it the right way).
So I just need to start implementing good eating behaviors again. I emailed my cousin because she has always had her struggles with weight too (although she is pregnant so it's not too much an issue for her right now). Anyway, I emailed her and she gave me some
So, that's that. I have a 10-mile run to do Saturday with my running group. And we do it in a very hilly neighborhood. And I haven't run more than 7 miles since the marathon (did 7 miles twice this month though)...so I'm a little nervous about these 10!
