8k – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea


March 3, 2010 By thea

So I’m in this really strange place in my head (which ain’t saying much).

I’m down a 1/2 pound this week…but I totally don’t feel like I deserve to be.  I have been eating like crap, CRAP for a while now, but I keep on staying within my weight range.  It’s like I’ve given my body license to continue to eat like CRAP even though I’m within my range.

Not exactly the most healthy attitude in the world to have.

I should be eating like AWESOME and maintaining.  That should be my goal. I shouldn’t be trying to see how much I can get away with.

Anyhoo, I’ve updated my goals for this challenge.  They were pretty much the same as the last challenge, I just changed up my running goal a bit.  Instead of running so many miles on specific days, I just need to meet my weekly mileage goal.  I’ll be increasing the goal by 10% every week.

If I can keep up with that, I should have no problems with my 8k and 10k in a few months!

So, can I confess that I’ve been good?

Is that really confessing?  I don’t know…confessing always has such a bad connotation.

I guess my biggest thing is that I’m off my running game.  Between snow days and surgeries and blah blah blah, I just haven’t been running.  It makes training for an 8k in April and a 10k in May kind of hard.  Since, you know, I have to RUN those races.

I haven’t been counting my points either, but really I’m O.K.  with that.  I just think that I’ve been listening to my body more and really trying to pay attention to what goes into it…I don’t feel like I NEED to count points anymore.  I’m still going to WW meetings at least once a month, but I’m kind of digging not counting.  It’s a nice place to be!

So that’s all I got!

Don’t hate me because I’m mostly flawless.
