Updates and Giveaways

So after my half marathon I went back into the boot...


I swear this thing is possessed by the devil. The second I put it on I start taking pity on myself and start trying to convince myself that it's ok to eat whatever I want and not work out, because it's not worth working out if I can't run...duh. I was determined not to let this happen this time around with the boot (last time I let myself eat ice cream EVERY DAY and I only made it to the gym for strength or biking maybe twice a week!!). But I put it on yesterday and before I could even make it to my car I started thinking that I should get 800 calorie Starbucks for breakfast instead of my 300 calorie planned breakfast!! But I made it through the day with only consuming about 1500 calories and I made it to the gym! Today was the total opposite. I went to the doctor this morning and she totally freaked me out and it was pouring rain and by the time I walked from the parking lot into work my boot was soaked. So I went to 1 meeting and then just left work...and got Chipotle for lunch! I really wanted ice cream too but Haywards wasn't open yet. Luckily by the time I got home I was way to lazy to go back out into the rain for ice cream. But then I found a box of Jr Mints and a bag of Twizzlers and my day just went downhill from there. I ate a lot, tried to work from home, fell asleep for 3 hours, woke up and didn't go to the gym...horrible day.

Really, is there anything better than Coffee Oreo ice cream???

But this HAS to end at the end of the week. Work is starting a contest to lose 10% of your body weight in 10 weeks. A little lofty of a goal but I'm going to sign up for it. I certainly need an extra source of motivation and there are prizes!! So I'll be updating as I make progress with that soon!

And speaking of prizes, head on over to Gourmet Runner, she is giving away a RoadID!! All real runners have a RoadID, so head on over there for a chance to win one for free!

  1. Is icecream season closed for business??? BOO!!! That boot blows- I almost had to wear one in college after nasty running injuries. How long are you in it for?
