The last month and a half (okay, two months) I have had such a hard time with exercise and eating healthy. I pretty much have portion control down (except for that foot long flatbread I devoured last Friday) but I am really burned out on veggies and fruit. I have also hit my limit for consuming yogurt. I know it will pass and I will get back on track but I don't want to gain in the interim. The scale has hovered betweeen 180-182 for the last month, no matter what I eat or how little/much I exercise. I think my body likes this weight, I do NOT. I will keep doing, what I am doing and hope the metabolism understands that 1). I AM NOT feeding you anymore and 2). I AM NOT going to work out 2 hours a day. It all has to level out at some point right? I am consuming between 1400-1600 calories a day and working out at least 45 minutes 3-4 times a week. Hopefully it will kick in.


After a rash moment of thinking about NOT doing the Rock and Roll Half in March, I realized that I would be throwing away $85, letting my fellow MLFC ers down, and disappointing myself once again. I had to come to the realization that as long as I finish (even if it takes the full four hour time limit) I will have done it. So, with that in mind I went for a run yesterday. I know that I need to get at least one double-digit run in before March 24th. I did 7 yesterday, I will do 8 this coming weekend, then a 15K race I have already paid for, and sometime the week of March 11th, I will head out to do 10, 11, or 12 miles and hope for the best. Plus, the finisher's medal is pretty cool!!!

  1. You can do it! Even if you have to walk! I need to schedule my half... I signed up for a bike ride (MS150) from Houston to Austin which is in April, so I have put my half off for the fall, but I am excited about it and dont worry about your time, any time is a PR when its your first half! :)
