Weigh-In Wednesday or not.....

It's Wednesday again and once again I didn't submit my weight to the BL challenge going on over in MLFC. I am not doing what I need to do, plain and simple. I am sporadically running, sporadically eating healthy, and sporadically tracking. So, I know what the scale says-the same thing it has said for the last month (okay, 2 months) 182. I guess I should be happy that with all of my bad choices and lack of physical activity it isn't higher, but I am not. I am just waiting for my weight to magically go down without any effort on my part. I do feel like I am putting in some effort, I watch what eat (mostly) and I try to make an effort to get out and do something at least 4 days a week. Plus, I ran 10 freaking miles on Saturday-that should count for something right????

 I really want to lose more, but I am struggling so much in my head and with my energy levels. I am on Spring Break this week, and that wreaks havoc on my "schedule". Take today for instance, it is 2:00 in the afternoon and I am still in bed. I didn't eat breakfast and going for a run looks like a pretty slim possibility. I met two of my friends for sushi yesterday, and overate the fried stuff.

 Tomorrow I am meeting another friend for Chinese food. Friday were are going out with friends, and Saturday we have a neighborhood crawfish boil and I am so due for a night of drinking.  I don't know if I will run at all this week, which translates to really bad news since I am only 11 days away from my half.

I have plenty of things to motivate and encourage me (7,000 awesome friends in MLFC), and I just spent $150 on new clothes that I don't want to get too tight.


  1. 10 miles???!!!! way to go!!! thats awesome! I ran my first 10k Saturday, but thats my current longest distance to date!! how do you recover from long runs? I am still sore... and its Wednesday!

    1. Melissa, I discovered when I was training for my first half three years ago, that if I did a "recovery" walk for about 30 minutes it really helped with the soreness. I just keep moving afterwards, drink about 2 liters of water, and some coffee. I have done this on my 6,8,and this run and I couldn't believe how much better I felt.

  2. Major props to you on the 10 miles! You should be really proud of yourself. And it sounds like you've got the right mindset to get back on track.. you can do this!

  3. 10 miles dang!! Awesome!! Those clothes look amazing!!

  4. I too am doing the BL challenge and haven't been weighing in either...still hanging on to all my weight...just yo-yoing up and down the same 2-3 lbs. Hopefully knowing I'm not alone and seeing you run a half will be enuf to get me going and actually show some progress by final weigh-in time.
