Happy Monday, everyone! Today was fairly uneventful for me and I don't have a lot to report.
First, my weigh in had me at 156.6 today. That is a 2.2 lb loss for the week. But last week was a 6 pound gain so I was really hoping to lose more.
But I shall be grateful I was down at all considering that by Thursday night I went totally crazy with my eating!! All was fine until I decided to try some new potato chips that my husband bought. Mistake! Who can eat just one? Then we had a large dinner on Friday night which included too much pasta and bread. Ugh! This weekend included a quick trip to Seattle because my niece had her first birthday party. While I thought I would do okay with this, I ended up doing terribly. It was like the see-food diet all day on Saturday and when I went to bed that night I felt absolutely miserable. Truly, it was the volume of food that did it, because nothing by itself was really that bad.
Sunday morning I woke up feeling terrible and my stomach was rebelling. I ate a little breakfast, but I was nauseous the whole day, but also hungry which was weird. I had the new oatmeal from McDonald's for lunch which settled my stomach a bit, but then the afternoon brought Arby's and that was a mistake. Needless to say, today's scale number is better than it could be and hopefully as worse as it will get since I'm back to business now.
While I didn't get up before work to run today because my stomach had lingering twinges of nausea, I will definitely run tomorrow. Hopefully this week will bring about 4 runs, at least 12 miles. I'm still trying to get back on a good running schedule since last month's running debacle.
And that is about all there is today. I'm trying to chalk up the slip as just that, a slip. But there have been too many lately! I have to keep in check! I need to stay motivated and keep focused.
I am considering signing up for a half marathon. I think the training would do me good, would be a great motivator, but that's also why I'm not sure I'm ready. I keep watching the registration for the Seattle Rock n' Roll Half on June 25th. It hasn't filled up yet, but I know it will soon. I want to register, but something is holding me back. Part of it is fear and part of it is money, and still another part of it is something else I can't quite name. It's $115 for this event and that is a lot of money right now. I have to be sure I will do it before taking the jump. I keep hoping it will sell out and then I won't have to think about it anymore. What a lovely attitude, huh? There are other events in the world, but if it's meant to be with the R&R in Seattle, it will be.
So, for those that have done one (or more) of the R&R series half or full marathons, would you recommend one for my first (and possibly only) half?
