I’ve been working on a super awesome inspiration wall for about a month now and it’s finally almost done. I put a dry erase board, some bulletin boards, and a new calendar up and they all fell down one by one, which is why I haven’t worked on it for weeks, but I’m finally getting there. I will definitely post pictures when I’m done.
I also joined another dietbet which was $30 and I totally couldn’t afford it but I did it anyway because it has so many other people in it (over 2,000!) that it’s impossible to lose. I’m not going to fuck this one up.
I’m bigger than I’ve been in years and in every picture I see of myself I look like my mom’s cousin who has been obese all her life and now I am turning into her twin. IT IS NOT OKAY. I’m most likely going home in about three months and I cannot let anyone else see me like this. It’s embarrassing.
I’ve barely been working out because I’ve been scheduled at work so early all the time that it ruins my whole day because I have to take a twelve hour nap as soon as I get home. I need to start running again asap. Unfortunately there won’t be any more 5ks to run after next month because it’s too hot in the summer.
Okay, boring update over.
believe it. I was allowed to buy (with my mom’s money) the most glorious running shoes which are going to be delivered to my house sometime next week and they are BEAUTIFUL and they are my favorite colors. I have waited for this moment for YEARS, people. I went to a running specialty store and got my feet and gait analyzed and everything. I felt super guilty that I couldn’t buy the shoes AT the store, but I got them for way cheaper somewhere else.
While I was there I bought a Clif shot gel, and I had bought Clif shot bloks at another store a few weeks ago. When I start training for the half marathon I’m going to see if they work for me on long runs and don’t upset my stomach.
I also didn’t mention that I ran the Run or Dye the weekend before last, and I did really well. I slept better the night before than I usually do before runs and even though I’m dreadfully out of shape and hadn’t been running, I ran a 12:40 mile, which is my fastest since I’ve been tracking my runs with RunKeeper. I had mapped the route before the run and I knew it was going to be over 3.1 miles and it ended up being like 3.74. Last time it was way less, like 2.8 or something, and it was through parking lots. This time it was a path around a little manmade body of water and it was really nice.
I really want to do another run in the next couple of weeks because there are no runs during the summer months here because it gets so stupidly hot. But I don’t want to do one in April because I’m not really ready. I want to do a timed 5k this time instead of having to time it myself. I’m thinking of doing one for Memorial Day that has a really nice route by the harbor but I can’t register until I get paid again and the slots may have all filled up.
Time for dinner and more running!
Going on another mini vacay and I’m absolutely disgusting and none of my clothes fit and I only have ten more days to prepare so that’s cool. I’m being as strict and healthy as I possibly can and working out every day until then.
I have exactly 4 months (16 weeks) to look as good as possible for my annual summer trip home. I might have to fly there this time and if I can lose a lot of weight, I can pack cuter clothes and more will fit in my suitcase. (Logic.)
I hate this post.
Then when I get home… from home… I have to start training for the half marathon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to get started and I kind of wish I could start now but at this point I can barely run a 5k. I’ve started a savings account for new running shoes, which I need desperately!!!!!!!!!
Also I weighed myself this morning for the first time in like a month probably and it was pretty terrible, but what I expected. I would really like to lose at least thirty pounds before August.
BLAH BLAH BLAH
I’m doing the Run or Dye 5k again on Saturday and I am so so so so so fat and out of shape and my fastest time recently has been 41 minutes and I pushed myself so hard that I had a headache for three days.
Which totally explains why I signed up for the fucking Sarasota half marathon for next March.
I had no computer for like a month but now it’s back and I’m doing another 5k in March!!!
