When I came back from BlogHer in2010, I had a gift certificate to Lisa Leonard that I needed to use, and I used it to buy a necklace that said Runner on it. I needed it. Then I got pregnant, had a baby, etc. I didn’t really wear it much after that. I didn’t think I deserved it any more.
I realize that I am only two sessions back in to 5K training. I realize that I am still a LONG way from meeting my fitness/health goals, but I think I can wear it again. I can use it remind myself what I am, what I want to be.
I signed up for my third(!?!) race this fall. I think it will likely be my last one for the year. Then it is all winter indoor running until spring hits.
I haven’t posted a weight in awhile, because I’ve been wanting to battle back from the post surgery slide, but I owe it to myself to be honest about it.
I want this next week to be the week that I hit 30 pounds lost, without the benefit of a post surgery inability to eat. I think it is incredibly doable with me. I’ve done a great job of tracking all week, even the cookies and less than good food. I’ve been more active than I have been since I started WW. It is totally doable.
I am setting a goal of 240 with a little reward for myself at that point. I have two outdoor races when the risk of snow is real. I want to get some cool weather running tights/pants. Even if they are just cheap ones from Target.
