A little white lie

Nutrition is really places a big part in my running mood. Yesterday, I was doing awesome on nutrition until dinner. My child wanted to go to teriyaki, she loves the soup and gyoza so we indulge her request and headed to our favorite teriyaki place. Once there I really wanted some fried rice to add to the few pieces of chicken I would still from my husbands plate. The rice was unusually salty and for someone who hasn't been eating a lot of carbs it just didn't sit well. As it got later I really didn't want to go workout, but I finally did. I hoped on the treadmill about 8:15 to get my 5 mile tempo run in. The first mile was slow and Jillian Michael would have been yelling at me to get my hands off the treadmill. the next 3 miles were at my tempo goal or a little above but they were rough. My legs actually felt good, but my stomach felt like 100lbs.  I pushed through and finished with 5.25 miles crossed completed.

Remember a while back I mentioned that I need to get a new drivers licence. Well, when I went in I lied about my weight. I took 25lbs off what my old licence says.  The lady was like want to change anything, I said yes my weight is oneseventyfive..she was like 145, I was like HA I wish, no I said onesenvetyfive. So there you have it, my new license puts me closer to my goal weight, now I just have to kick some ass and get there.  What do you think do I look younger then I did when I had my old picture taken in 2004?


What's on my plan for the weekend, a short run today, a birthday party tomorrow and then a long run on Sunday. I am thinking I want to sneak in a Spin class on Saturday morning but we will see how I wake up.
What's your plan for the weekend?

  4. I do not run well after dinner, either, especially on that kind of food. You look great in the photo, I definitely would have guessed that was the younger one!
