What a week.
Last week I was unable to run during the week due to work stuff. I missed my weekly runs and was none to happy with missing them.
Friday I was laid off.
Friday after cleaning out my office I came home and went for a run. I went as far and as fast as I could. I needed to cleanse my mind and get some 'focus'. I took a hilly trail and I threw myself at that trail. I ran to a portion where the trail goes under the highway by way of foot bridge - what I didn't know is the foot bridge sways and vibrates due to the traffic overhead. I thought I was getting dizzy so I turned around and headed home.
I didn't sleep well that night. I got in about 2.5 hours sleep.
I had a 11 mile run scheduled the next day.
I managed 5.5 before I was exhausted - physically and emotionally.
I came home and crashed.
Since then my eating habits have been reckless - not bad, not good, no thinking behind them.
I am getting my miles in yes - but I need to get this bag of saltwater taffy away from me!
I read this post on moving 4 life and she hit the nail on the head. That is me that Shawn discribes.
Its time to refocus. I can do this.
In the past ten years I have been up (240) and down (135) the scale time and again. This time I am on the 'up' side of the scale. I want to loose the weight. I figure the humiliation of putting this on the internet and the friends that I have told of this to hold me accountable just might make this happen. It is going to take a lot of encouragement and support. Not to mention the hard work on my part. Follow my struggle here.
