Friday 9/6/13

Wouldn't you know I would come back and start journaling publicly again on a week when I gain weight! Yep, that happened. I gained 2.4 this week. I knew it was coming and it is what it is. We spent 3 days at Disneyland this past weekend. It was the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. I didn't participate in either of the longer runs but Vern and I did do the 5K. It was super hot and we walked it. Funny thing, I ended up walking over 15 miles that day! I made the choice to throw caution to the wind and eat all if the wonderful junk that Disneyland has to offer. And, of course, it's so difficult to get back on track my week was on again off again. Anyhow...yeah...I gained 2.4 pounds and it's done and I'm putting it behind me and moving on. 

I've actually been doing much better in the last few weeks and I'm down a little over 3 pounds since the last time I posted.

My head is in a much better place than it was back in June...thank goodness! My toe is completely healed and I'm run/walking again. In fact, I'm headed out for a training run this morning. 

I'm signed up for all three races for Tinkerbell Half Marathon Weekend in January. I'll be doing the 5K on Friday, the 10K on Saturday, and the half marathon on Sunday! I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Vern has signed up to do the 5K and the 10K with me! How cool is that!? I'm doing the Half with my friends, Tiam & Rick. I am so looking forward to it!!

I'm doing some things recently in planning and preparing to stay on plan more easily during the work week, like preparing my breakfasts and lunches for the week on Sunday. I'll post more about that later. 

So there we go, I just wanted to post a little update about what I've been up to and where I'm at. If you're reading this, I thank you for sticking with me through the ups, downs, and "I can't do this anymores!" I'm back, my head is in the game and I need the accountability and support that this journal gives me. 

Let's all have a happy and healthy weekend!!

...and my tracker for the day...

The Tinkerbell half marathon sounds like a blast! What a cool name for it. I have to admit, I'm kind of jealous!
