It was a pretty chill weekend. I went for a 4 mile run on Saturday and then an 8 mile run on Sunday.
I was feeling pretty proud of myself until I got to work Monday and saw the giant birthday cake sitting at the desk across from me. I love birthday cake. I had a giant piece and didn’t beat myself up about it, since it was nice out and I planned on going for another long run that night.
I walked in the door of my apartment and realized I was still really hungry and couldn’t possibly go for a run on an empty (not really empty) stomach… So I went to Safeway and bought some Triscuits and a brick of sharp cheddar cheese. Then went home and tried to have just a few slices with crackers… I’m sure you won’t be shocked when I tell you that the outcome of this story was me not going for a run and eating an entire brick of cheese while watching Dancing with the Stars. AN ENTIRE BRICK OF CHEESE. That’s like 900 calories! Barf.
I felt like a real Sasquatch on Tuesday but was back on track. I got to the gym after work and a guy I always notice but never talked to called me out for not being at the gym the day before and asked me where the hell I was. I didn’t have the heart to tell him about the cheese so I just said I skipped. What he said next made my year: “It’s just that you’re ALWAYS here. Why are you so dedicated? You’re getting skinny as shit.” Do you hear that, people?! SKINNY AS SHIT! I almost took him into the sauna and made out with him I was so happy. That was enough motivation to make sure I hit the gym for the rest of this week.
The weigh in this morning was 162 lbs. I don’t really care because I can definitely see more definition and tone on my body and my pants fit better too. I don’t have to suck in to button them…
I have my half-marathon coming up next weekend so I’m going to do a 4 mile run on Saturday and a 12 mile on Sunday. I’m pretty sure I can do it but we’ll see.
For those of you in the Portland area, I’ll be working the Portland Better Living Show this weekend slangin’ Dr. Kracker. Feel free to stop by and sample/buy some delicious vegan products! I’m only working Saturday but the show goes on Fri-Sun.
