Aw Nuts!

Friday, April 1, 2011

I’m feeling pretty pumped for my half-marathon on Sunday and can’t wait to run it. I carbo-loaded on vegan food from the Better living show and 2 bottles of organic wine on Saturday to prep for my 12 mile run on Sunday. I ended up only running 10 miles, mostly because I got bored and had chub rub. This week I’ve been doing a half-hour on the stairs at the gym and then coming home and running another 4 miles to make sure I’m ready.  I think I’m going to keep this up after the run now that it’s getting nice out and I love running on the waterfront at night.

I signed up for the Cinco de Mayo half-marathon on May 8th. I figure if I keep signing up for races, I have to stay in shape. That’s also less time I can spend binge eating on my couch watching “Teen Mom”.

I’ve decided I’m no longer allowed to buy nuts. Specifically cashews. I was waiting for a prescription to be filled at Safeway and decided to grab a snack. I opted for a box of cashews and ate about half the box before I flipped it over and realized there were 13 servings in that container…. and one serving is 150 calories. You’d think this would make me stop, but I continued until about 3/4’s of the box was gone.

I’m sick of weighing myself every Friday because, the truth is, I just don’t care. I’m in some of the best shape of my life and I feel great. That being said, I think it’s important to the blog to keep doing it.  It’s also good to keep myself accountable. This week’s weight: 161.2

I’m taking today off and running 4 miles tommorow and then the big race on Sunday.

If I don’t make it, please make donations in my name to “The Human Fund”.

    Ok, after reading several of your blogs, I’m beginning to think your love of food is as strong as mine. Let me tell you what: the day you and I can’t exercise is the day we die.

    FYI- I could eat your ass under the table any day.
