An awesome thing happened to me today. While I was running on the treadmill at my college’s fitness center, I became “that girl”. I was watching Ellen when I realized it… I was seriously smiling and laughing out loud…while running… I know I enjoy running and when it’s a good run I will be grinning a bit. But today I straight up caught myself laughing out loud…and then realized I had been smiling for quite some time hahah. It clicked to me today that I have now gotten to the point where when I run I can zone everything else out, I’m seriously in my own little world. AND I LOVE IT.
Side note- Tapering is really hard. It makes me feel as though I’m not doing enough…But after Hollie talked to her dad it really gave me confidence that I am doing this right. So I’m trying to battle my mind and accept that I need to give the legs a little rest before the BIG DAY WOOO! WHICH BY THE WAY IS 17 DAYS FROM TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMGZZZZZZZ~!!!!
On the weigh in front… I was up 1.1 today. I honestly HONESTLY do not know how it is possible. I didn’t go over my weeklys or my activity points, I ate my healthy guidelines, lots of milk, protein at mostly every meal. Eating the good carbs. The only thing I can think of is that I either 1) Put on muscle, or 2) I had a huge loss (2.5lbs) last week and my body is evening out? (is that a real possibility or did I make that up?)
The weirdest part about it all… I have actually “felt” thinner this week haha. Like I was loving my legs after working out this evening. But whatever- Next weekend I’m going home to weigh in at weight watchers because I havent yet for Feb and I dont want to do it after the marathon (incase of water weight gain or something I dont know I dont wanna risk it). ALSO if I go home I can run a 5k that Saturday- which will be fun/ nice mix to get me even more excited for the marathon 🙂 EEEEK!
Are you all thawed out?? It’s not snowing here anymore- Thank goodness! BRING ON THE WARM WEATHER…PUH PLEASE.Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow yesterday..sooo this means he predicts an early spring! LETS HOPE HE’S RIGHT!
Q- Do you guys have any big plans for the weekend? Have you ever caught yourself doing something silly in public?
