Just call me Lucky! July 31, 2010

It has been a remarkably lucky day for me.  So now because I am bragging I am sure the rest of the day will only be unlucky.  But that is ok with me it’s almost 6pm so there is not much of it left.  So here is the Lucky list:

1) Ran 10 miles this morning with out a) crying and b) escaping blidness from the dreaded acid sweat in the eye.

2) Finallly finally got my hair done.  (Photos to follow).  Bless you Mindy for making me look & feel 15 yrs. younger.

3) Got a front row parking space at the mall.

4) Purchased a fab new VSX bra at Victoria Secret that was mismarked…making it almost $20 cheaper!  I pointed it out & they honored the price.  Woohoo to VS.

5) On a whim went into Banana Republic and found the $80 boyfriend jeans I have been wanting on sale…then an extra 30% off…..score $21 for those babies.  Yes Yes Yes. 

6) Double bit of happiness at Banana Republic….Everything I tried on…I needed a smaller size.

7) Body Shop the Body Butters were buy 2 get 1 free.  Oh they have the best coconut body butter.  It smells so yummy and will be perfect for our vacation to the Virgin Islands next month.

8) Decided to skip the food court at the mall.  VICTORY.

9) Walked into Coldwater Creek where they had a fab customer appreciation table set up with fresh fruit and tons of raw veggies.  What a gift to me for skipping the food court.

10) Pulled into Barnes and Noble where once again a front row parking was waiting for me.  (I know the benefits of parking farther away and walking…blah blah.)  But once in awhile it is just nice. 

11) Sending my hubby pics of  my hair and him saying he “likey”.

What a great day.  I really needed it.  It’s been a rough couple of weeks.  Now off I go heading home to make some chicken breast and hang with my doggies! 

I look a little wide in this one…but I swear  tried on only size 6 or 8’s today!


GUILT July 30, 2010

So today I have some things on my mind.  Really 1 huge thing and 1 somewhat huge.  The huge thing I am thinking about is GUILT.  I have a lot of guilt over my diet and excerscise plan.  When I overeat and know that I am entering into the realm of excessive and uncontrolled eating I feel an overwhelming amount of guilt.  And of course it can for me become the cliche of causing me stress and shame which then causes me to eat more and try and stuff those feelings wayyyyy down deep inside me.  The second cause of guilt for me is over excercise.  If I miss a workout or if I think that somehow I did not push my workout to my maximum ability I feel huge huge huge guilt.  Guilt is such an ugly thing.   It makes me feel such shame at myself.  It really can affect the rest of my life because I get in such a slumpy frumpy sad mood.  The second somewhat huge thing…..the way I feel when I read others blogs.  Some days I am so motivated by what others are writing and doing in there lives.  I get a lot of  ideas and sometimes even feel proud of others.  On the other side of that…I compare myself.  I compare my workouts to others, my diet to others.  The quanity and quality of food I eat to others.  And I seem to always be far far behind those I read about.  It makes me feel really bad about myself.  I have an inner dialogue that is really awful. 

So that is what I want to know…Do you have guilt over food or excercise?  If so how do you handle it?  If you don’t why do you think that you are able to keep that in perspective?

The bike and me

So when it comes to bike riding this is me:

  I would be the one on the right 🙂

Now this is who I want to be:

  I think you can clearly see the difference.  So last night I went out and got on my husbands bike and did 3.5 miles.  And it was hard.  And my butt hurt and it was extremely uncomfortable.  But I did it and I will do it again.  Because I know it will make me stronger and have more endurance and in the end will help my running.   I am now searching for tips or tricks to make riding better.  You never know it could be a new obsession just waiting to happen.

Happy happy Friday!  Thank  goodness it is finally here.  Geesh I thought it would never come.  So today’s run was  really really tough.  As a matter of fact this whole week has been tough running.  My legs felt like lead this morning.  I could barely breathe.  I know it is the hottest week of the year but come on!  Why does it have to feel like my first week of running.  Hmm let’s see just 6 days ago I was able to complete 10 miles without stopping…today barely just barely 3.5 and I felt awful.  I get soooo frustrated.  I want it all RIGHT NOW!  Anyway my last posts have been full of complaints and I am not blind to this.  I want to be more positive I really do.  I want to be here posting oh yes everything is wonderful, my diet is perfect, my excerscise oh yes perfect, my job, yes also perfect, my life …yup perfect!  But in reality that is not the way it is.  On a somewhat positive note..I started doing the elliptical at work on my lunch hour.  I do about 30 minutes / 3 miles.  I can’t do a higher intensity than that because I sweat to much to then return back to work.  So yay me!  <-<-<- whatever!

Oh yes and they predict this to be the hottest weather of the decade this weekend!  OH JOY!
