Starting Over...Again

Guys, I'm struggling! Now that I don't have a race to plan for, I'm feeling a little lost. And lazy. I've been telling myself my body needed some time off after running a HALF MARATHON, but I don't want to do anything at all. Why should I run if I don't have a race for which to plan? I need to just GTFOI (get the fuck over it) and start running again before I lose all endurance, and end up gaining all my weight back.

That's my fear. That I'll go back to my old ways and gain it all back. I haven't just been resting from exercising, but I've been eating like my old fat girl as well. This has to stop! Thankfully, I haven't really gained anything back yet, and I'm sitting pretty around 168-169lbs. Rest time is over now, though, and it's time to get back on the horse. I will keep losing, and get to my goal weight this time!

Tomorrow, I WILL run again. I will get back on track, and start fresh. Probably the best thing about running 13.1 is that things like a 10k aren't daunting at all anymore. I'm thinking of running one tomorrow to get back in the swing of things since it's *just* a 10k, after all. :) We'll see how it goes. I might just do half that if things hurt.4

Hold me to it!

  1. I'm also eating like a fat girl in a Krispy Kreme. I'm telling myself this is the last weekend I can splurge before the 31 day Jillian challenge..

    1. That's part of my problem too. I know I've got challenges starting Monday, so I keep telling myself it's ok to eat like this until then. Ugh!

  2. Good for you that you're so quick at recognizing the pattern of unhealthier eating. Being on top of it is what will make you truly succeed this time. You totally know you can do this, you're so close! We've all got your back, Brandi :)

    1. I am scared of Angry Alisha. :) Setting the alarm now because I'll have to get an early run in since Damon has to work.

  5. I'm totally there with you! I'm in a two-week stretch between the half-marathon and a 'little' 5-miler on Sunday. I have run: twice. I need to sign up for something in the Spring immediately to keep me on track throughout the winter!! I so dread the holidays!!!

    1. I'm glad to know I'm not alone! :) I dread the holidays too. And winter in general because it'll be too cold to run outside. I hate the treadmill.
