So I did run this weekend, but it wasn't the 10k I was hoping for. I woke up on Sunday a little late, so I thought I'd do a 5k instead. It sucked! My left foot had been hurting since the race and was still hurting then, but I wanted to run, dammit! It killed me. I definitely made whatever's going on there worse. :( I also had really sore hips after the race, which isn't normal for me, but it went away after a couple days so I didn't think too much of it. Not even a mile in, and my right hip started hurting. It was more sore than pain, so I pushed through, but I barely made it 2 miles and had to walk the last 1/3 mile or so home. It was so disappointing! Once I got home, both my hip and foot hurt so badly that I spent most of the day in bed.
I spent the last couple days in full-on pity party mode. I took my laptop to a friend's house last week, and hadn't plugged my fitbit charger syncer thing back in. What was the point? I'm just sitting on my ass, not running. i4l,
kI will NOT let this get me down! I will NOT gain the weight back that I worked so hard to lose.
That's the big fear.
Already, I've been slacking with the eating, and have gone back to my old ways. I've been eating like my former fat girl again, and it has to stop. TODAY. I'm back on the wagon today, and ready to kick some ass! I weighed, and took pictures and measurements, and I've eaten well this morning. I also dusted off the Gazelle (yes, the thing from the infomercials!), and hopped on for 30 minutes. It felt so GREAT to do something! It wasn't as satisfying as a good run, but it'll do for now.
I was really surprised (and thrilled!) to see I haven't gained any weight since the half. I've been fluctuating between 168-169ish, but that's ok. I'm not going to see the 170's again!
Today's new "before" picture. Thankfully, I didn't gain any inches back either! I was really worried about that. The scale hasn't moved up, but surely I've gained some inches since Jillian and I broke up. She and I need to get reacquainted very soon.
