Racing & Chasing my goals!

I ran my first race on Monday.  5 miles or 8k and I loved it.  It was tough but it rocked.  I completed it nowhere near the front of the pack but not dead last either.   My time was 48:36 and it was my best time yet doing 8k.  There was this hill that would not end for nothing, it just went on and on and on and me and M were about dead when we go to the top.  Fortunately they had a strategically placed water station right at the top. haha.  So, I think I'm doing 9k this weekend (not a race) and then there is a 10k race on the 26th that we might do as well.  We'll see.  I'm going to see how I like 9k first and we'll go from there.  As I was running up the hill I was thinking to myself - theres no f'n way I'm running any more races this year, this is it for me!  But of course when I'm all done and I come back to my senses I actually am excited to run another race.  Who knows.. lol  I may have discovered a new addiction. 
I went to WW tonight and lost 1.6lbs. Obviously I'm happy with that but I up over 3 last week so I still have to get the rest off.  It will happen, what can I say.  Its supposed to rain the rest of the week so I'm worried I can't run and I'm pissed I didn't get my lazy ass out of bed this morning to run.... oh well. 
Big Brother night......  Go Britney!! I got $10 on that girl, she better win.  Night peeps xoxoxox

... that seedless grapes aren't actually seedless.  They have seeds in them but they are small and soft enough to eat.

Today I learned...

... that I have new follower.  Welcome Robert!! 

no running today, we're supposed to get hit with the hurricane dead on!  I just hope the power doesn't go out, and if it does, not for too long!  Ha..  Poker game at my dad's today since noone will be golfing, which is what every guy in my family does on a saturday around here. 

I went to Weight watchers on the Wed and was up!  Way up!  Its been so humid here I think I might be retaining water... but it was also an eye opener..  I'm getting back on plan and the plan is staying within my points which is what i've been struggling with the most - even though I'm writing everything down. 
Wednesday evening after my bf got home I had a bit of a mental breakdown.  Its just one of those things that all people go thru that struggle with their weight.... its just exhausting.  I ran 4 times this week, I track what I eat, and I watch what I eat (even though its not perfect), I drink a ton of water everyday and to still be up over 3 lbs is just not f'n fair!  I'm so tired of it being a constant struggle and but oddly enough as defeated as I get sometimes giving up is not an option. 

So, I did really good the next day with staying within my points and was down over 3lbs on my home scale.  Just gotta realize one good day is not was makes me successful.....  its long term dedicated and rededication that will get me to my goal.

Hope you all have a great weekend...  to my fellow eastcoasters DON'T BLOW AWAY!!
