Last week was a rough week for me. I got some kind of stomach bug and i felt terrible from Sunday to Thursday last week. It was strange my stomach was doing flip flops but I also had this terrible headache. I am not a headache person, so I am not used to having that kind of pain in my head. For those of you who suffer for headaches, I am sorry!

Needless to say, I only did 2 easy runs during the week, no strength training at all. I thought of doing that kind of exercise made me feel lik...

I finally saw a new number on the scale, 192.5. If I am 90% on plan this week I could possibly be flirting with the 180s. I cannot believe I am less than 20 pounds from reaching my goal weight, or what I think my goal weight should be, right now I am shooting for 175. I am tall, 5'11" and most of the weight charts say I should be 133 to 179. I am too tall for 133! I just want to look healthy and strong. From the BMI calculators (I know they are an estimate) I only have about 10 pounds ...

All I have to say is OMG. I did a 5K on Saturday and my goal was to just break 29:00. My previous best time last July was 29:26 on a very flat course.

Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Overall I had a great weekend. Friday night we celebrated V-Day with the family. We made homemade pizza and swapped little gifts. It was a nice family night.

Saturday morning I was supposed to do a 4 mile V-day race. We had some freezing rain the day before so it was in question if the race would happen or not. There was not a email canceling so I went downtown to the race. I saw some volunteers and asked them if there were any ...

Today is a sleepy day, I just want to take a nap. I cannot believe it is already Thursday.

Eating wise the week didn't start out great. I was just flat out hungry. By Sunday I was finally able to get the hunger under control and got back on track with eating within my goal range.

Saturday I did that Bridge Ceremony 6K run. It was crowded, my goal to to keep it at a tempo pace which is 9:45-10:00 pace. There was still snow on the ground so we needed to be careful and it was 15 degrees...
