This weeks update

I have been crazy busy the last week.  I decided to run a 5k, at the Nazi's work so that had me very nervous, not to mention catching back up at "Chicken Flats".  The day that I came back from my vacation I was bombarded with enough work to make a grown man cry.   So between work, setting up day care arrangements, arguing wtih the Nazi, and training for the 5k, I did not get much else accomplished. 

I should have wrote Saturday, after the 5k, but I was so tired I spent the rest of the day on the couch and then went for drinks, which is probably why my week totals suck!  And when I say "suck" they suck.  But anyway, the 5k I did was the first I had ever ran, and I was nervous because it was at the Nazi's work.  Those people have no mercy on anyone when they get something on you they don't ever forget it.  So I wanted to do really good, so that I didn't embarrass my dear hubby.  I ran and I ran, as hard as I could and when I crossed the finish line in a full blown sprint.  People cheered and clapped.  I felt like I had just completed the Boston Marathon.  Then...I threw up.  The clapping and cheering immediately stopped.  Well so much for not embarrassing him.  I didn't place cuz there were freakishly weird healthy people there, which I know didn't work there, but I did do it is 37 minutes, which is my best time every!

So you would think with the fact that I stop eating after 8pm, and ran all week I would pay a visit to my dear friend the slot machine for hell, that he would be some what kind and tell me I have broken the curse of the "plateau".  NOPE...jumped on and what do you know..not a freaking pound lost.  At this point I can no longer afford to be depressed about it, I have to find a solution.  This will be a fourth week with no loss.  If I was on the Biggest Looser, they would have voted my ass off the ranch.  Pack your shit and get out. 

So now here I am, feeling good though because to be honest, I feel good, I feel healthy, and I am very proud of how far I have come, not in my weight loss but in my accountability and follow through.  My lifestyle has truly changed.  So even though I can't count this week as a loss in pounds, I can put myself one step to my ultimate goal, of being a better ME!
