But I have none of that in me today...
Luckily, today is NikeMom's photo Friday, and I haven't played along in a couple weeks. So here's a recap of my week in photos.
Sunday - Run
"Official" race photos were posted yesterday...evidence that Walter and I ran together... I might have to buy this one.*
Monday - Eat
Elsie, Mik, Betty, me and some other NRH** and the husbands went to dinner Monday night at a relatively new restaurant - Bing Crosbys. I love the advertisement for a new shop in the forefront...hahahahah. Oh, and the lobster-mashed potatoes were TO. DIE. FOR.
Tues-Thurs - Log
I don't write much about my weight, or losing weight on this blog, other than to occassionally mention that if I lost a few lbs, I might a) run faster and b) have fewer injuries, and you may have looked at some of my photos and wondered about that... I'll be brief about the diet history, but I've been on JUST. ABOUT. EVERY. DIET. KNOWN. TO. MANKIND. and guess what.
Many of them have worked.
- In college, I lost about 25 lbs on WeWa.
- Later on, I lost about 20 lbs just by working out.
- After that, I lost about 20 lbs on the single-girl's diet (popcorn and whatever I could scrounge up in happy hour food).
- A few years ago, I lost 20 lbs on the South Beach Diet.
My latest success is the iPhone diet...Elsie's lost about 30 lbs this winter.
What's the iPhone diet? I've been keeping track what I eat and burn using LoseIt, an iPhone Ap, which is really just a food diary. It's a good thing for me to obsess about. Here's the current result...
Since I look at my phone, oh about 100 times a day, it's easy for me to not forget to log what I've eaten...AND since I've started, I'm much more careful about what I eat...and how much. Mostly, it's caused me to cut back on unnecessary snacking. (I'm one of those who'll come home from work and ingest about 1000 mindless calories of whatever's lying around).
Friday - Run
For those of you who are new here...this is the path that we run at Lake Murray...one of the herd noted about a year ago that it looks like a "boy part." Thus is is now referred to as Lake Boy Part, or Lake BP...I love when Lisa or Irene refer to it that way in their blogs...hahahahah...what an impact the Hefferblog is having on the local running scene...
Ran this morning with Betty at Lake BP. Not too much to report. It's getting HOT. We didn't run until 9am, which was probably an hour too late. We ran 5.6 miles. about an 11:00 pace...
Did I mention that it got HOT?
I've registered for the IronGirl 10K in Del Mar on June 8 (another effort at running on the poly-crap) and the America's Finest City 1/2 Marathon in August...the last leg of the triple crown...
Got a 20 mile bike ride for tomorrow...
* one other comment...WTF is up with my right foot...it looks like I'm about to land completely on the inside of it. Do you think this is why I have such issues with PF, and my achilles? GAH! I've gotta work on that!
