Last night I had a bizarre dream. I dreamt that I got lost during a clinic run and ended up running for hours alone. When My clinic instructor Carol found me, she told me that I ran the equivalent of a full marathon and perhaps the 1/2 marathon clinic wasn't the right fit for me. As if! I can't keep up with the serious runners in my clinic, so I know that I am right where I'm supposed to be!
I don't know if I said this during my last couple of posts or not...I love running! Running has changed my body, allowed me to eat more than most people and been the best therapy I could invest in. Check out these pictures. There is a 14 pound difference and at first I didn't think it was very noticeable, but I can definitely see it in my arms, boobs, hips and abdomen. Not so much in my legs. And although I still follow mostly Phase 2 of Dr. Poon's Diet, I will admit that I have never measured the measurable veggies. I have always eaten as much as I want because running takes care of any additional calories for me. I have also been following some of maintenance this month, mostly on long run days because I burn 1000+ calories during those runs. We'll see how or if that affects the scale next month.
I bought a pair of size 10 (very) skinny jeans a few weeks ago that I couldn't do up. I tried them on last night...and they fit! Picture to come soon. I'm going out with my BFF Nokomis tomorrow night. Perhaps I will wear those skinny jeans and get her to snap me. She a professional photographer and I'm sure she'll take a much better picture than my regular photog (my 5 year old son). Good night beautiful people, and I hope all of my American friends had a very Happy Thanksgiving that does not find them regretting anything in the morning:)
