Is it Monday already?!?

Happy Monday people!

I had a great weekend! Got my first 5k of the year under my belt. Official time was 49:02, better than last year's 50:00 time, and I am definitely going to to do better next time. There were a group of us who did it around 8 of us and I think the fastest of us was a 34:40 (my friend in the pic, Amani). It was Amani's first 5k and she is now addicted. We are signing up for the sprint4cancer 5k on April 21 and then we have the 10k May 5th. I personally haven't gotten that runners high yet (maybe b/c I'm not really running), but I hope to get it soon.  



So for people who do not believe that menstrual bloating ain't real let me tell you about my weigh in. So I am a reforming scale junkie. When I am doing right with my eating, I feel the need to weigh in everyday. I guess I want that number to tell me "Yes you only ate 1200 calories yesterday and I am going to reward you with a 2 lb loss." But usually it says, "Bitch you just started eating right, I don't know if you're going to stick with it, you weigh the same as yesterday dumbass." Anywho so I get on the scale on Friday 299.6. I have a small happy dance and then I go on with my day. Keep in mind I'm not on period but I knew the crimson tide was coming soon. So for some reason Saturday morning when I got up, I get on the scale...307. Get the f*** out of here! I have a mild freak out, go over what I had to eat on Friday and check to see if the tide has rolled in. Nope not here yet. I start getting ready for the race and then right before I walk out of the house, I decide to go to the bathroom one more time. Roll tide roll...my period is here. Thank heavens I went to the bathroom before I left my house or this post would have been titled the '5k Disaster.' Fortunately the scale went down the next day, but still not to 299.6, but 301.4. Goal is to be under 300 next weigh in.

After the 5k went to brunch had a crab benedict I think and went home, nursed my cramps and passed out. Went to a birthday dinner where I wore a dress that I bought in January and I must say I looked different wearing it this time around. Sunday started off lazy and then I made it to the gym for cardio and core work, then a little light shopping. Watched a martial arts movie with a friend and it was a wrap. Overall a good weekend. How was yours???

  2. Lol, I force myself not to weigh when I'm bloated! That's so funny!

    And huge congrats on the 5k! That's amazing! Roll on the 10k in May. I wish there were more around here, but I saw an advert for a half marathon in September and I don't know if I should sign up!

  4. Yay for the 5K! Yep, I bloat up like that too during the moon flow (now doesn't that sound poetic for such an awful thing?!). I've had that very same scale thing happen, but it does go down again. Have faith in good eating habits.

  5. WAY TO GO with your 5K!!!! *body rolls*
    once you get started there is no stopping..you can get there by power walking the next one and then walking/jogging the next one. Before you know it.. GUHHHRRRLLL you'll be running a 5K! Good luck!
