156.4 - Case of the Mondays

So Saturday I got in my 9 mile run, my last long run before The Half on May 3rd. My time wasn't great, it was on the treadmill and I wasn't feeling super inspired--avg. pace was 11:46. Then I pretty much proceeded to eat like I was on vacation all weekend, hence the lovely uptick in my weight today.

Saturday I had gotten down to 154.8, which shows I still can move that scale down if I just pay attention to what I'm eating and eat proteins and veggies instead of just carbs and fats.

And today I've got a major case of the blahs. Couldn't get up this morning and don't want to be at work. I'd rather be in bed watching season 1 of The Wire on DVD or reading a book.

A light at the end of the tunnel--Pasta Queen's book arrives today from Amazon. I can't wait to read it and find some much needed inspiration.

My miles for April are already over 50, which is a first for me. I worked out 4 times last week for a total of 4 hours, which is a good week.

I've packed my lunch and am tracking food again. I'll run at least 2 while Sophie's at swim class tonight. And I'll do my best to stay on plan so I can get this 4-5 pounds off before the summer starts. I'd love to have it gone by The Half, but realistically I don't see that happening.

You know I'm in the same place, are we going to get ourselves out of this funk?

Can I tell you how much I LOVE the photo with this?

I hope the day turns out for you but honestly, you're doing great. No one is ever going to be perfect, 100% of the time, 24/7. We are going to slip and slide but the strength to get back up is what counts.

You are awesome!
