Still Strong- Day2

Day 2 -no wine. Going strong...

I stopped by the Captains, had a chat. Went home, made an awesome little whole wheat pita pizza thing (God, I can't get enough of those babies). Watched the Simpsons. Read my book. It's light-hearted. I was in bed nice and early.






Woke up for my run this morning with no issues (It's much easier to get up when I didn't drink the night before). Nothing too exciting to report, except that I really love where I live and I don't ever want to move. Especially this time of year (no tourists!)

(This is part of my path - mile 1)


4 miles = 39:43

I did make a little mistake and stepped on the scale this morning. This is against my rules, as I can easily turn into a psycho-obsessive-compulsive-scale freak. The number was NOT where I wanted it to be. But this will only me make stronger today. I just threw away two bowls of candy that were near my desk. They weren't even mine - but I don't want that shit around to temp me with with sweet sugary ugliness.


Very excited for Bikram tonight. I will have the POM Institute issue a full report tomorrow!

"It's much easier to get up when I didn't drink the night before" -- I need to remember this.

Jess said...

Nice job on the run!!!

Ali said...

I want to run there ... can I come live with you?

jen said...

Ooooh pretty!

Great run and great job on being wine-free. I'm avoiding alcohol myself for the next three weeks as much as possible since I have a race coming up.. I always feel fresher and lighter I think. Anyway, way to go. :)

And don't worry a bit about the scale. I know my weight jumps around a lot so just stick to your scheduled time.

I so need to take a picture of where my run will be (when the snow melts) you will laugh your ass off ... palm trees??!

chia said...

I thought I was the only rude a**hole in the office that disposed of ill-placed crap :-). There is a girl just down the cube farm that is trying to lose weight and seriously she puts all the candy and crap on my desk.

Ugh.

Have fun tonight!

You should celebrate throwing away the candy by having a glass of wine.

Lucas said...

Oh that sun and sand look so freakin' awesome! I'm with Sarah, you'd laugh if you saw my path. Enjoy your gorgeous view and fresh ocean breezes!

Carly said...

Nice Job! I am totally jealous of where you live. We are still getting SNOW!

J~Mom said...

Nice run!! My path is dirt and brown with some more dirt.

RunnerGirl said...

wow, the running path is amazing!

Tammy said...

I'm so jealous now! It's dreary and cloudy here...

Marcy said...

Oooohhhh yeah . . . way to bring a girl down. Here I'm thinking I'm living in the sun and then BAM you post that pic up :P ;-)

teacherwoman said...

Nice work with out the wine the night before a run! Stay off that dirty scale for a while! You'll thank yourself!

Viv said...

I want to go to so cal...

Good luck with Bikram, no puking allright :-)

Yea on day 2 of the wine ban. I am on day 2 of eating healthy. We can do this right.

Southern Fried Girl said...

Fab job and please remember that it ain't all about the scale, girl.

I stumbled upon your blog about a month ago and really enjoy it! If you haven't already, you should listen to Ingrim Hill's song, Captain.

Go POM! Go POM!

My weight loss has FINALLY kicked in again thanks to cutting back on alcohol (I'm under 160 baby!) And while we might not have palm trees in Seattle, we did have blue skies (that is, until they turned dark, grey and cloudy again)

katieo said...

You run in that? Every day? Are you kidding?

lucky duck. I run in the Yukon (well, it LOOKS like the Yukon).

Non-Runner Nancy said...

I hope you play innocent when everyone starts looking for the candy.

Good luck with the heat torture, I mean Bikram class tonight.

Brianna said...

What a great way to start the day. I'm sure flinging the candy felt good, too . . . very liberating!

Mendy said...

Wow... what a gorgeous pic. Why would you want to move? Nice!!!

"I just threw away two bowls of candy that were near my desk. They weren't even mine - but I don't want that shit around to temp me with with sweet sugary ugliness.".

LOL!!! Not even your candy but you trashed it. Too freakin funny!
