Its confession time over at the Sisterhood!!
And I have quite a bit to get off my chest.
*I had high hopes of winning the globetrotter challenge free and clear. With my half training I was putting in 20+ miles a week running, and was convinced that once the race was over I'd cut back to 3 and 4 mile runs, but 5 times a week. That just hasn't happened.
In fact, the bulk of my mileage has come thanks to Thea's step conversion chart.
*I haven't ran in almost two weeks. Its starting to make me cranky and sad like I use to be, only I'm having trouble motivating myself.
*I'm pigging out whenever I want on whatever I want. Including a steak dinner Friday night and IHOP for breakfast Saturday morning.
*I get freaked out at work thinking about all the things I have to do at home. But by the time I get home I'm too stressed to do anything so I wrap myself in a Boyd's Bear cocoon blanket and watch TV the rest of the night.
*I'm pretending that I'm not moving after the first of the year. Thinking about moving means stressing about packing. And storeage issues (its an old house with small closets).
*My hands are incredibly dry and I'm not lotioning them as I ought. Okay so that's not a big deal, but since I'm laying it all out there.
*I'm proud (you know the sinful kind) of being finished with my Christmas shopping so early in the year.
*I'm hoping to get my Christmas cards out today, and am ashamed that they have taken me so long.
*Thanks to April and Christie O, I've signed myself up for a race in an effort to get myself motivated on the running front. The race is on January 16th, and I'm aiming for a personal best. That gives me right at a month to train for it.
* I took a salad to the Christmas party Saturday night - and it was a big hit! Who knew something beyond iceberg lettuce and ranch dressing would be so popular. I did italian dressing, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, and green peppers. My mom even complimented the presentation!
