Weigh-In-Wednesday Of Awesome? NO
However I did maintain my weight!! (and that deserves a little victory dance, right?!? RIGHT?) I also saw, with my very own eyes, the scale flick to 154!! but then sadly it settled on 156… Stupid scale gods taunting me… I suppose it could it be the 4 pints of beer from Monday night? Or it could be the fuzzy peaches consumed for lunch yesterday? Or perhaps it was the cotton candy I...
Your sweater makes you look so skinny– ~ Office Admin lady. I like to think it’s not my sweater, but me.
In Other Very Unrelated Random News...
Tonight? Drinks at Ki to welcome the new people to the office. I legitimately am not feeling that well so I think I’ll stick to my diet coke, however I may get a martini or two to celebrate yesterday’s run. Why? Because that’s just how I roll… Boy from Date Night asked me out again. Officially. Dinner this week. I said yes. Simply put? I wasn’t sure how to say no....
One-Twenty-Five ran her 21k half-marathon today!! ...
okwhatnow: Glitter Graphics Thank you!! Thank you sooooooo much! I may or may not have just showed this to all my friends. I’m sooo bling bling. True Dat.
I went and ran me my first 1/2 Marathon.
2 Hours, 24 minutes and 24 seconds.
Huh... 12 hours.
So I’ve been putzing around all day, enjoying life, dogs, horses, food, and my new book in preparation for tomorrow morning. My outfit is laid out, my bib is pinned on, my ‘to-do list slash don’t-be-an-idiot-and-forget list’ is on the fridge, my nails are painted bright pink (i’m not superstitious, but I swear the pink will bring me luck), the body glide is counting...
I just got me a twitter account.
Username: OneTwentyFiveE Whoa. You know it’s a slow Friday when…
I’m still sitting here. It’s been over 40minutes, yet I continue to sit. I need to run, but simply put? I just don’t want to. I’m feeling so lazy and suddenly very self conscious the world will see me and my fat jiggle down the street. You know, I wasn’t feeling that well this morning… Don’t want to over do my running… Perhaps I could run...
100 Days Until 2010
A lot can happen in 100 days. I’m hoping to… be in or near the 130s, have completed the finance course I’m working on, own a sexy-as-hell pair of knee high boots, run a 1/2 marathon, own a red jacket, paid off my debt, be more confident, have a trip booked to Miami for the spring… What do you hope to have done?
I wonder how different my life would have been had I never been fat… I often wonder that.
10k of Awesome Complete.
Now? The.Biggest.Loser. Duh. Ps By ‘awesome’ run I mean 1h 11min 13sec.
haygirlhay: deghanmay: bendoeslife: awkwardlyawesome: okwhatnow: I want to try running outside today, as opposed to on the treadmill, but I’m afraid I’ll look like an ass… Everyone looks like an ass running. Go for it! When was the last time you were driving around and made fun of someone for running? It doesn’t happen. Trust me; I’ve now been running on the streets of NYC for about...
In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of...– ~Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon co-founder. I really like this quote. Like, a lot. I feel I’m going to come in last this Sunday, so I keep having to remind myself just the simple act of finishing the 21 kilometers will be a huge accomplishment for me. Ps I am soo, sooo, sooo very nervous
And so I Laughed... No, really... I did.
So… umm yea… my boss just emailed me the below. It’s a short bio about me for some presentation I’m doing later this month. OMIGOD you guys!! he included ‘running’ as a regular activity of mine! I NEVER thought I’d see the day… ps he really should have included, “E enjoys food, blogging, high heels, cupcakes and sleeping” in there...
In other news, remember this debacle? Well, he txted me last night y’all. And (excuse me while I pat myself on my back) I turned him down - in a very nice way of course. Why would I turn down a gorgeous man who you can actually google and see model photos of (ohemgee I know!)? … perhaps because of a little thing called ‘he has a girlfriend.’ Exactly. E: 1 Men: 0
Somtimes doing the right thing is really f*cking hard.
Guess Who Just Ran 20km?
It was actually a terrible run (I blame the Jillian Michael’s DVD for this - my calves were in so much pain), but nonetheless I did the entire thing. My iPod died on me half way, so Im not sure my exact time, but I think it was over 2h 20. Also, HUGE shout out to Ben (of BenDoesLife fame) for doing 20k this morning in 1h 49!!! Incredible. Now? Shower, food, laundry, dinner and...
