Week 8 Recap Here

Out of every week since this game started, I paid the LEAST attention this week to what I was stuffing in my mouth. For the first time in a month, I had not one, but two cupcakes. In the same day. I had a sufficient amount of beer again, and didn't really watch my portion sizes. We went to a pizza buffet and I had a JILLION pieces

Tuesday - Barre in the morning, 2 mile (slow) time trial and 2 mile bike ride with A.
Wednesday - Super duper hot run club - only about 2.5 miles.
Thursday - Barre
Friday - Nothing
Saturday - Castle Rock half marathon
Sunday - 6.7 miles of trails with Hope
Monday - Tank top arms & abs/obliques, Chaos, 1.5 mile run

I squeezed in a lot more cross/strength training this week. My biggest success this week is that I don't seem to be hating running as much as I have been over the last month or so. It still feels unnecessarily difficult and a bit painful, but I am not "dreading" running. So there's that.

Weekly Loss - 0.6 pounds
Loss Since April 30 - 11.6 pounds

I am honestly SHOCKED that I still had a loss this week. Moving a bit more must have helped.
  • Running was SO much better this week. I didn't have that terrible of a race and I had a great time finally getting out and running some trails this weekend - truly my favorite type of run!
  • I am still not as hungry as I used to be. I would like to think that this is because I have been watching my portion sizes and not eating as much.
  • We were informed at class last night that next week is the last Chaos class. I am seriously contemplating quitting the gym. I have been going to one for YEARS (Seriously, over 9 years I have been religiously going to one). With my treadmill hate, I haven't been running on one there and they have eliminated all the classes I really feel give me a good workout. A enjoys the daycare there, but at $50ish a month, it seems I could spend the money better elsewhere.
  • Related: These damn Fitness Blender videos are KICKING MY ASS. If I can continue to do these at home, I sure don't need to waste my time at the gym. I did the barre workout again this morning and am having a hard time even typing right now.
Non Related Thoughts:
  • Going to a meetup tonight for the first time. Hope I don't get stabbed. It involves my favorite thing... beer! So if nothing else, maybe I can try a new porter?
  • Related: sad and lonely now that J has moved out.
  • Related: even more sad and lonely with A gone in Texas.
  • Related: my house is the cleanest it has been since the last time A was gone.
  • Related: I have done a TON of clean sweeping and have gotten rid of a TON of stuff. I need to quit buying things!!!


  1. Awesome job with the weight loss! Even if this past week wasn't a great week, you still lost and that's what counts in the long run!

  2. i've been thinking about you based on your tweets and hoping you are okay. it gets better, i promise. but i get the lonely part. glad you are getting out and doing stuff and at least you have running groups to head to as well! and nice on the weight loss!!


I adore comments and I read every single one. Thanks for reading :)
