I will return to Weight Watchers someday.....

The struggles continue. I know, I know, I know I need to buckle down and get back under 190. This past weekend I was 192.8 but went out to dinner both Saturday and Sunday and feeling huge right now.

Weekend runs haven't happened 2 weekends in a row. A week ago was my son's birthday and the weather wasn't great and I wanted to just sleep in....so I did.

I did get out for 4 miles last Tuesday.

This past weekend I planned on 7 miles but wasn't in a rush because we didn't have plans until 2:30, so I didn't hit the road until 9:30. It was freezing and very windy and I really, really didn't want to be out there. I had eaten poorly the night before and that is never a good recipe for a good long run. Literally 2 minutes into my run, during which I considered quitting the 1/2 and wondering if I should just quit running, my mom called with potentially bad news about my dad. I quit my run right then and there. Thankfully it was a false alarm and I could have gone back out and completed (well, started again) my run, but mentally I was done.

But I did get in another 4 miles this morning. 5 am. 13 degrees, wind chill of 6. Hello Spring....

Friday the 13th.....

I am just counting down the minutes until I can get out of here and another busy weekend begins.

2+ weeks of not posting is never a good thing. Not at all.

I skipped WW last Saturday and skipping again tomorrow as well. There are days when I feel like throwing in the towel - not quitting the journey, but quitting WW. I am hoping when/if my company renews their contract with WW in April that we will be able to do the Personal Coaching. I think that would really help.

The motivation of eating healthy just hasn't been there and that is reflected on the scale and how I feel. TOM is coming soon and I hope to rebound after that.

Right now i am stressed about my son's birthday (I loathe having birthday parties), my dad's illness, work, and the still lingering depression of this awful winter.

But in good news....

--Spring will officially be here next week! Wednesday it was almost 60! Granted it is going to pour tomorrow and snow on Sunday and be in the 30s next week......

--I've been running outside! March 1st I ran 4 miles, including hills, with the running group. 2 days later I got up at 4:30 am to run more hills. Last Sunday I found out they had been plowing a bike trail (not the normal one I run on) so I did 7 miles and this week I got up at 4:30 to run 3.5 miles with the group.

Tomorrow I am pulling out my spring clothes - I am pretty sure I didn't get rid of a lot of the bigger stuff because I know I will need it. But hopefully it will also be the incentive I need to get back into the 14s.
