The {weight} saga 2014 – Jan

Jan Recap:
Miles ran: 46.74 mi
Weight lost: 0 (UGH!)

I found out I had pneumonia in the first week of January and that took me out of the running scene. I knew I wanted to start training for the Half Marathon and needed to do it soon but the doc said “No. Absolutely no running”. After a week on prednisone, he gave me the go ahead to run but I had to keep my heart rate under 150. Have you ever had to pay that much attention to your HRM while running?

It’s pretty freakin hard. (that’s what she said). But surprisingly, some of my best runs, calorie burning wise, was during those runs.  I’ve since been cleared, after two doses of prednisone. The Black Lung is gone, thank goodness. The shoulder pain remains but I’m trying to take it easy.

I’ve decided Feb is going to be a “No Eating Out” Challenge month for the Coastie house. I want to challenge myself to make 28 different dinners. Sort of a “Julie & Julia” thing except not as in depth.

Weigh ins, for work, are coming up quickly. I’m determined to make weight via the scale. I only have 6 lbs to go but these 6 lbs are kicking my ass. It doesn’t help that I’ve been in true fat girl mode recently and have been needing to eat all of the food. I need to kick this habit, ASAP.

I ran my 6m long run today and shocked myself to PR my 10K time! I was pretty stoked. I’m hoping to be able to shave a few solid minutes off my Lobster Fest time. Fortunately I have until Aug  to work on that 😉
