I have not ran in 3 days. I had to take sometime off from running due to a Peroneal Tendinitis. It's feeling better, but I haven't really tried running on it yet. I'm hoping I'll be able to get out in the next couple of days for a couple of runs before my race. The weather has been so gloomy. I've been having a hard time getting motivated to workout. I'm such a routine girl. If I don't workout for a couple of days, that literally can throw me into a not working out at all phase. I hate to admit this but these last few days I have been sleeping in and am loving it. I am very thankful that I can workout, but at times I wish I didn't have to work at it so hard. As I get older it is getting hard to keep the weight off.
I literally have lost and gained the same 10 to 20 lbs for the last 10 years. Every time I've lost those pounds I think to myself, I got it figured out this time on how not to gain it back. Low and Be hold, if I don't gain back those same pounds "I must be kidding myself to think that I can handle keeping weight off". I get so tired of working at it and just want to call it quits and give into the food. I really just want to be able to eat normal and not think about food 24/7.
My race is in 5 days I'm really feeling like I'm going to suck this year. When the weather is gloomy I real have a hard time staying motivated to run.
Anybody watch the Biggest Loser on TV? I loved the finale. Olivia and Hannah looked awesome. I know that for me when you have something like a finale to motivate you into losing the weight it seems to be a little easier. I feel that their biggest challenge will be when the show is done and they are on their own each and everyday. Because everyday their will not be a challenge or a finale to motivate them.. As I'm watching the finale I often wonder will they be able to keep it off. I know for me the easy part is losing the weight and the hard part is keeping it off. That has always been my down fall for most of my life.
Ok, Enough feeling sorry for myself. Moving on to a positive thing.
