IT'S FINALLY SHAMROCK WEEK!!!!!!!
If you can't tell, I am SO excited that Shamrock Marathon Weekend is just four days away! Look for more posts this week detailing all the fun stuff this weekend will hopefully bring.
As you know, the last two weeks have been a bit of a struggle- some of my food issues resurfaced; specifically bored/lonely eating. But I'm proud that I was able to recognize what was going on and stop it before it got too out of hand. Two or three years ago, I don't know if I would have made the same decision. Progress!
Monday- Short core workout
Tuesday- Walk Away the Pounds, 3 mile walk
Wednesday- Rest day
Thursday- Rest day. Toe flared up around 10:30 pm and was painful through the night until 11:30 pm Friday night. Ugh.
Friday- Rest day
Saturday- Rest day
Sunday- Shamrock 5k in Baltimore, 37:36, 11:48 pace. Toe felt great!
|I wish my feet felt this great every day!|
So, this freaking toe. On Thursday night, as I was laying in bed, it flared up. Swollen, painful, wouldn't move- I could barely walk on Friday. After work on Friday, I put on my boot (the one from the stress fracture) and could get around much better. Then as randomly as it started, it stopped hurting and being "frozen" around 11:30 Friday night- about 25 hours of pain. I have no idea what the heck is going on with it except that the flare-ups are lasting longer and longer each time. I have an appointment with a sports medicine podiatrist this morning so maybe I'll get some answers. All I know is that I am hoping and praying that I don't have any more flare-ups; especially this weekend. I just wish I knew how to prevent these painful flare-ups.
Not much to say here- I didn't try anything new or noteworthy. But, I did a much better job of staying within my daily PPV range this week. And I did a lot of cuddling with Koda- that counts for something, right? :-)

141.2 pounds as of 3/11/15 weigh in
-1.8 from last week
-49.2 since January 2013
-60.8 since HW
After a two pound gain last week, I was happy to see the majority of that gone this week. I am still struggling to get past the 141 mark. I've set my goal weight at 135 but if the scale won't budge anymore, I may have to readjust that goal. For now, I am hoping to be at goal by the time we go on our second Disney cruise in May- less than two months from now. We'll just have to see what happens.
Are you running any St. Patrick's Day themed races this week?
