Thanks for all your support yesterday. I’m feeling a bit better. Or maybe it’s just resignation. In any case, it felt good to sort of scream out loud and that’s one of the things I love about blogging.
Still no vehicle for Mr. Helen. Yesterday the dealer called to tell us they had searched all of New England and New York and New Jersey (which is as far as they can go) – that’s 8 states people - and found 4 trucks. 3 of them were sold already and they were trying to get the 4th one but weren't hopeful. So, these types of pickups sell like hotcakes but they don't make enough of them.
The news this morning announced that the state I live in has the highest pollen counts in the entire country. Yay?
In her race recap report, Shelley talked about how she hated the first mile of her race and how the left (negative) side of her brain tried to talk her out of continuing. This issue is the exact reason I prefer distance over 5Ks. When you run a 5K you really need to go all out from the get go. Run as fast as you can. For 3.1 miles. When you run longer races, you can use the first mile or even two to settle into your pace and then run for your life. I always say I run like a crockpot. The longer I go, the hotter and faster I get.
I have been trying Twitter. I’m really not good at it so we’ll see how long it lasts. I like reading better than tweeting. MizFit twits all the time!! More than anybody else I follow!! Then I see her comments all over the blogs! How on earth does she find the time?
This post sparked a whole bunch of thoughtful comments. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them but was particularly struck by Journey Beyond Survival’s comment “Hubbend is mum on the way up and a cheerleader on the way down.” Because that sort of describes how it is with me and the Mr. since my thyroid diagnosis. I was also intrigued and forced to think by Paul’s comment. Maybe the Mr. thinks he is supporting me? Hmmmmm….. It was so interesting to read a man’s point of view. If you haven’t seen his comment please do go back and read it.
I looked at the calendar yesterday and realized we have some sort of eating event every weekend for the next 4 weekends straight. It seems like we’re moving into the summer party season earlier than usual this year. I need to strategize for all this. Tel me what you do.
I’m thinking about going back to a paper food journal. Just writing down what I’m eating and not thinking about calories, fat, carbs, etc. Just for a change. I think my brain needs a break from so much information regarding my food. Funny that’s a scary thought to me. I’m afraid of losing control. Eating too much.
Is intuitive eating something that can be done WHILE trying to lose weight? I see lots of maintenance people switch to that. It just seems to me that if you are overweight, “intuitively” your body would want to stay at that weight therefore you would eat accordingly. Anyone out there eating intuitively and losing?
