So where have I been?

Honestly, I don't know.  I have been running and taking my class at the gym.  Bouncing between liquid fasting and just eating too much.  Feeling uninspired to write a long entry here.  Busy with work and searching for a new job.

My weight this morning, post work-out, 134.8.  What am I doing???  I should be 124.8 by now for goodness sake.

Anyway, this morning I did 2.25 miles on the treadmill and one class.  It was too humid and sticky to survive another, but I burned 650ish calories in the process.  I came home and made an awesome smoothie (banana, strawberry, soy milk, almond butter, flax, kale, super-green food powder, and sf chocolate syrup) - I am not sure of the calorie content, but I know it will keep me full for most of the day (eliminating the need for a real lunch).  I'll snack on rice cakes and Crystal Light later and stick to tea and a salad for dinner.

All in all, I really need to up my game.  I need to eat less and train harder or I am never going to be comfortably under 120, which is my ultimate goal.  I want to wear light, pretty clothes this summer and look as good as I can when I go to meet Juan's family next month.  This week I must remain incredibly and intensely focused on keeping my calories lower.  Below 1,000 every day.  I took a rest day Sunday and yesterday (Sunday I was at my kids' race all day walking around and helping with boats and such, but it was a super long day and I was exhausted even on Monday).  I need to run tomorrow and Thursday, as well as take my class at the gym.  On Friday and Saturday I will be in Philadelphia for my kids' last race, the Stotesbury Cup, and I probably won't get much exercise in besides walking.  Therefore, I need to pack fruit, veggies, nuts, and rice cakes to keep me on the healthy track for those two days.  If we go out to eat, salads only.  Hopefully I will be able to update and read Tumblr from my phone and at least keep my focus.  By the way, this is the bathing suit I bought.  I love it, but it looks horrific on me...

I think that swimsuit is pretty and I bet your look great in it! Sometimes I don't understand the weigt thing either- you're doing everything right but you're not loosing...our bodies seem to want to go on strike or something! I hope you start feeling better and can get your inspiration back soon. You'll look great next month when you go to visit Juan's family! ♥

Ok, I'm following your Tumblr now :D

I LOVE that bikini! I wish my boobs were smaller :( They don't stock bikinis for anyone over a B-cup here :'(

OF COURSE you can come hug me! I want a dessie-hug :( We could totally sneak in an assload of exercise under the guise of 'touristing' too. Walking tracks and wildlife watching to your taste, or shall we just hit a couple of spin classes and the coffee shop?
