i think it's amazing how facebook can be so time consuming. i sat down to write a blog post like 15 minutes ago... but instead i've been surfing through old pictures of myself. i kept thinking "wow, if only i had known how skinny i was instead of being obsessed with getting smaller." don't you think it's interesting that i've been obsessed with getting smaller for going on a decade and yet... i've only gotten bigger!
i think what i need to do is start counting calories again. i dont exactly know why i stopped. its a hassle i guess.. it takes a while to do and you either have to do it throughout the day, or you have to try and remember every morsel you put into your mouth that day. i guess ideally you really wouldnt be putting morsels of anything in your mouth right?? giving up alcohol for lent hasn't been the struggle i thought it would be... probably because i am replacing my cravings with hot chocolate. i have found that the coffee machine at the client i'm currently working on has this crazy 'chocochino' setting... which is basically milk and hot chocolate and goodness all wrapped in one. i'm probably having 3 a day. 300 calories... in hot chocolate. what an idiot. i vow not to have any today.
in other news, i signed up to run a 10k on July 4th. soooo i'm doing that couch to 5k program... and this time i don't plan on quitting! 2 sessions down... who knew i'm so out of shape?? i know i say this every time... how can i do a 60 minute spin class but not be able to run for 1 minute and walk for 90 seconds 8 times in a row? i am running 10 minute mile pace... is that slow? average? i know its not fast... i just want to know if maybe i should try to speed it up or slow it down for this type of training.
i have other court related drama... but i'll save that for another time.
