Two Christmas Lights and a Partridge in a Healthy Pear Tree

FA LALALALA I counted two houses that still had their Christmas lights on just twinkling away in the early morning light.

I biked the two miles over to Katie’s and we went around a few different neighborhoods on our Island for a total of 7 miles. I then peeled off and biked the scenic way home with the sun sneaking up over the marsh. I am sure y’all are getting annoyed with my rubbing it in, but we really live in a dream. Coastal living is where my heart is. No wonder I couldn’t last more than a year in Portland, Oregon. I loved the town, food, beer, and lattes (if you ever visit Gresham, Oregon… you MUST tell me, because I will give you a few must eats!!). Probably how I gained back my college weight back (lost it while living in Key West) through constant lattes to help me feel better about living in a constant gray fog.

I have stayed a pretty consistent weight my whole life. I still have pants from eight years ago that I fit in, so I am pretty happy with that. BUT I am not satisfied. I want to be an athlete. I want to be fit. I want to be someone that when people look at me, they can tell that I am a runner! I did though peak my Soph/Jr year of college. At my heaviest weight, I was so frustrated. Even though I swam for my college, yes we were D-3…  I was still an athlete. I have always battled with this issue. But now I can tackle it, because I have recognized the issue and am owning it. (PS- I am now about 30lbs less than my heaviest weight with a goal to lose 15-20 more).
At my heaviest, 21 years old

With my CREW training and eating right, I will be fit and own my health. I want to one day be the mom with a jogging stroller beating people at the local 5k and 10k. It will happen, because I will make it happen!

I probably won’t talk much about weight issues on here, because this is my running blog and progress towards the marathon. Plus I am not comfortable with putting my body issues out there… but who knows!

So back to my workout! I biked 11 miles this morning and due to storms tonight, my Sunset Bike Club is bringing it inside and just eating. I brought lasagna for the group and bought Amy’s Lean lasagna for myself to eat! Couple that with fresh salad and a glass of wine and should be a solid night looking out on the marsh at our friend, LB’s house! Tomorrow’s workout is speed work…. if its raining, I’m hitting the TM!!

  1. Good luck with your goal. It looks like we have about the same amount to lose before we hit our goal weight. 🙂
