Calling an end to radio silence

It has been a while...well actually WAY to long since I have posted anything.

I apologize for being so...absent...lately.

So here is a little catch up on what has been going on.

1) Weight Loss- I lost 1.8 pounds over the month of March.  This doesn't bother me at all. I have learned things over the last year and a half that tell me that ANY TIME I increase my exercise (in this case running longer) my body FREAKS and tries to hold on to any and EVERY gram of fat that my body has. It doesn't like it at all! It wants to be fat...which I don't like.

2)Running- It is only logical to move to this topic next. I am in love with this simple activity. I love how it makes my muscle feel even when they are so shaky I think I won't be able to take another step. I love how it makes me feel ABOUT myself. I totally have one of these moments every time...

The greatest thing you ask? I don't give a damn. I am a 268 pound women who runs 4 miles 3-4 days a week. I am kicking ass!

3) Slimming and Goo!- I don't know about the rest of you...but my band is being a little pissy lately. I CONSTANTLY have to keep my little red friend near by when I eat or drink.

It is an almost daily thing that has gotten worse over the last few days. I mean...I went from maybe once a day but more like three days a week having to deal with the slime/goo. Now it is almost EVERY TIME I eat. I have no idea what to do. It has been almost 6 months since my last fill. I have a hard time believing that this is because of my fill level. This next part has been written since I wrote the above part I have found a theory I am going to test. My restriction has gotten worse since I increased my cheese intake. I am going to leave it out of my diet for a week and see if there is any change.

4)Employment- As I am sure some of you know I have been working at an internship for the last five months. As of Wednesday, it be came a permanent position. They are keeping me on a part time accountant. I will work when they need me and not work when they don't need me. This is the best of both worlds. I get to further my career while still getting to spend time with my babies.

5) Graduation - FIVE MORE WEEKS!!!

1 Week and counting....

My first 5K is coming up in 8 days....I am SUPER excited!

I have gotten to where I can run (and prefer to run) 4 miles at a time...

On that note...I have signed up for another 5K.

The Saint Louis Zoo has something they call Make Tracks for the Zoo. It is a family event. My daughter (7) gets run in a 1/2 mile race and my son (3) gets to participate in a 1/4 miles run.

We all get T-shirts and the money is for a good cause...
