Today is Monday – and that means one thing for me: the start of a new Weight Watchers journal.
I am not exactly religious about logging my points, but every Monday I go at it with new resolve – like this will be the week! I actually didn’t weigh in last week, so I darn well better have a significant loss the next time I step on the scale. Last week – after running 19.75 miles – I scurried over to make weigh in. I gained nearly TWO pounds!!! And this seems to be the story of my life.
I just read in Runners World Magazine that I could shave off two minutes of my marathon time if I lost five pounds. I could probably shave 30 minutes off if I just ran faster. But neither one seems to be happening right now. I just love food too much. And cake.
Speaking of cake – we celebrated our running coach’s birthday this weekend. I love to bake and decorate cakes almost as much as I love to eat them. So I made this triathlon cake - realizing half way through the process, that people who are really dedicated triathletes don’t eat cake! Oh well, more for me to enjoy… now on to that Weight Watcher’s journal….
