Return and Refocus

Yeah, so hi. It's been a while. I know. I didn't mean to disappear for 4 months but stuff happened: weddings (not mine), warm weather, hot weather, "heat domes", debt ceilings, work going crazy, special someones to hang out with, allergies, vacation and a whole tapeworm incident (again, not mine) that is best never spoken of again.

Here is what didn't happen: running, training, eating healthy, sleeping much, losing weight.

But it's okay. It's been a great summer so far. Fun. Exciting. Lots of laughter and ice cream and time spent with friends.

Then I realized that I signed up for a 10K in October and I could probably count the number of times I've run since my 5K on one hand. My 5K in March which is also the last post I wrote. Oops.

So, I'm out of race shape and the scale hasn't budged and I should probably do something about that pretty soon.

So, here are some new things that happened: I bought new running shoes. I sold the car. I bought a new vegetarian cookbook. I returned to Weight Watchers. I went on three treadmill runs (slow, hot, painful).

And finally, I signed up for this. Lord help me.
