03/07/2016 Shock & Awe

This morning, at 7:30am, I experienced massive shock and awe.  Heading into the bathroom, I knew it wasn't going to be good.  I resigned myself to the fact that I was a bit indulgent over the last few months, and I now had to pay for it.  I thought it wouldn't be good, but couldn't be THAT bad.....

Shock and Awe

I stepped on the scale and WTF, it said 165.4.  I wasn't ready for that.  I quickly realized the following as I was standing there:

  1. I already peed so I couldn't blame it on that.
  2. I took off my clothes so I couldn't blame it on that.
  3. That .4, probably all the Oreos the night before.
I then quickly waddled off the scale, got into my bedroom and found some elastic sweatpants to wear and a nice baggy shirt.  I then lumbered downstairs to finish the morning routine and slugged my way to school.

I am calling it winter weight.  I need to shed my winter weight now so that I am not a blubbering seal on the race course.  Of course, today's run went well!  Any other day, I would have felt great today considering the relatively warm weather and the sun being out.  However, with the scale on my mind, it felt like forever out there.  When I finished my 5 miles, it was a decent 8:15/mile pace on hills.  It's all in how you feel though, and I felt like shit from the first step to the last.

Tonight's menu!?  Grilled chicken over salad of course with some water as dressing, maybe a little pepper.  If you will excuse me, I am going to go have an air sandwich for my lunch.
