I would like to thank everyone for all the kind words and encouragement. It really helped me get through the marathon. It might be sad, but sometimes my only motivation to do something is to have something to blog about. Throughout the race, I kept thinking how I wanted my race recap to read.
It is hard to believe that the race was a week ago. My week of being a sloth came to an end today. The thought of working out, even lightly, did not even cross my mind. In fact, I am still a bit sore from the race. I am going to ease back into a routine. But first, I am going to halt the eating like the world is ending. I have had some of the best meals this week but I am pretty sure my arteries are paying the price. Let the detox begin!
Now that the race is done, I decided it was time to pull out the scale to see where I am. I hid the scale during training because I was getting frustrated with the numbers. I was kind of excited to pull this thing out because several people have commented that I look like I have lost a lot of weight. I jumped on and discovered that I haven't lost a pound (and perhaps gained a few). Ugh....what a buzz kill. Back to meal planning, tracking in the journal, and counting.
For a week of nothing, it was pretty busy. I spent a lot of time with the kids and shuffling them to their activities. We had an out of town wedding on Saturday. Sunday I dusted off my camera and snapped a few photos of Diva. I am a little late on her three year photos, this is the first chance I have had to get her in front of the camera.
