Sprink Break!

I can't believe that it has been almost a whole week without a blog post. Truthfully, there really hasn't been anything blog worthy to post. Everyone in my house has had some medical drama this past week. Diva has an ear infection. The boys have bad colds which causes my oldest to be hooked up to a nebulizer. Chubby Hubby pulled a muscle by his ribs and my cold turned into a sinus infection. We have been a really fun group to be around. Thankfully everyone is starting to turn the corner and we are all starting to feel better. *knocking on wood*

Weight Watchers this week showed another gain because I have been eating crappy. Others in my meeting have also fallen off the wagon and are struggling with their weight loss efforts. As a group we decided that we needed another level of accountability to at least get the ball rolling again. We decided that we are going turn in our food journals at our next meeting for review. This is forcing me to journal but it is amazing what I don't eat when I am faced with a little public humiliation. I am looking forward to a loss this week.

Thank you to everyone who gave there opinion about buying/selling race bibs and bandit race running. I truly was curious about everyone's view on this subject. I know from reading some posts on Runner's World, that this is a hot topic for debate. The poll results were about 50/50 as whether or not people would partake in bib swapping or bandit running.
I have been on both sides of this issue. I have lost money due to an injury keeping me from an event and I have been frustrated by not getting into several races due to lottery selection.
I have purchased a bib from a friend in the past to get into a popular mid-distance, lottery selection race. I wanted to run with my girlfriend just for fun, not for a PR or to get my name in the paper. I don't know that I could do it for a full marathon only because I would want the full bragging rights. As a back of the pack runner, I don't see the harm in swapping out a bib as I am just another one in the crowd.

It is Spring break week here in our house. No trips this year and I am happy that we are staying put. It is time to spring clean this house and I am going to put little hands to work. I am thinking of ways to bribe them to get rid of stuff. I also will be catching up with all of Blogland this week as well as getting back to my little running routine.
