Well the time is surely ticking by quickly isn’t it. We keep getting closer and closer to race day which is exciting and scary at the same time.

First, the good. I have been able to stick with the training plan and gotten in some additional core/strength work too. That’s all very good. Add in extra work in the yard and I’m burning close to 350-500 calories a day.

Now the not as good. My knees feel terrible today. Step OW, step OW. This is probably just my body getting used to the running again. Advil and ice have been helpful.

I’m really trying to maintain a positive outlook and being realistic about my goals, but I’ve got to vent a little here. I am now up nearly 7-8 lbs in the last 2.5 weeks despite adhering to the training and maintaining good nutrition. WTF!?!?!

The only thing that is different is a return to “the pill”. A few people have mentioned the possibility of replacing fat with muscle. Bottom line – I DONT CARE! I am so sick of excuses, I just want to lose weight, tone up and run this race. Grrrrrrrrrr. Frustration is dominating the scene. I need to see a sign that I’m making progress. Also making a call to the OB about these damn pills. Grrrrrrrrrr.
