Day Seven

New Shoes!

Gummy Life Savers & root beer barrel - For carb boost mid-run.

Crap!  Didn't get in all 13 miles!  Got soaked by mile 1, accidentally set off a business alarm trying to seek shelter, new shoes soaked, headache over left eye and then a bird pooped on me.

Yup, same ol' same ol'!

I love those peach scones.  Hubby makes them and they don't have sugar in them BUT they do have butter.  My "rule" is to only have them on a long run day but I break that rule on a pretty regular basis.  

For your scenic viewing.  Our house is on the right (closest to camera).

The dogs in the flower photo are Reggie & Leroy predecessors to Murphy & Stanley

I hated admitting to this but it was given to me on Friday and kept calling my name.

Taken from our front yard, looking across the street.

I threw the extra photos in to give you a diversion from just seeing photos of food.  I hope it made the post more palatable for you!

    Hahahahahahah - the views kinda sorta worked.... but those peach scones intrigue me! Left over b'day cakes are best 'offed' and then all distraction is solved. It's a theory as good as any... Crikey though - seems we have the same weird weather stuffs; sorry about the new shoes! Eyes-on, YAM xx

  2. Bird poop!!! No!!!!
    What beautiful scenery you do much hill work in your running?

  3. Hi, My first thought upon seeing your new blog was you don't need to lose any weight but congrat's on working towards a goal you feel you need to achieve. Over the holidays, when I was feeling awful, I lost 10 lbs. When I was young, I was always so skinny, way to skinny but couldn't gain any weight. Then over the last twenty years I've battled and although others always say I don't need to lose any lbs either, I know that I feel much better on the leaner side. Right now I fluctuate about 3-4 lbs and once I start riding again, I should be good. Just don't want to get beyond where I am now.
    Loved seeing what you eat. Thanks for sharing and encouraging others.
    Hugs, Noreen

  6. A very interesting blog! I loved the comments from your 9.5 run!! I too have experienced the bird poop. Always at the most inconvenient time too! I started a weight loss plan such as yours. And it did so well that after the first few pounds coming off I actually cut most of my portions in half. And I eliminated chocolate completely from the diet. And combined with strict portion control the weight started coming off at the rate of 2 pounds a week!! And I didn't do much exercising then. 28 pounds have come off and I am working on loosing another 15. I did purchase a pair of Norwegian Walking poles and I know the weight will come off. And the best part is I lost the 28 pounds and for the first time in years I have not gained back any weight! Something new for me and I am very happy about that!! You are following a great plan...I like the idea of photographing everything you eat. Makes you accountable doesn't it! I am going to enjoy your journey and have already joined your site. Best of luck to you on this life changing journey!! Oh, I forgot, my name is Gail and my blog is The star of my blog is Little Willow who is a younger sister to Mistaya and Maggie. The blog is about 8 years old already!! Keep up our great work!! Gail
