Well I survived the Easter break with out too much damage...
My darling husband gave me a Pandora bracelet with 2 charms, one graduation cap, and one fairy tale novel (I have an obsession with Grimm Bros tales) No chocolate!! I was very happy. I did get a few little bits of chocolate from friends and one huge bunny from my Dad but I can eat it all slowly and over time... I'm doing pretty well with temptation these days!
I even went for a 4.5km run on Easter Sunday! Take that know it all Doctors!! It didn't hurt a bit!
Although having 9 days off of training saw the return of Evil Haze... God I hate the bitch!
I'm not sure if I am the only one who does this... but I was jogging along talking to myself (sometime aloud, I'll admit) And I was having a very encouraging conversation... things like 'Suck it up, you can do this.' and my now infamous catch phrase of, 'Just keep going.' When things took a bit of a turn for the worse...
'Wow, my hip is really starting to hurt, (it does this occasionally)
'You know you could always say your finger hurts.' to which I replied, 'But it doesn't - you big liar pants.'
'OMG, this entire time I have been running into ahead wind, no-one would blame you if you stopped.'
Then I realised what was happening and said to myself, 'Oh, it's you, I guess you're back!'
So we were having a very heated conversation, which strangely enough, even though I had agreed to stop about 200mts from home for a cool down walk I ended up sprinting it just to piss Evil Haze off.
Ha! Take that Evil Haze!
Anyway now for the BIGGEST NEWS I HAVE HAD FOR AGES...
I am now officially in a HEALTHY BMI range!
I had a sneaky weigh in this morning and I am 64.5kg (hopefully stays here or drops by Wednesday) Pretty happy with that, only 4.5kgs to goal weight.. Fingers crossed I can get there by the end of the 12 weeks, but it doesn't matter - I'm going for round 3 anyway! I am thinking of doing lean and fit... so I can try to learn to maintain my weight without going crazy the minute I reach my goal weight....
So how was everybody else's Easter?
