I am in an interesting situation right now. I am both terribly nervous and excited to the point where I am having trouble keeping food down and even sleeping. What am I nervous and excited about? Ugh. I can’t tell you. Something came up and this girl is so ready for it. I am craving something and this fills that need and want. I hate keeping secrets, and I am fairly bad at not telling everyone I see (It’s a McCarty female trait). It would mean instant happiness, and hopefully long term happiness as well. I still can’t tell you what it is though. I can only say it is something awesome. As soon as I can blabber on about it, you can bet your ass that I will.
Well. Now that I have put that nugget of fun out there, let’s talk about how I have not exercised in probably 3 weeks. You would think that I would miss it, right? Yeah, not so much really. I have not missed icy cold weather running. I have not missed getting up early. I have not missed any of it. Except for the act of running, I have missed that in fact. I am very happy with my choice to train and run in a fall marathon versus one this spring. It will make my asthmatic lungs happy and it will make my body happy that I don’t have to run in the snow. Plus, it will make my running medal rack happy because I will be adding a new medal to it! Seems like it has been forever since I have earned a medal and I am ready to grow the medal rack!
I have still been losing weight, even without the exercise. I like to keep the 80/20 rule tucked into the back of my head to remind me to eat happy foods that don’t have a label on them. Sure, I have not been keeping up my end of the 20% portion of this, but I’ll get back to it soon enough.
One thing that has not exactly sidelined me, but has made this season difficult, has been my beloved Cadbury Creme Eggs. Thank goodness they are back. This is the one time of the year that I have zero self control when it comes to candy. I buy the 4 pack and within the next 24 hours they are all gone. Somehow. And I have to buy them if I see them in the store. So, I try and trick myself by not walking past the Easter goody aisle…but those damn eggs are hidden all over the store as if the workers are trying to sabotage me. If they are, then it is surely working. I have already had 13 of these freaking things this season and I have one lonely egg sitting in my desk drawer. I am trying to make that one at least last until tomorrow, since I already had 2 today. What a Monday issue I’ve got going on.
My other bit of news, that I actually CAN tell you, is that I have been selected as a Diet-to-Go Ambassador!
I couldn’t be happier with this news! I had so many good things to say about Diet-to-Go after I reviewed them in January, so this progression seemed natural to me. I am excited to bring you specials as well as let you know more about their company.
Do you have a
drug candy of choice that you have trouble staying away from?
