WW check in #9 and something shocking

No, BatGirl, I’m not pregnant.

Last time I checked in I talked about what I could do now that I couldn’t do before.  While I can happily report that I’m slowly retiring pants that I used to wear exclusively and able to get into more and more of my “skinny” pants and jeans (even if I don’t wear them out of the house yet) the number on the scale seems to be stuck.

Part of this last two weeks stall out is that I’ve been away from home quite a bit and otherwise indulging in ways I shouldn’t. I’m not going to be mad at myself right now even if I had wanted to get to a certain weight by the wedding and now it’s not likely to happen. (12 lbs in 33 days? No good. That’s creating a deficit of 1275 calories a day, every day. It’s not that important to me!)

Shit happens. I’ll get over it. Let’s talk about something else. Something anyone who knows me would be shocked that is about to come out of my fingertips and brain.

I’m thinking about running a half marathon.

(Yeah, you just read that right, I’ll let that sink in.)

Frank sent me the link to a half marathon he’s thinking about doing this fall and I thought about how much satisfaction I get from meeting each running goal I’ve set for myself. Running half a mile more before a walk break, getting my mile time lower and lower, it’s been interestingly satisfying. I’m still pretty sure that I’m allergic to running, but the symptoms are starting to be less severe.

So, I looked up some training programs and while there isn’t enough time to properly train for the one Frank is thinking of running, there’s no reason (I currently have) that I couldn’t do it next year.

I’m going to run the 5k associated with this one I think and go from there.

How does this relate to a WW check in? Think of all those extra activity points! (I currently earn 7 for a 30 min run. That will come down slightly as I *hopefully* lose weight.) While I’ll have to be conscious of not over eating those activity points, they’ll be a help in my day and continue trimming me down.

    You could totally do a half marathon.

    If you decide you really don’t want to – get pregnant. That’ll get you off the hook. 😉

    Which half? I wanted to do one in October, but that’s too soon. I think I’ll be doing my first in the spring, but I don’t know where or what yet.
