No need to brag....

So I ran another 13 miles yesterday.  Afterwards, I was feeling pretty pumped.  So I posted about the accomplishment on Facebook as well as  

And then I started to feel like a pathetic attention whore.  I'm not one who has ever shied away from attention, that's for sure.  But outright bragging has never been my style.  I don't feel like I have bragged about my weight loss or some of the other things that I have accomplished, but maybe I have.

I am proud of some of my accomplishments, but as you know, I truly don't see myself as anyone's inspiration and I'm not trying to shove anything in anyone's face. I think there is a fine line between giving yourself props and being annoying.  What do you guys think?

In other news, this is the winter that just won't die and I'm getting more and more sick of it.  I can't wait to wear short sleeves and to not leave in the morning bundled up like an eskimo.  And I'm sick of freezing my ass off every time I got for a run!  We explored a new trail in Onondaga County this weekend, and I couldn't fully enjoy it because my fingers were frozen!  I wanted to take a really long walk, but by 6 miles, I was so cold all I wanted to do was get in the car and CRANK the heat.

Ok, enough whining.  The good news is that I got a LOT done yesterday after my run.  The cleaning and organization goals are going pretty well.  That always makes my mood better when I can cross things off my "TO DO" list!!  I hope everyone out there is meeting their goals!  And if you are in one of the warm places - thank your lucky fricking stars!!

  1. I think there's a difference between bragging and saying LOOK AT ME. I CAN DO THIS. YOU CANT. and saying "OMG CAN YOU BELIEVE I DID THIS? I DIDNT THINK I COULD DO IT BUT I DID IT!!" I don't think you were bragging. You were proud of an accomplishment you worked hard for. :)
