If there was any - even a tiny little niggle - of doubt that my mental struggles and weight gain was owed in large part to the miserable horrible winter we have had, it has been completely wiped out over the last 3 days.
Sunday I ran 13 miles and had the most relaxing and peaceful day. Monday brought a record breaking high temp of 79 - and me running another 6 miles. After work I took a mat outside and did some ab and core work. I wasn't the only happy camper - the dogs ran and played and stretched out in the hot windy breeze.
Today? More sun and 60. I typically don't run 3 days in a row, but I wanted to - a nice easy 6.5 miles. I felt relaxed and strong - strong body and strong mind.
I haven't even been that hungry - despite the miles. Geez I wonder if my desire to eat is not completely physical - DUH!!
I remain discouraged about my weight, but I see a sliver of hope that I can get my mojo back there as well! I don't know how long this feeling of peace and empowerment can and will last. But I'm going to hold on to it for dear life!!!
And, my friends, I have been seriously thinking about my options for a major life change. Marc has been talking about Colorado. It's beginning to sound good to both of us.
Any readers out there from that great state?
