Bits from the week!

Lots of good runs were achieved this past week, lots of good workouts done also. I would like to have done a run on Sat but alas the thigh muscles on the top of my left leg are screaming after sitting two hours pushing a clutch in and out in stop and go traffic for a total of 7 miles Fri. I think I had better get to a gym and work the right leg so I get evened out in the muscle area.

I did a really cool Bio mechanical analysis on my feet and a look at how they run at a high tech fancy shoe store filled with only running stuff. I need lots of strength support on my outside leg especially the left. WOW what and answer to the reason why my left hip gives me trouble. My shoes are good but a lot of the support is in the arch so now I am going to have to save the pennies to get a shoe that is really solid all the way around and for sure on the back outside of my foot.
Friday at the Dr. office we heard great news that says the Little Guy Jer is actually on the growth charts these days. Now that he has endured a years worth of having to have a growing shot every evening we are finally seeing some progress. I knew it because he was moving through clothing sizes but its nice to have the Doctors see it and start to jump up and down happily too. As mean as it is to have to give your little guy a shot over and over again its nice that there is finally a result for all the torture that has to be given.

Eating is going really well I am paying attention to keeping it all whole grains, lots of veggies and some fruits and not over eating, I think I am eating better then I ever have in my life. At least I am getting more veggies then what I used to. The veggies are with every meal also. I am also working to make sure that my biggest meal occurs at lunch time so that I am not caught going to bed with a heavy tummy.
Breakfasts are getting more consistent for the girl who was never good at that. I do have to kick myself once in a while and think hey its getting past 9:30 are we eating breakfast or lunch only today. I am waiting on pins an needles to get my lovely drink for the morning fueling that I need to do. It should arrive in the mail soon. Now the goal is to get the little guy to tank up eating in the morning also along with the Hubby who has to leave at such an unearthly hour sometimes and so so sucks at doing a morning meal (and he is a health professional who should know better at eat a morning get going meal).

On the wrestling front:
We have C boy who stays right on weight without starving himself, he is eating really healthy except he dislikes celery he says. This week he has had 9 wins all pins and 2 losses. Yes one of those losses was against the Nationally ranked high school senior that he is living to beat some time this year. He said it was a total mental loss because he tried a move that got him in to a position to be pinned and he forgot that the kid has lots of experience and was not using techniques to do the wrestle. Live an learn and go on its just a game is his attitude which is really a good one to have. He has decided he needs to strengthen his fingers lots more because his grip is not very strong.
The Junior high boys K and Mc well they made a bet that I couldn't run with the team in laps and get to the end so I did it after having ran two miles earlier that morning. 5 min laps= about a mile and yep I did it faster then my usual run times. Mc took pity and never went ahead of me. K boy I barley saw he went fast and furious. All the other boys were impressed and gave me high fives or told me that I was good. Made me feel pretty darn good to know that I can run with them too these days.

One confession to make, I can't not keep from a peek at the scale I just don't tell the Hubby and I wont record it, but it is back up 10 pounds but sticking right at my last hypothalamus set point. This was from my previous round that I did a good set job setting my system like Dr. Simeons says to do. Very unlike this last flub up from the holiday avalanche slide that I made. Its a testimony to me that following protocol and doing things right with the diet is important. On to next weeks goal bumping up to 5 mile run at least once this week.


  1. Hooray!!! I'm so glad for you! And Little Guy too. I've put you guys up on the tally board. Sounds like quite the workout for you with the clutch.

    I think it probably will be great for you to do some running training. I've got that 10K...What's your plan?

  2. Going to bed on a full tummy makes me feel icky. Too bad it's midnight right now and I'm hungry! I always get re-hungry if I'm not in bed by 11pm. Whoops!
