Sluggish ..

Sluggish is how I feel today.
I have just returned from a long weekend

 Where we did a lot of
these guys.

Love Lake Powell.
Once we returned the hubs had to work two late nights back to back.
That meant I was outnumbered 4 to 1.
No running for me.

Today I thought I'd jump on for a quick and easy 3 miles.
It was anything but easy.
I was winded just one mile in.
I guess it probably didn't help that I ate Chic Fil A for lunch.
Chicken nuggets and fries.

But it got me thinking about how much diet and exercise really go hand in hand.
I mean don't get me wrong.  I know this.
But you know how you can get into that mindset of, "I can eat this because I'll run it off later."?
Yep, I think like that too.
I've lost about 27 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight after baby #4.
I really want to lose another 10-15 lbs.
But once I started running regularly the pounds just stopped coming off.
What the hell?

Anyone else had this problem?
Did you find a solution?
Eating less and still running just doesn't seem like much of an option.

  1. Thank you so so much for your comment on my blog. I am so excited to have found yours. I almost always gain weight when I increase my mileage. It is really weird and I still no exactly sure why this happens but it is very common.

    I just read about your daughter and am so inpsired by her story. Wow what a challenge that must be for you and for her. I am so excited to follow along your journey! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by!
