Its been awhile

And I've been... I don't know how to say it.. lost, I guess.
I stopped going to Weight Watchers because my weight was doing the old see-saw -- up 1 lb, down 1/2, down 1, up 1... basically I've been the same weight for the past couple of months.
As for the running... I've let myself fall out of it, regularly. And my speed is still somewhere around 13 min/mi - 14:30 or so...sometimes slower depending.
On the advice of my trainer I've decided NOT to do Marine Corps marathon this year. I'm going to (but haven't yet) switch to the 10K.
I'm going to look for a full-marathon for 2015 with a GENEROUS course time limit. like 7hrs... and actually have one in mind.... the Baltimore Running Festival. Don't get me wrong, I want to do Marine Corps Marathon eventually... I LOVE love love Marine Races...but I think that for the first I don't want to have the added pressure of having to hit a certain mile marker by a certain time.... for the first one I just want to finish.
Diet-wise... I've flirted with low-carb, but not sure that I can DO that.. I'm also not weighing in at the moment. I weighed in on July 1...and am not going to weigh in until July 30.
I feel like I'm still stalling out...but of course don't KNOW.
Anyway, that's where I am... I'm still alive.. still fighting the good fight. ;)
