Talkin' smack! And no, running a marathon does NOT mean you get to eat like a trucker.

I'm getting a little better at picking on Paige. We have a good time giving each other a hard time, but we both want each other to succeed at losing the 10 lbs. We just each want to finish first!

It's day... what... 5 of "lose 10 lbs" race. So far, I am down 2 lbs, but I think I was a little bit poofy on the first weigh-in day. Because 2 lbs a week is not something I can pull off without starving myself. And the results of that would not be worth it. I would rather buy my own stupid necklace than be THAT cranky and miserable for a month! HA!

Anyway - I have definitely stepped up the exercise, and I am eating better than I have in a really long time - probably before the whole Marathon Odyssey began last summer. When we started training, we started eating - more and more! And I ate things I would normally not eat - bagels, bagels, bagels, and so much freakin' pasta... no wonder I managed to GAIN weight during racing season. I'm just glad I wasn't the only one.

Now we're training for a half, and I am trying to remember what veggies taste like and get my energy by eating healthy carbs, not junky carbs. Really hoping that I can manage to take off a little bit of muffin top in the process.

Especially now that there's jewelry and bragging rights involved.

    I suppose you must give up muffins to give up the muffin top! Veggies are good! Yum...just keep that in mind when those bagels start a calling!

    Jewelry?!? Do tell (or link)!!

    The only time I can eat like a trucker is when I'm swimming a lot. And since I have no gym membership, that means, well never!

    Good luck on beating Paige, and thanks for the thumbs-up for my *almost* hitting my first 10 pounds. :)
