"para hacer galletas?"

I wore my new running shoes this morning and it was awesome. They're so squishy and bouncy and make me want to run all the time. Once again I'm faced with the reality that tools are important when it comes to exercise and to deny myself the right things is counter-productive. My old running shoes are perfectly clean and neat and shiny and it makes me think that I don't need new ones even though I've been running/walking in them for a year and a half and the soles are done used up. All the experts say you need new shoes for running pretty frequently and seriously, it makes a difference. They have like knowledge and expertise, that's what makes them, you know, experts so I should stop thinking I'm so smart and just do what I'm told.

Last time I got all bloggy with it did I mention that I haven't stood on a scale in ages. I actually had to vacuum it this weekend. Sad. I have noticed that my pants are getting a little looser, especially in the ass...which as you know I HATE. Why must the ass disappear, cup size man...I want to lose a cup size dammit...or at least the waist...I'm a little melancholy about the loss of the junk in my trunk. I'm going to need a junk implant, it's going to be embarrassing.

How do you follow that, I don't even know where that thought came from. I haven't had to pack chocolate for the day in ages. I can totally tell how well things are going by how much chocolate I eat in a week. This week has been almost completely chocolate free so it must be pretty good. I always think it's sort of a cop-out to let your hard work go to hell because things in your life go badly but damn is it easier to do the right things when you don't want to jump off a bridge. We humans are very complex.

I track my runs at Runner's World because they keep track of how far I've run in my shoes. Then I know when I need new ones. It's easier than waiting until I get shin splints :)

I need new shoes myself, but I spend so much on baby things that I'm loath to part with another hundred bucks for quality shoes. Luckily they still have my insoles/shoe model at the running store, so I can get some as a gift to myself when it gets cool enough to walk around here.

Which will be in about three months. sigh.

I bought some "chocolaty delight" cereal, but I can't shake the feeling that it is like eating special k mixed with ex-lax. It is indeed chocolately, not chocolate.

It took me forever to find shoes that actually fit correctly to run in. Matt told me to buy more than one pair but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I figure if I start looking now for the next pair I should find them right on time. I should probably start saving too on that last note...

You and I are opposites...I have lost 10 dress sizes on top and just about half of my bottom, I mean the difference is staggering, the junk in the trunk just won't go. for people like me, the very pear shaped ones, it's the hardest part to lose, ughhh! No boobs, major ass! that's me...enjoy the new shoes.
