Lol, I had to get on the dreaded  dr.'s scale in my boots, jeans, and winter coat.  (So it was like a double-whammy!). Then, when the assistant told me my blood pressure was "a little bit higher than last time, but nothing to worry about" I was like "well, yeah!  That was a shock--I'm 10 pounds heavier now than I was when I came last summer in my dress and flip flops!"  Lol  She laughed when I said they should do the blood pressure before the scale.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar   724.6 #334 12-7-13 8:13PM Like  Reply

Wishing you a wonderful vacation! Well, as I might have mentioned prior, I'm not very good at the running activity😁 I have seen many people running through DTD in the morning before though. I have also walked that path from the M&F parking to DTD instead of the tram, like SOS mentioned. I would think that's a pretty good option too.

I had the same problem with training for the DL half.  My husband was good about reminding me that my body comp was changing: I was losing fat, but not weight.  It seems counterintuitive, but it's so much more complex than the old "calories in / calories out" theory: there's a lot of chemistry involved.  One thing I had to really be conscious of was my fuel before, during and after the run.  The Gatorade, gels, blocks, coconut water....they all add up (and then I have the added issue of being STARVING after a really long run).  It's taken a lot of Googling and playing around with diet, electrolytes, and hydration, but I did start to feel comfortable in the weeks leading up to the race.  I didn't lose, but had the same mindset as you: my performance was more important than the scale.  You are doing amazing: just think of what your body is doing!  :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar   724.6 #334 10-23-13 5:59PM Like  Reply

ah, thanks for that.....glad I'm not alone in this. I'm still figuring out the fuel and hydration thing as I gain mileage, so you make a good point about the calories adding up. I'm trying to just concentrate on getting stronger (and hopefully a little faster!).  :0) - D55CR  249.9 #1508 10-25-13 11:24AM

That has been my exact experience.  I've actually gained a few pounds in the last few weeks, lol. My body just wants to hang onto it, also.  I found that if I run more than 8 or 9 miles, I'm starving.  I tried to keep it semi-healthy, but I over-indulged a few times.  I was upset the other day, but c'est la vie!  I'll start running more moderately and my body will settle back in.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar   724.6 #334 8-25-13 6:57PM Like  Reply

Training for my 1/2 marathon is going well. I ran 4.9 miles this weekend, and actually felt pretty good the rest of the day. I'm actually looking forward to my next run.
Good for you! I'm trying to "run" as much as I walk (at night with the doggy), but I swear I get out of breath so easily! I can only go probably 1/4 mile before I have to stop and walk for awhile. I'm not sure if I even want to put out the effort... - msdizmaui   1122.9 #205 6-17-13 3:57PM Like  Reply

Have you tried Jeff Galloway's method? His training programs use a run/walk/run method. That is the ONLY way I can make that distance. I run for 1 min, then walk for 1 min. But to start out I could only run about 20 seconds. You should check him out. - D55CR  249.9 #1508 6-18-13 8:38AM

My daughter is a personal trainer and she started me on an eating plan as part of my training. At first I was having trouble eating that much food, but not it is getting easier. I'm pretty much a vegetarian, but I eat some fish. She has me eating high protein and it's hard to get enough without eating meat.

With you again. I did great all day then after dinner sat there and started looking around for things to eat.

I love to have sweets before bed. I found if I allow myself the correct portion vs not at all, I don't feel the need to shovel 10 Oreos in my face when I cave and buy sweets because I haven't had them in so long. Lol. I stress eat too and it's difficult. Maybe have a bunch of pre-portioned healthy snacks ready to go in the fridge?

I know! I have the same issue. I've found that 10-15 mins of stretching, yoga, or Pilates actually really helps--it curbs the need to snack and helps me manage my stress level and relax before bed. When all else fails, I brush and floss or use white strips, lol, because I don't like the taste of food after the mint flavor and I don't want to have to brush my teeth again! Also, I've been known to paint my nails because it distracts me and I have to wait for the polish to dry. Recently, my husband and I have been reading books aloud to each other in the evening, and that's a really nice distraction from zoning out in front of the TV with snacks: I can't eat because I have to read! Plus, it's just a really positive hobby for us to have :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar   724.6 #334 4-11-13 3:17PM Like  Reply

I will definitely be working on getting outdoors more often this summer. I ran 2 miles with my daughter a couple of weeks ago and realized how much harder it is out on the road.
