Well, it's been two months since my last check-in, and what a crazy two months it's been. Between vacation, starting my new job, and some assorted other excuses, I've really been off the exercise wagon. It's hard to say for sure, since I seem to be completely incapable of holding the same pose two of these sessions in a row, but I think I slid backwards. I see a thicker middle, but my ankles look smaller. Or I'm imagining all of it...
I can't be too upset. It's kind of a miracle the budge isn't more pronounced. I blew off my long runs during the past few weekends, and I've been eating like a horse (healthy entrees and healthy-ish snacks...but lots and lots of snacks). However, I had a touch of insomnia this morning and ended up running 5 miles - this the red face and bad hair in today's picture.
The next check-in should be October 1, after my next half-marathon and maybe once the weather has cooled a tiny bit. Maybe by then I'll have settled into a better pattern and finally broken the size 14 mark.
