I weighed in yesterday at my lowest adult weight ever and so a good thing about this process as Coach Lizz pointed out is that most people gain weight while training for a marathon. I eat and some days I eat a lot but I have been trying to eat smartly. My husband makes fun of my "gourmet" dinners.
But I quite enjoy them and they are filling. Now today is a different story. We had an ice cream truck at work with homemade ice cream - a treat for the employees for getting through our inventory in a timely manner. Most of my co-workers were telling me that they probably had "diet" ice cream but as I told them, there is no point in that. I do like a good homemade ice cream. And it was yummy!
111 hours to race start. And it looks like it's for real because they show me with a bib number.
