Went to bed hungry

My shoulder is killing me.  I can't hold my right arm out to the side right now.  Poor me.  

Yesterday all I did in the end was my run with the pup.  When I was done, Tiger Woods came on my NikePlus to tell me "congratulations, you just ran your fastest mile to date".  I don't think that is true, likely it is my fastest mile on this new iPod, but it made me feel good anyhow.  

The pup was being a little monkey yesterday, and for the last... maybe 5 minutes I had to pull him a fair bit.  Not drag or anything, but he kept trying to stop and sniff.  He is at daycare today (I have a hair appt, and don't like to leave him in his kennel too long, plus he loves to go play with the other dogs) so I will run without him.  I hate to admit it, but I'm a bit excited.  No running with poop!  See, it's the little things in life, right?

About my post title.  I decided yesterday, with my points overage looming, that I would eat my 22 pts and NO AP points (I earned 2 with my run).  I know it was all in my head, but I went to bed early and read because I felt like I was going to die from hunger!  And I had really good, quality eats yesterday.  Lots of quality grains and lean proteins.  There was no way I was hungry.  I drank water, but that did nothing, except get me up twice in the middle of the night!!

Anyhow, I am now only 11.5 in the hole, and I'm hoping to be AT LEAST 9.5 in the hole by the end of today.  All we can control is our next action.

Anyone out there watching So You Think You Can Dance?  We finally got around to watching last weeks episodes.  Wow - they have such good dancers on there - it is just so sad to see anyone leave!  I love dance shows - they just put me in such a good mood.  One thing I've noticed though.  While I find all of the dancers almost a bit more talented than last go (with Twitch and the gang), the choreographies haven't moved me this year like they did last year.  I guess it's still early yet in the season though, right?


  1. Good luck at weigh in tomorrow. Sounds like you're doing well at erasing some of the overage.

  2. sorry about your shoulder!

  3. I love hearing Lance tell me I've had my longest workout to date!! Crazy how motivated I get by that!
