I feel bad about that, as if I'm being rude or ignoring the people that take time to read my ramblings and then actually comment on them. So . . . to those that comment, thank you! I appreciate every single comment I get. There have been times where I felt no one was reading at all. =) And to those that don't comment, but still read my thoughts, thank you as well. I don't comment very often on other's blogs, but I read every single person I follow. (Even though I get way, way behind sometimes.)
I have been stuck at 158.6 or 8 for about 6 weeks now. (The week of Christmas I gained a little, but I lost it the next week.) I get so tired of sitting at one number for so long. This is why it has taken me almost a year to lose 18 lbs. I sat at 160 for 8 weeks . . . So, tonight we are going shopping and I am going to start buying spinach again to make my morning smoothie. It seems every time I start drinking it, I lose a couple more lbs. I just get tired of making it every morning. But Maddox loves it, and it must do something really good for me, since I always lose weight when I start drinking it again.
Yesterday I ran another 4 miles on the treadmill. Thankfully it wasn't a late run (I really don't like doing it after 8pm, but sometimes it's the only time I can. Have I mentioned how much I love my treadmill because I CAN go out and do it at 8pm?). I had several things going on in my brain while I was setting up the run, I was thinking I would do my normal 6.7 mph at a 2 incline, so I set the incline to 2. I've been listening to an audiobook while I run, it's the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, (I read them awhile ago, but Damian got the audiobooks for Christmas so I started listening to them, they are really good). Anyway, I knew I was almost done with Catching Fire so I thought I'd run at a 7mph pace until the end of the book and then I'd go back to my slower pace when I switched books. So I set the treadmill at 7mph, forgetting that I had already set the incline at 2. At about mile 2, I realized that I was running at an incline of 2 at the higher pace, but I was doing okay, a little winded but okay, so I decided to stick it out. I figured the book was almost done and I'd reset everything.
Lucky me, the book didn't end, it just kept going and going. By the time I reached mile 3 I thought, I'm all in, I might as well increase the speed for this last mile. I did decrease the incline to a 1 and then increased the speed to 7.2. That wasn't much of a difference, especially since I decreased the incline, so at 3.25 miles I increased it again to 7.4. I was feeling it by then, but just for
