Nausea just hit me like a ton of bricks, maybe it was the mustard-pickle-jalapeño-turkey wrap I made....maybe my blood sugar is dropping?? I dunno. I got all stoked to update y'all and boom! Grossness.
So I maintained radio silence since Friday because how crazy work has been. Friday turned out to be excellent. Margaritas and Mexican food with friends.
Saturday, was a rest day for me and I took Goliath to the dog park. We played. We swam. Well, he swam. It was hot.
I worked that night, which kept me tame so I could get up for my long run on Sunday. Which was disastrous when there are two accidents on the highway, a 5k on the trail you want to run and half of it is closed due to construction.
They literally blew up the trail. Awesome. I got my miles and am feeling it today.
So I know you are dying to know how the week panned out for my weight loss goals!
Start Weight: 152.6
Week One: 148.6
Woot! Prob just water weight, but I can deal!
OOOH and I finished the Hunger Games series. FINALLY. So good. Read it,
How was your weekend?
What's your favorite drink?
Do you take your pups to the dog park? What's yours like?

Yes, I am owning up to it. When I started this blog, I thought I was done losing and ready to start living. But a little over a year later, still running and weight loss maintained but I feel unhappier than ever with my body.
So, no. I am not obese or overweight. I am vain.
Here are few other things I know about myself that make it difficult for me to lose poundage:
1. I LOVE food. My quality of life revolves around what I am eating that day and how good it is. I very rarely eat for sustenance, I eat for pleasure. I make no qualms about it. I love food, and I have no intention of changing that.
5. The best time if day for me to schedule exercise is first thing in the morning.
6. I MEGALOATHE waking up early.
7. I am addicted to sugar. I have two drawers full of candy at work. Once I tried to give up candy for a week and on the third day I cried.
9. The only real form of exercise I enjoy is running, and I fear my body is beyond use to it.
10. I am scale obsessed. When I commit to losing, I weigh myself far too frequently and I live and die but the fluctuation.
Ok. Now that the excuses are out of the way. I am ready for this.
I don't have a lofty goal, just 10 pounds or fit back into my size 4 pants. Whatever comes first, and then I will reassess my feelings.
This concludes Part 1, stay tuned for Part 2: How I am going to do this!
Are you currently working on any goals?
What kind of things are in your way?

Are you guys ready for the best ice cream ever???
Ok so true it is gelato, but it is the most amazing flavor. If it's fruit flavored it is healthy...right? Buy it. Try it. Thank me later. A coworker actually bought this me! AWESOMEEEE
So I am rocking on cleaning out my produce. Thus far I have polished off:
-a bundle of asparagus
-flat of strawberries
-a whole head of lettuce
-a pound of cherries
-half an onion
Left in my fridge:
-a pound of cherries
-2 granny smith apples
-1 pound of green grapes
-1 zucchini (already grilled for consumption)
-half an onion
Any ideas for fun ways to eat all these?
While I contemplate how gassy I a will be after this week, Goliath and I are just chilling in bed catching up on all ya'lls bloggies! Also just realized I am wearing my one and only division win race t-shirt, I need another hmmm....maybe the Plaza 10k in September??
Do you prefer ice cream, gelato or frozen yogurt?
When you grocery shop how much produce do you buy?
What are your current fitness goals?

|Irrelevant to this post...but it was my lunch yesterday and it pretty?|

I am really trying to focus on my food and finding and maintaining balance. Sometimes, I was I could be hard on myself. I don't beat myself up when I eat ice cream or bacon, which by the way, I have done every day for three days. I am never very strict. I enjoy wiggle room in my diet, but I think I may enjoy wiggle room in my pants more.
I this I that I who? Are you over me talking about myself and using the letter I so much? WILL YOU TELL ME WHAT WORKS FOR YOU?? What gets you focused when it comes to cutting pounds? Tell me! Tell me!
This is what I am doing:
The Bosky House has an empty room, what should it be?
My personal yoga and dance studio?
Clothing optional hang out?

On Deck for tomorrow: Winter Running Do’s and Don’ts
Saturday, June 26, 2010
I'm registered. I have a solid training schedule. I have a great running buddy, and support for long runs. Why am I so nervous? The thought of crossing the finish line nauseates me, and gives me chills. This will be, hands down, my biggest physical accomplishment-maybe even take out that modifier, my biggest accomplishment. I feel that if you can run a marathon, you can pretty much do anything. If you can have the wherewithal and the mental fortitude to run 26.2 miles, then you have the great glass elevator. You can go anywhere, you can do anything.
True to form, I've set some lofty goals for this marathon. Nope, finishing isn't enough. People "just finish" marathons all the time. At the KC Marathon I will: 1) Run the entire thing, only stopping for stations and maybe stretching 2) Finish sub4 hours 3)Set a half marathon PR 4)Really enjoy it.
