Swamped

Going through a very hectic time at work which is fine but it leaves very little time for anything except 'serious' writing.  A lot of other things tend to fall by the wayside including blog writing, food journaling and so on.  At least I've kept the running going; pretty steady 4 to 5 miles per day every day except on Friday.  Also took yesterday (Wednesday) off due to some tightness in my calves.  One thing I do remember from an over-training episode years ago is that waking up with chronically sore legs is not normal.  If your calves are sore all the time, take some time off running.

The Olympic Marathon Trials are coming up this Saturday and I will probably stake out a spot along Allen Parkway and Waugh Drive to take some photographs.  Looks like the temperatures are going to be in the 30's so I will have to dress super warm, not something I am really geared for!  Can't miss the opportunity to get some nice pics though.   

Day of the 100 Days of Weight Loss is about postponing a decision to start eating snack foods, appetizers, cookies and desserts.  Good advice as it is easier not to start, than to stop, with so many of these tempting treats!

i am sooo excited to watch the trials on saturday!!!

i agree that especially with all of my work travel it's really easy to just stop doing some things, but i'm really trying to stick with the food journal. I won't do it forever, but i really hope to get something out of it :)

Thank you for the advise on sore legs. That would be nice if you can get some good shots. I am not keeping a food journal, but in process of a weight management program to lose 27 pounds to start off the year right. Take care, Im now following your blog.
