This post is random in itself, since my last post was two months ago!
For the month of March, the husband and I tried the Engine 2 Diet. No oil, no butter, no meat or animal by-products, except honey. No booze. The first two weeks were hard, because I was fixing two dinners. One for the kids and one for the parents. We started slightly cheating after two weeks. I lost one pound by the third week. ONE. ONE POUND! I did not feel any better by the end of the 18 days. We are no longer on it, but we still eat lots of veggies.
Pea #1 and I signed up for a 5k run. A Zombie must have gotten ahold of my brain, because I don’t run. Ever. I can’t even run, without gasping for breath, to our mailbox. We started the Couch 2 5k training plan, so I wouldn’t embarrass myself in front of the world. I can now run 2 minutes and walk 2 minutes for 25 minutes total. I really think there should be a plan like Floor 2 Couch, before starting C25k.
To help us run “better”, I bought each of us running shirts and socks. Shorts for The Pea, and a Bionic Bra for me. Yes, I did say Bionic Bra. I needed something that really works um… you know what I mean. I thought I’d go out running in style, so I bought a purple one. It’s shiny. I am miffed because my family won’t let me run in just jogging pants and the sports bra. Everyone else does.
I am thrilled the new styles of ladies’ shirts. The back actually covers the butt. Why did it take so long to become stylish?
