Random Monday


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?

  1. We need to start walking across the country again. I am such a slacker. And it shows. I have never been so frustrated with my appearance.

    I don’t need a new style of shirt. I need a mu-mu.

  2. No oil, no butter, no meat? My gosh. That sounds miserable. What’s left? Butterless rabbit food? Oatmeal with no milk or sugar? How depressing. That makes me want some chocolate.

  3. What a hoot! I love your new post! Happy running!
