I think it's a combination of marathon training (EAT ALL THE THINGS.) plus stress eating because of school and job searching PLUS my boyfriend is gone for 12 weeks and I'm sad eating.
So. I've been gaining weight. Or, more accurately, I gained some weight and I can't get it back off.
If you've been around for a while, you might know that I lost 20 pounds in the first year-ish that I had this blog. I wasn't quite where I wanted to be yet, but I maintained that until this winter. It's not about the number on the scale, exactly. That's there, too. But today my ring got stuck on my finger. And my pants aren't fitting like they should.
So I'm trying to go back on the wagon of paying attention to what I'm eating, because eating all the things is always my real trouble. I definitely exercise lots. Just need to eat better.
And I'm putting it here to hold myself accountable. I'm trying to use MyFitnessPal again. If we were friends on there once, we're probably not friends anymore because in a fit of frustration a while back I deleted all my friends... So if you'd like to add me, I'm aestrusz on MyFitnessPal.
More accountability is good, right?
Love from Kansas!
EDIT: I think this post came out more about the scale than I meant it too. When I think about marathon training and the changes I'm forcing on my body -- I EXPECTED the numbers to change. But I know that it's more than that since my clothes aren't fitting right and my rings are getting stuck on my fingers. It's more than just muscle or weight that I should gain during training. Just, FYI.
