4.5 mile run today at a relatively AWFUL pace. It was also pouring rain and I was wearing Vibrams for the first time in months. (Excuses, excuses)
That was my work out today. I supposedly burned 800 kcal according to my new heart rate monitor but that seems like a whole lot to me.

This is me in action, post work out yesterday. I took this picture…because, a male requested that I send him a “cute picture of your face”. Uhhh, I was not cute at that moment.
Anyways, I’ve been so ridiculously busy and will continue to be. I don’t think I got that job as the bike cross country person…that’s fine, I have another job interview to be a swim instructor next week. Fingers crossed!
Also: I have two new work out buddies, a good friend of mine who lives down the street just got a gym membership at my gym and she’s pretty much dtf (and by “dtf” I mean…down to work out? I am not sure why “dtf” seemed fit but I’m keepin’ it there). & THEN! There is this mother who drops off her 2 year old son at the daycare I work at just so she can have time to work out. She’s got such a rockin’ body I can’t even handle it…we exchanged phone numbers today aaaand we’re gonna do kickboxing together. ;DD
Aside from ALL THAT — I got an apartment in Syracuse, NY and my lease starts in July…I joined the SU Sailing Team, I went off the paleo diet over the weekend at a Sweet 16 and my hands have been swollen ever since. What else…uhh, oh I have a video shoot to do over the weekend! The end bye

Modeling my new Free People shorts, and week 5 of my paleo transition.
They’re size 26, I’m not sure what that transitions in to real size life.
I also need to get out of the habit of taking these pics at work. lolZ

My hair is wet. I am at work. Skeletons.
Oh also, this arrived in the mail yesterday. I stayed up until like midnight* reading it.. I haven’t done that with a book since the Harry Potter days.
*Midnight isn’t particularly late but I am a baby and I fall asleep by like 10:30 every day.
The past two days have been rest days, and today will be a forced rest day because I am working 12 hours and then coming home at 6 PM to surprise family company. Saturday is my usual long dog hike (if it’s not raining) + running + weights. I think at least 1-2 days out of the week of REALLY pushing yourself…is awesome, and just feels awesome.
See also: My coffee was not black this morning because some almond milk was accidentally added to it while I wasn’t looking and I took two sips and couldn’t figure out why it was the grossest tasting coffee I’ve had in awhile. My palate has obviously made a shift for the better.
Oh, and then…I made a paleo cherry pie last night, for company tonight. Daring? Absolutely, I’ve never made a pie in my life. It smelled and looked delicious though. I’ll take pix on pix on pix on pix and post the recipe later.
So, I’ve been going approximately 2 weeks straight with eating well, without cravings, without overeating, etc. etc. I’ve also had 2 weeks straight of a fairly stress free environment, and just feeling happy and sane.
Yesterday, after my job interview (of which I got very nervous during) I…immediately started to eat. I felt hungry, I wanted food (but I had eaten lunch just before the 20 minute interview, shouldn’t have been feeling this way). Luckily, I ate WELL but I did snack and I haven’t even been tempted to snack or anything. I went over my caloric allowance yesterday, but not by too much. I ate a handful of raw walnuts and sliced an apple with sunflower butter spread on the pieces. I was still hungry but I had plans so I was forced to leave my house (and food) which kind of made me cool off, but I feel as though I probably would have continued eating up until dinner.
Even eating the nuts, and apple, and sunbutter all together was incredibly filling and made me nauseous for the following hours…which is exactly how I felt all winter long. The winter that I gained 20 pounds. Which, coincidently was the most stressful winter of my life.
I just need to recognize “cravings” for what they’re actually related to (emotional eating)…and acknowledge them, and drink water, and breathe and let them pass. That’s the only way I’ll get back.. because, let’s face it, my life’s not going to be stress free forever.
