A little padding in the middle

Since I crossed the Columbus Marathon finish line I have gracefully put on 10+ pounds and it is uncomfortable.  I am not sure how or why I let myself do this.  I've known its been there for the last 5 months and occasionally I think I need to do something about this....but I've been lazy about actually taking an action steps.

So.  In order to get my running game back on and to 'eat like my bunnies,' I will promise to get down to my Columbus Marathon weight with the big goal of getting down to my wedding weight.   All of these things are feesible with a MUCH improved diet and exercise. 

I figure I will challenge myself week by week, logging in and sharing how its going.  The big thing I need to improve upon is cutting out all the junk food and snacks.  If I thought I could get away with it, pizza and icecream would be my diet entirely.

I think what bugs me most are the people who continually tell your, or say "Hey, your run alot, you should be able to eat whaterver you want."

Guess what it doesn't work like that and I have the extra 10 to prove it.

So here goes:

Goal 1: 126
Final Goal 123

How did I work towards this goal today??
-Ran 3 miles in 31:44
-drank more water
-intend to lift after work and take the dog for a walk
-stay within my calorie range.
