Weigh in Wednesday and Half Marathon Training

Weigh In Wednesday

This is my second attempt at blogging today. My first attempt was spoiled by my copying and pasting from Facebook. It looked so horrible, I had to just delete it. I'm blogging online to link up with Heather, Ash, and Erin. I usually blog on the trusty iPhone but the blogger app does not allow for any HTML. (Shouldn't that be an option?)

Here I am after the Spirit of Survival, my very first half marathon. I was in good shape. Today, not so much. I have gained those pesky 10 pounds again. This is possibly the fourth time I've had to shed those same pounds, which is rather annoying. I have 79 days until my trip to Sandals and I want to be comfortable in a bikini.

I need to make progress! This will happen with my current half marathon training and the race is before the trip! Tomorrow, I'll be running 5 miles. I have been focusing on nutrition and specifically trying to keep to the recommended ratios on Myfitnesspal: 55% carbohydrates, 30% fat, 15 % protien and net calories of 1290.
Me, before the Route 66 half marathon. I know with all this training for half marathons, the weight and inches will be where I need them. The clothes shouldn't feel so tight. I'll be ready for the beach before I get there. I haven't actually weighed in but I'll get around to the scale later. Is anyone else running the Go Girl half in OKC? Do you want to friend me on Myfitnesspal (username: esthernorine) or the Nike app? Sorry for the old photos and going link crazy but all my photos are on my phone and since I'm on the website, I might as well make my links.



  1. You will totally make progress and shed those pesky 10 lbs., no doubt about that! Thanks for linking up but sorry the blogger app is such a pain... it never ever works right for me either!

  2. I've never been able to post from my phone. I can't handle writing large amounts of text on the small keypad. Maybe I will have to give a try... as long as I don't need any html ;)

  3. Great job getting back into the swing of things! And a bikini is excellent motivation, that's for sure!

  4. Oh yeah, beach resort is definitely some good motivation! It sounds like you know what you're doing so stick with it! Ive always wanted to be a runner but the most I've done is one 5k haha. Maybe I'll jump back on MFP and join in on the food tracking (again lol)

  5. I can start or finish a post on the app on my phone but can't figure out how to do the pictures or formatting LOL.

  6. found you :)
    and on MFP as well, the more faces I see, the more guilt I will have if I don't pop in to track my food as well as my workouts.

  7. My clothes are a little tight right now too -- geesh -- you will be where you want to be in 79 days! I am jealous - I want a vacation like that :)


I love all comments, questions, and positive feedback. Constructive criticism is questionable. Joking, a little. :)
