(I figured I should get to know what I really have to work on these last 10 days, eh?)
The good news: abs aren't a 6-pack, but the stomach is hanging in there. Actually, it's not hanging that much at all. Woo-hoo!
The bad news: when you're angling to look good in a bikini, with all the focus on the stomach, you forget that extra hip flesh is going to be the culprit.
(See: adjusting, adjusting, adjusting those bottoms. New Week IX Buzzphrase: side leg raises.)
The bad news (2): pasty, pasty, pasty skin. Very pasty.
(I wonder if self-tanning lotion is something that I can pay for with my flex-spending benefits card from work?)
The bad news (3): the return of the cereal addiction. 2/3 box of GoLean! Sunday night, 1/2 box Kashi Heart to Heart last night. T
That's 11 servings of (albeit healthy and fiber-laden) carbohydrates shooting straight to the aforementioned hips.
I chronicled this development on my Facebook status yesterday, and bless the heart of my former writing instructor who then commented:
"carb away. you're a running fool."Still struggling with the great dichotomy of marathon training: burning calories like a fool....and consequently eating like a fool and putting them all back.
(But, I should say, despite the constant Kashi infusion.....the burning may be winning.)
Bring on March 22!
