Three Things Thursday

Helllloooo Bloggers!  Another list nice.  Figured I would chime in with my "Three Things Thursday" since I am too tired to write a post.

1.  I am obsessed with Black Iced Tea from Starbucks and now from Traders Joe's.  I just bought the Trader Joe's iced tea this week and it AMAZING!  They only bummer about my black iced tea at Starbucks is that "Treat Receipts" don't work since they are $1.90 something...but at least hubby can get his quad shot iced latte and we don't have to battle for the treat receipt.  Oh and the other problem is that it's caffeinated and that is why I couldn't get to sleep until 2 am last night...oops!  Speaking of Trader Joe's...they have the best stuff.

2.  Shelly has challenged us bloggers to a 10 Day Streak and I totally accepted...not really knowing if I could or would do it but figured it was worth a try.  Today was DAY #7 and I had my doubts because of my 14 miler (13.5) yesterday and my 2 am bedtime so I figured go for a mile and see what happens!  After a mile I still wanted to keep going...2 came and went and before I knew it mile 3 found me and I still wanted more...I went for 5.5 miles and loved it and could have kept going.  I love running with my friends, but I have to say that my solo run today reminded me of why I love to run.  I got to listen to me music, talk to God and fall in Love with running..AGAIN.  Who knew that Shelly's challenge would do this to me?  I realized that when you do something consistently and don't tire of might actually like it.

3.  Can't believe I gained weight on my vacation. I  know that it's normal, but I was down to my lowest weight in a LONG time and it took forever to get there and within days it comes right back.  SO FRUSTRATING.  Why can weight be sooooo SLOW to come off and then can reappear with a day of cookies?  You know what I mean!  Come on 10 day running streak...get it OFF!  Will I ever be skinny?

For the record, I gained 4 lbs this past 2 weeks!!!! I hear ya sista! Why can't we be skinny?

Marlene said...

Yes, the weight battle is extremely frustrating! It takes weeks or months to lose a few lbs and then they come back on in a matter of DAYS! No fair.

Awesome job on the runs!!

10 days of running? Right now I am really digging my rest days. Since you are marathon veteren i would love any tips. Are you training for another?

I'm totally with you on the weight thing. I swear the logic doesn't work the same for adding weight as it does losing weight. I'm looking forward to no travel for work and cooler weather to focus on eating better and shed those extra pounds.
