"Pain is temporary, Pride is forever"
- Anonymous

Well, I guess this is getting to be a once a week thing, instead of a once a day type thing, it's not intentional, I swear.

I don't know about you guys, but I love the fall time. I love the changing colors, I love the cooler weather.

Lets see a little bit of a quick update. Running has been almost non-existent for about the last three weeks. I guess I wouldn't say non-existent, but very limited. I've been fighting with being sick for about three weeks now. It started as a sinus infection, but just remained hanging around as a cold with congestion and being tired all the time, so needless to say, running took a back seat for a bit. I've still managed to get at minimum one run a week in, and this week, I'll be back to a full schedule. I ran 6 miles this morning, and it went great, so I'm looking forward to getting back into that groove.

As far as eating goes, it's been alright, I won't lie and say it's been phenomenal, because it hasn't, but it could be a whole LOT worse. With not feeling real well, I can tell you that usually the last thing on my mind is eating great, and the candy dish at work has been calling my name lately, perhaps a little too much. But this week, being I'm finally starting to feel on this side of the living, I'll be getting back to my very good ways.

I feel so much better and have so much more energy when I'm eating right and exercising, when you get thrown off by sickness you can learn to appreciate it even more!

I'm still seeing the guy that I mentioned a couple posts ago, I'm always afraid to go into details about new guys, as it seems like when I do, something blows up and it ends ha ha. But needless to say, I'm still seeing him :)

Anyways, I think that is the longest update that I've done in awhile, but I promise I'm going to catch up on your guys blogs next week, and I will post again this coming week!

Happy Fall everyone!

Month #3 Weigh In

Well I weighed in this morning, and while the scale didn't show down as much as it did early in the week, it showed me to be 140.0lbs, which is damn near amazing. I didn't think I'd ever see that number on a scale. Still my goal weight in 142, but heck, I'll take the 140.

I ran 5.5 miles this morning, it wasn't a stellar run, I had to walk a few times, and it was a little slow, but nonetheless, I got it done, hopefully tomorrows run will be a bit better.

Anyways, I keep promising real updates, and I'll do it again, hopefully tomorrow. But I'm alive and doing well, I swear!

Hope everyone is doing wonderful!

Hopefully a real blog post tomorrow again.

But had to share. I've been avoiding the scale, because I knew the digital devil would not be nice to me, I have been sick, and stressed, and while not eating bad, I've been eating more than I should have.

So tonight I decided to buck up and get on the digital devil, I knew I would be a little up, because I always am at night, but I was very very surprised when I read the number 138 on the scale.

Where the heck did that come from? 4lbs under goal weight? What the heck?

Anyways, that's my interesting news.

" Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many--not
on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
- Charles Dickens

I'm alive, I swear.

This cold has been kicking my butt for about the past two weeks, it started off mild, and I could function, and then it got bad, and I got some meds, and now it's being back to mild where I can function, but I'm still just wore down.

Being I'm wore down and been fighting this running has been miserable, and that makes me feel lazy and fat. I finished all but one run last week, and this week I've ran once, and I'm hoping to run another one or two times. Then I'm hoping to be back to normal schedule next week. Kinda a downer when you get so used to something being such a part of your life.

Eating has been fair. I'll be honest, you know how it is when your sick, you just want the food you want, and you don't want to think about anything food related, or at least in the healthy aspect. Have I been doing terrible? Not in the least, but could I be doing better? Most certainly. I'm sure between the lack of running and eating not-so-great, I've probably gained a bit, but I know when things get back to scheduled programming I'll be back down, so I'm ok with that.

Other than that, I've been seeing someone, and seeing alot of them. I'm very happy, and I'll fill you guys in on some details on that at a later date. But the dating front is looking good.

I've decided I won't be weighing in this month, just for said reasons, I don't need a scale to tell me I'm up a bit, i can tell by my clothes. I'm really very content basing my weight on my clothes and not a number, It's becoming a nice "freedom" to have.

Other than that, nothing to new and exciting. Baseball is in Divisional Series, and I'm looking forward to watching those. My long shot that I'm rooting for this year is the Brew Crew! Go Milwaukee!

Anyways, promise the updates won't be so far in between next time, I'm off to catch up on you guys!
