marcia of running off at the mouth!
email me your mailing address marcia and i'll pass it along to the american cancer society folks so that *they* get your package to you in a timely fashion. (we all know how well the post office and i get along)
thanks to everyone who entered and shared their personal health-endeavors. turns out i don't have to blame a crappy moh speech on you guys since no one really offered to write it for me :) (sorry chris, your 'joke' wasn't happening!) haha.
here's a tally of what you guys admitted to working on/need to work on:
- soda/diet soda - 6
- fruit/veggies - 4
- sunscreen - 6
- drinking water - 2
- giving in to dessert - 3
- eating healthy/portion control - 8
- stretching - 1
hmm running. still (sorta) chugging along. took a good chunk of days off as mentioned around the wedding and am realizing i need to ramp it up soon for a little 50k in november! yep, after my double-marathons (and some advice from johnny) i took the plunge and signed up for an ultra :)
anyway i'm just plodding along for now. most days running still feels awkward and i'm slow. i've been wondering lately if i need to seriously revamp my diet (ie: not just cut out/cut back on m&m's). i've been having a bit of troublesome health issues for awhile (other than the vertigo) that my doctors haven't been able to help with (i've been trying their suggestions and prescriptions for over two years now), and figure a cleaner diet sure couldn't hurt. i'm just so bad at enforcing healthy eating habits lately.
then i conveniently read about my hawaii friends cutting back on gluten and noticing a change in how they feel/perform athletically, so i'm more-seriously considering a clean sweep of the diet. we'll see... i mean, i have to eat up the rest of my delicious cookies first anyway right?
