I'm a Loser. Baby

I'm just going to do a bullet point list for all of my random ramblings today.

*I weighed in this morning and am 4.4 pounds down from last week. Last week's weigh-in was rough, I had a rough couple of weeks leading up to it so I knew it would be bad. Thankfully, the scale is now heading in the right direction.

*I really didn't want to run last night. I stayed up too late Monday night reading. Side note: I am seriously into this Regency romance author Sarah MacLean, her books are a delight. It's a tough time period to write, the women, obviously, didn't have a lot of choices back in the day. But, she does an excellent job, they are quick reads, and she writes a series including the same characters but giving each of them their starring role. What I am saying is you should check her out. Wow, that was a big side note. Anyway, I really didn't want to run last night but I had a slightly heavier than normal calorie day knowing I would be running and couldn't justify NOT running. It's absolutely gorgeous here right now, yesterday it was seventy degrees! I started running playing the Runner Mental Game of OK I will only do two miles. OK, now I will do three miles. I ended up with 3.20 miles. Not my fastest, but better than 0.0 miles.
No hat, no scarf, no jacket. Yay spring!
*My mother-in-law commented on how she noticed I've been losing weight lately. I didn't want to call her a liar, and instead said thank you, because hey, almost five pounds in a week could be noticeable to someone other than me.

*I am obsessed with Dole chopped salads. Forgive the picture, it's a little blurry, but I made this taco salad on Monday.
I like the chopped salad because it's mostly cabbage with some kale and shredded carrots and the cabbage just feels more solid, you know? I added ground turkey with taco seasonings, a tiny bit of cheese, and salsa instead of salad dressing. It was great!

*I have been focusing on my water like crazy pants.
It's bigger on the inside.
*Finally, I hit a rough patch a few weeks ago. Took me some time to come out of it it. I have to tell you, the women in my LL group are just the best. I got Facebook messages checking on me and posts wondering where I was. It was very sweet and just what I needed to drag myself out of my funk. So, thanks ladies. I am super lucky to have friends like you!
