Bloggie Give Aways and More Stern Talk

Bloggie Give Away Goodness
 I was stalking, I mean catching up on all of my bloggie friends I missed during the holidays. I found two give aways you might be interested in.

Heather at Run Faster Mommy is giving away a big basket of running related goodies to help her raise money for Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. I love her idea. I may steal it to help in my fundraising.

On a side note: If you'd like to donate to my Team In Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society there's still plenty of time. I'm near my goal but I'd love to raise more than my goal.

Robin at Running Circles around Turtles is has a sweet bag of schwag. You should check out her blog. It's very entertaining.

Stern Talk with Myself

A month or so ago, I had to have a stern talk with myself about my training. I was struggling with the motivation to complete all the miles for my long runs. That talk has had a positive effect. I've been enjoying the training time and smiling thru the pain.

But now I need to have another talk with myself about my eating. I have been over-indulging since New Years. As usual it's the quantity not the quality of food I eat. For the most part, I eat healthy, balanced meals, just a lot of it. This is a slippery slope with me. If I start down this road, it's hard to stop. I spent too many hours hitting the pavement to gain the weight back because I can't control my proportions. Plus, how will I meet my weight loss goal for this year if I continue to be a pig.  And like all runners, I want to get faster. If I'm smaller, I'm faster.

Ok, enough berating myself. It's time to get to working on this.
