Week 8 was the week my mom flew in from Georgia and my grandma drove up from Washington. Needless to say, we ate out a lot.. and I cooked some big meals to feed lots of people. It made it difficult to count calories and my weight didn't budge because of it. I still did all my runs, and ran my fastest 5 mile yet, (with my brother David.. he's faster than me and helped me a lot). But, as KC tells me, counting calories makes the weight come down and running maintains it. Well, it maintained. That sucks because this would have been my week getting down into the 140's. I'm not unfocused though. I'm watching every calorie and hoping to make up for lost ground this week. The runs are more enjoyable now that I can smell flowers outside. I've also been chased by 3 little, white yappy-dogs that I would like to pound into dog food. I also noticed that my average miles per minute are now faster than my starting week's fastest pace. That means little sprints I managed to crank out back then are now slower than my average pace! Awsome! Anyway, this week may have not been my greatest, but I'm back into the groove of things and ready to dazzle you all next week.
