Just a quick post before I go to bed tonight.  Today was my second day training and it was wonderful.  I followed my handy iPhone marathon trainer and did alternating runs and walks on the treadmill.  Pro - it is SO much easier than road training.  Con - my handy program that tracks my mileage with GPS doesn't track you when you run in place.  Ahhh, technicalities.

I also found out (after gaining 1.4lbs. in our weekly weigh-in) that I was making the very bad mistake of not eating enough, which I never thought would be an issue.  But since I started reading the labels of what I put into my mouth I am very reticent to put yucky stuff in there (insert oral sex joke here...only I don't remember what that's like).  So, I had to get the handy calorie tracking app on my iPhone and go back to logging the calories of everything I eat, this time so that I can increase the calories!  This caring what you look like stuff is a lot harder than I thought it would be.  Oh for the days of lonely depression where the only thought was how long I could hold it before waking from my mid-day nap to pee.  I kid of course.  I wouldn't trade the feeling I have now for anything!  It's great to feel like a human being again.

Oh yeah, and I don't work for Apple, but seriously, I could do a commercial for them.  This phone does everything!  I think I am in love and I don't know how I lived without it.


  1. How did we ever live before iPhones? : ) Proud of you!

  2. I'm so glad you started a blog! I'm a little Apple-obsessed and I'm seriously considering a Mac.

  3. Do you have to wait until your inconsiderate husband come back from Italy to guilt him into that purchase? Really, I think you have earned that PLUS some.
