Alternative Title – Janathon Days 22, 24 and 25
Well, Tiffany and I made it through 8 miles. It wasn’t the best run, but we did it. At least, I got to catch up with Tiffany for an uninterrupted 2 hours and burned 746 calories in the process.

Sunday I rested and then on Monday I missed my 5:00 a.m. “Me Time”, so I decided to load up Liam and the stroller for a Mom’s Mid-Morning Run at Suncoast Running. Tracey (the owner), Amy (a new running friend) and I ran 3 miles with a screaming baby in tow, but at least I got my miles in that day. He eventually fell asleep.

This morning I found the energy for 4 miles at 5:00 a.m. and I’m so glad I did because the forecast called for severe thunderstorms for most of the day. But I think I had a little too much energy this morning, because my knee has been bothering me all day. Since I volunteered to chaperone my daughter’s field trip, I had planned Wednesday to be a rest day. Now, I’m glad I did so I could give my knee a rest. I hope it’s nothing too serious and that I just need new shoes.

On my day of rest on Sunday, I decided to bite the bullet and register for the Gasparilla Half Marathon. So, naturally my knee would start bothering me afterwards! UGH!
As for my weight loss, I did really well this week despite eating out twice. My sister and I enjoyed lunch at Moon Under Water and I ate the tuna sashimi, seaweed salad and a side of edamame. YUM! As much as I could have killed for a glass of wine, I only drank water.
Then, after the Gasparilla Parade (Pics will be posted tomorrow for Not-So-Wordless Wednesday, so stay tuned!), my family and I ate at Bella’s Italian Cafe. DOUBLE YUM! Again, no wine and I only ate a small piece of bread, a small portion of Ceasar salad and I only ate half of my Lasagna Con Pollo. Funny thing, after weeks of portion control, I could only eat half of my dinner and I couldn’t even stomach the thought of dessert. I was FULL and that rarely ever happens!
Truthfully, I think another dry week caused me to get the DTs and that is what helped me lose another 4 pounds for a grand total of …WAIT FOR IT…10 POUNDS!
You would think weighing less would be less of a burden to my knees. Not so much.
