Oops / 14 miler

Yup, I gained 4 pounds this week. I was expecting a gain from all the fast food binges, but 4 pounds?! Oh well. I feel like this intuitive eating thing will lead me down a better road. The weight will normalize where it's meant to be. Maybe I'm not meant to be 150 pounds; perhaps 160 is my natural weight. As I go through the process of making peace with food and my body, the weight will work itself out.

In other news, I ran 14 miles this morning. That's the farthest I've ever gone. The course was mostly on hilly country roads. The hills were intense. My hips, butt, legs, knees, and feet are on fire. I'm in a lot of pain, but I'm also elated and exhilarated for my accomplishment. I'm pretty damn proud of myself, I must say. The people I run with are amazing, and they kept me going when I wanted to stop.

14 miles!! You'd have to pick me up off the ground ;) Way to go girl!!
And i wouldn't be a bit surprised if your weight even's out a bit once you've been eating intuitively for awhile. Don't worry about the scale ;)

14 miles is awesome! I worked on "breaking in" my running shoes while we were camping. Now maybe I can at least walk around the lake without limping.
