One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Post Event Blah

4 Comments 511 views

It happens every time I run a big event. From 5ks through the marathon, anything I train for and then complete ends with a post-event blah period.

I’m not sure why or the psychology behind it. It just is, and I’m pretty used to it now. I’ve learned to cut myself some slack and roll with it.

I picked back up my food journal, got a little work done, took the kids to the park and relaxed. My body needed it!

Right now I’m on the couch next to Irish and Mr. Dorito Man.


I had one and then thought better of it. Those darn things are so freakin’ addictive. So I hit the fridge, cut some cucumber, topped it with The Laughing Cow and turkey pepperoni.


Compromise, baby. I’m having a snack but not THAT snack. Know what I mean?

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and let you know I’m still alive after this weekend, sore has hell, but alive. :)

Oh! and I finally updated the links above to add my workout history. Sorry, for my random post tonight. I’m distracted by The Following.

    My husband and I are obsessed with The Following. Kevin Bacon is amazing.

    As long as the Doritos bag isn’t red, I can handle it. Lol

    ok, now that you have this much Tough Mudder experience, I really would love to hear some first hand perspective from you….real advice. which training exercises help you the most/least? are there specific strategies you use for certain obstacles? should you focus on training for long distance running (i have run only a 5k before…should i be trained to run a half before i attempt tough mudder?) or, should you train with intervals? i am doing my very first tough mudder in October and i’m so nervous. I’ve done 4 mudruns…but all short 5k distances. I’m nervous about so many things. And i’m scared. HALP!

    Hi there! I just want to say thank you for being so honest about your journey. I love how you don’t sugar coat anything. You are a real person that I can relate to. So thanks!

    How long have you kept a food journal? Does it help you? What do you think the pros/cons are? I have the hardest time keeping one, especially if I constantly have to guess how many calories are in certain meals (I hate not being accurate!)
