Checking in for day 2. I'm better prepared today, so I'm not ready to hurt anyone. Breakfast was 3coffee cups of coffee and an oatmeal with splenda.

I was able to find someone to split a room with, but then had things decided for me as far as whether I'd be running/walking. Sadly, I will not be participating. I'm still on the fence about driving up there to be a spectator.

Long story short, what I thought was dehydration on marathon weekend was actually a combination of dehydration and a potential heart problem. My symptoms still aren't gone almost two weeks after running the race, and sometimes it borders on the comical (being completely disoriented out of nowhere, not knowing what I was doing and walking away from cooking dinner to go upstairs and take a shower). The doc says if it turns out to be atrial fibirllation and not just some weird one-time coincidence, it could either regulate itself or I'll have to be on meds/possibly surgery. I'm in the process of scheduling appointments and such to try and narrow this down.

I think the hardest part of all this is that I have to remain stress-free. I can't exercise. I have to limit beer intake. I have to watch out for tingling in my limbs and garbled speech. I've never experienced this before so I'm confident that whatever it is, it's been caught early and I'll be able to fix the problem. It's just disappointing that my life is put on hold-- even if it's for a good reason and only for a few months.

If I can get someone to drive up with me from WPB, I'll likely go as a spectator. If not, I think the 2-hr drive might be a bit more than I would want to do alone. You know, just in case I think it's a good time to stop and take a shower or something.

I know you have been making good progress with your running Karen, but STOP IT! Really. Stretch, advil, get rid of that inflammation. Running is only going to aggrevate it, and darn it sister you have a trip to Disney in a week!!!

I'm sorry that you won't be able to make it to the Princess!

I also wanted to say, that my father has a-fib. If that's what it turns out to be, I'll gladly share his story with you if you want. Just know that there are a number of "types", and different treatment options depending upon your particular case.

Today is Thursday. Which means weigh in day for me. And the results are:

down .8

Yes, thats ZERO point eight. <sigh> Just under a pound. The scale is ever so slowly inching downward. I don't WANT "inching". I want FREEFALL

I know, I know, Lisa. I know.


Oh. and I made brownies tonight. Yummy, chocolatey deliciousness in a pan. Yep. That's why I'm hiding in the other room Honestly, my ears hear the calling of chocolate from miles away. I think I need to get me one of those wristbands with "WWEE" on it. You know - "what would Erin Eat"

Oh did I mention that she's pregnant? Erin I mean. Great. The little fireball is multiplying Ah well, it will only be a couple of months before I can out-run her

Nancy - I hope Erin isn't too brutal during pregnancy mood swings and training sessions! I must find a brownie recipe that I can have. Ummm, chocolate!

I just love hearing all of the pet stories! Big time critter lover! I do miss having farm animals (did I ever share that we once had a bull named Prince?). One of these days I will have more animals, but for now I have a chihuahua with little dog syndrome. My dog is on my baby cousin's must catch list (he is 5 months old and like a nephew to me).

Karen - I hope your PF is better before you head to the world.

Rhianna - I hope the heart issue is mild. That can be scary. Maybe next year for the Princess visit.

And now I better post my tidbits before Lisa makes it to Indiana to put me in my place.

adsrtw - aka Amiee & EE. Tinker Belle will always be my favorite (she was also my favorite pony too).

Age: 36
Height: 5'-4" - short end of the genetics stick. My dad was a foot+ taller than me and mom is 5'-8"
Weight: 204
Personal Stats: Mom to two wonderful kids who love meeting my friends, full time call center supervisor, last semester as an undergrad, oh and I have an online business simply because I need something else to do.
Live in: Evansville, IN - midway between Louisville & St. Louis
Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom
But I am a sucker for: Star Tours!!
Passions: Travel, fundraising
Important to know: It's better to start something and struggle than to sit back and wonder 'what if I...'
Weight loss plan and goals: Following low bad carb, higher veggies and protein. I tend to obsess over the scale, so I am going to weigh every other week this time

Thanks guys! It's funny, I think I'm more stressed out by having to rest and not exercise than by potentially having a-fib. I was just getting into a great groove! How on earth will I go back to hitting the gym at 5am now that I'm getting used to sleeping in until 7?

I really do think it's due to a lot of stress that I've been under between work, family, and moving across country with three weeks notice for a new job. The dehydration at the race probably just kicked it into overdrive. I had my one day pity party, but I'm hopeful that I'll be back and running in a month or so... if I haven't decided to totally go Jabba on everyone by then

Down 1.2.

Beyond pleased. Why? Major changes beyond that. You know the feeling you have during a workout where you actually feel the change. The best. Beyond clothes - beyond scale.

And I'm feeling strangely at peace. And sort of keep waiting and waiting for that to change. Yes ridiculous thought process. There will be gains and mental setbacks - a given but I really feel something has changed mentally. The best.

I have to go. Took me ages to get on here. Will be back later tonight/tomorrow - have to catch up with everyone.

MKKelly!!!!! Goal? Get your goal butt over here.

Rhianna - wow - frustrating. But I have to say I laughed loudly at the "go Jabba".

And Amiee. I was so excited to have you back I missed that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And usually I'm bang on. Smiling.

I want a free fall too, but I know that is harder to sustain. I want to stop the roller coaster.

Discovered a fit frappe at a local bakery - 16oz 130 cals 20g protein 3.5 fat and under 1g sugar. They gave me the container so I could track this am. Lots of vitamins too.

EE - good heavens! How do they get so much protein in there? How was it? From time to time I attempt to get a bump of protein after my morning runs. I've made Greek yogurt smoothies, but it's still only 14g.

Lisa - yea change! I know exactly what you mean. Feeling the change trumps the scale every time. Happy for you.

I need to be reined in. I've gained, eh, six pounds since the marathon. I've gotten back on the treadmill and that helps suppress my appetite. Looking at myfitnesspall, it's about 4 pounds over where I was a year ago. That makes me smile. BIG smile.

This. I'm struggling at the minute with the work/having a life balance. Its just so busy at work, everyone is feeling the pressure - blah.
