Running perfection but I went nuts with weight loss efforts


Last night I found these dirty little son’s-of-a-guns.  These dang nuts are from the devil I swear.  See how the can says heart healthy.  Well dang, I bet they aren’t good for your heart when you are practically laying down so you can pour them down your throat.  BAAAAA HAH AHA HA!! 🙂  I didn’t really do that but I kept going back to them gosh dangit.  I guess it is better than eating chips and candy but geesh.  Other that driving myself NUTS I did pretty good.  I had a big potato, some wonderful lean beef, avocado, a famous sister shake, and a giant WW fudge bar.  Yummy nummy for my tummy.

Before all the knock down fighting with the nuts, I had the blessed run.  An easy 4 miler was on the menu for yesterday.  I ran relaxed and easy. AHHHHH.  What a refreshing run.  It was running perfection.  I felt like I was effortless gliding along in the sunshine.  I ran along the river in the cool brisk air.  It was amazing.  I think I smiled for the whole first 5 minutes and then on and off.  

I also got some new ear bud head phones yesterday.  Boy did I need these.  I spent the extra money and got some really nice ones that fit into my ear but don’t cause me to have to go to the hospital for ear pain after every run.  I love these new things and I highly recommend them.

    What brand of headphones did you get? Sorry about the nuts driving you nuts. Maybe you shouldn’t buy them. If there not there you won’t go nuts. 🙂

      My wife buys them. She has control and just eats a tiny bit here and there. Powerful woman she is. 🙂 I got V-moda’s- modaphones. Fantastic little creations. I must do a review of them for a post

    I think labeling nuts health foods is false labeling because they are so yummy who eats just 13 per serving? 13 handfuls maybe 😉 I’m glad to read you had an awesome day because I just spent 20 minutes trying unsuccessfully to get my car unstuck in my driveway so now I’m going to take my frustration out with my exercise videos. I don’t think I could handle reading a “poor me” article right now.

      Oh that is a bummer. When we had our recent snow storm, the snow got so deep in my nieghboor hood and the ruts got deep and nobody could leave. I had to walk .5 miles to the main road to get picked up for work. My wife had to stay home from work It was the pits. We both got are cars stuck on a hill that goes into our little private road. We had to leave our cars in someones yard. OOOPS!! 🙂

    100 calorie packs of nuts? Who knew?..lol Not I!! What will they think of next? I have to say I really avoid nuts at all cost because of the fat content and my LACK of will power. It is nice to know they make the 100 calorie packs for peeps like me!! 🙂

    Nuts are so darn tricky. Good for you… to a point. I feel like a nut weighing my nuts on my scale, but that’s the only way I can have them around without going nutty myself and overindulging. It’s nice that you had a refreshing run. I was just excited to run outside today. It’s finally warm, and I’ve been cooped up for far too long!!

      It gets a little crazy when we are cooped up for too long that is for sure. Now that it is warm for you it will be nice. Great comment.

    I bought these pina colada flavored pecans today. I’m pretty sure they’re not WW friendly but they are so good.

      Everything is WW friendly if you count it and you have the points for it. I may never have enough points to have nuts like that around. MMMMM. Sounds scrumptious
