Weight watchers tonight but no weigh-in for me!!

another afterTonight I am going to go to weight watchers but I am not going to weigh in.  I feel no need to see or know my weight after an ultra-marathon.  I have as a tradition always gained weight after such events so I am going to spare myself unneeded disappointment.  Even though I have always gained and things always even out later, I still know myself enough to know I will not like to “SEE” the gain.  I really don’t know exactly why I or anyone else would gain after running 40 miles but it is a reality.  Maybe it is swelling and water retention.  Maybe it is just plain stress reaction to the effort.  Who knows!!

After the meeting I of course am going to eat and watch the biggest loser with my sister.  Hopefully if time allows, I will post about my reaction to the final show before the finals in the morning.

Other than that, I am feeling much better muscle wise today.  My soreness will be completely gone by tomorrow and I am hoping that my stomach issues will be done by then too.  My wife says that my stomach always bothers me after ultr-marathons but I don’t recall it myself.  I guess that is why I keep doing them in the first place, I just don’t tend to remember the pain and suffering. HAHAHAHAHA

    Great photo! I’m looking forward to the BL episode tonight.:) Going grocery shopping first so I can have some healthy snacks – I tossed out my popcorn! Glad you’re taking good care of yourself. You set such a good example for the rest of us.

    You are amazing.

    Also, skipping weigh-ins after doing something as fantastic as an ultra marathon is very wise. Bask in the glory!

    I think your superdy long marathons and the subsequent amnesia must be like childbirth…..it’s a gift from God that we forget the pain or we’d never do it again. Thumbs up bro.
