A Marble Under 188

Ok, I have been doing so well on the down and distance.

I've lost a little bit every week, except that one week where I held even. This week I was a little nervous, even though I had my highest mileage running since my 49 miles in 3 days (which almost put me in the hospital, 10 % a week increase, BullShmitz, how about 300%? Er, no!) and my diet has been very good, still, I was a little worried because last night after my awesome Red Molly Show (thank you Jim, front row center! If these chicks burp, I'll know their eating habits, yeah, I was close) I had a little midnight snack (well, 9:40 PM, but that's midnight to me!)

I couldn't help it, you know they say to get that cholesterol down, you should have one - two drinks a day, and here it was past 9 PM and I hadn't imbibed. So I pour myself a nice glass of red wine (now why can't I remember to take my baby aspirin or fish oil tabs daily, that reduces cholesterol too?) and I didn't want to drink alone, that just seems wrong, so I made popcorn to go with the wine.

I was asleep seconds after polishing off the last kernel of corn.

Don't know how I did it, but I still weighed in at 187 this morning. 1.5 pounds down from last week. It must have been the marble sized chunk of earwax that tumbled out of my head during class yesterday. This was no commie duck either, it was an elephant egg (marble terms, check out the wiki). Usually, you can just feel that earwax shift and you never find the evidence, but that was not the case here. I feel like if there was still a local candle maker I could be living on Easy Street right now. Driving an Escalade and eating tofu tartar!

187 and heading south, oh yeah!

Well good job on the weight, if you ate my healthy chips you might get in good shape, like me.

As for Marbles, I don't have time, I'm too busy running marathons, ultras, signing books and cashing checks to play games. Heck I quit schoool because I didn't like recess!

Damn, Ange, you've lost your marbles all right. I'd done okay. Got down to 228; down about six. Ran a little. Ate a lot. Oh, well.
