Well, Cry Me a River

I must apologize in advance for this whiny post, yet I feel I must write it anyway. Since this is my blog and all.

I realize I do not have ANYTHING to complain or whine about when I step outside of my silly head. But. Still. I am disappointed with my choices lately. I only ran once this past week. Once! I am sure this fact is contributing to my overall blahesque mood. I have not been using my time wisely either. I spent way, way too long yesterday on the computer working on my first Blurb book. Where did the time go? Seriously shameful. There are things I need to do, things I should do, but I am not doing them. Then there is the whole WW thing. Somewhere around Thursday I stopped tracking my points. Two words: emotional eating. This will NOT bode well for the meeting tomorrow morning.

Okay, my silly little self-pity list could go on. And on. How can I type a raspberry sound? Well, use your imagination.

But I'll stop.

Today is a new day. I'll try to do better.


  1. I felt like I was reading my *own* thoughts! Thanks for sharing...

  2. Holly, we have these blasted awful days/weeks to kick us in the bottoms, and light the fire behind us to get us motivated and moving forward. Two steps forward, one step back, but the result is you ARE moving forward!

  3. I think it's good to document the whiny days both for yourself and for others. We ALL have them and take comfort in knowing we're not alone, plus it helps others know what's going on may even inspire a good mail outreach of some kind. One never knows.

    I am afraid of the time that will be consumed when I finally decided to turn my blog into a book, yikes!

    One bad week at WW is just a small set back, next week will be better. You can do hard things...you're a marathon runner for Pete's Sake!

  4. chin up, Holly.....as my grandmother used to say, "this too shall pass"....
    you have to fall off to prove to yourself you can get back up and jump on again!
    btw.....you will LOVE your blurb book, so that is worth the work/time for it :)

  5. I am coming out of my whiny stage, but I think I've been in mine for the last year! So feel good that yours is only on a few days! Sorry you haven't been running, you will - it seems like it's in your blood! You are so dedicated to it and really have inspired me to get my feet going. I've been running for two weeks now and love it. You are so awesome and we all deserve self-pity days!

  6. Your 'blahesque' mood describes how I've been feeling lately to a tee! I soooo am an emotional eater (and non-runner!). Hang in there girl!

  7. Oh holly! I am having the same kind of WW week- sorry to say. I was doing so good too-
    There must be something in the stars messin with this week?

  8. Hang in there. We all know how you feel!

  9. It's been a full moon I tell you...everyone and their mother had the blahs last week. Lucky for me my pity party was only on Wednesday.

    I was able to get out only twice last week for my newfound form of exercise...which by the way is coming along. I took your advice and am now saying that I cannot stop running until I reach so and so...or I can only walk until I reach such and such. I was able to run further by doing this. Thanks for all of the great running hints you posted recently, they've helped me for sure.

  10. Yep--we should just dub it "Whiny Week" 'cause I had one too! Hope you're doing better now...

  11. We ALL UNDERSTAND!!!! I love your post and I must say everytime I look at your picture I think - she is a beautful looking woman, you are really really pretty. As for the WW thing, I cant understand why you are going????? You look perfect to me!!!
    As for the emotionaly eating - yep WE ALL UNDERSTAND.
    Have a great week.....xx

  12. Emotional eating, bleh! Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get a handle on it. I want to work on a blurb book, too, but I'm sure it will be all-consuming...

  13. Hi, my name is Rachel. I just stumbled upon your blog today. We're a lot alike! I'm training for my first half-marathon, been in WW for 3 years, and I actually have a pink flamingo in my front yard even though I live in western NY. ;) I can totally relate to this whiny mood, as I've had some knee achiness and haven't been able to run as much as I would like to. But, this too shall pass. Good luck with your marathon!!


I'd love to hear what you have to say. I try to reply to comments and answer questions within each post so be sure to check back from time to time. Thanks for visiting!
