The Bad : I'm 6 lbs up from the week before spring break, and 9 lbs from my goal weight. I've been eating junk food all week. Partly because i felt sorry for myself after my disastrous long run on Sunday. And it was generally a stressful week, which meant i do what i usually do when stressed--eat! I need to get back on track with eating healthy, since happy hour isn't helping my bank account either.

The Okay : I talked to my friend who is a physical therapist and she said my post run knee pain is most likely due to an IT band problem, that I need a foam roller, and to roll it out for as long as possible every day (treat and prevent). I've been dreading buying a foam roller for a long time because I've heard how much it hurts and figured my Stick was good enough. But I decided to stop wallowing, and start foam rolling. I went to Fit Right NW and got a foam roller. I've been foam rolling at least once a day, sometimes twice. It hurts and sometimes I whimper pathetically.
My latest obsessions :
- My foam roller. The one good thing about it is it's kind of fun to whack people with it. It doesn't hurt.
- Beading. Went to the craft store and was enamored with the beads. I made myself two necklaces. A little bit Flintstones-y but i like them and have gotten quite a few compliments :) Well and, a student said "Miss Marilyn, your necklace is so shiny! Are those rocks?"
- An adorable handmade wallet that I bought. I added a snap. Its so cute!
- The new Urban Decay Pocket Rocket in Max. It wasn't out on the shelves yet, but my favorite makeup artist managed to bring one out for me to buy. Perfect shade/man to get me ready for summer.
