This plateau can eat my ass

No fancy scale picture for you this week. I gained a pound and I'm rather pissed about it. Obviously, I need to change things up since I have been the same weight for two weeks now. I have been consistent with running, 4-5 times per week, but I need to start more strength training. My restart of Jillian's 30DS lasted about a week before I quit again. However, Megan and Leigh Ann have posted awesome videos of some of the workouts they do so I'm going to try and keep up with them. Plus, I just read what Melanie does to workout and that girl can kick some ass.

I have strayed from Paleo eating lately, but I have not gone crazy eating sugar and white bread. It has been things like oatmeal and brown rice, so I don't feel too bad about it. The worst thing I've eaten has been two slices of Pizza Hut pizza that someone brought into a meeting on Monday. Obviously, I can't turn down free pizza. Plus, it was supreme so it had veggies and thin crust. Last night I didn't really feel like cooking (which really isn't different from any other night) so I heated up some leftover chili that we had in the freezer. I even cut up an avocado to mix in and it was good. Unfortunately, I did not feel good after eating it and had a major tummy ache.

Warning: TMI coming. Prepare yourself.
Most people after eating chili would just go to the bathroom and "get rid of it". Not me, though. I swear I have the worst digestive system ever. I can go for 2-3 days without a BM. (You were warned). Last night, I sat on the toilet for so long that my legs went to sleep. It is so frustrating to know that you need to go to the bathroom and then you get there and nothing happens. I just finished re-reading the 7th Harry Potter book on the toilet. (Don't judge). I'm thinking about doing one of those colon cleanses. That sounds like a fun weekend project, especially after Thanksgiving. Nothing like cleaning three pounds of shit from your bowels.

Moving on... being the best girlfriend ever, I let Jason listen to his new Between the Buried and Me cd on the way to work this morning. In case you aren't familiar, this band is considered Progressive Metal. Jason could explain all the nuances of the different types of metal, but I'll spare you. This cd was not too bad. They still had some of the screaming lyrics that I really don't care for, but they also had some clean lyrics mixed in. Jason still thinks that he is going to win me over to become a metal fan, but I just don't see it happening.

We are driving down to Joplin tonight to prepare for Thanksgiving at Jason's mom's house. Plus, we will be running in the Joplin Turkey Trot 5K tomorrow morning! I'm excited for my second 5K and very happy that Jason will be running it with me. My new REI compression pants came in the mail yesterday and they look and feel awesome on. I figure that I should at least look good while doing this thing, right?

I'll leave you with my outfit of the day. I feel like I look pretty good in this despite being super bloated.
Those bathroom pics just never get old.
