|This is the back of the outfit|
After I tried the yellow stuff on, I decided to go to our local Dunham's and see what I could find there. They actually had the slash capris in stock! They had the orange color and the gray color. They had one size small left of the orange, so I bought them. I found a matching shirt, and got that too. I will just return the yellow items online.
When I got home and tried them on, the capris felt a little loose going on. I looked at the tag, and they said medium--they were on the wrong fucking hanger at the store. I could probably get by with them, but I don't want to have to keep tugging on the back of them, pulling them up if they droop. So tomorrow I will go back to Dunham's to return them. If they have the gray ones in my size, I might get those. I really do like them! I just wanted to buy a complete outfit.
Now I'm clueless as to what I'll wear for the marathon. I might just wear my go-to outfit of my black UA capris and top, and throw a sparkle skirt over it. Or maybe I'll dig out that purple shirt I made with my name on the front, and have never worn.
I have NEVER been "that girl", who frets over what to wear--particularly when I run! I'm always mismatched, wearing whatever is most comfortable. But for my first and only marathon, I wanted to have a cute outfit for pictures. I just shouldn't have waited until the last two weeks to figure it out.
(Speaking of Under Armour, the UA giveaway for the $500 gift card ends on the 21st, so if you haven't yet entered, you can do so on this post.)
I've had a bad couple of days with my eating. I've been feeling stressed out and a little depressed, and I've used food to make me feel better. I'm glad that I at least recognize that, and I'm not making excuses. It's just hard to stop! I've been eating two large bowls of cereal as a snack. I never used to be a cereal person when I was overweight; but now, I could go through an entire box of cereal in one day. I don't want it to turn into one of the things I can't keep in the house, so I really need to watch it.
I'm a little nervous about going to Cleveland--not just for the marathon, but because of the food. I always gain weight on trips (even 10 pounds in a weekend), and I don't want that to have a big effect on my race performance. My plan is to eat intuitively, focusing on carbs, with as little grease as possible. Not much fiber, either. I don't want any tummy issues on race day! We have reservations at Buca di Beppo for Saturday night--so I will carb load, but not too much. The only good thing about being so nervous is that I probably won't have much of an appetite.
We're coming home immediately after the race on Sunday, which is probably for the best. I'm not expecting to feel like walking around the city doing touristy stuff! ;) Jerry and I have been to Cleveland a few times, and we really liked it. That's why I was excited to do the Cleveland marathon. Gosh, I can't wait until Monday! ;)
