A New Blog Name?

I have been feeling like a fraud lately. My new blog name should be "Wants to run so she can eat chocolate, but she can't because her ass is getting too big even though she runs five days/week" I think that would be too long probably. I have started eating more reasonably lately, this always happens when school starts and I don't have the time to just eat whatever I want whenever I want. I stopped taking chocolate breaks everyday at work a couple of years ago, because the sugar dives would make me too tired to run around after all those wild preschoolers. So even though I wish the running and swimming I am doing would allow me to eat whatever amount of chocolate I want, I sadly no longer can. I eat small amounts of chocolate during the week and that works out for me, because I can't cut it out of my life completely. That would be like going blind or something!

Coed softball starts today, but I feel like an afterthought because the woman that runs the team just called me this morning to tell me the game time. I am not going to go today because the start is 10:15 and I have to run and go food shopping. Also when I never heard from last year's coach, I asked another friend if I could play on her team, yikes, what do I do now? On both teams I would be the suckiest player, but at least on the team from last year, they know what their getting and I think the sort of want me to play?! Running is so much less complicated! Just go out there and run, the only person you fail is yourself when you strike out or are afraid to slide or afraid of the 200lb guy sliding into home that your team expects you to try to tag!

When you run, you never fail :-) I couple of years ago, I thought I would run so I could eat what I wanted to as well. It didn't work for me either.

Whichever team you play for is a personal decision. The teams should respect you for that....

I am in the same boat with the damn eating. Sugar is my ENEMY!!

lol @ the name change idea. you might end up getting a lot of hits - from people searching for "big ass"...

anyway... it was nice to meet you too at NH, albeit very briefly.

Unthinkable!

Running is the only team sport I could ever join. :)

if it risks the sanity i say keep the chocolate breaks. besides i thought you looked slim in those compression shorts the other day!! ;) so something is working!

If you stop eating chocolate, you will die. I read that somewhere and I believe it - that is why I eat some every single day. ;-)

I'm with Wes - when you run, you might have unmet expectations, but you never fail!

Hmmm, this makes me think about what I would eat if I could eat whatever I want. Not good. I won't go there.

...I just noticed Danny winking at me...that's freaky!

Just run on chocolate - better than running on empty :).
