I had a good run at lunch time. I ran 4 easy miles and felt great. But that was then, and this is now.
NOW, my stomach is in knots. Mild cramping that leaves me wanting to crawl into a ball in the corner of my office and try to hide from it. I’ve got gas, and when I decide that it might be safe to release a bit of it, someone walks past my office. I fear that they will walk in and discover my less than lady-like activity.
Yes, my stomach is about to blow up. There will be no sucking it in right now. I am doing all that I can to push my belly out over my waistband to bring some needed relief. I can really push it out far (so I look about 5 months pregnant). But, that is just sad.
I’ve been on the Jenny Craig (JC) plan for 10 weeks now! Yes, that would be *me* who has been eating the reduced calories, but *my husband* has actually been losing the weight. Go figure.
Speaking of my belly, on Sunday I met Katie (my new JC consultant). I liked her right off. She’s a young student majoring in nutrition. Although she didn’t know how long a marathon was, she didn’t say “AW” once.
Katie was concerned about my lack of weight loss these past few weeks and asked for the amount of calories that I burned in a typical 4, 7, and 14 mile run. She said that she would contact the corporate office to determine the best plan for me.
Katie was very thorough in her work. We discussed my current diet and physical activity. She listened and seemed to have an appreciation for my training plan. She seemed to have some level of comprehension of a 10 mile run, at least in terms of calories burned.
I discovered that I wasn’t eating all of the additional foods required for some of my favorite Jenny meals. Katie really took the time with me, and her customer service was huge. I actually felt like I was there for a reason besides just picking up my food. I’m hopeful enough to stick it out on this diet at least for a little longer.
