I have not been getting along with sippy cups lately. We've been having our differences and I think it is time they made their exit from our lives. Since I am no longer on speaking terms with them, it seems that my blog title needs to make a change as well. So out with "Sweat and Sippy Cups" and in with "Will Race for Carbs."
Why did I pick this title? Well really I think I like racing so much because of the guilt free carbo loading you get to do before hand. I am a (kinda unsuccessful) recovering carb addict and before races is usually the only time I let myself eat lots of carbs (without remorse). I don't think any food should be "off limits" but I also think you shouldn't only eat one food group (which is what I would do if I could!). So since my Junior year of college the only times I let loose have been pregnancy and pre-race (um, no wonder I sign up for everything!).
Here is some evidence of what happens to me when I don't restrict myself. You are looking at me 9 months pregnant. That is 7 pounds of baby and none of your business pounds of bagels and pasta.
So this morning I enjoyed a wonderful bagel and just told myself that it was part of training (a totally yummy part). Tonight I am thinking spaghetti. Ah, I love racing!!
