#Chewsday Update – And Other Weird, Made-Up Words

What the heck is #Chewsday Black Dog? – you may be asking yourself.  Well, let me tell ya.  Whether you really want to know or not.  So there.



I’ve teamed up with my accountabilibuddies, (yup – somebody made that one up too) over at Princess Prairie Runners and Darlin’ Rae in an effort to keep each other on track with our eating.  We’ve been stalking each other on our blogs, Twitter, and Instagram, and just acting as a support system when the evil junk food minions come a-callin’.

Here.  Have a banana.

Here. Have a banana.

We’ve had a few bad days along the way, but for the most part I think we’ve been able to give our efforts three out of four paws up!  Just knowing I’ll feel guilty if I go for the inevitable extra serving of that blasted tortellini the hubby insists on making every blessed week, (if only it wasn’t so friggin’ yummylicious!), helps keep this dog’s waistline from getting too out of control.  Just think girls, if we keep at it, we’ll end up looking like THIS!

Ok, maybe not.

Ok, maybe not.

I can honestly say I haven’t stepped on a scale for who knows how long, and to be honest, I really don’t care what the number says anyway.  My clothes fit pretty well – aside from a pair or two of pants that I wish fit just a LITTLE bit loser – but I’m living on the pavement and in the gym these days, so I’m good with it.  And we all have races to train for, so none of us will be spending much time sitting around on our dupas stuffing our yaps with crappy food.  I think our unofficial mantra has become, “eat like crap, feel like crap, train like crap.”  Pretty awe-inspiring, ain’t it?

Google awe-inspiring.  This is what you get.

We’d love to have you join us our party train to happy bellies and happy training, so feel free to stalk us on our blogs, Instagram, or Twitter, using the hashtag #Chewsday.  You too can be one of the cool kids!  Maybe we’ll even get shirts made up.



Enjoy the ride.

Do you make better choices when you know someone has your back?

  1. I think the clearest sign of my maturity was when I not only realized that eating 10 chocolate chip cookies made me physically ill but I also stopped eating 10 at a time. There was some lag between those two things happening…

    • Hey, better late than never I say! I may not be a rocket scientist (really, do you know anyone who IS?), but after feeling like an overpumped beach ball after downing an entire bowl of Moose Tracks ice cream every night, I figured perhaps it was time to pull my head out of my ever-increasing dupa and get to work. Now it seems my only overdosing seems to be on pavement. And Game of Thrones. All good!

      • I’ll cut out the snacks but I’ll be damned if I’m giving up Murder, She Wrote.

  2. We need these t-shirts! 🙂

    I think Nicole totally makes a great point though–realizing that 10 cookies isn’t going to make you feel good and actually stopping eating said 10 cookies is a tough connection to make sometimes. I still struggle with it.

    • I rarely deny myself something if I want it, I just watch the portion sizes. I’ve gotten to the point where I CAN be satisfied with 2-3 mini pb cups instead of half the bag, or more importantly, 2 SMALL scoops of Moose Tracks instead of an entire bowl. Even if it IS in a Mickey bowl, lol! 🙂

      • I too am getting better with being satisfied on smaller amounts, but sometimes, oy…Ben and Jerry get the better of me. 🙂

        It’s funny, when I bake my own “junk” I tend to be satisfied with smaller quantities, whereas the cookies and things I buy at the grocery store tend to have me over eating.

  5. Good job on this one baby! I wish I could run with you. Even if it was only a few miles here and there.

  6. Ugh, this is where I need the most help. I can work out forever and ever but eating is my sore spot. I love all things greasy and fast foodish 😦 I will tweet you when I start thinking about a Big Gulp.

  7. It’s hard to feel like I’m doing well with my eating when alot of the girls in my running group are vegan and they never eat crap. So……I just need to find a new group right? Actually, I love these girls, and since I am old, they make allowances for my poor eating habits!

Please let me know what you think!
