Yesterday I ran for the first time in a month! I looked at my Zombies, Run app and my last run was at the end of September. The weather was perfect and I felt a spring in my step so I really enjoyed it. I only ran about 1.75 miles, so not quite the 2 miles that I have on my schedule, but it was still close enough! I think I did a 12 minute/mile, I didn't time myself properly. My headphones crapped out on me too, I put my iPod in between the 2 bras I wear so I was fiddling with the headphone cable...got a lot of weird looks from people! But oh well.

Today I'm going to go again, same distance but now with new headphones!

Yesterday I did a lot of shopping, got myself a brand new coat which was a pretty big deal for me! It's poofy and warm but it's got a waist belt so it doesn't make me look like a marsh mellow. I also got a nice knitted jumper, then did some Christmas shopping. I did my usually "better pick L size" but ended up being an M! Even for the coat, which I usually have trouble with because the zip or buttons are really stretched around my chest, but nope! No problem zipping up my new coat! So happy. I probably could have bought the jumper in an S but it would have been snug and I liked the looser feeling of the M.

Funny story, one time on my way to work a guy started talking to me and asked me stuff like "what are you doing in Japan" "how long have you lived here" then he asked "do you wanna go for lunch?" I panicked and gave him my number with no intention of actually meeting him, a big no no I NOW know but I never really got cornered like that before.

So anyway, yesterday in a completely different place he comes over to me and says "hey beautiful" I was like uhhhhh. He had texted me loads (I never replied) but then gave up so I thought he might say something. But he had no idea who I was!! He had completely forgotten he had met me!! In hindsight I wish I would have just said "please leave me alone" but I guess I'm not ballsy enough to do that! I just played along like we had never met, gave him a fake name (but no number this time) and mentioned that I had a boyfriend. It was so weird though! He said he wanted to "meet a beautiful woman like you" and stay in Japan. I was thinking you're not gonna get a woman by just harassing them in the street!

goldengirl - I know, right?! It's funny because sometimes I see overweight women and I feel like asking "where do you buy your clothes?!" because most of the time they still wear pretty cute clothes!

grapefruit - Sounds like we have similar workout desires! I should fit in Yoga more often, and I like to strength train too. Man, I feel your pain for running indoors! I can't do it personally but better than nothing. I was about to say, are you from the UK? before seeing it in your profile! Oh, Netball, I really hated it in high school! I just wanted to play basketball! Hated standing still with the ball!! LOL about your Piloxing class! What the actually eff?! That sounds embarrassing for HER. Would never have mixed pilates with boxing...

Campana - Yeah, you have to change your lifestyle to see a weight change. It's ok to have sweets once in a while but it won't help you lose weight!

kisskiss - Glad your back is feeling better! I'm rooting for you!

kitkat - Welcome! Please weigh in this week! Or you'll get moved to standby (I move people if I see 2 "-" marks!) since I just go on autopilot!
