My next Race and more Answers

since the Disney Marathon I have been itching to plan my next race. I’m registered for the surf City Half, but that’s going to be more for fun since I’m still recuperating from the full.

Then, I got an email for a discount code for the Suntrust national Marathon and half March 20th. It must be a sign, so I’m going to go for it!

My lovely wife in the Pysch Ward: A Memoir – book Review
My lovely wife in the Pysch Ward : A Memoir
by mark Lukach

Audio book review of the best selling memoir released 2017.

Is it a good listen?
I’m sharing a quick review of the book available on Audible.

From Amazon:

A heart-wrenching yet hopeful memoir of a young marriage that is redefined by mental illness and affirms the power of love.

Mark and Giulia’s life together began as a fairy-tale romance. They fell in love at eighteen, got married at twenty-four, and started their dream life in San Francisco soon after. but when Giulia was twenty-seven, she suffered a frightening and unexpected psychotic break that landed her in the psych ward for nearly a month. someday she was dynamic and well adjusted; the next, she was delusional and suicidal, convinced that her loved ones were not safe.

What book or podcast are you listening to now??

What should I listen to next?!

Marathon training Day 1


I’ll be doing the half marathon since my knee is still hurting and I really don’t want to stress about missing long runs because of the weather. I understand that many of you run long runs in the northeast, but it truly makes me miserable and I don’t want to put myself through that again.

The race is 50 Days away and I’ll be writing my training program for that tonight! Izgatott vagyok!!!

I had an appointment at 1pm so I ate a quick lunch before I left – a veggie burger wrap and veggie crisps with ketchup.

While I was out I got an iced coffee from DD. someone has a problem.

When I got back around 3:30pm I had yogurt and granola. I also added more cereal and milk to this cup when there was room.

More answers to your questions:

Question: I was wondering about your diet history – did you ever try any “fad” diets in the past, or have you always been so well balanced?

Monica: After high school when I first wanted to lose weight, I did Slimfast and lost some weight. That’s when I started a long, abusive relationship with fad diets and socially acceptable diets too. I did Cabbage Soup, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, South Beach, Calorie Counting and more…

After years of restricting my food and then binging because I was starving I took myself to therapy and have been working on a healthy, balanced life ever since. I am still a work in progress though ?

Question: Is your brother single? I don’t want to date him. I just think he’s super attractive.

Monica: Ha! There is a big possibility that this is a joke from one of his friends, but if it’s not… he has a girlfriend.

Question: You said you and Ben didn’t live together before you got married – is that for religious reasons or something else? (I didn’t live with my husband before we got married either)

Monica: **This is just my opinion and I do not judge anyone for living their life they way they choose.**

I made the decision before even meeting Ben that I would not live with someone unless we were at least engaged with a set wedding date. Ben and I did not live together while engaged because I was living with my mom and happy there, so there was no reason for it.

I am not against living together before marriage, but I am not for it either. everyone has to do their own thing, but I don’t think living together before marriage is a way to “test” out if you’re compatible with someone. (I understand financial times are tough and if it’s a financial thing  then you do what you gotta do.) If someone wants to be with me then they have to take the good with the bad.

based on my previous relationships and learning from the relationships of the people around me, I made a decision that I would not be someone’s girlfriend forever nor would I act like someone’s wife without a ring. If you’re not being treated the way you want to be, then walk.

A really great guy once told me if a girl he loved was going to leave him he would lay down in front of her car (meaning he would do anything possible to stop her). If someone’s willing to let you walk, then maybe you should.

**Again, you guys know I am pretty chill and totally don’t judge you for doing your own thing. This is just me.**

Question: What do you listen to on your runs?

Monica: My thoughts. I only recently put songs on my phone so I could listen to them while on the treadmill. I want to start listening to music more, so I’m going to start getting more music. If I was an ipod junkie it would be filled with Beyonce, Shakira, No doubt and Pit Bull!

Question: What would be your dream job?

Monica: I would love to be a travel show host like Samantha Brown. I would rock the shit out of that job. anyone have any connections?

Question: What do you think the best re-usable water bottle is? any recommendations?

Monica: I used to swear by the massive plastic water bottle I got from REI a while back, but it was recently lost ?

Now I am using a set of three bottles I got from Costco. They are great because you can just drink with one hand and don’t have to unscrew the cap or anything. They are also spill-proof. I do highly recommend them.
