Run: Did my 5 mile Galloway group run this morning starting at 6am. It felt good and I really wanted to keep running, but I know I'm not ready and could risk injury. I'll be content to build up slowly. I can hardly wait to break my personal distance record of 9 miles. According to our schedule it will be over a month. Will try to be patient.
Car: A big change in my life today. I no longer have a car of my own, I now share what used to be my hubby's car. It will be an adjustment. I believe it will work and if it doesn't, with some reshuffling and giving up some other things, I will get another car of my own. I will not let it keep me from living healthy, getting to the gym at least 3 times a week, and making my group runs.
Bike: There is a Weight Watchers' group bike ride tomorrow near my home at 8am. I'm planning to make it if I can get the tires properly inflated. Don't need a car; I can ride to the starting point with no problem.
Progress: At home my weight has gone down a couple pounds and I've been feeling thinner. But today I weighed the same at WW as I did last week, about 1.6 pounds over what I want my maximum weight to be. For once, I really was not disappointed. I have finally internalized that when I am following my food plan and sticking to the good eating habits I have selected and spelled out, that is far more important than what the scale says. The scale will catch up. (I may have over-hydrated after my run.)
