I feel so "off" today.
But, I did weigh in today at 170.6.
Maybe that is why I am so off today.
Like I got up late than got pensive.. which probably did not help.. but all day today I seemed to want to snack.. even through I am not hungry.
You know what that means?
I am freaking out about being in 160-ville. And, maybe be one step closer to my goal weight. If I stayed at my goal weight, 160-ville would be my last -ville I would be in.
Than, what do I do?
For the last two years, I have been so focused on the scale, and reaching my weight goal. Now that I am nearly here.. now what? I guess I will have to focus on my Half Marathon training a little more... or even toning a bit more.
Anyhow, I feel like I just needed to say it. I'm nervous, and scared about reaching my BIG weight loss goal.

This morning I started my day with a counseling appointment. While there, I said I was content in which she was like, "Yes, you said that last week." But, that's the thing. I really am. This feeling is such a feeling of, "Ahh, this is nice." Sure, things could be going better.. but, boy, they could be going worse. What a nice feeling!
I always feel a bit anxious after my counseling meetings. It probably is because she challenges my thoughts. So, after my class I decided to . When I first got up this morning, I wasn't going to run. I slept hard last night and thought maybe I should just relax today. Anyhow, the was amazing. I did 2 miles in 30 minutes. I feel that was pretty darn good for the first week of working out again. I was pretty happy about it. I even got my pace up around 12:00 for a minute or so. On the TM, I have noticed that I run at a pace under 14:00 which I, also, feel pretty good about.
Than, I was going to study before a quiz I had to do... but I realized I was raving hungry. Did you know you need carbs to think? So, I decided to go home.. and eat. You would think I was eating cheesecake or something by all the sounds I was making! I had cantaloupe for dessert.. YUM!
The endorphin high killer was my quiz I took. That class stresses me out more than any other class I have. Maybe it is the fact that the professor blew off our meeting when I wanted to discuss my grade. So unprofessional! I really need to let that go. Or maybe it was the fact that everyone is like.. Oh, it will be so easy. Anyhow, I got it done. I don't think I did great... but it is done and behind me.
Than, off to catch up on emails... maybe eventually clean my car... (it is beautiful out) and than off to work!

Sometimes you just have those days where it is a day!
I am FINALLY feeling better and having TONS of energy after being sick all month! I am thinking Prednisone is winning the battle against my hives and my sinus infection. YES!!! This may mean I can start to work out again... I know, I know... take it easy.
I am keeping steady (so far) at 171ish even on Prednisone. Keeping my fingers crossed for the next 8 days... that I won't gain too much weight as you tend to do this with medicine from increased appetite and water retention.
Today a YMCA member and I started to chat at work and I mentioned my weight loss. He looked me up and down... like trying to picture it! I love it when people do that! And, I love it even more when they are trying to discretly look me up and down. In addition to that, he told me that he would have put me at 130. I wish! Hehe!
In a few days, it will be March. No big surprise there, right?! So, I thought I would turn the calendar to the next month than it fell down. Well, anyways, I write my weight every week on the calendar and I started looking back to the very beginning of it. My calendar starts in July. I weighed 201. Hello, that's 30 pounds! Every week I aim for ONE pound a week. Apparently, it has paid off! So, if you are reading this and you feel disappointed that you loss only ONE pound this week, don't... it adds up and before you know it, you will have loss a chunk of weight!
Yesterday, a friend of mine that help start my journey called me to see if I would have the time to help someone that was where I was. I will make time! Seriously, I can pay it forward and it will be good practice for me. More and more, I feel I have the skills to be a personal trainer.
So, after a month of alot of I am ready to say to February and March with open arms!
In fact, I didn't even get a chance to even work on my Febraury goals. For March, I hope to just work out consistent, start 1/2 Marathon training and complete a monthly Couch Potato Triathlon.
