After losing my ID card last week, I couldn't go to the gym on Friday. I went and got a replacement today, and then hit the gym. Weighed in as usual and -- hold the phone, 141?! I was at 138 last week! I started at 143 a month ago! I don't understand how I can possibly be back up to 141.
So I was upset for a while. It was demoralizing to see myself starting through the 130s and suddenly be right back almost to square one.
But I completely rocked out on W5D1 of Couch to 5K -- three 5-minute runs, no problem at all. I felt great after that, and feel very confident about the 8-minute runs coming up on Wednesday.
So I don't know what is up with the scale number. But my increasing stamina proves that my work is getting me somewhere. I will just keep at it, and the scale will follow along when it wants to.
