has been up(down?)graded to just Evil Scale :)
I have consistently been at 164 all week and this morning my scale said 163- I had to do a double take!
I skipped my run on Tuesday (right calf/shin still hurting) and then didn't get in a real workout on Wednesday- but I did spend an hour working in the storage room at the church I am working on cleaning out...not easy work!
Thursday I made myself go to the Y and get in a run...had little dude with me and he went in the HUB. I had a pretty good run and have upped my pace a bit- got in 2.5 miles in 35mins (was at 2.25 miles)
Chase was upset about not getting to play the Wii game he wanted in the HUB...so i told him we could go back on Friday...so we did. I got in a quick 30min circuit in the personal fitness room- first time I've done any kind of strength training in forever...felt good!
While we were there Friday night we registered for breakfast with Santa this morning...we were a little slow moving this morning and got there about 925ish (started at 9) but- as I was turning into the Y I heard a loud "ka-thunk" come from the right side of my car and Chase said he saw something black & round rolling across the street...*sighs*
got the car parked and got Chase settled in with breakfast then called my little brother's best friend (who is a mechanic- like my brother but nicer to me lol) He said he would come take a look at it...so while I waited for him (knew it would be about a half hour or so) I took Chase to the HUB and I got in my run- another 2.5miles in 35mins...so my pace has definitely gotten faster! J got there just as I was finishing up so I took him my keys so he could check it out then I went to shower...
turns out it the harmonic balancer broke. again. (just had this fixed earlier this year by my step dad with a junk yard part) J said there was one in stock at the parts store for $88 and he could fix it in about an hour...so I attempted to drive my car on what was left of the battery power...got almost all the way there when it died on me...so J jumped out of his truck and hooked up the chains and towed me the rest of the way there...
On the way there I called my aunt and asked her if she would take me out to the consignment shop as I had stuff in my trunk to take out there- and they stop taking stuff at 1pm on Saturdays...so she came & got me to go out there while J fixed the car...
I took a bunch of my work clothes- size 14/16- that have been falling off of me...they took all but 2 things (one a pair of capris I can bring back in the spring) I also did some shopping while I was there- because I had to replace my work clothes of course LOL There was nothing in the size 14 I liked so I looked in the 12s...not sure they would fit...but I grabbed a few pairs to try on...and they all fit! with room to spare!!
Do you have ANY idea the last time I wore a size 12?!?
ROFL. I am so flippin excited!
of course it kinda sucks...I have hundreds of dollars worth of clothes that no longer fit that I am slowly getting rid of and replacing...and while it's fun...I am sad to see some of my awesome clothes go (but not the extra weight!)
And now tonight- just staying in (and warm!) with little dude...relaxing & snuggling :) Tomorrow we are doing some shopping with my sister in law and I hope to make it back to the Y to do another circuit- focusing on my arms.
And my next 5K is next Saturday- the Reindeer Run
*note: decided to skip the 5k I had planned for tomorrow due to 1. needing to rest my leg and not push it and 2. the fricken cold weather! snow and all that ickyness. yuck.
So now I just gotta make it through this next week of work...and then the following Monday & Tuesday...then I am off work until Jan 3rd! w00t!
