Biggest Loser Winner Month #4 & Weight Gain

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

After my disaster of a run last night ending in a long walk home, ice, and advil… I decided to be stubborn and try to run before my weekly weigh-in for the final week of Biggest Loser. This morning’s run was supposed to be 3.2miles. It ended with me turning around at about 1.5 miles and walking a significant part of the way home with a knot in my shin.

My stupidity and effort was for nothing anyway… because I actually GAINED from last week. It’s the first time in four months that has happened. I’m not super upset with the gain. It’s only 0.8lbs. I can deal with it this coming week. I’m more upset because I was set to hit 40lbs officially down today (I had 1.2lbs to lose to do it). Now I’m 2lbs away and what I want to do is go full force into next week, get in some double workout days and longer runs… but my shins need a serious break. I’m thinking a couple extra yoga days might be beneficial and I’ll try to hit the gym instead of running on the road for a couple days. Hopefully I feel better for my scheduled training run this weekend.

On the upside, even with the gain this week, I won Biggest Loser for month #4 in a row. I’m thinking I’ll take my $26 and treat myself to a pedicure this week.

    I schedule/ budget for a pedicure every 3 weeks since I took up running. I dont let them cut, but I have them scrub all the callouses and they do a much better job cutting my nails than I would.

    The polish, well that's just the cherry on top.
