Not letting the scale slow me down.

Friday, September 21, 2012

I know we all have a weight we want to get at. Because of prior diets I've been on I have a habit of getting on that scale almost every morning. It hasn't budged in quite some time. I've picked up running again and loving it! I'm eating better and cooking lighter with the help of Spark Recipes. My pants are feeling a little looser and the Hubby says he notices that I'm loosing inches too. I'm OK with that. Sure it's disheartening to see that darn scale number stay the same. However, I also know that working out doesn't necessarily mean the numbers are going to change the way you want them to. I know that soon the body will catch up with the running and the numbers will start sliding.

I have a 5k to run in 11 days! I'm excited but scared... excited because I'm doing a 5k. scared because I have no teammates to run it with. I also know that once I get there, the crowds are going to be my teammates and running alone will be a thought of the past.

Have a great week end!

    WOOHOO! Kick butt in your 5K! I know you'll have a blast! Sometimes it is even better to run alone because it becomes a personal journey ;) Have a great week!
