I gained a little this week (about a pound and a half). I did switch my scale to a digital.. which adds 5.4 lbs.. but it is way easier to get a good reading with it than with the dial scale. I have been losing inches though, so that is always good.
I am going to get a gait analysis tomorrow for new running shoes at a local running store.. I tried running this week and I was reaalllyy hurting (the sides of my ankles), I am pretty sure it's my shoes. I love to run, I want to run so bad.. I can't wait to get the shoes darnitt!! And my next 5k is The Color Run on Jan 26th! Once I get these new shoes I am going to start seriously training for it. I actually realized that I can run from work to my house, it is 2.6 miles.. and there is another route later that I can take that is exactly 3.1 miles!! I am going to start off with 1 mile first then taking the bus the rest of the way home, and eventually get all the way home. 2 work days a week I will do it and 1 non work day a week I will run around my house. Incorporate strength training and elliptical again, and I will be good!
I eventually want to do a half marathon.. and then a marathon!! I am adding it to my goal list :D
I have been slipping with candy this week.. stupid me, I bought candy and a cauldron and stuck it on my desk for my team at work... even putting it on the desk next to me tempts me. Food has been so tempting around me.. very very very tempting.. and I seem to be giving in.. although last week it was a little less that I was giving into. But I have been having problems with portion sizes. I can't seem to get full at smaller portions. I AM doing better than the past couple weeks. But I am still not exactly to where I want to be food-wise.
But no matter what, I know that this will take time. This won't take just a week or 2 to change.
I went blonde for Halloween!! I am happy with it, it looks awesome!!
I took a comparison pic this morning, I don't see any difference, but I have been through a lot since week 7, so I am just happy I am maintaining and learning at the same time.. and not gaining everything back.
