is better than gaining! I lost .2 lbs. this week. I figured these last 6 lbs. would come off slow and I'm ok with that. As I mentioned in a previous blog, 2 years ago loosing the last 5 lbs. to get to my Weight Watchers goal took over 8 weeks.
Just like 2 years ago, my clothes fit well, I feel great, I'm exercising and my measurements are good.
I really didn't get in a lot of exercise this past week either (Wed-Wed). I ran last Wednesday and again on Monday. I had another good run on Monday. I did 2 miles straight in 24:36, walked about 2 mins. and did another 5 mins. of running. I got in about 3 miles of running/walking. I didn't do anything yesterday. We had some really weird weather, it was warm and humid and then a big storm came in about 5 pm. It was raining so hard, I couldn't even see while I was taking DD#1 to work. I wasn't planning on running yesterday anyway, but I was going to do my DVD. I ended up helping DD#3 with a Girl Scout project. She's earning a leadership award and her Cadette troop is working with a Brownie troop. They are working on a "diabetic" cookbook and everyone has to make a recipe. We made "diabetic" brownies last night. They looked a little weird, so we decided to taste them. They tasted awful and had a pretty bad aftertaste. DH said they might not taste that bad to someone who doesn't eat a lot of sugar - but yuck! I found another recipe today and we're going to try that tonight. She needs to be able to show the Brownie troop how to make them on Thursday.
The big storm last night brought in a cold front and it's about 40 degrees with 40+ mph wind gusts. A little north of us got snow. I guess it's not as bad as what the NE is getting hit with now!
Since I have to take DD#1 to work, DD#2 to basketball and help DD#3 again tonight, I'll just do my DVD workout and wait and run tomorrow. Thursday - Sunday is supposed to be beautiful - sunny & mid-60's so I'll make sure I get in some runs this week.
Daylight Saving Time starts this Sunday, so even though I'll loose an hour of sleep, it will stay lighter in the afternoons. That gives me a lot more time to run/walk/play outside (and less excuses)!
