What is that number?!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

I weighed in this morning and I lost another .4 lbs. I saw a number I haven't seen since before I got married (over 20 years ago!).

I'm back in maintenance and not trying to loose weight, but I'm 2.2 lbs. below goal, so that gives me more wiggle room! I was a little afraid I would show a gain. My eating has been a little off. I haven't quite worked out a "summer routine" yet. As I mentioned before, my summer has been crazy so far. I'm doing ok with breakfast & lunch, although it's a pain sometimes to chop & prepare stuff. I was almost going to eat some crappy cereal this morning and just buy something for lunch, but my weight loss motivated me to fix my eggs & veggies and make my lunch!

I ran last night with DH & DD#2. We parked at the gym and DD#2 went inside to run & play basketball and DH and I ran the hilly trail. We did a warm up walk around the parking lot and then hit the trail. He goes the opposite direction of me because he likes to run up the big hill and I can't quite make it. Going my way is hard too because there are a lot of "up & down" hills. One loop is about 1.5 miles so I did a loop and ran back to the car. I'm figuring it was about 1.8 miles. It's a really hard run and it was very hot & humid last night. It was still about 88 degrees at 7:00 pm!

I got my water out of the car and briskly walked to the gym. DD#2 was playing a pickup game and DH wasn't there yet, so I ran another 1/2 mile on the indoor track and did a cool down walk of a couple of laps.

By the time we got back home, it was almost 8 pm, so I had a ham sandwich on a sandwich thin (with lettuce, pickles & cucumbers on the sandwich), a cheese stick and some grapes. Most days I eat 5+ servings of veggies, 1-2 servings of fruit and 1 serving of grain & lots of protein. There are those "off" days too, but that's pretty much what I'm sticking to for maintenance.

Today is DH's birthday. I'm going by the grocery store after lunch to pick up some stuff to grill (and a cake!).

I took a day of vacation tomorrow because I don't have any "back up" to get DD#2 & DD#3 where they need to be tomorrow morning. I should get them dropped off by 9:00 am and don't have to pick up DD#2 until 11, so I think I'll run tomorrow morning. It's supposed to be even hotter on Thursday 90+, so it will be good to get the run out of the way.
