I've got to tell you, I was pretty excited about my morning weigh in today. It's not that I've been eating exceptionally well. Or exercising as much as I'd like, but I had a good weigh in. I felt like I was finally down and I'd be able to update my weight on here.
Because I don't always update my weight when it goes up. It's really enough that I know it's gone up. I don't need to actually make a point of that number. Although I do if it stays up for an extended length of time or if I've taken a break from SP and come back higher.
So this morning I thought that I'd be able to have a great update and post a loss.
Only to discover that I weigh the same today as I did in mid August.
The good news is I'm down 2.5 out of the 5 pounds I wanted to lose in September. Keeping in mind that for all of August I was sick and unable to exercise. And I chose comfort foods far too often which explains the 2.5 pound gain...
I did have an ok run last night after taking a week off for some back pain and then general laziness. And yes, I mean general laziness. I could've been running mid-week last week, but I didn't.
Last night, it was REALLY hard to make that decision to go to the gym. I was tired. I was making a million excuses. But I finally just did it. I went hoping to run 5k (3.1 miles). I ran 2 miles.
But 2 miles is 2 miles. And 2.5 pounds is 2.5 pounds. And I know that neither of those are grammatically correct, but they just sound better for me.
So, while I haven't met all of my goals for September, I'm making progress and that's really all I can hope for.
