Little measures of progress
Thursday, October 10, 2013
When you weigh once per week, you rely a lot more on how your clothes fit to measure progress. The shorts that were almost too tight to wear are now loosely comfortable. Not too large to wear, but big enough that I wouldn't buy them, if I were shopping. Yay. I must be almost to size 14.
When I get to 190 or so, I'll go to the thrift store and pick up a pair of jeans or two, to get me by until I can at least get in my 8s.
Don't I sound confident. :P :D
Milestone tomorrow -- one month of going to the gym faithfully. Half-way point of my re-Run5K. I'm kinda scared of the 6-minute run, but if I can do 5 Monday and Wednesday, then I suppose I can do 6 on Friday. Going to celebrate by going to Red Lobster with Mom. I can stay on plan there.
Starting to notice some toning in my arms and legs, so the ST is having some effect. The other day, after shoulder and chest work, my arms were heavy as I put on makeup after my shower. I guess that's a good sign, too!
I had a day today when I just wasn't hungry. I had a big breakfast (two eggs over hard, a cup of home fried potatoes, and two pieces of rye toast with butter) with Dad after I took him to the eye doctor. We ate about 10 a.m., so I skipped lunch. We ate supper about 6:30, and I still wasn't super hungry. So I just had about half a can of Chunky light beef noodle/vegetable soup and some snow peas that I picked from the garden. Drizzled them with a little dark sesame oil and added oriental seasoning. Good!
I might eat an apple later, just to get some more calories in healthfully. Or maybe soy "yogurt." I dunno. It's weird to not feel like eating. I feel fine, so I hope I'm not coming down with something.
Guess i'll take it while it lasts!
Overall, I'm feeling a bit narrower. My legs are smaller (I just remembered to start measuring them last week), and my waist is starting to make an appearance. It's so rewarding, starting to see a change. Trying to stay patient and do it right.
