Dear niece and nephew have agreed to take me to the Jingle Bell races in Winter Haven on Dec 14th. I know it isn't convenient for them; neither is a morning person and they will need to be at my house, out of the way, by 6am for us to make it. I am very grateful. Hubby just doesn't want to go and sit with the dog for several hours and I can understand that, too. The 10K is at 7:15 and the dog walk isn't until 9:15.
So I decided to do the 10K and decided not to pressure myself for speed. If I'm having a good day, I'll go for breaking an hour. Eventually I do want to accomplish that feat and believe I can. But if I'm not feeling it on the 14th, I'll just enjoy the run. I'm hoping that my daughter will bring the grandkids for the 9:45 kid races. No definite commitment, so we will see!!
I was delighted to be down another 1.6 pounds today for a total of 3.4 pounds under my Friday morning weigh in. There was more sodium weight and less fat than I had thought. I'm now in my maintenance range, a pound under my ticker goal weight and about 8 pounds under my Weight Watcher goal weight. However, I'm a half pound over my At Goal and Maintaining .... Team center weight and two pounds over my favorite weight. I'm kind of laughing at myself, 4 years and 9 months after reaching my original Weight Watcher goal (which I've reduced two times) I'm still playing around with a goal weight. I had said I would take 2013 to nail down a goal weight and 2014 to make peace with the scale. I may take the full 5 years-- until March 2014 -- to embrace a goal weight range. I don't see any advantage to a quick decision on this issue.
Truly such "problems" are a victory in themselves!!
