The rain held off until my running group had made it the 8.44 mile route. Believe it or not, I did not feel one drop until less than a quarter mile back and as I slipped my key in to unlock my car door, I heard the first thunder of the day. What luck!
After drinking a bit of coffee with my running group, I went to the Y, foam rolled, and showered, and headed off to my favorite Weight Watcher meeting at 10 am. The topic today was plateaus. Very interesting. Much of it, especially the part about tracking carefully and being diligent, is very relevant to a maintainer who is gradually gaining a few tenths of a pound here and there.
I have not been doing much tracking recently, but I know I can and I know that works for me. I'm going to try another week or two to see if I can get back without it. I feel so much more "normal" when I don't track, but if it takes tracking for me to maintain, believe me I'll do it. My 86 year old mom will be here from Tucson starting next week for a visit and I'm not sure how long she'll stay. It will be good to see her. Hoping I can feed her well and healthy without starving her, and that it will help me. You know, I want to be a good role model for family. It may be a challenge, but time will tell. With the blessing of the rainless run, I feel ready to take it on!!
