Today I was shocked to say the least. I have not weighed myself in a week because of giving into temptation (halloween treats). Don't get me wrong. I haven't gone over board but I have had a daily dose of chocolate. You see I don't normally buy chocolate because as long as it isn't in the house I won't eat it. I don't like candy just the chocolate. So being that the kids have an abundance of the not so healthy treat I have given in to my weakness. I still have been faithful to my C25K training. This morning I decided that I had to get on the scale and see how much damage I have done. To my surprise I have not gained any weight. Quite the opposite. I lost 1.5 lbs. I couldn't believe it! I thought I must of absent-mindedly held on to something while I was being weighed so I reset the scale and got back on. No mistake. It read the same. What have I done differently this week that I didn't do last week? The only thing I came up with is the mad fall cleaning and the tremendous stress of the week. Could that have been it? I will never know. This new weight means I have reached my goal. Now I will focus more on strength, toning, and maintaining but I don't plan on forfeiting my c25k. My goal is to run my first 5k in the spring.
