Weigh in # 21 and a revelation.

Saturday, January 28, 2012

So I've been hiding for a few days. I didn't make my Belly Laugh's goal by 1 lbs.

From Tuesday :
SW: 260
My weight before weigh in: 212
My current weight: 211 (- 1, -.47%)
Total lost to date: 49 (18.85%)

I was SO close. I went into sulky mode. I haven't been eating like I should - even though I'm within calories. I've been having some relationship drama lately so I haven't been sleeping good. I wasn't even hydrating the way I should. I didn't exercise ALL week other than taking the dogs out for potty time.

This morning was different. We cleared the air out Thursday night, we had dinner with another couple last night at a Japanese place (Super Delicious), and I woke up this morning refreshed.
I went out with Riley for a long overdue run. We did fantastic! I thought I was taking it easy, by jogging a block or two, then walking a block. But by doing that, we managed to average a pace of 13 min/mile - 0.4 min/mil faster than what I did on the 5k in December. I barely have any congestion left, so I'm sure that's a huge factor in my speed and endurance. The run was 2.925 miles in 37 minutes. Now that I'm over this illness, I need to get serious about running again. I'm going to do Week 5 starting Sunday, and see how that feels. Too easy? Go to Week 6. Too hard? Just keep trying.

We have planned a nice day at the park with the dogs, So there is much more activity left in the day. The scale wasn't as kind as I wished this week, but like I told a sparkfriend this morning : "That number on the scale doesn't define your success; the changes that your lifestyle creates do."

    Good job sticking to the running! I was in sulky mode yesterday when I went over two of my ranges because I went out to eat at a "healthy" place. I was wondering where you were!

    Congratulations on your overall weight loss! Forty-nine pounds is AWESOME!! One pound off from the Belly Laughs goal means that your Valentine's Day goal is still very much doable. Good Luck!!

    "That number on the scale doesn't define your success; the changes that your lifestyle creates do." --- I LOVE that!!

    Now... just to BELIEVE it, every day!!!

    You are doing great!! 49 lbs is a LOT!! Sure, 50 would be nice, even number, but if 50 is awesome, 49 can't be to far away from awesome, can it?

    Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!

    Awesome job with the running! I hope to get there one day. You are doing great! And I definitely understand about sulky mode. It's hard for me not to have one every other day. Thank God for new days! :)
