I'm use to the scale moving. One way or the other, it usually moves faster than it is now. But in all the times that the scale has or hasnt moved, I have never felt as ACCOMPLISHED as I do now :)
I've been getting to the gym most nights, taking time off when my body tells me to, and, to be honest, have really been pushing myself. It's been awesome! Tonight though was just one of those nights that you leave with a smile....I shaved time off of my 2 mile run! After my minute warmup (1/16 of a mile), I ran the rest of the 2 miles...NO STOPPING!!!... and finished with a time of 23:21!! That's about 11.6 min miles! I was so excited!! And to be completely honest, I could have kept going :) I know it's no Olympic record by any means, but it's the best I've ever hit in my entire exercising life. I then finished with some weights, and a quick elliptical run, and left beaming! This weekend Mike and I are going to do our "long run" of 3 miles outside, and I'm more than pumped for it. I know it'll definitely be harder, but I'm hoping to get out there and run!
