A Good Week . . .

Saturday, February 23, 2013

. . . except for the weigh-in. And I don't mean the weigh-in was bad, it just wasn't good. Danged scale still won't dip : ( I only want it to hit 145 one time, just *one time*!

I did meet my exercise goals, though. Did 3 days of Sun Run training, a long session, a short session and a long session. The training regime at this point usually nets me about 3k in distance so after I finish the training pattern of run/walk, run/walk I just keep on walking till I've covered a total of 5k. I want that mileage as much as I want the training results.

I was pretty conscientious with nutrition intake. Yesterday was a bust for the Nutrition Tracker as I spent the day on the road or in meetings. At the Regional District (sort of a county-level local government body where I occasionally fill in for the elected rep) they put a bowl of candies & nuts and another of salty snacks at each person's place around the Board Room Table. I'm strong for the first hour or so, putting the bowls away in my drawer under the table, but I know they're there and others around the table are dipping into their treat bowls as we discuss and debate, and eventually I succumb. Net result was about a 30% calorie overage yesterday. I stayed just below my level today and of course the Nutrition Tracker told me to smarten up. Tomorrow I'll stick to the low end of my nutrition range and feel expiated for yesterday's indulgence. All only minor blips in the Long Haul, I know.

Before signing off, I'd just like to say emoticon to all of you Sparkers who read and responded so encouragingly to my last blog. Much appreciated!

    Oh how I know that feeling on trying to hit a certain #. You'll get there -- if anyone can do it, you can!

    Best wishes for achieving your weight goal soon. Kudos for at least trying to control your response to temptation. I don't think I would have been quiet so successful without outright removal of the temptations. I don't quiet know what you mean by a Sun run but guess i don't really need to in that you're overall objective seem to be getting your 5K in. Hope you're not snowed in and having to use the dreadmill to achieve your distance goals. emoticon

    Oh man, they sabotaged you with that bowl of treats! Hard to resiste when they are right in front of you. Good job on being aware and getting back on track!

    Y to go on your Sun Run training. I am envious of you right now because I had started trying but had to quit because my knee is swelling up and making walking difficult. Just have to lose more weight first!

    But so glad for you!

    Sounds like your 10K training is going well, keep up the good work.
    Good luck hitting that 145 at least once.

    Maybe you could do like the woman I saw in a comic and tie a lot of balloons to your arms so the scale goes down to 145.

    But then, that would be cheating...

    You'll get there if it's meant to be.

    I am stuck right now too. I will weigh in on Sunday and hopefully I will see some loss there. It's been two weeks since I have lost anything. Frustrating when you're following the eating plan. Oh well, I will just keep eating healthy and hopefully I will be able to start exercising soon.
    I am glad you are not stressing over the minor blip that you had. Your attitude is great. You got right back on track and didn't let it through you off. Good job!!
    Keep up the good work. : )
