Measurements & Stuff

Monday, April 28, 2014

I weighed in again this week, to find the scale exactly - down to the ounce - where it was last week. Yet Friday was chock full of compliments and as I was about to get into the shower J said he sees results too. So I went out and bought a shiny new measuring tape.

Of course, I have no reference for these numbers, but I'll be interested to see if they go down over the next few months.

Because even if I am not losing pounds, losing inches is what really matters more to me anyway.

In other news, I *completed* four miles yesterday. I started running, but then my stomach acted up, so I walked to the sports pavilion for a pitstop, then started running again only to have my knees act up, so I walked a good chunk of the way home. All in all it was four miles in 55 minutes which is not very impressive. But I DID IT.

While I was at the sports pavilion, I saw a sign for a 5K in my neighborhood. Next weekend. Ha! So, what the hell, I've signed up for it. I can literally walk to the start/finish line - how could I say no? First race of the season is upon me … here's hoping it goes a lot better than yesterday's four miles!
