The scale is still stuck. To give myself credit, it did budge 0.2 pounds down, but OH MY GOD WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG? I am doing the right things. I am eating right. I am exercising. I am drinking sh*t tons of water. I'm still not back where I was before my work trip 10 days ago. I do think there's a hormonal factor at work right now, but good lord this is frustrating.
I know I have to just keep plugging along. That it will happen. I've all but given up hope of reaching my 10-pound goal by my vacation at the end of June, but I can at least get to my mini goal by then, which is to be the smallest I've ever been as a fully grown human.
Now that my 10-mile race is done, I have decided to move on to hiking. The weather is warming up and I really don't want to run much these days. I got an annual pass to Great Falls and did my first hike yesterday. It was a beautiful day for it and I loved it. I found a new trail that's flatter and more open, and less crowded because it's away from the river, and it'll be great to take the dog out there. Then when it's just me I'll tackle the river trail which is much harder.
I still want to do the Grouse Grind on my vacation in Vancouver this summer so I need to do more hiking/hills/etc. to prepare.
I'm super frustrated with the scale right now but I'm still feeling motivated. I'm trying to remind myself (over and over and over and over and over and over again) that I'm in this for the long haul.
