I have decided to do at least a weekly update on my weight loss journey, mostly to keep myself in check. So, I guess this is the first update.
This is a horrible time of year, in general and for my family. It’s gross and cold outside and we are SO busy. Every time I turn around there is a basketball game or someone has a meeting –it’s always something. So, I have been less than motivated to run. Until a couple of a weeks ago, I religiously ran 3 times a week, through Thanksgiving, through Christmas – everything. I was Hard Core. But now, I’m like, “I’m tired. It’s late. It’s cold.” All are just excuses. Last week, I only ran once. This scares me. A lot. I feel like I’m quitting. I need to just get off my butt – no matter how tired or how late and just go. I have just a few nights a week that I physically can run since we have so many commitments right now and I’m just not making good use of my time. I should have gone last night, but I didn’t.
That all being said, the scale was very kind to me this past week! I lost 4.8 pounds! I think I was just getting lucky. Some weeks, I do all the right things and lose nothing. This week I did all the wrong things and still lost weight. I kicked off last week by overeating at a Super Bowl Party, then didn’t run as I should, then ate too much a couple of nights that we had basketball, then went out to dinner with friends and had (GASP!!!!!) dessert and a few fries. (I should say though that I chose the berry crepe and not the quadruple chocolate pile of yumminess that I REALLY wanted to eat.) I thought for sure that I was heading straight back up, but the scale just kept slowly moving down.
I think someone needs to remind me of this week when I’m doing everything right, but the scale isn’t cooperating.
Ok: So here is my goal for this week. It’s an oldie, but I haven’t been good about it.
I will run three times this week. (If weather does not permit, I will use our gazelle or do some Wii. It’s not the same, but the commitment is the same.) As a result of other commitments, my runs have to be Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
So, hold me accountable internet friends. Ask me how my run was! (Tonight it was decent!)
You Got It!
