Is there anybody out there?? If you are reading this will you leave me a quick comment?? Today in Weight Watchers we talked about losing our motivation. I feel like I'm a bit on the verge of that. Do you know what keeps me going????? YOU!!! I can totally FEEL your love and support for ME and that makes me want to try my hardest!! Thank you for everything!!!
At my WW meeting I had expected to have gained about 1 pound but was so surprised when I lost another .2 pounds. I was so happy that it was negative!!! I do feel, though, that is taking me FOREVER to get into the 120's!!! I have lost a very small amount in the past 2 months!! I am totally going to hang in there. I only have around 10 pounds to go and then my challenge will be maintaining my weight loss.
Here is my deep thoughts for today............... I cannot BELIEVE my transformation. I do not mean that in a boastful way, I just mean that I cannot believe how different I feel in my own skin. I still have quite a bit of chubbiness in my middle area but it is not nearly as HUGE as it was before. I feel so WEIRD!!! I honestly thought that because I have had so many children that I was forever going to have my "baby fat". That is the excuse, I mean name that I called it. It feels so strange to me to be able to wear jeans and not have them so skin tight and just uncomfortable. Today I put on my new pair of "boyfriend" jeans from the Gap and they are SOOOO comfortable!! That is one of the benefits to a healthier lifestyle....... comfortable clothes. Okay, I don't mean my old excuse, I mean sweat pants that I used to say I wore because they were so comfy. I mean clothes that FIT me, are cute, and comfy!!
I am really enjoying my new running phase of my life. I have some pretty big goals for my future and I know I can achieve them with the right training. Here is what I have done this week.......
Monday - I got up at 7 am (it was even a holiday!) and I ran on the main road by my house (very hilly). When I got home I hopped in my car to see how far it was that I just ran and it was 2.6 miles. Pretty good for not timing it and just trying to get a good run in.
Since this was a holiday I did TERRIBLE with my WW points!!! We had a BBQ at our house that was potluck and there was some pretty yummy dishes that I had to try. I ate pretty good when everyone was here but when everyone went home I had a hamburger and I took a bag of Doritos to eat in front of the TV! That was my old habit but I felt justified. It was a holiday, right!!
Tuesday - First thing I did this morning was dump both bags of left over chips down the sink!! I didn't want that temptation anywhere near me!!! I got on the treadmill later in the day and walked/ran for 3.5 miles. My toddler needed me at 45 minutes so I wasn't able to get a full hour in. My tummy hurt anyway (ummmm, can you say FATTY FOOD Monday fighting back!!)
I did really well on my WW points for Monday.
Today I went to the gym and decided to give my shins a break. I did the bike for 1 hour and then worked upper body. I'm SUPER sore today!!!
These are the best socks EVER!!! Balega brand running socks!!
I love my new Asics Nimbus running shoes, too!!
Hope you all are having a fabulous week!!!
