Successful First Week

So….I didn’t post my weight last Friday, but I did weigh myself and I had a successful first week of “maintenance”.  My weight was pretty much the same, and not up.  🙂  
Here’s a couple fun things that happened over the week: 

  • I passed on some clothes to a friend of mine telling her that some were given to me and just weren’t my style.  I said, “Since I figured we’re about the same I thought you’d like them.”  She rolled her eyes and said something like, “oh please…” as in ‘ we’re not the same size, you little thing” .   I realized I am a size smaller than her now, which was not always the case.  
  • While out running the other day I passed a neighbor walking and she told me I was doing great.  I responded, “It’s a miracle!”  lol  It was.  I ended up having my fastest 3 mile run completing 3.5 miles in about 36 minutes – a 10:38 pace.  Woot!
  • One of my daughters informed me that she think she might want to take up running instead of playing basketball next year.  I had mentioned to my family about all of us doing a 5K in the spring and she later said she was even thinking about seeing if she could do the 10K instead.  *sniff*  I was so proud to hear my daughter want to push herself a little bit in the physical fitness area of her life and especially to know it was because I encouraged her to do so, not just her dad.  🙂
We’re entering a very busy week of a Bible conference at our church, so I may or not be around.  It looks like our weather might actually be turning to fall, for real, so I hope to enjoy some cool, brisk days visiting with friends and helping out at my church.  
Until next time… Have a good day!

  1. Glad that the first week of maintenance went well! It's always awkward giving clothes that are too big for you to a friend – it sounds like you handled it well.
