It’s funny, but just when I feel like giving up I find what it takes to keep going and then results follow. I think the determination to make this the “last time” I lost that large amount of weight and the determination to never go back is what pulls me through.
Today’s Weight: 172.0
Loss/Gain: – 4.0 lbs
Well, I wasn’t expecting that, except that the only other day I weighed myself this week I was down and last week I saw 173 on the scale. So, I guess it shouldn’t have surprised me as much as it did.
It’s funny how this week I had a few moments where I overate and felt like I was never going to get the hang of it; but at the same time I had more moments where I felt back to my normal healthier self and made simple, basic choices for healthier living.
Tomorrow is my 10K race and I am ready. Last week I ran 5 miles and was able to maintain a pace close to a 12:00 minute mile. This will be my slowest 10K, but at least my pace has picked up since my first 6-mile run a month or so ago.
I will have to try and not think too much about how slow I am right now and remind myself that at least I can run for 6.2 miles. That’s more than I ever dreamed of years ago.
The weather has been gorgeous in the mornings, so I’m looking forward to enjoying a nice run tomorrow. This race weaves in and out of some wooded areas, so it’s always enjoyable for me.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for checking in!
