Wednesday Weigh In
I was down a whole pound yesterday, and actually thought about putting that number up here this morning. But since last week I was relieved when the number was significantly lower on Wednesday instead of Tuesday, I am going to be true to the concept of Wednesday Weigh Ins and put what the scale said today. Disappointed though I am with it.
I thought this week would be a better week, closer to a 2 lb loss. It was a good week for exercise, again, with me pulling through and coming up with my longest run without stopping ever. On Friday I ran for 60 minutes without stopping at all on the trail, and then Monday I ran for 70:37 without stopping; 5.5 miles. I ran those miles in the neighborhood, with hills, in preparation for tomorrow’s 5 mile race. I did strength training two days, including yesterday (maybe I’m retaining water from that?). It was a good week exercise wise.
Mostly it was a good week food wise too. Good choices except for the wine intake, which again tends to be the wild card. I had lunch with a girlfriend on Tuesday and we consumed more wine than we should, let’s just put it that way. Overall, I am definitely on a downward trend there for sure, but it’s a work in progress.
Anyway, it is what it is. .6 is still a loss, and I’m going to focus on that. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and we’re staying at home. I’m cooking healthier desserts, making traditional sides that I will eat less of, and focus on the turkey being a wonderful lean protein. And if I slip a bit? I’ll have run five miles in the morning in my race, so I’ll have a little wiggle room. It’ll be fine.
