Wednesday Weigh In/November Progress Report
I can’t believe November is already over. It was a whirlwind month here of home renovations, holidays and a few races thrown in the mix.
I didn’t blog about last week’s weigh in because I was miserable about it, I’d gained over a pound. I’d finally thought I’d broken the cycle of gains from the summer and so this was a big mental setback. But this week I’ve dropped that gain and a little bit more. I’m not entirely sure how with Thanksgiving thrown in the mix there. I was careful and I did try to stay active. My only guess is that I was just running around a lot doing errands and cleaning and such so I not only didn’t snack as much but I was moving more. So onward, yay!
Now onto my November progress.
1. Run at least one race a month.
Still well ahead on this goal for the year overall. I did run two races in November, the Vicki Soto 5K and the Fischang-Cichetti Memorial 5K. I could have run the five miler at the second race but it was a last minute sign up and I felt kind of wimpy about it. I haven’t been running as much lately and worried about how I would do.
2. New Goal: 5K in under 35 minutes.
Still not there, but closer. This last race was a hilly race, and even so I scored a 35:40. I am going to keep working towards this goal. I was truly happy with that time for the course. I’d like to think I can hit this one soon.
Finally reach my goal weight.
Today’s weigh in takes me down a pound overall for the month and the lowest weight I’ve been since September. Getting that BMI number below 28.5 is a big psychological barrier for me, so I’m ready to keep it moving back down to where I was earlier this year.
My goal weight is still out there, but with the holidays and everything I’d be glad to just keep dropping a few pounds and not gaining as we get through December. I think I am really getting into the headspace that while I’d love to be thinner, I know myself and my comfort zone. I feel healthy and active and while I’d like to lose twenty pounds, I could comfortably live around 135-140 and be OK with that.
Current Week: -2.2 lbs from last week/ 0.6 from two weeks ago
Total Weight Left To Lose: 15.6 lbs
