Well I had an exciting week up until my weigh in hehe.
I am not going to let it get me down though because I totally rocked my half marathon on Sunday and that is what matters to me! I finished it 11 minutes faster than I did 3 weeks ago! Hello who would not be happy about that right? I completed 13.1 miles in 34 degree weather in 1 hour 48 minutes and 10 seconds!!!!!!!!!!
So that is what I want to focus on as I put this bad weigh in behind me and welcome a new week and a fresh new start. I am weighing in today at 155.4lbs I weighed in last week at 154.4 so for the challenge I am sorry to my wonderful partner Monica B. that I am letting us down. But I am working my ass off and I can only hope the scale will be kinder to me this coming week!
I did manage to train all week long and I racked up a total of 32 miles!!! This is my most yet! I am proud of myself for going the distance and pushing through. I also got 40 push ups done at one time for the push up contest. I started only being able to do 25 in 1 set. So my body is working, it is performing faster, harder, and stronger. I got into the gym today and ran 4 miles and then lifted weights for 50 minutes. I was so into my workout that I lost track of time!
This is what I need to get back to. The old me of working my ass off 6 days a week and not stressing over the damn scale. According to my BMI I have to hit 150 to be considered 'ideal weight' since I am 5'5. I am wearing a size 2 in my dress pants for work. I am in small shirts and workout pants etc. I am pretty darn happy about that. 13 months ago I was in a size 18 and XXLs and unable to shop anywhere that did not have plus sizes. 5 more pounds will come off when it is ready I guess. but until then I am going to keep working hard and keep doing what I love to do: run, lift and be happy.
Thanks for all your continued support!
