Weight: 169.8 – I’m below my plateau of 170. I think not weighing myself all week helped.
Monday – Ran 4 miles
Wednesday – Ran 4.3 miles
Saturday – Ran 9.3 miles
I tracked my points every day, didn’t use any of my flex points and only some of my activity points. I added a vegetable to most of my dinners and even tried two new broccoli recipes. I usually hate broccoli, but they were pretty good. Ok, not really good per say, but edible without feeling nauseous which I all I really ask from my broccoli. We’re planning on trying at least two other new recipes this week.
I did have pizza after the 15k race and a small hot fudge sundae from McDonalds on Sunday. I’m really trying to make sure I lose weight in a way I can keep up forever, not just temporarily. I’d rather stay overweight than to lose it and gain it all back.
Last Week’s Goals:
- Do not get on the scale until Monday morning. A+, I didn’t cheat at all! It was hard, though.
- Track my points every day. A-, I tracked everyday, but forgot one or two items.
- Run Monday (already done, yay me!), Wednesday and Saturday. A+, did it all.
- Do cross training on Tuesday and Sunday. F, No cross training at all! I’ll do better next week.
- Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day. B, I did drink more than before, but I didn’t hit 63 ounces every day.
This Week’s Goals:
- Don’t weigh until Monday (again).
- Track my points every day. My friend at work and I have a deal where we have to track every day. If we miss a day, whoever misses will have to go up and down all four flights of stairs at work three times in a row. That should help keep me focused.
- Non-running exercise three days this week. Anything other than running (I’m taking at least this full week off to let my legs recover from the race).
- Foam roll at least four times this week.
- Eat a vegetable or fruit with every meal and snack.
I am hoping this downward trend continues. I am afraid that I have a physiological or psychological barrier to getting below 170. I tried on my costume (Ariel) for the Princess Half Marathon and although it is awesome (!!), it will look better if I lose a little more in the next month. I really want to love the photos, which might be easier if I’m another 5-10 pounds lighter. Running clothes aren’t very forgiving!
