Well my friends Weigh In Monday is Officially BACK! Last week I came in at 304.6 which was up by 6.4lbs (I think) since I had stopped weighing in and decided to take a mini break. I was a little disappointed at first this morning when I stepped on the scale. I caught a sneak peek of my weight yesterday and I was down to 298 which would have been my all time low in a year. However, I noticed a couple of things this morning, one was, my bladder wasn’t super full like normal and two both of my ankles were swollen.
Ah, yes, water weight. Which I know I have a lot of. But seeing puffy ankles and an up in the scale is a good indication that I didn’t gain 2lbs of FAT (the horror) it’s just water. I also knew that on Saturday I decided to run 3.1 miles (a 5K) on the treadmill. I have been running about 1.5ish doing my C25K program. But wanted to try doing a 5k and seeing how long I could really jog without stopping.
I am SUPER proud to say that I did a 5 minute warm up and I only walked when I was half way at 1.5 miles and that was a 4 minute walk. This was HUGE for me. I have NEVER ran that long before. Granted it was super-duper slow and the eyes of running I probably wasn’t running. BUT for me I wasn’t walking. lol If I bounce it’s no longer walking in my book lmbo. So I have to say it was a good week!
I didn’t torture myself with rules and what not. I told myself moderation, watched the carbs for the most part. I couldn’t have done better on several days. But I am not going to focus on that. I lost 4lbs this week and broke a new running record for me. So hey, in my book that’s freaking awesome progress even if I am still up a little bit from June over all. It’s okay, I will be down next week and at my new all time low in a year anyways. So this week I am celebrating 4lbs gone and cheers to running for 60 minutes! Woot Woot!
