Wrapping up the vacation/sick time

Alrighty, weighed-in today after three weeks of vacation and sickness. I wasn't sure how bad it would be. It could have been 7 pounds, it could have been 1 pound. My scale this morning said anywhere from 1 pound to 3 pounds. So, heading to the meeting, I knew I was up. I was THRILLED when it turned out I was only up 1.2 pounds in three weeks. Woohoo! That's not even a pound a week. :-) How excited am I about this??

So, now I am officially back on track and since the Vegas wedding goal is passed, I need a new one. I have decided to set Oct. 8, 2009, as that is the day we leave for our next adventure in WI and it's the day before my birthday. My goal is 12 pounds, which includes the 1.2 pounds I gained. That will get me lower than I was before we moved to PA five years ago. I would be THRILLED with that!

In just a little while, I head to the doctor to talk to her about the knee pain I've been having when running/walking. I want to make sure I'm doing all I should to protect it from getting worse. I wanted to know if I should do more than a brace on it, i.e. should I ice it down when I come home? I have no idea. So, I'm heading to the doctor to get her advice. I have a 5k on Sept. 20th in Baltimore and haven't run since the second week in July. I have a LOT to make up for and I want to do it right.

So, here we go. 12 pounds by Oct. 8th. It's on!


  1. YOU CAN DO IT!!! Way to go to getting back on track!

  2. Thanks! :-) You're catching up with me, I gotta be on my game. LOL!
