I'm combining Thursday and Friday into one big super entry.
It was a good day. The day before weigh-in, so it's the day that I struggle with, but generally am on track the best for. I ate well, stayed on points. Had a good breakfast and lunch. Dinner we made a yummy spaghetti squash, vegetables, and tuna dinner. I really like spaghetti squash, so low in calories, a vegetable, and tasty. Hard to find that. And I got to enjoy Eggnoggin tea. Yum!
It was Thursday, so it was running day. Headed off to the park to run. I couldn't do a treadmill run or go to the close park because I decided I needed to run between 3-4 miles. Hit the park and off I went. The weather has been lovely lately, so I was able to go at 3:00 p.m. and not later when the sun is setting. Good for photos, bad for running. Mile one was pretty decent - slower than last Sat. though my half mile was faster. Strange. I was just a minute or two slower overall Thursday than Sat. though speed was not a consideration in the run. Just getting in that 3-4 miles. I ended up with 3.25 miles, which I was happy with. It was a good run day.
Weigh-in day. I got a new scale this week that indicated a good loss. Apparently it's not as good as I thought it was. :-( I was down this week - 1.2 pounds. Which means I've FINALLY hit the 30 pound mark. My heavens! It took long enough. It's 2 months past when I thought I would be there. But, I'm there. I shouldn't be upset over it really. I did reach it. I am 30 pounds less than I was at the beginning of the year. This is a vast improvement in health and my body. I am ready to keep going. I have 21 more pounds to loose. I would love to see it by the end of the year, but I don't think I'll hit it by the end of December. I can see 15 more before the end of December. Hopefully!
I had every intention of eating well today. I want to eat Crab Fries on Sunday at the Phils game, so I wanted to have a good food day today. I didn't. I was fine until dinner, then it I ate poorly. I made the choice, so I am responsible for it, but man! I wanted to have a better food day than I did. I'll make it work. I have 6 more days to make it work.
No exercise today. It's Friday and it's the only official non-exercise day of the week. Tomorrow is a 5 mile run, as long as the weather holds. Who knows what it's going to be. It's supposed to be cool and clear, but I would not be surprised to get up and see rain. We shall see.
