A Little Bit from Column A, A Little But from Column B

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.


  1. YEAH! for hitting your 30 lb goal! Someday I'll be there, too.....someday!

  2. Oh my poor 30 pound goal. It was so fleeting. Vacationing in WI will kill your weight loss efforts. LOL! There will be a post shortly all about it, so you can learn all about what NOT to do on vacation. Ugh.
