Remember Friday, when I posted about how I'd lost 71 pounds and how it was gone forever? Well, one of those pounds found me again and I have only lost 70 as of today. Ugh! I just hate that. I'm sure it's for no other reason that I had too much salt or didn't pee enough or whatever, but it's still annoying. Oh well, it is what it is.
Several years ago when I was following LA Weight Loss (scam, by the way), I never gained. Seriously. I weighed myself almost every day and I never gained. I always lost, even if it was only .2. That was a nice feeling. But that was while I was on the program. When I quit the program I gained, gained plenty. Or maybe it wasn't gaining, maybe it was just finding the weight again. Although I also found some of its friends, too.
Yesterday I went out for my Monday run, a planned 5K as usual. The past few days have been quite summery here in our fine city and once I got out there I could tell it was going to be too hot. And I think those thoughts sort of derailed me into thinking I shouldn't go as far as I planned in case I needed water. So I headed back home after about a mile and a half. BUT instead of quitting completely, I paused my workout (Nike+), got a quick drink of water and then headed to the treadmill. I resumed the workout and completed a total of 5.23 miles! On a Monday! I felt awesome and I needed it! I needed a great run to remind me that it's possible.
My 10K "race" is 12 days away. I admit that I'm feeling nervous. When I go out from my house to run 10K or 5K or whatever, I always have the option to say "oh, never mind." But when you're out there on race day, there's no changing your mind. That is a good thing about events, but also makes it a bit nervewracking!! I had a friend who signed up to run with me, but she got a better offer for a weekend away with her husband and now won't be doing the run with me. That is fine; we didn't plan to stay together anyway. But now I'm kinda like, well, maybe I don't have to do it either. But I've already paid, and I already missed one event that I paid for, so it seems like a waste of money. I just need to start psyching myself up for the "fun" to come. Fun! Fun! Fun!
I have been reading a few great blogs recently and I am planning to add a blogroll when I get the chance. I have found some of the best blogs by clicking links on other bloggers' blogrolls. For now, though, my blogging time has run out and I have just a few minutes to eat my lunch! I cannot miss lunch, of course. Today is leftover lasagna, Chobani blueberry yogurt, and an apple. Yummy!
Thanks so much for reading and have a great day!
