Today's weight: 161.8 (15 lbs to goal)
I've lost 3.8 lbs during my little challenge. Unfortunately I have only exercised twice-last Monday and today. It's all good, though. My main focus of this challenge was to get my head back on straight and I think it's working.
My exercise goal for this week is to run 4 times. Three 5Ks and one 5K+. I also plan to do a little stretching, abdominals, maybe weights, maybe yoga, whatever I feel like as long as I get in the runs.
I've been reflecting a little bit on my habits last year at this time vs. this year. I was pretty strict about getting 4 runs done every week last year and sticking to my "diet" plan. Reviewing my running data from then kind of gave me a kick in the butt. I know it's doable! Last year, it was all still new and I was still going strong to reach my goal by the end of the year. This year, I'm burned out a bit, still pretty much at the same weight as I was then. While staying the same weight is great and I'm glad to have "maintained", my goal hasn't been to maintain yet. I have spent this year trying to actually lose weight! While I could be discouraged about my lack of progress in that area, I'm going to focus on the fact that I have not quit! I have continued to run, I even ran a half marathon! I've learned a whole lot about myself in the process too.
So with all that set, let's get this party started. 15 pounds to goal! I can AND WILL do it!
