Stepping on the scale this morning felt great. It read 175.4…. 10.4lbs down from Christmas Day! It felt great to finally break that 10lb barrier! Only 15-20lbs to go! I’d be very happy at 160 but would really like to get to 155lbs.
I also took my measurements today, my stomach measured at 29” and my hips at 43.25”. I am hoping in a week and a half when my trainer gets back from vacation… that my stats are even a bit lower! I also am getting my body fat checked on 2/25.
I had a great weekend which kicked off with working at the Y on Friday night… Saturday I cleaned my house, met my cousin Katy for lunch at Grapevine Café and and a great time catching up with her! Then I headed down to Neenah and had plans for the evening to do hibachi for dinner & see a Skyline Comedy café show. It was a great time!
Today I had a surprise birthday party to go to around lunch time, and was able to hang out with some of my friends J My dad came over and attempted to fix my broken garage door opener, unfortunately, we think the motor might be shot L After dad and Jeremy left, I headed out for my 6 mile run that I avoided yesterday. It was sunny but chilly and the sidewalks were still super icy! PEOPLE… learn to shovel and salt! I ran mostly on roads, against traffic… and some drivers are so RUDE!
Here’s my route and stats for the day:
I chose a super tough route today which basically takes me consistently uphill for the first 2 ½ mile with a bit of downhill, but then right back up. Mile two was particularly tough and I ended up having to walk a bit up the hill because it was icy and there was quite a bit of traffic. Mile 4-5-6 was flatter and I pushed myself a bit more even though my legs were frozen. All in all a good run after a week of being sick J Looking forward to the next few weeks… taper to 4 next week then back up to 6 before mileage starts climbing in March & April!!
I also realized that if I continue to run at the pace I ran today (6 miles in 66 minutes)… I could finish the Bellin come June with my fastest time in my 6 years of running the race!
Have a great week!
