Yeah. That’s the kind of week it was. I was down 0.7lbs at WI today. So new weight is 166.3lbs and a total loss of 85.3lbs. Yippee! Got back to my official 85lbs lost 🙂
Here’s that picture again in case you forgot what 85lbs looks like:
Okay, so I’ll be honest – I thought I would have lost more. Seriously. I was a touch disappointed. But we all know other weeks I would have been over the moon with a 0.7lbs loss. I earned 43 activity points – all of which were either weight training or running – and after a couple snafus I got back on track on Friday and spent the rest of the week within my points.
However, I also pushed myself during my long run on Sunday and instead of running 8K I did 10K! Which is awesome. Yay me. But also, I’ve noticed when I do extra-long runs (what for me is an extra long run) I tend not to lose or lose little. So I’m hoping that’s what it is and that I’ll see the loss on the scale next week.
Here’s hoping I don’t jinx it, but I’m feeling pretty confident about the upcoming weeks in terms of my weight loss. I’m feeling much more in control and ready to eat healthfully. I think I’ve got the activity down, it’s really about the food right now and I want to make sure I don’t let the comfort food get out of hand.
To keep me on track I’ve once again joined a challenge on the WW forums. It’s called No Excuses in November and my goal is to lose 4lbs and get in 1200 minutes of activity. I’m doing well so far. I’m down 0.7 and I’ve gotten in 395 activity minutes!
I also bought myself a new running jacket to keep me running outside as long as I can. Well truth be told, I bought two, and now I’m going to return the one I’m not keen on. I’ll post up a pic of me wearing the one I finally decide on later this week. I’m also going to update some goals and post my activity sheet for October and my measurement – phew! Lot’s to catch up on here, but I’ll get it all up.
How’s everyone else doing with activity and exercise with the cooler weather? What are you doing to keep yourself moving?
