Weigh-In Wednesday: 1/2/13 Post Holidays Edition

Highest Weight:                                     310
Last Weigh In:                                       239.2
Current Weigh In:                                  239.4

Total Weight Gain:                                      .2

Total Weight Lost:                                   70.6

Okay, so I'm still going to take this as a win.  This is the time of year when almost EVERYONE gains weight.  So, for me to essentially not gain or lose anything during those two weeks?  Yup, it's a win.  Because I know I didn't eat the best that I could have, nor did I work out for one whole week.

I'm just glad that I didn't go back into the 240s.  I would have cried.  I lived there for so long that I NEVER WANT TO GO BACK!  Over a year of my life I lived in 240-land.  I'm getting used to seeing that little 3.

Anyway, eating and exercise are back.  on.  track.  I'm counting diligently and I'm currently letting my food digest before I head down to the gym.  I'm going to try and be better about working out before work rather than late at night.  We'll see how it goes and what it does with regards to my weight loss.

In terms of my running goals for this year, I'm not going to set lofty ambitions.  I know I said that I will run a half marathon this year, but I honestly don't know if I can.  There's a lot of details that would need to align and I will just wait and see if they do.  I'm going to continue to just run and not worry too much about seeing how far I can go.  I think that might have contributed to my back pain.  I pushed myself too hard too fast.  I need to remember to build up slowly!  So, I'm going to run 2-3 miles 3-4 times a week and we'll see how that goes.  If my weight loss stalls, I'll pick it up.  I want my body to be working hard, but not to the point where I injure myself.  I'll see the higher mileage again.  I know I will.  Just takes time.

I need to remember: Good things come to those who wait.  Not those who are stupid and impatient.

I may have added that last part of the saying...
