You know how some weeks you feel like you work and work and WORK to see the scale budge and get frustrated because it doesn't?
That has happened to me a lot.
Thankfully this wasn't one of those weeks.
If I'm being completely honest, I fully deserved to gain this week. My eating was in the toilet thanks to Easter and a lack of self-control. I avoided the scale most of the week...afraid of what I was going to see. AND...I even skipped a few runs this week just to give my hip a full rest before tomorrow.
I thought today would be U-L-G-Y.
So you can imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning and saw this:
(For those keeping tabs on me...that is a 2.4 loss for the week!)
Now to stay focused this next week and keep moving forward, right? Tomorrow will help. I've got this scheduled, remember?
And of course, I checked the weather for the event...and I'm not all that thrilled. Rain. Wind. Cold. Blech. But I will forget all that and run through the tulip fields...all 13.1 miles.
In other news, I started a new form of tracking. Honestly, the calorie counting wasn't doing it for me anymore. I needed a switch. So I downloaded iTrackBites.
It is basically Weight Watchers...only without the weekly fees. Now. I'm torn about this. Because I feel the weekly fees hold me accountable. Like if I know I have to pay to attend the meeting, it makes me a bit more conscious about what I eat. So I wasn't sure if I would like this or not. Today is only the second day tracking
points bites and so far, I'm loving it!
I got to thinking, the last time I started Weight Watchers it was 3 years ago (after I had Bubba). Actually, it was 3 years ago May the 6th. And my weight was very similar to what it is now (you can see under the My Stats at the top of my page). So here's the plan: duplicate what I did before and FINALLY make this happen.
How did your week go? Did you track your progress with us on the Fitness Friday document? (If you aren't tracking, start today...I post the link each Friday so we can help each other achieve our goals!)
Stay focused this next week, let's make the end of April count!!!
