Wednesday Weigh-In

Well, it's been a couple weeks since I've done an official weigh-in because of post-vacation stuff.  Last week I was mostly maintaining and just trying to get back to where I was before vaca.  Now this past week I've really been trying to get back to my workout routine, but it's still been lacking somewhat and I'm just craving FOOD and SWEETS.  BUT, good news...

this morning I was -1.6 lbs from before vacation!
That's almost -9 lbs total so far and a rollover into the next 10 lb weight bracket. (know what I mean? without saying what I actually weigh??) 

I'm pretty excited! And I CAN tell a difference, mostly in my upper body, not so much in my thunder thighs or belly bulge.  But we're getting there!

As for the upcoming 5K race... it's not this Saturday but next Saturday.  (Yikes, it's really coming up soon!!)  I drove through town trying to figure out what the course might be.  It's a tiny tiny town and I wasn't sure HOW they could get 3.1 miles out of it, so I wanted to see if going out on country roads would have to be necessary, and it's not looking like it.  Just one of the gravel roads right close to town perhaps, but we'll see. My mom's coming to watch the kids and I'm excited for them to get to cheer me on.  They love races, so it'll be fun for them to see Mommy participating!

So that's the update!  How are YOU doing???

call the race director to see the route. they should be able to tell you or send you a pic or something.

And dear, let me just tell you one thing. Even when you hit that goal weight, things aren't going to be like they were in your 18-year-old body. That's something I've accepted and I think is integral to our perspective of healthy living. We must accept that sometimes good is good enough. My stomach still is full of loose skin and isn't flat at all, but it's strong under that flab and my thighs will always be big and rubbing together, but they, too, are strong. :) Just be sure that you're not expecting to look like an air-brushed supermodel. And trust me, you look good!!
