Not feeling too bad about what I saw on the scale this morning. I'm pretty happy about it, actually. I needed some good news, that's for sure.
I'm going to just right in with the numbers before I do anything else...
Starting weight: 214.6lbs
Weight last week: 213.2lbs
Weight this week: 211.8lbs (-1.4lbs)
Last week, I set a goal to lose 2lbs. Well, I didn't reach that goal - but I did drop 1.4lbs. That's not too shabby. Especially when I really didn't get to exercise as much as I had planned. This week's lost has finally put me at the 85lbs lost mark. That means there's only 15lbs to go to reach that 100lb milestone. That's exciting.
I have made a decision this week that has upset me a little - but I think it will be for the best.
I've decided to cancel my gym membership. It's mostly a monetary reason. I don't really need another monthly bill, and really think that I should be saving as much money as I can. I'm also not using the membership near as much as I started out doing. It's not because I've lost my passion for it - it just seems like there's always some kind of meeting or plans that get in the way.
The plus side is that now the weather is so much nicer, I just want to be outside running anyway. I know that I can't just rely on running - but I have plenty of equipment at home that I could be utilizing. I figure if I cancel my membership this week, I will still have a full month to use the gym (you know, 30 days notice)...so I'll just try and do the best I can in that amount of time.
My toes is still pretty sore and I haven't been able to really do any exercising this week - but I plan on getting to the gym tomorrow afternoon. Even if I'm only able to do some weight work and stationary bike...it's better than nothing. I'm really hoping that I will be ready to run again this weekend.
My 5K race is getting closer and closer. In fact it's only 2 1/2 weeks away. I'm still not ready. I really wanted to be able to run the full 5K, but the best I can do right now is run 12 minute increments. I also haven't trained enough on a 5K terrain. I've been training at a flat track - it's going to be quite a bit different on the day when I'm trying to run those hills. Maybe this weekend I actually go out and run the 5K course? That would give me a good idea on what I need to work on.
It appears that I'm starting to make a little bit of progress in regards of moving away from my plateau. I need to keep up the momentum - broken toe or no broken toe. I may not have lost a lot of weight during the Spring in 2 Action challenge - but that doesn't mean I can't win the Biggest Loser competition I'm doing at work.
Well, it's already time for me to get ready for work....so have a great day, everyone!!
Till next time. ;)
