After forgetting to weigh last week, I meant to leave myself a big sticky-note on my lap top Monday night. I forgot to do that, but I didn’t forget to weigh. I woke up telling myself, “Don’t forget to weigh. Don’t forget to weigh.”
As I stepped on the scale, I was really hoping to see more than the usual-as-of-late 0.5 pound loss. I thought to myself, “One forty-six would be nice.” I saw 146! But, just for a second. It’s like those teasers on The Biggest Loser.
The scale settled on 147.6, which is a 1.6 pound loss from last week! Yeah, I’ll take that! I guess the running has been paying off, which is really exciting because I’ve still been trying to get away with just mentally estimating my calories.
Speaking of running, my second 5K is tomorrow evening. I’m really excited! Yesterday, I managed to run the total 5K distance without stopping, so I’m hoping I can do that for the actual race. I feel sure I can if the course is mostly flat, but we’re not exactly known for our flat countryside around here. At the very least, I’m hoping to shave some time off my last 5K time.
Your turn! How did your weigh in go this week?
