Weigh-in Friday!

So, another week, another weigh-in.  Today the scale lowered by 1.6 lbs over last week.  Whoo-hoo!!
I am 1 lb from where I was last summer when we went on vacation (and I gained 5 lbs which I never lost until now).  I have another 6 lbs to lose to be at my goal...  of course, I have another 12 weeks until my half marathon, so I wouldn't be surprised if I drop a few more which is FINE by me (my goal is still 15 lbs above my wedding weight). 

I updated my weight loss & milage tickers to the right as well.

Weigh-in Friday!

Today was my weigh in day.  My alarm went off at 5:45 and I turned it off.  Laid in bed and thought about getting up.  It took me about 5 minutes, I rolled out of bed and got my workout clothes on.  I went down stairs to weigh in and workout.  Last week - well, for the last 17 days the scale read 175.6 (well, I only weighed the 1st & the 10th - but no change).  Today I weighed in and was shocked at what the scale said to me, 172.6.  3 pounds, REALLY?!  I will take it, not as 3 lbs in 1 week, but 3 lbs in  17 days.

So I celebrated by taking a day off from running, I did a mere 20 minutes on the eliptical instead and celebrated those calories burned with a mocha.  :oP  The rest of the day will be good since we are having pizza for my nephew's birthday party tonight.

48 days into the new year and I am 11.8 lbs lighter and have ran 146.65 miles.  Just over 3 miles a day.  I think my goal shall be to increase my distances I run, but decrease the amount of times per week I run.  To run 4-5 days a week and still have totals around 20 miles as I have averaged per week so far.

Goals, goals, goals...

So what would life be if we didn't make goals?
I made a goal for the new year to lose 20 lbs and to run 800 miles.  Today is February 7th, just over 5 weeks into the year and I have ran 113 miles.  If I keep this up, I can run over 1000 miles this year!

1 month down

The first month of our weight loss competition has me 5.5 inches down and 8.8 lbs down.  I ran 86.6 miles in January too!! 

So this month, we have been cursed with 3 out of 3 sick kids, eating out multiple times, twisting my ankle on the treadmill and an treat of grabbing a mocha for fun.  My one standard item is to run.  I think I took 3 days off during the month.  My husband's birthday, the first day I was sick (yep the kids got me sick too!) and another "rest" day. 

We have been blessed here in ND with a warm winter, so getting outside to run has been a blessing.  Of course, as a SAHM most of my days are on the treadmill while kids sleep.
