Finish Strong Sunday-A Winter Run and 30 lb. Milestone

Today’s weigh-in: Down 1.2 lbs. for a total of 30.4!  :D

I went to this weigh-in thinking I had lost nothing this week.  The scale remained steady at last week’s weight, actually up a bit, and refused to budge no matter what I did.  I thought this was finally the week that I was going to plateau.

I even tried to limit what I ate yesterday…bad idea, I know.  Well, it was an act of futility.  Since our training runs are starting to increase in mileage, I was more hungry that normal and could not stop eating!  It was all mostly healthy and it must have done the trick, because the scale finally showed a loss this morning! I guess I need to eat more?

30 pounds baby!

At my Weight Watchers meeting, I was excited to share my milestone!

30 lbs in 15 weeks isn’t too shabby.  I received a gold star to add to my ribbon.

 

Another exciting part of the week was our Saturday MIT run. I have been able to keep up with the 12 min/mile pace group…it’s actually feeling good!  :)  I believe the temperature difference from the Saturday before was about 3o degrees different.  I went from wearing capris and a long sleeve shirt to bundling up in three layers on top.  I was able to wear my new (smaller!) jacket that my mom gave me for Christmas.  I had thought I might need my face mask, but I feel silly in it and since it was barely above zero, I decided to keep it in my pocket just in case.

Better watch out!

How was your week?  Do you rock a face mask or decide to forego it in the name of fashion?

Finish Strong!  Amy :)
