I am hoping everyone had a great week. Mine was kind of accidentally great. It started awesomely with a Running Mates reveal post followed by the Doctor Who premiere at the movies with a really great friend whom I don’t get to see as often as I would like so there was a lot of catching up. On Thursday, my gym decided to cancel all our classes while the floors were being redone so I took my running outdoors on Friday and while it was pretty rough, I still managed. On Friday night, my Vibram Five Fingers shoes arrived, a perk I got via Klout so on Saturday I tried them out and did 5 miles walk/run at a local RiverWalk park. Today, I weighed-in and found out that I managed to lose the 2.2 lbs gained thanks to shark week and a tiny bit more for good measure. I now have 14 days to lose 1.8 lbs and win this month’s round on Dietbet. Wish me luck (and the ability to make good choices).
On other news, I am currently between sizes and it sucks but it’s also a little awesome. Lately, I can feel all my size 12 pants slipping down as I walk. Even fresh out of the dryer they’ll be slipping about an hour after wearing them but then my size 10 pants are cutting my circulation.
Being between sizes is such a drag but on the upside it pushes me to work hard so that I can finally fit in comfortable clothes. I’m also very excited that I am less than 10 pounds away from overweight status (BMI < 30). I know that BMI is only one measure but it’s the one I’ve been waiting for so long. My body is changing in great ways and I am losing weight at a good pace so this BMI number is the one objective thing I want to conquer and at less than 10 lbs I am super excited to soon be able to say that I am no longer obese. I am hoping that 2014 will be the last year I’m obese. Here’s to hoping.
Food wise I was really good this week. I had a rather slow week exercise-wise clocking barely 4 hours but I am looking forward to September and the new classes I’m planning on trying. Blog posts to come on that soon. I hope everyone has a great week and, as always, thanks for stopping by.
