I debated posting this, but there’s no guidelines for posting after
a multiple national tragedies. I hope this is the right choice. I’m beginning to realize that I’m so angry at the world this week, so I think I need to turn off the news and stop reading/commenting on blogs for a few days. Also, sorry this is a day late, WordPress went down for awhile last night.
Weight: 180.2 pounds (no change from last week, down 25! pounds total)
Waist: 32.25 inches (down 4.75 inches total)
Hips: 39 inches (down 6 inches total)
On diet: I ate too much. My mother-in-law was here and I was uncontrollably hungry yesterday. Also, my hormones went bananas again. I’ve been doing a really poor job of logging in MyFitnessPal because I was eating out so much. My goal is to only have one meal this week where I can’t accurately record in MFP. And actually start putting meals in again. It’s hard being so lazy.
NROLW cross-training: I’m pretty sure I’m putting on muscle mass right now. I’ve lost a few inches on my hips and waist this week, despite my weight staying the same. It might have been the 100+ lunges I did at boot camp on Monday.
On running: I did just over 10K for my long run on Saturday. It was by far my fastest ever time for that distance (although it’s not an official PR) and my knee didn’t hurt! My shoulders, however, were throbbing when I went below an 11 min/mile, which usually means I need a new sports bra. Mine are very loose again, but they are so expensive!
I also accidentally did a two a day yesterday. I had already done my planned 5 miler when our running store announced a run for Boston event. Mandy and I did a little over a mile in solidarity with everyone else. It was actually my first time running with the stroller, which is harder than I expected. It was really nice to be with the running community last night. You can see the news report on it here. Mandy and I made the end of the video, but I think it’s just because we have adorable kids.
Anyways, I promised pictures! My husband caught me trying to take selfies in the guest room mirror, so he took a few. I meant to take more, but the baby likes to shriek when I set her down, so I’m honestly impressed I got this post written.
Now to get back on board and lose this remaining 40-50 pounds!
