So I’m in Week 10. I thought I was in Week 9, but I’m in Week 10! Yikes! That means I have one week less than I thought to accomplish my goals. That’s not good news. The good news is that I not only dropped back down to 129, I also dropped below it! I’m 128.5 right now. (Disclaimer: as I explained to Christina, I don’t have a digital scale, so I’m either a whole number or a half number. Right now, I’m below 129 but above 128, so that’s why I say 128.5.) I want to finish at 120, so I’m going hard core these last few weeks. That means high protein and two- or three-a-days. I’m doing really well on the workouts, but I need to improve the diet. Like today, I was so busy that I ate only once until dinner. That’s not the plan. I need to get solid on my food plan. Like now.
I’ve been doing really well running. Christina has had me doing track workouts. Last week, I did 800s. My times were 4:03, 4:09, 4:15 and 4:14. I was shooting for 4:00, so I didn’t make that goal, but I’m still pretty pleased with my times. I’m faster than I thought, and if I keep doing the track workouts, I will only get faster. Tomorrow, Christina and I are doing another track workout. We’re doing a pyramid of sorts: 200, 200, 400, 800, 400, 200, 200. I’m looking forward to it.
Oh, and did I mention that one of my friends who only sees me once a week told me today that I now officially qualify as “thin”? Made my day. I think I still have plenty to lose, but I’ll take those compliments and run track workouts with them!
I'm sort of slow in keeping up with your workout efforts (perhaps because they make me feel guilty? not examining that too closely!). Just wanted to say congrats on the huge weight loss! Once you get down below your goal, toss the extra few lost pounds my way? 😉
