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!
