I have a Dilemma…
Thursday, September 22, 2011
It’s a good dilemma to have I suppose, although it does leave me feeling a bit sheepish.
So last weekend, I weighed in, recorded that weight, and my measurements. I’ll do the same thing this Sunday to keep consistent. Last weekend, I weighed 229.6. I expected the gain from the family visit and allowing myself to over-indulge far too often on too many not-so-healthy choices.
I weighed this morning, because I’m nosy. I weighed 222.2. Now, we all know it’s not logical for a body to drop 7.4 lbs in just 4 days. At least, not this body, at this stage of my journey.
Why sheepish? I guess because maybe I should have been more patient, waited out the water weight, etc. and so on. Then again, I have been kickin’ big ole bootay this week, hitting the gym three nights in a row so far and sweatin’ my patoot off in a serious manner.
Having said that, I am considering suspending my attendance at the group workout class until AFTER the Girlfriends’ in October. I’m still pretty frustrated with the class and how it's being run, and made some poor decisions about the state of my legs and my muscles, and now because of those poor decisions, my legs are shot. I’m supposed to run 14 this weekend with the Tribe as a last long run before the Half. Fortunately, I have an extra week on the rest of the team (they’re running the Portland Half on Oct. 9, I’m running Girlfriends’ on Oct. 16, one week later) so if this long slow one goes badly, I have a chance to recoup and try again next weekend.
Anyway, there’s always a chance that I could go hog wild and eat back on 5 lbs between now and Sunday. It’s not likely of course, but we just never know, do we? Heh.
