Somehow, I have not posted my weekly WW weigh-in since March 9! It’s been crazy around here… Work always keeps me busy, I ran the Sarasota Half Marathon and ElectroDash in March, squeezed in a few T25 workouts, my aunt was in town, we went to Las Vegas, I went to Orlando for my first Super Saturday event, and Iron Girl last weekend – my 10th half marathon. Whew!
Since my last WW post on March 9, I have been to 4 meetings, including yesterday. Yesterday was my first week back after missing 2 meetings. I always love the meetings, but when I return from missing a couple in a row, it’s a reminder of how much I miss them when I don’t make it. And how much I need them not for my accountability.
So catching back up, here’s where I’ve been…..
Ironically, my last check-in here was the exact same weight as yesterday. Clearly, there has been a lot of fluctuation in my weight this last few weeks. I also may have eaten my way through Las Vegas, but I enjoyed every minute of it. And at the end of the day, I am still WAY below my highest of 178.
It’s been a bit of a challenge getting back into the swing of things since getting home. I may still be in vacation mode. But I am determined to get my mind back in the game and get to my goal.
Where I need the most work is getting back to tracking. I need to make that a habit again. We went grocery shopping on Friday and being prepared will help with that as well. It really all boils down to a healthy mindset.
In addition to the eating part, I need to get back to running regularly. Hubby and I went out to the causeway this morning and ran 3 miles. It felt great. I have missed going out there weekly and I hope we can make it a routine. I am also setting a goal to run 2-3 times during the week. I need to build my base back up for when marathon training starts in July.
I will say, though, despite the ups and downs on the scale, I am still having fun with buying new clothes. I have probably bought more new clothes in the last 6 months than I have in the last 3 years. I used to hate it. HATE it. There is nothing worse than shopping for clothes when nothing fits right. And now I am stepping out of my comfort zone and buying clothes in colors and patterns I would not normally buy. But I certainly don’t want to wear the same thing I’ve always worn. What fun is there in that?
Yesterday, I scored 8 cute new tops from JC Penney, all for $67. I saved a whopping $120. One thing I don’t’ want to do when clothes shopping is break the bank, so I have to get the most for my money.
As soon as I have more rewards built up and a more coupons, my next purchase will be more shorts! This girl is absolutely wearing shorts this summer.
How do you handle setbacks in your weight loss?
I actually just joined WW this Friday:)
I have been very neglectful of my weigh in posts. I haven’t gained any weight but I haven’t lost any either. March was such a busy time and April hasn’t been better. I am hoping to start anew this week and have a weigh in post for Friday. I have never been part of weight watchers (can’t afford it) but I like their approach!
You are doing well
Keep up the great work. Can’t wait to hear your Iron Girl recap. I ran the 5k and had a ton of fun! Would also love to hear all about your Vegas vacation. That location is still on the bucket list of places to visit.
Have a great week!
Just saw that you have a Vegas post. Off to go read it….
