So apparently I've lost my blogging mojo. I keep thinking "I need to blog" and then draw a blank. Sorry folks. It is what it is.
I'm looking forward to some family time Thursday. I have every intention of enjoying my day but with that being said, I won't be going nutso. The plan is to run 5 miles and lift Thanksgiving morning and then eat/drink in moderation. My 2 pitfalls are usually my grandma's (from scratch) rolls and dessert. I'll be enjoying one of each and savoring. I also know that I cannot let it become a multi-day extravaganza (this is an important point for me).
It feels good to have a plan to execute.
I made it through the potential pitfall of birthday cake last week without any issues. Made the cake, had a few licks of frosting, ate a couple bites off kiddos plate and moved on. Yay me :)
Sunday was "measurements" day. I'm happy to report that I've lost another 1" on my waist, 1/2" on the bust and 1/4" on my hips. I don't know if I'm going to hit my 149 lb goal by Thanksgiving but if I don't, I'm okay. The scale is a fickle creature. I'm losing inches, getting faster and stronger every day. Those three things are more important to me than a number. I almost broke an 8 min/mile pace last night on my 5 mile run (without paying attention)...that's HUGE to me. Woo-hoo for non-scale victories!!
Finally, I'll leave you with this little gem-
