Today is Wednesday, so that means it's the day we all dust off our scales (or in my case hop on like I do every freaking day) and report to the Sisterhood our ups and downs. How did you do this week? Feel like hugging your scale, or pummeling it with a sledgehammer?
Here are my stats for the week.
Weight on June 23, 2009: 165.8
Challenge Starting Weight: 146.8
Last week: 145.2
This week: 142.8
Change: down 2.4 (seriously?)
Loss For Challenge: 4.0
Total Pounds Gone: 23
I was pretty sure I was going to have a good weigh-in
hello, I obsessively weigh myself everyday but was pleasantly surprised by how much I lost this week. This tends to me my body's usual M.O. Lukewarm ups and downs and then a big loss. This means I will probably be up a smidge next week, but that's ok. I didn't set a specific weight loss goal for this challenge, but I'm still holding out hope I'll be below 140 by my birthday in August.
If you read my confessional yesterday, you know I was feeling pretty blah this week. I've had a lot on my plate and was feeling overwhelmed (Kim nailed it in her comment). Today is definitely a new day. I finished all the requirements for my 2 grad classes last night - Yeah Me! - and I just need to make copies and take it to the post office. I had a pretty good run this morning and have accepted the fact that Saturday's 10k is going to be a completely different race than my first 10k back in May. I'm just going to enjoy the amazing scenery (the run is along Lake Michigan's bluff and beach, complete with the requisite lighthouse view) and do my best. I'm sure I'll tweet about it and post the results to daily mile when it's over, if you are interested on how I did. I've thought about vlogging it, but the flip is pretty full of kid-fun right now. We'll see.
PS: I need your help. I'm working on a new playlist for the race and have $25 burning a hole in my itunes account, so send me your favorite running or workout tunes!
Way to go on the weight loss! I can't wait to hear all about the 10k. I actually use a podcast when I run races that is set to beats per minute to help you keep your cadence and make a specific time when you run. It worked for me!ReplyDelete
that's incredible bari!!! :) you da woman!ReplyDelete
most of my stuff is Jesus music. Lots of Stellar Kart.
Congrats, Bari! My play list is probably 180 degrees from Brooke's! :) I like a little punk with an occasional f-bomb in it to keep me going.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the great numbers! Glad you are out of the blahs...I was there too for a bit!ReplyDelete
My song recommendations...anything fun and upbeat from Glee and My Chic Bad by Ludacris! It's ok if you don't like my recommendations. Lol.
Wow, great loss!ReplyDelete
Songs for your playlist:
Break Your Heart - Taio Cruz w/ Ludacris
Airplanes - B.O.B.
Alejandro - Lady Gaga
You rock sista! Great loss. Being I'm not a runner, I'd be hard pressed to tell you good running songs. I could check with my daughter. She's my runner. She's even run Boston. I think whatever music you have, you are going to be awesome!ReplyDelete
CHECK & CHECK!! love to check things of the ole list!! wtg girlie!! NIIIIIIIIIIIIICE LOSS!!! I yo-yo too. music I am not help w/as I am still doing the c25k podcasts but I can't wait to need music too!!ReplyDelete
Way to go Bari!! Good job. I wish I had some suggestions for good music, but I could use some as well. I am not good at picking songs. Good luck with your race, you will do great. Besides you have beautiful scenery to make it pass quickly.ReplyDelete
1st, congrats on the loss!ReplyDelete
As far as songs, I love most anything Eminem for running.
