After having a mini-meltdown last night because I was disgusted by how my stomach skin sagged while doing planks (you're welcome) and because my shoulder still isn't better, I'm feeling more up today. I've accepted that my body is going to want to reside in the 135-138 range, but I still hate that it will never be "perfect" in my eyes. It is impossible to lose the amount of weight I have (30 pounds this time around and close to 80 pounds if you count baby weight) without having some extra skin. I need to get over it and I'm trying.
In any case, I'm working on it. As for the weekly projects this week, I've completely failed, but I'm ok with that. Right now, I have 2 main goals: get through Marathon May with my 25k, 5k, and 10 mile races within 3 weeks (squeee - I'm going to cross a finish line on the 50 yard line of Soldier Field!!!) and then maintain my weight in the 135-138 range. I had a couple of great, non-scale victories this week, too! I ran 5 miles on Sunday in 49 minutes (9:55 pace) and 4 miles on Monday in 39 minutes (9:45 pace). I have finally broken the 10 minute mile
Here are my stats for the week:
Weight on June 23, 2009: 165.8
Challenge Starting Weight: 138.8
Last Week's Weight: 137.0
This Week's Weight: 135.4
Change: down 1.6 (I have no idea how that happened)
Challenge Change: down 3.6
I'll leave you all today with a few shots of Snowmageddon 2011 :) For those of you living in the warmer areas of our country, this is what you are missing! Stay warm everyone!
