I am thrilled & tickled to death over this morning’s weigh in. I didn’t even realize Thursday was upon us so this weigh-in is very candid – and yes, I did skip my week 30 weigh in.
….INSERT PICTURE HERE…..
Well folks. I’ve recently “upgraded” to Windows 10 and once all the bugs are figured out it will probably be a pretty good operating system. I spent about 2 hours last night after the Win10 upgrade upgradeing the upgrade with drivers just so this great new operating system would recognize the fact that I have a 2nd monitor plugged into my laptop.
For whatever reason, there are still gliches with pictures and the pics I would normally post with my weigh-ins are all showing up as broken links.
Essentially – I weighed 239.4 today which is the exact same weigh in I had 2 weeks ago but I am extremely happy about it. You have to understand that dropping weight is NOT a linear process and that’s part of the reason I predominately concern myself with my monthly average and never get too worked up over any single weigh-in. What’s most important is the overall direction in which you are heading not what any snapshot static weight says on any particular day.
During this process, we may see glimpses of what lies ahead. Two weeks ago I saw a glimpse of the direction I was heading but today we may start to take this new low weight as a part of reality. It’s real. This also gives me a pretty firm foundation for a belief that I could actually have an average weight this August in the 230s which in itself is pretty remarkable.
That Loonies Midnight marathon I did a couple weeks ago really threw me for a loop. Running 26.2 miles during a time when you’re body is normally used to sleeping is a formidable challenge. I had a host of 1 mile runs leading up to that marathon and I’ve had mainly 1 mile runs since, with a few 5k distances thrown in. I’ll be getting some longer distance runs in this month and believe over the next couple weeks we can see even lower weigh-ins.
Gotta run –
oh & btw- the running goal for this month is 117 miles – also I’m on a running streak, 36 days straight now and I’m looking to make that streak 62 days on August 31st.
and – I’ve taken on a VLOGGING challenge – a VLOG is a video blog. I’m doing something called VEDA which stands for Vlog Every Day in August. I created a new channel on YouTube called … i can run a minute and have been vlogging and learning on that channel. i really do have to run but will probably try to embed some links or videos in upcoming blogs.
