It’s that time again.
Time to step on that scale and see what kind of progress I’ve made since September.
August was epic and I ran in the Hood to Coast relay race (check out my Best Of Page for all the links!). September came and I had my first run since the race only to find out I was injured. Having to take 6 weeks off from running was devastating. I mourned a little, whined a lot, then got back on my feet and decided to set some new goals. I would continue swimming but I would also add a new weight lifting routine. I’d been neglecting weights for a long time while I focused solely on running.
I recently posted asking Is it Working Yet? Well this morning I got my answer!
YES! WEIGHT LIFTING IS WORKING!!
I stepped on the scale this morning and saw a huge change. In fact, I was so surprised I stepped off and then back on just to make sure the scale was working….Then I wondered, “What did I weight last month? Maybe it wasn’t 148? Maybe I’m mistaken…”
Because today the scale read 145.2!
3 Freaking Pounds baby! I haven’t lost 3+ pounds in one single month in YEARS. Years. Not since I was still overweight and had a lot to lose. I am so happy the weight lifting has been working. What a great start to the day.
The measurements weren’t very different from last month but I am so happy with seeing that surprise loss, I’m good with it!
Dinner last night was also pretty good. Michael bought two New York Strip steaks for dinner and a loaf of olive ciabatta bread (one of my favorites).
Even though I wasn’t really in the mood for more wine, I did have one glass of Pinot Noir with dinner. It just seemed like a good combination with the steak. We’re dangerously low on healthy food in the house–no fruit, veggies…So raw carrots and cauliflower were our side dish.
QUESTION: Have you ever had a super surprise on a Weigh-In day?
