Weight Update and Goal

Even though losing weight has been slow, it has been steady. This morning I weighed in at 173.2 which is my lowest weight since August 2009.  My blog entry last month on the 4th was written at 180 pounds.

Since the beginning, I had set a goal of 169 as my first big hurdle and 154 as being my ultimate goal.

I had hoped to weigh 169 by the Resolution Run which is now (sadly) just 16 days away.

Losing 4 pounds in 16 days can be done, and I am not giving up yet, but, Christmas is in just a few days and is followed shortly by New Years. If I miss my goal by a few pounds I will still be very proud of what I have accomplished.

TODAY: Ran 30 minutes on the treadmill, and went faster than any other 30 minute treadmill run. Was it fun? No. It was work, but I am not running again until Christmas Morning so I had to really make it count. :)

Running Christmas Morning?

YES!!! My daughter will still be asleep, Shelby and George won't be home until around noon so I am treating it just like any other Sunday morning workout. Trainer Bob would be proud.
