Don’t think twice, it’s all right

I’m posting from the train this morning!

Completed c25k week 4 today. Still loving my early morning runs. 6 a.m. And I are becoming good friends.

However, another crazy week provided for another crazy weigh-in.

Let’s just recap:

  • 11-Jul – 164.5
  • 18-Jul – 162.5
  • 25-Jul – 164.5
  • 1-Aug – 162.5
  • 8-Aug – 165
  • 15-Aug – 163

This week the scale read 166.Not fun, but it is what it is.

This has never happened to me before, but I’m sticking to what I know works for me and not looking to change anything up right now.

Honestly, it would have been strange if I didn’t gain weight this week, with all the alcohol and ice cream I consumed over the weekend.

Maybe it’s because I’m tired right now, but for the first time in a while, the numbers aren’t bothering me.

I’ve put my body through a lot the last couple of weeks. A new schedule, sugary drinks and food, a serious lack of sleep, and now running again.

For the first time since I started losing weight, my health is not first on my list of priorities, and I can’t say that I regret it.

I had been saying for a while that I needed a break from the constant attention to what I was eating and how I was exercising, and I definitely have been taking that break.

It’s been a good few weeks, but I’m ready now to put the wine glasses away and clean up my diet of excess sugar.

For now though it’s back to my coffee.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Funny you should mention your weight and how the number doesn’t bother you today; I saw your instagram’d tweet and the first thing I thought was, “DAMN – she looks good!” It’s just a number, after all. It doesn’t define how you look or feel.

    Enjoy your coffee and your day!

    • Thanks :)! I think it’s def part of the reason that I don’t care much about the number is because I am really liking how I look lately. Having some new clothes always helps with that haha.

  2. I think a few lbs. are worth an amazing weekend! And like you said, you’re looking good, girl! The picture of you before your run, with the sun just coming up in the background made me really miss NJ–just looked like the very beginning of fall to me, that late August morning: dewey, a little humid, a little cool…I love NOLA, but I’m really going to miss the fall.

  3. You look great! I feel like I just wrote a rather similar post this morning- it’s a challenge to find a balance between your health being a priority but not being the top priority- especially for those of us who have only ever lived in the extremes.

    Keep it up girl!
