View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
I stepped on the scale 224...Whew. I was just thinking please be just under 225.....yeah. I am just 3 pounds off from about a month or so ago....cannot remember.
I have to remember why I want to continue this weight loss.
1. I am going to do this marathon in November and I will do better if I lose some weight.
2. for training I will be also running 4 other races for my training plan (2 halfs. 10k and a 5k)....if I drop some more weight it will be much easier on my body to train.
3. I like how I look and feel when I eat healthy and am at a lower weight. I actually enjoy buying new clothes when I am under 220 pounds. I can shop in regular stores....have many more options. If I am over 220 pounds I am 1 step away from plus size stores only.
4. OK. I might need some more ideas to keep me motivated to loss and not just settle for maintaining.
Got a green check yesterday! here is to 2 days in a row for green checks. Had a great workout yesterday and a good 4 mile run this morning. I think I can finally say that this cold is gone! I can put the intensity back into those work outs.
Also, the pre prep work I did for lunches and dinner was great. Yesterday I made Turkey buffalo burgers. I made the patties on Sunday evening. All we had to do was grill them and done! great healthy gourmet burgers on a week night! Everyone loved them!
