View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
I had a nice post marathon week and it ended with a beautiful reward this morning, 215.5 on the scale!! I stepped on and off the scale 3 times to confirm. I will not change my CK current weight until next week when I see it again. Only 1.5 pounds more to go and I will be back at the lowest I got to a year and half ago, 214. 214 has been my mini goal for a while. I was only there for about a week when I saw that number but I want to hit it and not go up again.
Last week I did not do any exercise until Saturday. My body felt totally back to normal by Wednesday. I wonder if this change in routine was part of the loss this past week? I do have to admit that I did not do a very good job about logging my food. I really need to get back to logging so i don't see the scale go up again.
Saturday I did a strength training and step aerobics class. I was a little worried about my legs for the step class but they felt great. Sunday I did a great spin class. I will do my first run tomorrow or Wednesday (depending on the weather, it is supposed to be rainy here the next day or so) and tomorrow I meet with Tim, my running coach for my post marathon training plan.
I thought after the marathon I would be not run again for a long time. I am happy because I don't feel that way. I really want to run again mentally and physically! I see people running and I just can't wait to get back into again.
My girls wanted to go to McDonalds this weekend. We took them and I ordered a quarter pound burger meal. Boy my tastes have changed. I only ate half the burger and 1/4 of the fries. The fries were good but the burger was gross. It was nice to left food and not have a battle in my head....it felt so natural just to throw it away!!
