176.6

I had to get my run in a little late this morning due to a meeting, so it was super hot and humid. Yuck! I did run/walk intervals for 3.17 miles, avg pace of 11:19 min/mile. Man that chocolate almond milk tasted great when I was done!

I had a small lunch and missed my afternoon snack due to another meeting, so I was super hungry. Then my husband called to tel me the utility company busted a gas line in front of our house and while everyone was safe we had no gas for our stove, so dinner was off. I got some fried chicken on the way home. Not the best choice, but I was too hungry to care.

Lesson learned: find the time for a snack, especially on workout days. 7 pounds to go to get from obese to overweight. Kind of a sad goal, but an important one.

I just have to think this bump is hormones or water retention... In other news I managed a run this morning with the toddler in his regular stroller. My DH is a teacher, so I've been able to get my runs in without the stroller all summer. The first run back with a stroller was brutal! 3.14 miles at a 2/2 interval avg pace of 11.52/mile.

Oh well, I'm glad I did it. I bought a jogging stroller but he refused to sit in it without screaming. I guess I'll try again next time.

If the scale doesn't start moving down again I'm owing to have to get stricter with my diet.

I did 5 miles today !

2/2 intervals at an average pace of 11.02 min/mile. Then I edged and mowed the yard. Whew!

My bike ride yesterday ended up only being 3 miles. I tried to go during the baby's nap, but the weather was bad. Then we tried to all go together later in the afternoon and got poured on so we had to turn back. Oh well, no big deal.

Next run is scheduled for Tuesday.

It sounds like you are doing great! I just stated to get my act together in hopes of walking a Princess. I don't think 2013 is going to happen (today was the first time I went out For a walk!!) but 2014 for sure! Looking forward to following along!

Thanks! Just get a plan and keep moving!

177.6 ... Guess I'm stalled on the weight loss. I've been eating 95% well, but if the scale doesn't start going down again by the end of the weekend, I'll start tightening up again on my diet.

Yesterday I ran 3.29 miles at 11:26 average pace, 2/2 intervals. I've been having strange pains in my calves/shins that come and go, like zings. I am a little worried about stress fractures, but I can jump up and down on each leg without pain and when I used my electronic massager on my legs, it helped. I think it might be muscle knots or something. I'm going to replace my run tomorrow with either a walk or a bike ride and then see how Sunday's run goes...

I think using that massager on my calves and shins really helped, no more weird twinges. I did a 3.5 mile run/walk on Friday that was awful. I was pushing DS in a regular stroller as he hates the new jogging stroller for reasons unknown. We ran past a loose pit bull that completely ignored us but still unnerved me. I tried to come home a different way, but ran into traffic without sidewalks, so I had to go off road, ended up dropping my phone in a ditch, had to go back to find it... Ugh. After that, I took DS to a gym session (baby gym, lots of equipment to play on) and the one unpadded thing in the whole place - a wooden ladder- fell right on top of my foot and bruised it up really badly.

Saturday I did a 14 mile bike ride. Kind of windy but there was the tiniest hint of fall in the air. Dew point under 70 for the first time in months!

Today I ran 5 miles in less than an hour. 2/2 intervals at an avg pace of 11:27 per mile. I ran straight for the last mile . My foot actually felt better running than it has walking all weekend. I guess it's just a different motion. I ran without my calf sleeves and my shins feel ok so far.

I tried to be 98% good with food yesterday and I think that helped with the scale. I hope it's going to start moving downhill steadily again.

In other news, I got two of my ADRs for the Princess Half Marathon trip made today. Early dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern the day of the race. Lunch at Yak and Yeti on Monday. I haven't been successful getting Le Cellier on Friday before the race, so I have Via Napoli as a backup. We'll probably do be our guest Saturday for lunch.

175.8.

Well, the baby is sick which stinks. I stayed home with him yesterday and he nursed most of the day. I think that pushed the scale down!

I ran today 3.17 miles in 36 minutes. I was disappointed in my speed since I was doing 3/1 intervals. But the heat and humidity were awful and I was up for hours during the night on Sunday and Monday nights due to the aforementioned sick baby, so my energy level was low.

I did manage not to eat terribly, which is a big accomplishment because being exhausted is a big trigger for me to eat carbs and junk. I'm thinking about cross training for the next two workouts and skipping runs for a week to help avoid injuries. I could bike and maybe try the elliptical or just walk with no run intervals. I am just so afraid of getting sidelined by an injury!

I did 3.05 miles at an avg pace of 12.11 min/mile pushing DS in his stroller on Friday. Ugh it was hot and humid. Is summer ever going to end??? I also saw a teenager get arrested after running his truck into some mailboxes.

Today I biked 16 miles in 1 1/4 hours. Avg speed of 12.67 mph.

I needed the bike ride because I ate Mexican for lunch, including chips and salsa. Mmmmm.

The baby is starting to get betteer after 4 nights of fevers and a strange foot rash. The fevers are gone bit the snot has arrived! After a misdiagnosis of athlete's foot they are now saying it's a viral rash. Ugh, I just want a well baby soon.

I don't know if my weight stall is a normal plateau or if I need to tighten up on my diet... I want my diet to be a forever diet, not something I go on or off, so I don't want to be too strict if possible.

I ran my own unofficial 10k today! 6.23 miles at a 2/2 interval in 1:10. Avg pace was 11:15 min/mile. I'm really happy with that result. I've been waiting to sign up for a real 10k the weekend before Thanksgiving. I really wanted to see that I could do the distance first.

I also did yard work and mowed! Of course I ate chicken tenders and a biscuit for lunch. Hope it wasn't too much. The scale will tell!

175.2

I ran 4/2 intervals for 3.06 miles at an average pace of 12.04/ mile. Pushing DS in his regular stroller as he still refuses to ride in the new jogging stroller. Ugh that's super hard work. I may have to reschedule my runs so I don't have to include DS.

Food's going ok, I've been much hungrier than usual but I'm trying to focus on healthy snacks to keep from getting too hungry and making bad food choices. Still heading down on the scale but slooooowly!

Whew, I rode my bike 19.53 miles in 1:30. The run keeper app says I burned 1,126 calories, but I'm thinking that's a little high. I got rained on throughout the ride.

Of course I'm starving now! I can tell that increasing my exercise past the one hour point is going to create some challenging hunger. I'm trying to get ahead of it with protein rich snacks. We'll see if it works.

It's strange, but since the scale losses have slowed down, I've gotten a lot more comments from friends and coworkers on my weight loss. Maybe I'm building muscle?

174.4

We had big thunderstorms last night so the baby woke up and nursed most of the night, so that loss might be from that!

I ran 6.23 miles at a 4 min run / 2 min walk interval. 11.01 pace! It felt ok, the humidity was awful, 75 degree dew point. Yuck. I did feel pretty sick after I got home so I think I need to stop at a water fountain at the halfway point and maybe consider some sports beans or something on the long run. I did consider that the hour and a half bike ride yesterday with lots of hills might have been too much the day before a long run.

We tried to get lunch at a healthy spot but it was packed so I figured the universe was sending me to Popeyes! I guess a bad meal once a week is reasonable.
