I weighed myself at home yesterday morning and my scale showed me up 5 pounds. Given that we celebrated Oktoberfest over the weekend I wasn't surprised but I was disappointed. When I got to my meeting I sort of dreaded getting on the scale because as long as I didn't weigh-in I could still hope that I'd pulled off some sort of miracle and lost weight. However, no. Though the WW scale was a little more forgiving than my scale registering
It is 8 weeks until Thanksgiving (not to sound like the comic strip Cathy ... ack!) and our meeting topic was about setting goals we want to achieve before Thanksgiving. I was apparently not listening to the instructions because I set four goals and apparently all you had to do was set one.
- Run my 15K on Nov 5 (this will be my longest race to date and I'm super excited about it)
- Hit 200 pounds lost (might be a stretch because it's about 11 pounds)
- Stay within my daily points target
- Include more strength training (this is actually kind of fun for me yet I only do it once a week)
So, my bestie Jen and I are going to really buckle down and focus. Not necessarily go crazy because we know that won't be long term but I also know that I've tweaked the program slightly and maybe I tweaked it a little too much (see: #3). I am hoping to be able to report back better results next week and naturally have an instant topic built in!
On a completely unrelated note ... in case you missed my last post I am hosting a give away! All you have to do is donate to my fundraising campaign for your chance to win a SPIBelt (see the original post for more deets/photo). Every $5 will get you one entry to the raffle and since I am going to have more than one raffle you'll want to donate early so that you're entered in all of them!!
