Wow…I have a ton of posts I need to do but just haven’t made the time to do them. I haven’t really talked about my weight loss efforts lately, except for this whiny post, and I think that is affecting my scale. When I was blogging about my workouts and food every day I was losing pretty consistently. I stop talking about them and I stop losing weight. Definitely a correlation! I need to keep my task at hand as close to the forefront as possible to keep myself focused.
So…where were we? How about doing a quick view of my workouts for October.
Yeah, that’s a bit pathetic looking compared to September. However, I had a valid excuse. I had my 4th dilation and the doc told me to sit out for 7-10 days. That being said, I was still slightly inconsistent with my workouts after that too though. I joined a challenge set up by Juliann on Daily Mile to run 10 more miles in November than I did in October. Given that I ran 51 miles in September and only 29 in October, I think I can hit that number!
I also started a competition with Amy where we get points for working out, eating under our calorie goal and hitting 1 macro goal (mine is keeping carbs at or under 150). We also get bonus points if we hit all three in a day to help make up for the times where we weren’t so good! Yep, we also get deducted points when we fail to eat under calories or hit our macro of choice. Seeing as how this started yesterday, November 1st, I’m already negative in points! I knew that going in though because I never eat well at the quilt fest! The competition ends on Jan. 31st and the winner will get to pick the reward, which we haven’t decided on just yet! In February, we’ll be running the Hot Chocolate 5K. Amy wanted to do the 15K, but I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to hold to the 15 minute pace minimum for that distance. So…I’m dragging her to the 5K!
Amy and Jeremy did the 5K Foam Fest with me in October. That was a blast. I still owe y’all a post about that one. They finally sent me the digital pictures (the company, not Amy and Jeremy!) so I’ll be writing that up pretty quick like. No…really…I will! 😀
Umm….what else….I’m sure I’m missing something but that’s ok. I’ll update this site as I go. You’ll be seeing a lot more posts about my weight loss efforts just because it’s something I need to do to keep myself accountable!
Have a great Friday!!
