Well, I decided not to weigh in for a few weeks. We're in Michigan and I don't want to weigh myself on a scale that's not mine and end up falsely disappointed or excited. So I'll just wait and see what I weigh when I get home in a few weeks.
Eating well is going to be TOUGH these next next few weeks. I come from a family of big eaters. Our family gatherings always include big, elaborate meals and my uncle is an incredible cook. Recording my calories is helping, but it certainly isn't going to be easy. I just have to keep focusing on the end results and reminding myself that being thinner will be far better in the long run than this one cookie!
Running is going pretty well. I've completed week 4 of couch to 5K training, but my ankle is REALLY hurting lately, so I'm trying to space out my running to every other day. I have a bit of a bad feeling about it, but I'm just going to take it slow and then make a trip to the doctor when I get home. If I have a stress fracture or something and have to take 6 weeks off, I'm going to be in trouble. But I'd rather have to take time off now than in October or something. Either way it'll be detrimental to my half marathon training, but it's more managable to rest sooner rather than later.
I enjoyed a nice 9 mile bike ride with my hubby over the weekend. He wanted to go out for a run and I needed to get some exercise without stressing my ankle, so I biked while he ran and it was magnificent. Great workout and nice quality time.
