Healthy You Challenge Check-In

Weight: 316.8
Total Weight loss: 33.2

This entry'll be a quickie.

I'm back down again after my weekend mishap, almost to where I was, which goes to show how much body weight does fluctuate each day, and why I don't freak out about it when it happens anymore. (Please do not confuse this with complacency, however.)

It was all take-out eating yesterday, but I managed easily to stay within my ranges comfortably. I drank a ton of water (as I am doing again today). This morning I had my first 25-minute straight run, and I completed it successfully and didn't even keel over afterward (nay, I rushed to MapMyRun.com to enter my stats!). This is a big milestone. Now I feel like a real runner.

I'm feeling good today. I had a nice lunch out with an old classmate at Panera Bread, and successfully maneuvered my way through the menu to enjoy a 1/2 Roast Beef Asiago sandwich and a yummy bowl of Black Bean soup, not to mention lovely catch-up conversation -- I hadn't seen Carollan in probably a year!

It's a gorgeous day outside, so hopefully this evening I can (as my mom puts it) play in the yard and get a bunch of things done.

Hope you're having a wonderful day. There's always another one coming up, if not! :)

I'm so stinkin' jealous of your running right now! Please, take a few steps for me while you're out there, k? Ok, so it's not all about me (hmph)...congratulations on your weight going back and on your running success!

Girl, you ARE a runner!!! I'm so happy for you and all that you've accomplished. Especially your ability to come back from a minor slip up.

I am still in awe of the way that you've embraced running. You inspire me so much, but I need to get myself to start the C25K program. I keep saying I will, but I really need to JUST DO IT, as Nike so eloquently put it.
