Weekly Weigh-in #23 + 7 miles

Starting Weight (12/1/2012): 232.2
Last Week: 188.8
Current Weight: 190.4
Change Since Last Week: +1.6
Total Change: -41.8
Height: 5'6"
Goal: 149

The gain was expected, mainly because I wasn't eating on Friday like I was going to WW, but instead fueling for a 7 mile run. But the week was not good to me, or should I say I wasn't good to myself, so I would have had a gain anyways.

Last night I hit the grocery store and made sure I was stocked up for the week - Since having 2 kids in activities is new to us, we didn't plan well for ourselves. The kids can exist on simple foods, but I found myself hungry and grazing.

I am not going to make sure I have the following in the fridge at the end of each weekend:
--Hard boiled eggs
--Grilled chicken
--Hot dogs (for the kids and the husband)
--Cut up veggies and low-calorie dip
--Cooked shrimp
--Cooked pasta/grain

I slept horribly last night - I was so nervous about my run. Not sure why! I was doing it alone so I didn't have to "perform" for anyone.

I had only done 7 miles once before, last November, and I did it in 1:29. I really didn't know what to expect to day. I chose to try to wear my belt for the first time, with no water attached, as I wanted to try some chews. I chose to carry my water carrier - big mistake. I hate that thing! That is what all these practice runs are for.

I tried 2 Cliff Bloks after about 45 minutes. I am not sure if my dental work will be able to handle them. GU or Beans may have to do. They went done all right and I drank almost all my 8 oz of water with them.

I did the 7 miles in 1:24 - 5 minutes faster than November. I'll do another 7 miles next weekend on Mother's Day.

  1. Great job on your run! It is interesting to see what we learn on these training runs. I didn't like the blocks stuck in my teeth. That's what my friend loved though, because she could lose track of time while she worked the chews out of her teeth. lol

    You're doing great!
