Today is Stick with it Saturday I had a good week. I finally saw the scale move again. I am up to 83 lbs lost. It is amazing to me how motivating it is to keep seeing that scale move. I get so easily discouraged when I hit a short plateau (even though I know better). I earned my 10% keychain at Weight Watchers this week. I joined in late April I believe, so I lost 10% of what I weighed when I started. Now I have to set some new goals. I have some milestones coming up that I'll share about when I reach them.
Last week I said I thought I might sign up for my first 5K which I did right after I posted. I will run in my first 5K race next Saturday. This morning I was supposed to go on a long run but I woke up with a sore throat and didn't think I was up to it. I decided I would just run 3.1 to see what my time would be. I hadn't done that in a long time. I ran the first two miles in 26:00 which is the fastest I ever ran the 2 miles on that route...but I got a stitch in my side and had to slow it down for the remainder of the run. I ran the whole course in 40:18. My goal is to finish in under 40 minutes next week. I've had some leg pain this week so I'm nervous that between leg pain and getting a stitch I won't have a good run, but I really want to try.
Goal for the week: stick to the plan!
