Weekly Weigh-In

Well, nothing exciting to report.  I GAINED .2lbs overall last week. 

HOW?  I have absolutely NO freaking clue!  In the past 4 days I ran 9 miles!  UGH! 

Oh so frustrating and I have no idea why.  I wish I could say I cheated or went over board or something but I don't think I did.

Oh well....this is where I would normally have given up but I know after 3 months that this is just going to happen to me sometimes.  We are women and our bodies are messed up sometimes.....that's my reason!  Take it or leave it.  These are the moments when I have to remind myself to focus on how I am feeling and not what the stupid scale says. 

Last night Miss H had her first night of soccer and afterwards I ran to a meeting and right away a girl that had no idea I was even trying to lose weight told me I looked amazing.  Which is hilarious when I think about it because my hair was a wind blown mess, face was super oily and the clothes I had on was so baggy I looked frumpy....but I'll take it!! 

soccer practice!

This is one area where losing weight is going to suck for me....having to buy new clothes.  Which is VERY exciting, I won't complain but being a single parent, I don't buy myself a lot of new clothes.  Now I'm gonna be forced to, is just not a fun idea when I don't really have the funds to go buy myself clothes that I know in 6 months to a year I won't be wearing anymore.  Hopefully my old clothes I just took to a consignment shop in my office building will sell and I'll be able to take that money to buy me some new clothes guilt free! 

Didn't run this morning, just didn't work out.  And it was ok with me, I fell asleep on the couch waiting for Kristina to come and she must never have showed up because I didn't hear her!  ha! 

Here's to a crappy rainy Tuesday!


  1. I know that after I've increased my mileage, my weight goes up because of inflammation in my muscles-- they hold onto fluid as they heal. Maybe check after your rest day today. Either way, you LOOK AMAZING! Scales are liars. :)

  2. Yes scales are liars! You are so right!
