Spring Chick Challenge WK3 and weigh in results

I stayed exactly the same this week, which is preferable to a gain of course but a tiny bit disappointing.

This week I had 248 points (+17) and earned 25 Activity Points so I had 8 Activity Points that were left.

A few things happened this week that's not part of usual routine. On Monday with my all day meeting in Calgary I did use the majority of weekly points. I do think they should be eaten but I usually use them on Saturday which is my weigh in day.

Yesterday I earned a whopping 13 APs and I typically don't do that the day before weigh in either, usually that happens on Sunday.

A major win is I've now tracked every single day since Dec. 31st, so that's two weeks today. That's my longest stretch in some time.

My water intake wasn't fantastic this week. I think I need to add a sticker to the calendar for that. I've been adding a sticker to a calendar for every day I track (a little smiley face) and for every day I get activity (a heart). I usually get at least a litre to a litre and a half but not hitting my 2L goal.

So next week the goal is to keep tracking and get water.

It was a good meeting today. We talked about planning which is so key. Also discovered my leader will be on vacation for 3 weeks. I hope we get a good sub. I will be missing one weigh in when I leave for the race. I had debated on attending a meeting in Anaheim but I need to look into where they are in relation to where I'm staying.

Tomorrow the deep freeze is supposed to hit which complicates my life. I might not run tomorrow and do yoga instead as if it does snow and it's that cold it might be a better day to just stay home. It's been so long since it's been cold.

Next week my schedule is a little off as well. I fly home on Wednesday to attend a team event and then work all day in Calgary on Thursday.

So I should run on Monday as I won't be running on Wednesday then somewhere between Friday and Sunday get the last long training run in of 10 miles.

I had thought I'd zip up to a mall across town that has a Disney store to try to figure out how I can "Tinkerbell" my running ensemble. I did think I might make a running tutu, however not sure if that will be more of an issue and left a little too late. If it does get super cold tomorrow that will probably go out the window but then I'll have to do it next weekend. I do wonder if this cold spell is coming as all the weather reports said it start this afternoon and so far nothing but never take winter storms for granted. They can swoop in fast.

Everything for this trip needs to be completed no later then next weekend which is still a week before I leave but as I fly home on Thursday the 26th, get home around 7:15pm ish and then turn around and fly to LA the Friday on a 10am flight. I'll have to plan next weekend very carefully.

Had a lovely coffee with a friend today and picked up some GU for the race and 10 mile. Still debating on what to do as I just had Gatorade with me on Friday and felt fine.

I have having a bit of a treat day today - still tracking of course.

I hope you all enjoy your Saturday, talk to you tomorrow.

Sometimes maintaining is a win. Especially when things get thrown at you. am sure this coming week will be better...

You seem to be doing great. When I was training for the Breast Cancer 3 Day, especially the few weeks before the event, and I was walking 7 hours straight on the weekends, it was difficult to actually see movement on the scale, but my body shape changed.....for the better!! On my training days I would eat 45 to 50 Points, if I didn't I had no energy for my training!

At least you didn't gain! Have a fantastic week!

Yep. Not losing is as important as losing depending on the context. As in not losing focus, not losing ground. With me if I lose my brush or bra I go psycho. Lol
