Finally heading back in the right direction

Down 1.6 today, almost danced at the scale. Now to keep the momentum going in the right direction.

I'm glad I opted not to do the fun run as I want to focus that energy on 13 miles tomorrow.

Today as I walked home after weigh in and a quick stop at the grocery store it started snowing, it was actually snowing straight at me and I walked with big old smile on my face. One of my neighbors was driving by and she stopped and asked if I wanted a ride. I thanked her but I said I was all good.

I had the Yurbuds in and was listening to some classic Bon Jovi and just thought it looked so pretty.

It's been snowing on and off throughout the day, it's light fluffy snow so not really collecting. I left not exactly dressed appropriately so I stopped at Sport Check and got a Helly Hanson purple micro fleece, moisture wicking pullover. It will be useful.

When I got home I used my fancy new excel skills to create a weigh in chart, and it's a little all over the place so that's an anchor to keep that line heading downward.

I also looked at potential weigh in locations for Orlando and I'm starting to think it might be better to weigh in the day before I leave. In Orlando my options are after the 5K and before the Half or the day after the half. Now my plan is to rest after the morning 5K so I have good energy for the Half which is that night.

Going to my regular location would be 4 days later then my last weigh in but it just seems to work better. This would be the first time I weigh directly after getting off the plane too.

Well that's all I got for today, so I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.

WTG on the loss! I hope this week my scale will move in the right direction. I've been on a downhill spiral for a couple months. Getting lazy and eating whatever!

Aaaahhh! I am way excited for you that you'll be running. You are an inspiration...I want to do that someday too, most especially since I would probably be able to do it with my husband, as it's one of his dreams. I have a lot to do to get ready. Can't wait to hear how it goes for you! Good job!
