Before I get to my weigh in I want to toot my own horn. On Monday I ran 10.1 miles in 1:45 and a few seconds. Now, I know for some people that is a SLOW time but for me it was utterly amazing. I can truly say that I haven’t run at that pace since February. During this marathon training I’ve learned quite a bit – about myself, about training and most of all about being happy with my accomplishments both big and small. I am pushing myself physically and mentally and will come out at the end of the marathon victorious. In the meantime, I am celebrating my victories both large and small!
Now to the scale – yes, it has moved but in the WRONG direction! I am not worried about it, I was on a business trip over the weekend from Thursday – Monday and my food choices that adhere to the paleo lifestyle were not readily available. I did have some good eats- including lobster and some great Thai shrimp but I did indulge. This weekend I am off to Vegas. Yeah. Not really thinking the scale will move the right way this upcoming week either! But rather than beating myself up I made a motivational (I hope) video and will be back on track after this two weeks of travel are completed. I may be a little down (figuratively) but I am NOT defeated!
