Weigh In - 10%!

You guys, I finally did it!!! I've lost 10% of my starting weight!

In fact, I not only met that goal (which was 254.4) but blew right by it and got another 5lb sticker AND lost a daily point (not necessarily a good thing, lol)!

It's the little things, I tell ya.

I don't normally get around to posting on the weekends, but this was too exciting not to share. Now, if only my weight loss always went like this; I'd be at goal in no time! I'm not getting my hopes up though--yes, I did the work, but I know I'm most likely not going to continue losing at this rate.

Karinne had her first ballet/tap class on Saturday morning. The place is just a few blocks from our house, and right next to City Park. I walked her to her class (which is 45 minutes) and then went for a run--something I never do on Saturdays. It was only 9 am, but it was already so freakin' hot outside that I made it about 1.6 miles before I felt like I was actually going to pass out. I knew it was going to be hot, so I did 3:1 intervals, but it was still too much; I also pushed myself too hard in the first couple of intervals, I think, so that probably didn't help either. Next weekend, I'll just do 2:1 intervals and take it easier. I think I'll also invest in a little water bottle that straps to my hand because water definitely would have helped! In any case, I still ran on a Saturday, which I never ever do--so woohoo for being active!

  1. Congrats on the 10%!!! What a milestone!!

    Great job on the run. :) I hate the heat.

  2. Wonderful weigh in and great job on the run! We are already sweltering here in Louisiana, aren't we? Boo to humidity! But seriously great job pushing out of that comfort zone!

  3. Congratulations, Christine! Get a water bottle - don't want you to get dehydrated! Good job on the Saturday run too!

  4. Nice job - both on the 10% and the running! :)

    I carry water with me when I run in the heat - it's too easy to go from warm to dehydrated in seemingly an instant.

  5. Congrats!!! I agree with everyone else - this time of year you've got to be careful. Be sure to get a water bottle!

  6. Congrats on 10%....way to use that 45 minutes to do something good for yourself...even on a Saturday :)


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
