Day 21:203

Wow... 3 weeks today! I honestly don't think I have ever lasted this long on a healthy lifestyle!! LOL Lets keep it going!!

So a 1.5 lb gain today.. I'm starting to notice a pattern. When I eat a lot of bread and salt.. then I usually see a gain the next morning. What does that tell me? Quit eating so much bread and salt!!

I'm not going to worry about the gain... today I will focus a little harder on my eating and water intake!

I also feel good today because I ran my regular run today.. and yes, I had to push freakin hard to finish it.. but I did! I got off the treadmill feeling pretty good about myself. I also had my lower body weight lifting circuit this morning.. so my legs and butt are really sore. Tomorrow might be a forced break from running.. we'll see how they feel in the morning! I am really hoping to see that 199 mark on Monday.. but I'm not going to freak if I don't. So it takes me another week.. eh.. I can do it!

In the back of my head is the thought that I might sabotage myself again. I have been close to Onederland twice before.. and twice before I gained it all back + more. I think that may have been the cause of yesterday bread/crackers/popcorn splurge... but I woke up this morning with a little more *umph* to get it done. I'm sick of 'trying' to lose weight damn it.. I'm doing it and its going to get done!

Congrats on 3 weeks. Super awesome. Bet you feel good too. Impressed with the exercise front! Love that you're running and doing a strength workout. (why am I not writing full sentences?) Keep it clean on the eating side and you'll definately hit the single century.

When I hit ONEderland I struggled abit. Kinda didn't feel right for me to be there - but I know that you can do it.

unless you ate 5200 calories worth of bread - I'd say most of that is because of the salt. If you do have lots of salt - be sure to drink lots of water.
I'm so very impressed that you hit your 3 weeks! What an awesome, awesome job you've done. Keep up the great work. You're really putting yourself first now - it is so lovely to see - you SO deserve it!!
