Day 73:198
Miles wogged last week: 7

I am somewhere between feeling sad that I did not lose any weight this week, and thanking God for the miracle that I did not gain 10 lbs with all the crap I ate. I didn't do too bad.. my portions were small, but what I did eat was hardly healthy. I guess it evened out in the end and left me at 198 for another week. I didn't do a whole lot of exorcising either. In fact I am 3 miles short of my usual 10 mile/week. Weight lifting was weak and I had no enthusiasm. For a little while yesterday I was starting to feel like I wanted to quit...and that somehow I could just stay at 198 for the rest of my life and be happy. Sure I feel good right now, I look better then I did 17 lbs ago.. but come on! I am not going to be happy at this weight if I am still here in a month... so lets get moving.

Today I beat my own record.. I finally ran a 5K!! It was on my treadmill, but still! I have never broken the 3 mile marker before... I did it in it comes out to 17:09 a mile. A snails pace compared to some of you out there.. but at least I did it!! Finally a time I can try to beat!!

My upper body weight lifting this morning was still lacking *umph*... but it felt good and I am glad I did it.

This Friday is the last day in the month of November..(I know, yikes!!) Which means it is the day for my once a month measurements... This week needs to be flawless if I want to see a difference from last month. So, here is to having a perfect day at a time!!

(If your wandering how my Thanksgiving went at MIL's...well, I would like to follow my mother's advice and say nothing at all, since I can't say anything nice!)

Delurking here to say that's AWESOME that you ran 5k!! Who cares if it was on your treadmill, you still ran it and you rock! Someday I hope to run 5k on my treadmill too (right now I'm doing good to run for 90 seconds!) I love reading your blog - keep up the good work!

Woohoo on the 5k! That's a fabulous milestone to hit.

I totally identify with your feelings about Thanksgiving weight no gain/no loss. Realistically, I think it's going to be really hard to gear up for a major weight loss effort in the month of December. But we can sure try!

Hope it's a good week sweetie.

Doesn't feel great to break a personal record. I love the feeling. Congrats on keeping it under 198. I read somewhere that American gain on average of 7 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas!!
