- Week: 3
- Difference: +1.0
- Total Pounds Lost: -5.0
- Emotion: Best I could have hoped for!
As I’ve stated pretty much everywhere in my life this week, I knew I would gain. Leading up to the half marathon I was eating normally for Weight Watchers points, and exercising, and feeling pretty damn good about myself. I lost 6 pounds in two weeks. That’s awesome. But then the minute the half marathon was over, I was ravenous. I hear this happens from time to time, but my last 3 half marathons I was ravenous the day of, and then normal the next day. It must have been because I realllllly pushed myself at this race, and tried to run as long as possible. I plan on attempting run the whole damn race in March – Including this hell of a hill…
I ran the entire way up to that point and was all like “I’VE GOT THIS” and then I saw the hill. Actually it was behind trees so I saw a low incline and then people vanishing. I either though it was a sharp downhill or I was about to have a bad time.
So this go around I am planning on doing HILLS. LOTS OF HILLS. But I digress…
I’ve been hungry all week, then I come to find out some meds a new doctor put me on have a side effect of insatiable hunger. Not just a side effect, but a proven effect in over 85% of patients if the dose is off. So the Doc changed my dose and asked that I make a conscious effort to not eat outside of planned meals and snacks (the meds also cause issues with blood sugar so I have to monitor very closely what and how much I am putting in my body now – hence the going back to Weight Watchers). So I am chugging water like it’s my job.
That measily pound means nothing and it, plus more, will be gone next week. I’ll make sure of it.
I’m taking another rest day today. Honestly my schedule also doesn’t allow a workout today – because I want to enjoy an evening with my husband. I have to leave work at 3 to take the dogs to their vet appointment at 4:30 – with traffic that will put me home around 6ish? It will be pitch outside and normally Jason doesn’t get home till almost 7 so I *could* fit in a 3 miler, but instead I am going to make sure all my crap for school is done and ready to go. I have 2 more sessions for one class and 3 more for the other. These are exciting times.
Jason texted me during class and said “I can’t wait for this semester to be over. I miss you.” Being gone two nights a week is hard on me, but I imagine it’s hard on him too. At least when he gets board of SimCity (Yes… he still plays the original.).
So this Week’s Plan:
- Friday: Rest Day – Eat with in Daily Points Only
- Saturday: 6.2 Mile Run Outside (Treat Yo’ Self Day)
- Sunday: 3.1 Mile Run Outside
- Monday 3.1 Mile Run Outside
- Tuesday: Rest Day
- Wednesday: Incline interval run (Treadmill, until I find an adequate hill?)
- Thursday: 3.1 Mile Run
