Hi friends, I hope your day is going a little less sleepy than mine. I just can’t seem to get moving and I’m pretty sure I hit the snooze button over 20 times this morning. It’s a good thing Pat would be able to sleep though a bus crashing into the apartment.
How was your weekend?
Mine was pretty good. I worked, played, sweat- but some of that sweat was just from it being stupidly hot out.
130.0 - First of all; Yay! I don’t think I’ve weighed 130 since kindergarten. I lost 1.6 lbs this week, which compared to recent weigh in’s, means I kicked some serious butt. 130.0 also means, I hit my mini goal, so I will be going to get my nails done tomorrow.
I like to set small goals for myself, it’s much more beneficial to me to think “I need to lose 10 lbs to get to goal” instead of “I need to lose
66 a million lbs to get to goal”, I’ve used this technique from the start and it has been awesome. I’ve been doing 10 lbs increments, but at some points I would change the goal if I was struggling just so I could get the jump start from the satisfaction. The plan was to give myself something small when I hit each milestone, a lot of them have gone by without me buying anything, that’s because just hitting it was a present to myself and that was a good enough feeling.
But I really want my nails done this week, so, I will.
I only have 11 lbs left, but I’m still not going to call that my goal, right now my goal is 125. In January it felt like weight was falling off, blinking could have been considered exercise, now I’m working way harder than ever to see small changes. This last 11 lbs is going to be a long road.
So this week I’ll get my nails done, at 125 I’ll…. do something. Then I think I’m going to have another goal in between 125 and 119, just because I’m excited for the end, and I like giving myself presents.
I know what my final Prize is but What do you think I should give myself for hitting the two goals in between?
On another note; I signed up for this:
And just because you may need a laugh; I once again face planted during my run. Last time I got a concussion, this time I just scraped my hand and knee up pretty bad. I got right up and ran 4 more miles, at one point I felt something dripping down my leg, turns out it was blood.
And if you were wondering, yes, this did happen in front of a group of construction workers. Fantastic.
Have you ever taken a fall while running? I’m becoming a pro.
