Say What?!?

One-sixty-nine.  Say what?!?  Oh, yeah.  One-sixty-nine!

I finally broke the barrier!  I got below 170 pounds.  This doesn't mean that 160 will happen, but I am one pound closer.  I have been good (-ish), I have started working out with the dumbells for 15 minutes on some of my non-running days.  I have been getting through my runs by visualizing that I am losing the weight.  I am excited!

You know what was extra special about seeing 169 on the scale?  PMS.  Yup, I am all bloaty and it still said that!  I can't wait for the "after" weigh-in!

I'm actually kind of happy with my body right now. I'm not skinny, but I'm skinnier then before.  I still have flab, rolls, whatever you want to call it.  I look in the mirror though and I see this good looking girl staring back at me.  I love my face.  My face is definitely thinner.
I love wearing clothes that fit!  I mean, I always wore clothes that fit me, but I can wear "skinny" jeans, you know, jeans that actually hug my body!  My capri's are form fitting, and the ones that aren't are already semi-too big on me.  I still try to make sure that my clothes are flattering and do not accentuate the bad curves. 
Being happy with my body does not mean that I'm done.  I'm still going to run.  I'm still going to try to eat my best (most of the time).  And I plan to start some short workouts at home with dumbells.  I am zapped from work this week, but I'm sure I will start soon enough.  My "wow" feelings are currently MIA, but that won't knock me down!

Face Palm!

Went to McDonalds. . .ordered a wrap. . .may as well have ordered a burger when you look at the calories and fat.  Face palm!

That's all for today. (Fail!)

That's how I feel; wow!  I wish I could feel like this all the time.

Last night I was eager for my run.  I did some great stretches before and after and I can feel a little pain in my hamstrings today and it makes me feel good!  The run itself has me puzzled because I can't, for the life of me [what does that saying really mean anyway?] figure out how I was managing to run for a half hour straight before my injury!  I ran with wrist weights too!  I usually take those off after the warm up (sometimes after the first run set).


I wish, I WISH I could feel like this all the time!  It's so satisfying!  I want these feelings to stick around for a while please.

Now, if only I felt wow like this when it came to housework!
