Shrink-a-Versary END. – The Shrinking Jeans of Melissa


December 16, 2009 By Lissa

I lost .6 lbs this week. Which would be okay, had I not GAINED 5 last week. What is it with working out and huge weight jumps for me? I am a little frustrated, to say the least.

Some positives for this challenge:

*I am working out WAY more than I was previously.

*My back is hindering me way less than it has since May!

*I quit drinking coffee. And I was a BIG coffee drinker!

*I quit buying pop for the house. I only have it if I am traveling (which is what… never) or out to eat.

*This morning, I went to the gym and did 6.13 miles. That’s a SIX in front, yo.

*I have discovered I love racquetball. Injuries and all.

*I have committed to doing the San Diego Rock n’ Roll 1/2 marathon with some of my favorite people!

So, you win some, you lose gain some. Overall, I am UP 6.2 lbs. But I think I have gained so much more than just weight.

My Globetrotting mileage:

Actual Miles: 25.8 miles

Converted racquetball miles (using the conversion chart): 43.6 miles

EAS More Workouts miles: 22.44

So, using the workout converted totals, my mileage would be:  91.84. Not too shabby at ALL.
