Last week was VERY stressful for me, so stressful that I ceased eating for over 36 hours and have only returned to a slightly normal eating pattern, one week later. I lost all cravings for any and all food and hence, I thought the scale might be kind to me. Although, in the past, extreme stress usually propelled me in the opposite direction- eating everything in sight and gaining 6 lbs overnight.
Anyhoo, this is all to say that I have a loss this week and I am going to do my damn-dest to keep it off and lose some more.
Last week: 166 lbs
This week: 164 lbs
Loss of 2 lbs
I haven’t been this low in over 3 years. THREE YEARS. This loss is bittersweet since I had to go through so much stress to lose it, but whatever- the weight is gone and I will take it and own it. I am only ONE POUND from claiming my “25 lbs lost button” from Shrinking Jeans.
Yes, since I joined Shrinking Jeans 1.5 years ago, I have lost 24 lbs- how awesome is that?!
Slow and steady wins the race, right?
Oh yeah, on the challenge front.
I am a water guzzler by nature, drinking 100 oz/per day at a minimum. So yeah, put me down for A LOT OF WATER. For miles logged, I logged 9.5 miles (8.5 running, 1 mile walking). In all actuality, I should have run more since I am training for that half marathon in November, but some ankle/heel pain sidelined me for 10 days and it was only last week that I returned to running, at a reduced schedule.
One more thing…….GO TRIBE BROWN!!!!
