Food of the Week

Nothing special this week. I actually felt like my eating was off and I wasn’t careful enough so I spent the week hoping my run made up for some of that (which apparently it did). I need to work on hydration majorly, that area is slipping again.

I ran 4 miles in 01:01/15:09 pace on Sunday and it was a great run – the first great run in a long time. Don’t miss my post about it.

don't give up

I was more than surprised this week. I did not expect to lose anything. In fact, I expected to see a gain – and I even told a couple of friends that. So, when I weighed myself and actually found not only did I not gain, but I reached my 5 % weight-loss goal, I was ecstatic. Proof that you should never, ever give up.

Until the next mile marker,

      That is really important too- and one that I have been known to forget. Thank you!

  2. Sara, congratulations on the 5%. I am sure that you already know that we celebrate a 5% loss at WW because it is a signifcant enough loss to make substantial health gains for many people… blood pressure for example. Good for you!

    Hope you all have a fabulous 4th celebration.

      Elle, I actually did not know or maybe did not remember that so THANK YOU! I was just wondering why it was significant other than I needed a little push to keep going. 😉 Thank you and enjoy the weekend too.
