It has been a long couple of days!! First, let me catch you up on weigh in day. I have reached a loss of 24 pounds and currently stand in a dead tie with my dear hubby. Twenty-four is our magic number this week. I am still the ever faithful, never go over, leave the extra points alone person while Bill holds firm to his stretch those points as far as they will go and use every last weekly point available kind of guy. I just don’t know how he manages it. I exercise, take advantage of our gym membership, walk, walk and than walk some more and he just comes home and relaxes after a hard day at work. I keep warning him that it will eventually catch up to him and he better do as I do.
I’ve managed to reach a 7 mile long walk this past week and stick to the 4 and 5 mile training days with the gym on off days when I’m feeling up to it. I’ve consistently told my sister to keep up the cross-training, so I don’t dare slack off in that area. Dec. 17th will be here before we know it, then March and then our ultimate “Diva” event at the beach in May. After that I will be looking to walk the next walker friendly marathon. I’m looking forward to spending some time with Cindy and doing a little traveling with her as we experience the fitness geek in us. I was so proud of her last Saturday. She ran her first 10k race and took first place in her age group. She is certainly my sister!!! A chip off the old block. I sat by my phone the entire race and anticipated her call and received it within minutes of her expected finish time. Awesome!!!
My crisis this week came in the form of a toothache. Major, minor and excruciating pain over a couple days. Trip to the dentist and loaded with antibiotics and pain medication. Suffering a slight sore throat and congestion along with an awful ear ache. Hopefully after the first of the year I can see a specialist and have it fixed. In the meantime eating minimum points should be a breeze since it hurts so dawg gone much! My most embarrassing moment this week was becoming ill at work and having to have someone drive me home. Did I make it all the way home in one piece? yes, but not without having to pull over and throw the rest of my guts up. Nothing can stop me from my training workouts though and I know
It’ll all be worth it!!
