Weigh-In ... Vacation Gain

Today's Weight:  170.0 
Loss/Gain:  + 2.5 lbs.

Yes, I know it's Wednesday, but I am posting today because I will be out of town again on Friday with my girls for a long weekend trip.

I'll be honest in that I didn't want to post my weight, because it's up.  It's okay to see it myself, another thing to tell about it.  Unfortunately, (or fortunately, I'm not sure...) the scale is down two pounds from the day we returned from the kids camp, but still....170...hhmmm...gotta be careful.

So, even though the scale is up I have always wanted to be honest on my blog and decided I wouldn't miss more than one weigh-in this week.

While I'm being honest...I have only worked out once this week too.  (So much for the August goals of trying to workout all three days I'm home during my vacation weeks.)  That workout was a wonderful run in the evening on Monday, which leads me to a silver lining on this cloud of a gain...

My run went great!  The sun going down made it seem cooler and during the last half of my 3.03 miles I kept seeing a pace around 10:00-10:15 minute mile.  Woot!  My hip didn't hurt at all afterwards either.  BIG WOOT!!!  I really think the core strengthening I've received from the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution workouts has helped me with my running.  

So, the scale is up, my food and exercise haven't been something to be proud of on a healthiness blog, but I know exactly why and it's not forever.  I'm okay with a bit of vacation gain and I know it will come off soon enough.   This is life.  :)

I hope you are all doing well.  I will try and catch up with everyone's blogs next week.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wow, you did a ten minute mile? That is amazing! I am sure you will get it down again. It's the end of summer and I think it will be easier once the fall routine starts again.

    I wanted you to know that I nominated you for a "beautiful blogger" award. Because you are!
