Yes, Hello… I am alive! I meant to do this last week, but was feeling yucky so I'm just now getting around to updating you that I am still alive and all is well. :)
October 31 Weight: 161.0
Loss/Gain: + 0.5
I hovered between 159-161 pounds this last month. Woot! I think this first month of maintenance went well. I do still have the desire to work on losing at least another ten pounds, but I must say that not having to think about losing weight this week relieved some pressure from my life.
I did not go crazy with my food, as my weight shows, but I just allowed myself to live like I always do without having to think "I need to see a loss on Friday!". It was a nice feeling, especially with everything we had going on this month.
Today I went running for the first time in three weeks and it felt good. Our weather has been a little weird and it was 70 degrees out when I went, so it was a little warm for my taste. I took it nice and easy since I hadn't run in a while and since I'm recovering from a bad head cold.
The sun was out and it was a lovely day. I felt so much better when I was done. Later when I was running errands I felt the workout in my legs and it was good feeling. My life is getting back into a normal swing of things again and the cold is draining away. Glory!
Hopefully tomorrow my day will allow me to come on here and share some good news with everyone. :) In the meantime...
Thanks for stopping by!
