Anyway, I was drinking my coffee this morning (in my pj's) and my friend Jessica sent me a text asking if I wanted to go for a run with her. I almost said no, because I was comfy and I always run alone--but I had no real reason to say no, so I said sure. Her friend Alicia was going too--I've met her and talked with her before, but didn't know her very well.
I'm so glad that I ended up going! I only had 3 miles on the schedule, but we ran 7 (Jessica is running a half-marathon in two weeks). We were going at a nice, slow pace, though, so I didn't feel like I was doing too much. We ran through the State Park, and guess what flew right over us? The helicopters. At one point, they swooped down so low that it looked like they were going to hit us. We were talking the entire time, and I actually forgot that I was running--it was great! The time flew by, and it definitely made me want to run with other people more often.
Afterward, Jessica said she was meeting Renee (my good friend that I write about sometimes) for coffee, and asked if I wanted to go too.
So I came home, showered, and rushed to dry my hair and get dressed. I met them for coffee and we chatted for about an hour and a half. I'm really happy that I went--both running and for coffee.
Today was the first Wednesday Weigh-In that I've done in a looong time. I wasn't very happy with it. I definitely proved that eating less does not always equal a bigger loss. I ate 1,179 calories yesterday, and 1,196 the day before... and I gained a pound since I started counting calories a couple of days ago :( Usually, I eat much more than that--roughly 1,500 calories per day--and I drop 4-5 pounds of water weight the first couple of days. So today I'm going to make sure that I eat more, and I'm going to try and stick with 1400-1600 calories per day. Anyway, the results:
|Yeah, I should have cleaned my scale... and painted my toenails. Next week!|
|25.4% body fat :( BMI=overweight|
|Waist size= 28 inches|
So as I said, I had another low-calorie day yesterday. Not that it helped!
Breakfast- english muffin with pb & j; coffee
Lunch- Blueberry Muffin Smoothie
Dinner- Baked Ziti
Snacks- pistachios, Dove Promise, dried fruit
TOTAL: 1,179 calories
I loved the message on the wrapper of my Dove Promise. It was very appropriate for me, considering I love Sparkpeople!
