I don't know when or why I stopped doing formal weigh ins, but I think it was when I broke my jaw. I only did it sporadically after that, but I'd like to start doing it every week again. I always record my weight, my body fat percentage, and my waist measurement. I just weighed in on Sunday, so I wasn't expecting much, but here goes:
|142.5 pounds (-1 since Sunday); 24.7% body fat; waist=27"|
Jerry is working the day shift now, and he had today off work, so after the boys went to school, it was just the two of us. I had a 6-mile run on the schedule, so I got it done as soon as the kids left for school. I did the exact same route as Monday's run, and I had the same goal--to have even splits (maintain a consistent pace).
Monday's run was so great, and left me feel like I wanted more, so I was hoping to mimic that. And thankfully, I felt fantastic today as well! I didn't even glance at my Garmin, I just listened to my podcast and tried to zone out.
When I got back to the house, I stopped to stretch, and felt amazing. I think it's a combination of tapering (running fewer miles) and the fall weather. It's perfect! I just really hope that I have a run like this during the marathon. I looked at my splits, and they weren't nearly as consistent as Monday, but they weren't horribly far off, either:
This calculated out to 8 PP. Not worth it. A cup that small is just a tease for me. ;)
I did find something that someone mentioned on my blog recently (Mary, I think...?). These breads:
The Caramel Apple flavor is 3 PP, and the Pumpkin Spice is 2 PP--per slice. That seemed like a lot at first, but they are pretty thick slices, and probably the same amount of bread as a Bagel Thin, which I was spending 3 PP on. When I got home, I had a slice of the Caramel Apple one, and it was really good! I'm going to try the Pumpkin Spice one tomorrow for breakfast.
I love seasonal finds like this, but I hate that it's seasonal when I discover I love it! ;) Have you found any good seasonal items recently? Please share!
