Weight I have lost

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

February (and January) are done!

So the totals of February are behind us.  For the first time in 2 years, no one close to me died in February and nothing disastrous happened (2 years ago, my grandmother died on my bday; last year I lost my job, the dryer broke, the tile fell off in the shower, the doorbell broke and to cap it off my grandfather died).  Of course, part of this year was by design.  I couldn't bare to have G-dog put down in February or I would just crash and burn. Such as it is, that aspect of my life isn't doing that great anyway.  But I'll get through it.  Like D said, "We always do."

Anyway, I did a lot of running.  Much more than in January.  I think part of January's low mileage is because training for the half marathon started later this year.  Weight...hahahaha!  I've lost 5.2 since January 1, but I still have not lost the damn Christmas Weight.  I'm on a plateau.  Lose .5, .3 .2, gain 3 pounds. Oh well.  I'm still a lot less than I was last year.

I'm in Week 7 of HM training.  Only 9 more weeks to go.

Mileage (mostly running, some walking pre and post runs):
January 2010: January 2011
64.77: 38.21 (missed 7 miles of running in 2011)
February 2010: February 2011
72.93: 67.34 (missed 4 miles of running in 2011)

Nice stats. Keep up the good training. You'll get off that plateau eventually. Cheers!

My xmas weight has been pretty stubborn too. How come it goes on so easy?

I say we just throw the xmas weight under the bus. I have lost mine...but every weekend, a pound or two seems to creep back...so I'm in this up and down pattern...GAH!

I'm so glad this February was better for ya!
