WOOT WOOT!! I met my first post-marathon goal of making it back into the 140's this morning. OH YEAH!! When I finished the marathon I was 157.2. I made a goal but I actually didn't put a time limit on it but it was to get back into the 140's even if it was 149.8. I have slowly been getting closer and I stepped on the scale this morning for my usual Friday weigh in and I saw 149.6 shining back at me. I did it several times you know to make sure it still said the same thing and it did.
I can totally tell in my mid-section and in my clothes. Amazing the difference 7.6 pounds makes.
So my next short term goal is 145. I really feel like I am losing the fat and holding on to the muscle which is my main objective. I am anxious to continue in the downward direction.
This will give me some momentum going into the weekend and help me stay strong. No splurges at all. Not even a small one for me. If I can have today, Saturday and Sunday on plan then I will let myself have something small for a treat at the beginning of the week. I have to earn it though.
We are headed to see Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum in concert Saturday night. I can't wait!
