Well it has snowed here in Michigan, and I am wearing my wool coat, so it's officially winter up here! It was only about an inch, but it took me 3 hours to get to work instead of the normal 1 hour! The first snow always confuses both drivers and the goverment officials who decide to send the salt trucks out -- hence the 3 hour drive!
Winter means back into the gym for my weekly long runs -- which as you all know is not that fun on a treadmill. But now I'm working on speed more than miles to build up my cardio more, so it will be time well spent.
I did 4 miles this past Saturday and only had minor moments of boredom, since one of my gym buddies was beside me. (I know 4 miles is not long, but I have to build back up my mental stamina to put up with the boredom! This coming Saturday will be 4.5 miles, then I'll keep adding til the end of the year.)
I'm also running during the week now, instead of just cross-training. My legs and knees are strong enough now to handle multiple days of running, so that will help my miles.
I think I mentioned Weight Watchers a few posts ago. I had my third weigh-in this week, and I really thought it would be a week of +/- a pound -- no big loss. But lo and behold, I was down another 2 pounds.
Considering I've been on a weight plateau for about 7 months, despite all the workouts and running, it has been wonderful to lose weight again!! In three weeks, I've lost 9 pounds! That's "Rae numbers"!!!!!
Hope everyone else is doing well, moving forward, and focused! Let's do this!!
