Tales from beyond the scale

Sometimes I just need to step away from the scale and evaluate what else is going on with me. This came up because I was complaining to the trainer that I only lost 5 lbs. in one month and she pointed out that it was 5 lbs. I wasn't carrying anymore. It's a GOOD point too because carrying less weight will really help me as I'm running down Peachtree in 100 degree heat.

After my training session on Monday, I came home and walked the dogs a mile before my husband got home. I was thinking how that mile used to be the extent of my exercise. I would be totally wiped out and out of breath. Now it seems like nothing - even after the trainer. Even when its 98 degrees.

Today I ran all the way around the golf course at sunrise. 3.2 miles. I still walk up one nasty hill but I remember a time where that distance was unfathomable. I even have a cute guy that works on the grounds of the golf course that waves to me every time. I've been really consistent and even my Nike + noticed.So the countdown to the race begins. The race I said I would never do. Never say never!
