WW check in #8

159948224236393464_0XFX8GUB_fI refused to get on the scale this morning because it’s the wrap up of Whoremone week and well, it wouldn’t be a good thing to do to my psyche. Water weight is a mean jerk.

Last time I checked in, I talked about how my clothes were fitting better and how I could run more. I’m pleased to report that is still the case!

Here’s the hard/fast numbers about how things are smaller and why my clothes are fitting better (and how some need to be retired even though I love them, see below.)

(Whoremone bloat not factored in, this is what it is at the time of writing this, all numbers are from the initial measurement to today.)

Waist – down 6″
Thighs – down 3″ (each)
Arms – down 1″ (each)
Hips – down 3″
Mile – 11:30 minute per 1 mile (down from 13:20 for one mile)

retire pantsI can run for more than 30 minutes at a time with only short breaks for walking a bit to catch my breath (and the other day I ran 3.1 in 36:55). My hip flexor still is annoyed with me, but it doesn’t cry anymore (mostly).

Some days it takes some effort to convince me that I want to run or that once I’ve started I want to run further…but seeing those numbers above, it reminds me that it’s worth it and I can run one more song.

I’m not going to lie, I get really sick of the restrictions and having to track everything. When I do this, I give myself a break from it – even just for the day. Is this totally legit according to the plan? Not likely, but you know what? If I can make it work for myself more long term by doing so and not burning out, then hell, I’m going to do it.

Whatever works, right?

  1. you go, girl. get on with your bad self. 🙂 and btw, the pic of the pants is kind of funny, because that’s the fit I LIKE in my pants – totally loose, bordering on clown-like. 🙂
