I'm doing okay holding steady around my goal weight - this week I'm at 126.2. That's a non-run weight (I'm running today at lunch) so I expected it to be a little higher.
For me now, its all about non-scale victories...and set backs. I've had each this week.
First off let me say, even though I'm in a crappy mood, I'm feeling skinny today. Amazing what a pair of pants that actually fit you can do!
Late last week I went shopping for birthdays and Christmas, and tried on a few pairs of pants along the way. While it varies from brand to brand - I bought my first pair of 4s this week! I'm officially a J. Crew 4 and a Gap 4. We'll not talk about the other stores.
My set back this week (as most of them usually are) was/is mental. Jay and I were going over our calendar for the next couple of months. He's got clients coming into town and wanted to know which weeks were off limits - ones that he had prior commitments that he couldn't break.
I told him about a few parties that we're invited too, that he could miss if he had to work. Then I told him the two weekend dates that were off limits - November 5-11th (our anniversary trip) and November 21st (my half marathon).
"I know better than to set up any showings our anniversary week, but I'll just have to see about if I can make it to the half marathon or not."
My jaw dropped to the floor.
"Um, no. There is no seeing. I want you there."
"Well I'm not going to turn down a chance to make money. Besides you're not doing this race for me."
Please let me say first that he's self employed - a real estate salesman. He's able to set his own hours. Also, (I'm not trying to brag, just explain why this is so upsetting) he's already made the money we need to live on this year. He could not make another dime this year and we'd be good.
So me asking him to put aside one day. Not even that - one morning, isn't really asking all that much.
It really hurts my feelings that watching me cross the finish line of my half marathon isn't a priority for him.
I've talked to my parents, and they plan on being there so at least I'll have pictorial evidence of my half to share with you guys.
So anyway, that's my week. How did yours go? Did you shrink? Be sure to head over to the Sisterhood and let us know all about it!
