– I broke my weight loss plateau and also weighed the lowest I have in about 5 years. (Probably longer, there was a long period in my life where I refused to get on the scale.)
– Finally found my love for running again! Yay. I went from being an exercise hater to a person obsessed with running. Then I started slowly gaining weight (5lbs to 10lbs a year). I got so overweight that I started hating movement and fitness. I didn’t even realize that I started hating running again. I was in denial. I would sign up for half marathons thinking that it would motivate me to train, but instead I would NOT train and then hate myself and not be race ready. Then I’d have to muster enough energy to pretty much walk/jog 13.1 miles. Absolutely awful.
– I did pretty good with my planning, logging and tracking this week, especially on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
– Thursday, Friday and Saturday were pretty meh meh. I didn’t do great, but I didn’t do awful either.
