Showing the scale who's boss!

Yesterday morning I weighed in and lost another 1.5 lbs for a 31.5 lb loss. I meant to blog but we we had a busy day and then I had computer issues. Last night it was between fixing the computer issue (simple fix, just some stuff not plugged in) or having some wine, and I chose wine.

This morning I weighed in and lost another 1.5 lbs! My total is now 33 lbs lost. It is beyond me why I got stuck at 28 for a month, and now the last 5 lbs have fallen right off. I don't understand, but I ain't complaining either! I have kicked up my jogs on the treadmill, running less distance and more speed. I was excited to do a mile in 11:39 the other night, and last night I did it in 11:21 (although I don't really count it, because around 8 minutes I got a horrible stomach cramp that I had to stop the treadmill for).

This is really exciting. Maybe I have finally found a groove, for the time being at least. And knowing that I have real time from here on out to work on my jogging and prepare for the 5k and push myself so that I keep losing weight...well that is awesome. (I say real time because I am now officially back on a normal schedule of 40 hour work weeks rather than 50-72 hour work weeks. It is going to be AMAZING!!! I did that overtime for 7 months...I am ready for a break).

So anyhow that is my exciting news. 33 lbs now. I am off to update my ticker!!!
