The last day of August. 8 months of 2007 in the wash and what have we done with it? Just a thought…
3 miles on the mill this a.m. The knee doesn’t really hurt but feels tight, as if it might be swollen. I might get on the mill or go for a walk tomorrow. Sunday will be an off day. The U.S. 10K is on Monday — can’t wait!!!
WW last night was not too too bad, not as bad as I expected. I felt like I’d gained 10 lbs. but it was only 4.4 since last month. However, over the last 20 months I have gained that many lbs.  I’ve hit my topping out point and the plan in the back of my mind has always been that if I ever got to this point I would start attending weekly meetings again until I get back to a reasonable weight.
So, I stayed for the meeting last night. It was nice, a whole new group of people than the last time I stayed, of course — that was a long, long time ago. I didn’t recognize anyone, even the instructor is new although I have met her at weigh-ins before. It was good to have the refresher. I got the week 1 materials again — they are different. I’ll read over them this week. I have to drop .4 lb., [that’s 4/10 of a lb.] before next Thursday’s meeting or I’ll have to pay 😮 I don’t see that being a problem.
I’m not beating myself up over this, it’s not defeat. I just had some parameters that weren’t unreasonable and I’ve reached the limits of those parameters. I had a plan for that and so now the plan kicks in… No problem.
I’m looking forward to seeing the lbs. drop each week, being a healthier me, and enjoying the meetings.
The BONUS = this will probably take a good deal of the pressure off my knee and I’ll be in better shape for the Thanksgiving 1/2 marathon. It’s a win win situation all around.
