This was an amazing week. It started off with one of the best strength training workouts I have had to date and ended with the best run of my life on Saturday. I still did not see a payoff as far as the scale. It can be frustrating, but I am seeing such a difference in all other areas of my body and fitness levels that suddenly the scale becomes less of a significant means of measuring my success. Regardless of the results - I am so proud of what I accomplished.
Over the last 2 weeks I have not lost any weight however I have now lost a total of 3 inches! This week alone I lost another 1.1 inches. I was able to wear 2 size M jackets that I bought earlier in the year, a big change from the size XL, I was wearing this time last year. I am making progress, slowly but it is showing. I feel lean, and strong and my clothes are fitting better than ever. Now it is time to press on to another week and focus on the next 16 days before we leave!!
