Daily reminder

Whenever the topic of my weight loss comes up in conversation with people I've just met or people I rarely see, my proof is always my driver's license. The picture was taken a few years ago and shows my about 40 pounds heavier.

Then:


Now:

It is my daily reminder of what I've done and how hard I've worked.

Alas, it may be time to get a new picture taken. I had some trouble with it at airport security when I went to New York. Plus, it may be nice to change the weight on my license which currently says I weigh 135, but is 8 pounds off.

Had a weigh in yesterday and am down about a pound and a half coming in at 127.8. I'm so close to 125! It feels great.

This was also my first week of training for the half-marathon. One of my biggest struggles is going to be getting up before work on the days I won't have time to get a run in after work.

Today was one of those days. However, I successfully woke up and got to the gym beforehand. And, you know what, it really wasn't all that bad. The dog had a harder time getting up than I did.

And, I have felt great and energized all morning. So, I'm going to try and think about how great I felt after every time I don't want to get out of bed.

I got three miles in yesterday and another three this morning. I have three scheduled for Friday (I'm going to try and go before work again just so I have Friday night to do what I please.) and four for Sunday, for a total of 13 miles this week. It's really not much more than I usually do, so it won't be that difficult.

I'm also going to try and get to a yoga class on Saturday for a day of relaxation and I'm sure my body will love the stretching.

P.S. Did you know it's already Wednesday!?!?!? I heart four-day weeks!
