As my friend Kelly likes to remind me, the scale is only one tool, one data point, to measure progress. So, what other pieces of information do I have?
Well, I know that I earned 27 Activity Points this week which is the most I’ve earned in several weeks.
I also know that some of those activity points came on Wednesday when I went out for a run before work and ran two miles at 15:21 average pace.
Obviously that might not be a big deal to most people, but as a slow runner who is trying to work on her pace, my ability to do this without even trying is a Big Deal.
I’ve also been much more diligent about drinking my water every day, thanks in no small part to this awesome insulated travel mug that BC bought me for my birthday.
The water bottle I have been using isn’t insulated, which means that if I don’t drink the water fast enough it gets warm and there is nothing worse than warm water. So then I just stop drinking it. But now I have a fun and fabulous mug to keep it cool throughout the day and I’m drinking frequently enough to need to refill it several times a day!
I made a decision a couple weeks ago to take the long view. That means there will be weeks like this.
Love from the ashes,
