My Weight Loss Ticker!

Weekend in review!

What a busy weekend! Saturday I stopped by for a quick weigh in to get my April sticker on my lifetime bookmark - since I only have to officially weigh in once a month. I couldn't attend a meeting this weekend due to my Sunday activity. Then I went out with my sacfit running buddies and we waited to start our run until our fearless leader came by on the trail - when he passed us he was on roughly mile 8 of his 50 mile race! He looked great and I heard that he finished and did well! We started our 8 mile run and my asthma got the best of me at around mile 4.5 - I had to stop and take my inhaler and get things under control. The good part though is once the meds kicked in I was able to resume my run and just ended up running alone on the way back - not really a big deal, but it was kinda lonely.

Sunday we got up and went to the Zoo Zoom 5/10K race - My hubby, Oldest son and future daughter in law was running it and I was the cheering section along with my younger son who pretty much spent most of the race bored out of his mind. It was so weird being at a race that I wasn't running in! I'm happy to report they all did well!

After the race we walked around the zoo for a bit and looked at the animals and then we went out to lunch and then back home. I spent the rest of Sunday in bed, I ate too much of the wrong type of foods (too much fried and greasy) and had a tummy ache. I feel much better today - but I sure can't eat like that all the time but I used to and I'm not sure how I survived!

This morning I was supposed to do my swim class but it was raining and I didn't want to get up super early and drive over 45 minutes to find out that they had canceled the class - there were also forecasting thunder showers - so I will get Wednesday's class in I hope! I hadn't planned on the rain!

The rain we had in Bay Area yesterday was very, very heavy. We drove to San Francisco from San Jose. I have never seen so many accidents in one day. Three (3) were rollovers. Today does not look much better.
Hope you can get to your swim class on Wednesday.

I felt the same way after the fried food! My body doesn't like it anymore, which is a good change! It doesn't really like beef anymore either. Thanks for being our cheering section in the cold! I had fun!

as a runner and healthy eater sometimes I have my bad days of eating unhealthy and my body just doesn't like it anymore, It's funny how much I used to love eating and now I actually care about what goes into my body. Good Job you are amazing!!
