HYC Check In

Well, shoot. I am up .6 this week – just barely, barely holding on to my 70 pound status at 220 even. I’m not too surprised, as I missed two days of exercise. Oh, and there was that trip to the bakery on Sunday – where I had 5-cheese Sicilian style pizza and a chocolate brioche. Divine – wouldn’t go back and change that, even if it puffed me up a bit.

Get back! Back on Track! Last night I walked the Ding, and even jogged a little. I will never understand runners. Bobbing along, feeling the weight of my hips and feet as I try to propel myself down the path – I did not receive an endorphin packed rush, nor the thrill of challenging myself. I felt only the drag of my 220 pounds and the sense that this is not the exercise for me, so I should stop being an imposter. Back to the gymnasium for me!

Hope everyone had a successful week.

Even though I run a lot, I never experience that high until my run is over. Hmmm, maybe that is a sign. Your bakery trip sounds devine. Jealousy, can you feel it in the air?

Pizza and a brioche? Oh yes, take that teensy little gain and tiptoe away. :) So glad you enjoyed it, and that you wouldn't take it back.

P.S.
I'm not a runner either, but I keep trying. :)

Pizza and brioche! At least it sounds like the calories were worth it!

mm definitely sounds worth it! thats not much of a gain at all for eating some of those heavier starches, so I would just call it a wash. I know next week will be much better for you.

Everyone needs a little treat and the brioche sounded wonderful! Wishing you a better week!

Always nice to hear from you! Well done for identifying the factors that caused your slight gain. I don't know whether I'll ever be a runner, but at 300+ pounds, it's not something I worry about quite yet.
