So yay!! I got on the scale today and YEE-HAW I have lost 3 pounds!
I am a CHEATER
Ok, let me back up.
I got up this morning and there was a massive rainstorm – I’m talking torrential downpours and WIND.
This was the day to do a practice of sorts.
Next week, Marc and I are participating in a race for The Longest Day for Alzheimer’s awareness/fund raising.
There are a couple different races within the same event, so we decided to do our first duathlon. It will be a 5K run followed by a 25 mile bike ride.
I have never run and then immediately rode. So I headed down to our basement and loaded up the dreadmill. I ran for 10K and then hopped on the exercise bike for 10 miles.
Not the same as doing it outside and not the same distance but an approximation and a good workout.
It was cool in the basement, but humid and the small room we have our exercise equipment in got warm quick. So I was DRENCHED in sweat. I mean, it was pretty gross.
I immediately went upstairs when I was done and started the shower and it was then that I stepped on the scale.
So, yeah, it was probably all water weight that I “lost” and if I got on now it would be back to
but DAYUM – it was nice to see a drop! So I’m going to live in the delusion a little!
And hopefully I’ll do well in next weekend’s race!
