Well, I truly do not know what's going on with my scales; either they're teasing me this morning, or they well and truly stuck two fingers up at me yesterday, but according to them I'm between 3 and 4lbs lighter this morning (I stepped on twice as I didn't believe it the first time).
Whatever happened, this puts me in new lighter-than-ever territory which is pretty nice, so now I've just got to behave and keep it there!
Food was fine yesterday, and looking at the last couple of weeks, I seem to be settling into a fairly comfortable rhythm recently whereby I get everything I want and need, and I'm able to save points as I need to. Most days I'll earn some activity points, and I usually use 1 or 2 on the day, but bank the rest. This seems to work pretty well as it gives me a bit of wiggle room come the weekend.
Yesterday evening was spin class, followed by 12 mins jogging on the treadmill. When I run after spinning I just do what I feel comfortable with, with a min of 10 mins, since I've already done something pretty intense. Last night I felt pretty strong hence the couple of extra minutes, and I also knocked my pace up my an increment in the last 5 mins. Increments on our treadmills are only 0.1 kph, so it's pretty small, but I figure a little bit here and there will increase my pace in the long run, and I know I could have gone significantly longer had I chosen to - I stopped because I felt satisfied with what I'd done.
I had on a funky new workout top last night (bright, bright emerald green - I guess I'm not exactly the shy and retiring type) and my instructor, Tim, commented on it when I hopped on my bike at the start of the class. It's nice that I feel confident enough these days that I take that as a compliment, or at the very least a neutral comment, and don't just feel like there's something wrong with it or I'm being laughed at. When we split into teams to race off, I was captaining my side of the class, so Tim obviously nicknamed us the "mean, green racing machines" - in his face, because we won, courtesy of yours truly going head to head in a captains race off because the teams were tied. Me, competitive??? Oh HELL yeah!
So that was yesterday, today's going well, although I don't quite know what my plans are for tonight. No exercise though, I think, as I've got about 3 million things I need to do, including popping round to see my dad and doing a food shop, and was also supposed to be seeing the girls too - I think Dad should come first for a change though as I have been a terrible daughter of late!
