Sluggish & Newness

Short post, have to head to bed... I'm working on starting a new blog, so will likely be transitioning this one to it. I'd like to have it up to chronicle our Ironman training "year". Keep your eyes peeled!

My husband is great. We've been together for a long time, and he's still my best friend. We have grown so much over the past year, and are both better people for it. We are building an amazing marriage and have an awesome life. Not much else to report, but it certainly says a lot.

Fat Loss

Good morning everyone :)

I woke up, hungry, as usual, for my bowl of cereal. These days it's a Fiber One Honey Clusters kick. Anyhow, a month ago I weighed 143 lbs, which is down from my heaviest of 154 lbs. This particular heavy, from a career yo-yo-er, came after, yes AFTER running my second marathon. Are you serious? Ok, enough self flagellation. Either way, I haven't binged in 2 months and I've been tracking my food for about a month on I make sure I get enough protein that way. But, I digress. I woke up this morning, got on the scale and was frustrated. I'm 138lbs. So, 5 lbs down in a month. Not bad, really, but it's been rather stagnant. So, I decide to do my bodyfat (with the Omron bioelectric impedance). It's down 4 lbs (to 26.6%bf). So, I'm down 2% bodyfat. My goal is less than 20, but first and foremost to be able to do the Ironman. So I do the next right thing. I halt my frustration about UNquick weight loss, be happy about good solid fat loss and have a bowl of Honey Clusters.
