And then the rain

I missed my weigh in yesterday morning as I was rushing around but, as of this morning I have managed a drop of 1.5lbs taking me back to 16.8 which was my pre-Christmas low.  It was a bit of a weird week with my weight ping-ponging around 2 down, 3 up, 4 down etc but I felt that the overall direction of travel was downwards and so it proved.

I'm pleased that I managed to log my calorie intake fairly accurately every day even when I had "bad" days as this sort of accountability tends to help me in the long run.  It allows me to ,look back and see where I go wrong.  This week too many "treat" days. 3 instead of 1.  None of the 3 days were hideously ruinous which is why I managed to drop some lard but there were 3 of them!  Tut tut.

I was pleased with the exercise last week.  It was great to get out running after feeling poorly the week before.  I tried a different route on Sunday morning too.  It was rainy and muddy so Rich said he would take the dogs out later allowing me to go for a non-dog run. I couldn't face the fields so stuck to the back roads - 5.5km over a big hill.  It was remarkably refreshing.  I felt like a proper runner and thoroughly enjoyed it.

It wasn't pretty as you can see from these gloomy pictures of murk.

That's a lot of water!!

In other news, I have joined the village panto and have now been to 2 rehearsals.  I have discovered that I'm going to be a seaman, a villager and the front end of a camel.  I have learned a dance routine to "In the navy" and stood in for missing cast members in rehearsals.  It has been great fun so far but I have a LOT to learn.  Eeek.

Yay well done you! A good result.

Oh, but the panto - wish I could be there to see it. I am sure that you will be FANTASTIC!
