I finally gave in and went to the doctor today. Thankfully I don't have the flu - but I DO have a very nasty virus that has been going around. The doctor seemed to think I was at the end of it and that I should be feeling more like myself in a few days. He told me to go home and go to bed and to stay there for two days. HAHAHAHA He is so funny! I do plan on heading to bed early tonight though. Tomorrow is a busy day, so I had better get some rest!
I'm happy to announce that I have figured out the time discrepancy between my polar and the race! I noticed that my race day showed two splits - one was five minutes!!!! When I think back I remembered setting my foot pod to see if it was working. I must have accidentally started the clock - and when it beeped that my foot pod wasn't registering movement I must have stopped it - that was about 5 minutes! The time for the second split was about ten seconds slower than the race time. I remember at the race thinking that I had to run all the way back to the start line - they didn't have a finish line. They had the sound booth set up about ten seconds before the finish line. So there you go! I really DID run my 5k in 43 minutes!!! I can't wait to see what my next race time is!
I'm still feeling kind of crummy. I have a feeling this cold is going to turn into a sinus infection - I am really prone to them. My teeth are starting to hurt and that is usually the sign of an impending sinus infection. JOY. Oh well - I can still run with a sinus infection - it's this terrible chest congestion that makes running a bad idea. I think I am going to run tomorrow though. I've already lost a week and it kind of pisses me off. What can you do though - viruses abound!
On a REALLY great note... I had my weight watcher's weigh in today. I didn't really want to go - but I have not missed a single weigh in for the past 10 weeks and I wasn't about to do it now. I was ready to hear that I had gained 3 lbs but I DIDN'T! I actually lost a little less than one pound - but it was enough to put me over the 25lb mark at weight watcher's! I got my little 25lb charm! That is so cool! 3 more pounds until I hit my 20% mark! I can't wait to look the way I feel! So what are some non scale changes that I have noticed so far?
1. My knees don't hurt anymore when I get out of the chair!
2. When I woke up this morning my PJ pants had fallen off! How does that even happen? They have really gotten loose!
3. My blood sugars have been AMAZING! I have only had 2 or 3 blood sugars in the pre diabetes range in the past two months! I'm hesitant to check off that goal on my 38 in 38 - but once my doctor agrees - then I will check it off!
4. My son asked me how many points was in his fruit snacks. LOL
5. I bought my Easter shirt in a size 2x!!! HOT DAMN!
Ok - now I'm off to my hot tea and then bed! Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful night! -Monica
