Thanks for the feedback
. I hadn't thought of taking measurements but think I might start this coming week, might cheer me up if my weight continues to plateau... First week of new running schedule is going really well. Did 4.2 miles Tuesday, 9.2 miles on Wednesday (my longest run yet, I ran the whole way, including a steep hill I had to walk part of on my 7 miler two weeks ago, and I felt great throughout
) and another 5.9 miles today. It was a gorgeous day, sunny with a cool breeze, and even though I was going easy and feeling no pain I finished under 56 minutes! I had serious doubts when my sister suggested I train for this race but now I am starting to feel more excited about it. Tomorrow is a rest day and then I hope to make three yoga classes and maybe
something short on the treadmill again this weekend. Steering clear of the scale until Monday's check-in and just trying to keep my focus on how strong and healthy I am feeling.
@kwzo Mmmm, cashews
. I gained quite a bit two winters ago eating nuts and dried fruit. It's been hard but I keep myself to a couple handful a week now.
Four lbs in one week is a lot, four lbs over two weeks: still a lot! Wouldn't worry too much about a single stagnant week. I wouldn't try too much to cut calories in these early months when your baby is getting all their nutrition from you, I'd just focus on eating the right things and being as active as possible.
Sorry to hear about your injuries, sending you vibes for a speedy recovery and some playing time this weekend!
