Today is my first day of an increase on the scale since I started counting calories. I hate that. I know it's dumb, but I still hate it. I started weighing myself daily when I was losing weight in 2007. It really helped me learn how different things affect me, and it taught me that it's completely normal for my weight to fluctuate up or down 3 pounds day to day depending on a variety of factors. Today's uptick is .4 pounds so I know I'm just being dumb if I let it get to me.
I did my deck of cards without weights workout this morning. The time was pretty much the same as last week. It felt good doing the workout. It gets me moving and stretching without being super hard. It's a good easy-day workout. Tomorrow is running again, and I can't wait for that. My first half marathon of the year is Saturday. I'm optimistic that I'll be able to finish. I think I need to let my plantar fasciitis decide on Saturday though. I had a dream last night that I finished then was on crutches flying back to Chicago Sunday because my foot was too swollen to walk on. So yeah, probably I need to listen to my body on Saturday.
Time for work for me, but I'll leave you with a lovely sunset picture of the view from my apartment last night just because it makes me happy and hopefully will do the same for you. Have a fantastic today!
