At least that's one good thing I can post about. My last couple of runs were 5k each but today I went 8k for the first time. I feel great! I actually felt like I could have run longer but didn’t want to overdo it and when I stopped after the cool down I was glad I had as my legs were really feeling it! They still are.
Weight-wise I don't have much good to report, unfortunately. I am starting to think it's going to take me 5 months to get through the 70s just like it did the 80s. I just keep hovering between 77 and 79 kilos (about 170 to 175 lbs) for the last couple of months. I have been changing things up, including my intermittent fasting schedule, and I think I'm just going to have to tighten things up even further. I just can't bear the thought of not reaching goal! People tell me I have come so far and to appreciate what I have achieved ... and I do, don't get me wrong. But my goal is not unreasonable. It's 68 kilos or 150 pounds ... still overweight for my height. Surely this is not out of reach! So I will persevere my friends. I just feel like I haven't much interesting to post about while the weight stays stubbornly the same. But then I guess that's part of the journey, isn't it. That's real and honest and I'm hardly the only one who struggles with the last 20 pounds, am I?
The countdown to my trip home is truly under way. Three months will likely go by fast! Hope you all are having a great weekend.
