Luckily a friend let me borrow their car this morning, so I got to go to a quick swim session. I got 25 minutes in the pool and I used it to work on my form and speed. Hopefully my car will be up and running soon and I can catch up that part of my training.
I used my free time this weekend to start working on trail rides and runs. I have to say that the trails around here are loose soil and I nearly fell off my bike multiple times trying to cycle through them. My frustrations over my car, my loss of training, my finances and etc seemed to loom over that ride. I felt like every step I took led me to another stop, another failure, another false start. I started crying at some point. Anger over took me. I didn't allow it to stop me though. I refused to give up and kept going until I finished the short trail.

So I weighed myself this morning, unsure of what the number would be, since I ate more icing than I should have during that birthday party. The number made me incredibly happy and gave me even more hope to continue.
Current Weight: 212.8 lbs
I am 1.8 lbs away from re-reaching my 40 pound loss mark! That's huge, especially when you've been stuck in the late 2-teens for over a year. I'm hoping that by Valentine's day I'll have reached that mark again.
So, it was a frustrating week. But in the end it's turning out ok. Let's see what this week brings!
