Never been so happy with a <1 lb loss week

Last week I was over the moon with another good loss for the week.  On that same day, I found out that my great uncle had passed away and I hastily made plans to attend the funeral over the weekend.  It was a 5 hour each way drive, and I was doing the drive on little sleep which meant:  sugar and calories galore.

Of course, with funerals comes food.  I tried to be good, but it was hard to stay on my diet.  One thing I really hate about having weigh ins on Wednesdays is that you have very little time to recover from the weekend if you go off plan.  When I arrived back in town on Sunday evening, I weighed in just to see how bad I had been.  I was at 218, up 4.6 from the previous Wednesday’s weigh in.  I had a run on Monday and then decided to add one on Tuesday as well.  On today’s run, I was extra good and added 5 more minutes to my run time, making it a 30 minute day.  I have been very on plan with my diet, and I was able to get the scale down 5.4 lbs from Sunday night.  Not too bad.  I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to lose less than a pound in a week.
