I got on the scale today for the first time in a long time – probably 3 or 4 months. I’ve been really nervous about gaining weight and going back to where I was 2 years ago. Maybe that fear is part of my drive to run – I’m not sure. Anyhow, I’ve been actively avoiding weighing in for a while but this morning my ‘need to know’ out weighed (no pun intended) my fear and I jumped on. The results were good! Here they are:
- Weight: 184.2
- body fat: 17%
- Body water: 57%
So, I have stayed the same weight for a while now – which is good. I would like to get back down to 170 or so before the marathon, but I’m sure that’ll come with my increased training and effort. I shouldn’t have to work too much to get the extra off. Also, I’d like to see my BF drop to 13% or 14% by the end of summer too – that would be a nice added bonus.
I’ll be checking my weight more regularly now, and posting my results here. I’m not so sure anyone is really interested, but it helps keep me honest.
