Results. Once more, I felt skinny all week. My wedding ring stayed loose which is a first: I’ve never had two “loose ring” weeks in a row. =D
I ate well, ran 17+ miles, and exercised well. Another fantastic week. How’d it all work out? May I have a drumroll, please? . . .

As I said last week, much of my previous loss was “water weight” and it was difficult to keep it from coming back. A solid week of eating well and exercising did the trick and I managed to make June my best month in a damn long time: four straight weeks of fat loss, down 4.7 pounds and 1.1% bodyfat.
Those aren’t great numbers for someone just starting out, but for me (six months into the program), I think they are great and I’ll take all the encouragement I can from them. =)
I ran my long weekend route this morning. Stats for today:
- Distance: 8.27 mi
- Duration: 1:44:39
- Average Pace: 12:39 / mi
- Average Speed: 4.74 mph
- Calories Burned: 1285
- Elevation Climb: 483 ft
What a great morning! The weather was perfect. I was well rested and felt good. I enjoyed the Sacrament of Coffee** three miles into my run. Wonderful! =)
Plus I set a new personal record for the most miles jogged in a month today (68.6***) and I still have until Thursday to add to that. I will try to run at least three times between now and then, seeing if I can get my total up to about 80 for the month.
I’ll let you know how it worked out come Thursday.
