The Weigh-In Week 63

217.2! That's what it said on the scale this morning! A loss of 2 pounds.

I told you that 2 pound gain last week would be gone this week. Now I just have to keep the moment going again.

My 7 mile run on Sunday should help. Although, I have to tell you I am a little anxious about it. I'm still not feeling up to speed with running yet. (Pun Intended.)

I did 5 miles on the treadmill and barely made it to 4 miles before I had to take a short walk break.

7 Miles may hurt but I am determined to do it.

Our big winner this week is my dad with a guess of 1.8. I have to say with so many votes this week i am a little surprised that no one guessed 2lbs on the nose.

Enjoy the holiday weekend everybody.

Guess How Much I Weigh Contest - Week 63

It would seem that my attempts to ride my bike to work are cursed.

On Tuesday night Laura and I had a rare date night so she picked me up at work with the plan that I would ride my bike in Wed. morning.

Wed. morning we awoke to the sound of thunder and pouring rain. I contemplated calling a cab, but by the time I had to leave the rain seemed to have subsided.

I was wrong.

I had only gotten about 5 minutes from home when the skies opened up and drenched me with 15 minutes of hard stinging rain.

My one saving grace was going to be the fact that I had finally printed out a map of my rote to work so for once I wasn't going to get lost and I didn't.

Unfortunately I found my "perfect route" completely ripped up by construction so I had to make a detour once again.

And then.... about a half mile from work I got a flat tire on my bike! Talk about insulting injury. I walked it in, tired, soaked and dirty.

There is a very good chance that was my last attempt to ride to work this year.

The rest of the week has gone well. It looks like I am heading for a good loss this week.

Although it is turning out to be a little harder to get my running back on track. Tues. I did a short 2 mile run and I thought I was going to die. Hopefully today's 5 mile run goes a little better.

Step right up, step right up.
Guess how much I weigh and win a fabulous prize.

To Recap:
Every Thursday I give you my stats for the week and you guess what you think the scale will say on Friday morning. The winner is the first person who guesses my weight / weight loss for the week without going over or the person who is closest without going over. Go ahead and click on comments at the bottom of this post and leave your guess.

I will post the winner when I post my weight on Fri. morning. If we get ten or more guesses I will have a prize for the winner.

Let the guessing begin. Good Luck!
