What Do I Know?

I just ran for 10 minutes without stopping! I'm excited! I was out doing my run/walk and I had to go to the bathroom, so I decided to just try to run home. Lo and behold, it was a 10 minute run. I can't believe I did it! I think I'm moving onto Workout 2 of Week 5 now. Although, I don't think I am going to do Workout 3 (which is a 20 minute run). That's too crazy even for me at this point.

Some how I gained 1.4 pounds this past week. I'm not sure how ... I earned 24 activity points and had 16 flex points left over. But, I'm under my goal weight, so I know I shouldn't complain. I was actually worried I was going to lose more weight this week (I know, what a problem to have!), so if anything I am perplexed. I guess I still don't have this weight loss thing figured out yet after all!

I'm thinking of applying to be a WW receptionist. I don't think I want to be a leader. I'm too critical of their performance during meetings, and I don't think I could live up to the standard of the really good leaders I've seen, and I just don't think I have the knowledge base to be a good resource for people. But, I am starting to go stir-crazy. The community college here is looking for part-time marketing instructors, but I don't want to commit to anything for a full semester because I am hoping to have a job soon (fingers crossed!). I would feel terrible quitting in the middle of a semester and leaving the students hanging. It just feels different than quitting a job and giving 2 weeks notice.

Weight is weird, and I’m glad that you aren’t getting discouraged by it. Water has a tremendous influence. I’m sure your next weigh-in will reflect all the hard work you’re doing.

Hope you find the job soon.

Probably just a wt fluctation as it sounds like you have been on track. Maybe retaining water due to more running??
Good luck on the job hunt.

Oooooh! I think it'd be fun to be a WW receptionist! I'm with you on the community college thing. Just hold out for the right job, and do something fun along the way!

You are doing so great with the running!! :) YEAH!!! And I agree with the girls - don't fret about the scale. I think you're body is still trying to figure out what is going on. :)
