:D

I told myself I wasn't going to post again until I was in the 130s (140.5 both yesterday and this morning), but I'm feeling so fucking positive that I felt like I had to share some of that positivity. :)

Four out of the last five days, I've done some kind of hard exercise (2 days hiking, day off, 2 days at the gym). I can feel my upper body, particularly my back muscles, getting stronger. In a holy-crap-if-I-keep-this-up-I'll-actually-be-able-to-do-a-real-pull-up kind of way.

I ran today! For the first time in about three months. I only did a mile and a half, but whatever.
Tomorrow is upper body focus, but Friday I'll attempt two miles. Then 2.5, 3, etc. and see where I get.

The fat on my thighs is GONE.
Well.
My inner thighs have that annoying chub that keeps the thigh gap away, but my quads and hamstrings are back to pure muscle. I like the flex-and-punch method of determining how much fat is on a particular part of my body, haha. Flex the muscle group in question, slap/punch on one area, and see if there are fat waves. No ripple=all muscle.

Yesterday and today I've been eating SO WELL. 70ish grams of protein with under 1000 calories. All good food--lots of kale, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, and spinach.
I sometimes forget how good it feels to eat well.

I'm hoping I'll see a decrease on the scale tomorrow. I'm hoping for 138.5. Or 139. Something to make up for the maintenance today (which was a lot of sodium-driven water retention. I had like six pickle spears last night. Whoops). But as long as I don't see a gain, I think I'll be okay. I see a difference in the mirror, and I FEEL better. And smaller. And stronger.

Don't get me wrong--I still want 117. Eventually.
Right now I just feel happy and healthy. And that's a lot.

Much love.
