    No, no, you need a glass of cabernet. You ROCKED that track workout! Way to go. Now pour yourself a glass and breathe deep. πŸ™‚

    Track workouts have always seemed so daunting! I’ve never done one before, so I think I’d need other people with me to push me along. I’m in love with treadmill speed workouts, but do you think that track speed workouts are better??

    I hope your cramps go away soon, and I’m sure some rest and something warm near the cramp will help!

    I haven’t been on a scale in 6 months, and I like it this way πŸ˜‰ Needless to say, I’m a little scared of that number monster! I know I’m more than that number, and I know you are too πŸ˜€

      Track workouts are 10 times mores challenging than treadmill speed workouts. I like them better for that reason, however when I’m actually running them – not such a fan. It helps to do them with a group pushing you along the way!

    Awesome workout! The hardest part of track workouts, for me, is getting the courage to do them! Even if you’re in top marathon shape, getting that speed and turnover in your legs is so hard! I just returned to the track this week too and got whooped…

    I’d actually love to read your scale post! Love reading others honest accounts on issues like weight and scales that just about everyone struggles with. Hope you choose to publish!

    Just remember…the scale is just a number. It has no bearing on your worth as a person, your abilities as an athlete, etc.

    I think you should publish the post. I think anyone, myself included, having been through a weight loss journey can relate to the fear or anxiety about the scale. I’ve been struggling with this topic for awhile.

    I hear you about a bad run in with the scale, I’m sure we’ve all had those. You look great though and are obviously in good shape if you can do a track workout like that! So don’t worry about what the scale says! πŸ™‚

    I also would love for you to publish the scale post. I had my own run in with it this week. Somehow I put on close to ten pounds. I’m ok with it though. I know that getting back to a healthier lifestyle feels good and that the scale only helps keep things in check. It’s nice to know I’m not alone.

    Sorry about the cramps — that is no fun!

    The first track workout back is always the hardest!! AND meeting with a new group is scary too, but you did great and sounds like you found a great group to run with! I think track workouts with people are the best way to go πŸ™‚

    Please post the scale post! I’m guessing you’re having the same issue I am…..it’s not at a number I want it to be! I had a 2 week vacation and gained 3 lbs during that time, and the number on the scale is really downing me, even though I know it “doesn’t matter’. But I spent a week doing really well with eating and exercise, guess the scale would say I was about a pound down….and I had GAINED a pound. It was devestating! Which sounds so ridiculous, bc it’s a pound…..Ik am totally stressing about it, but I know I shouldn’t be!

    I would really like to see scale post, too. I definitely struggle with the numbers fluctuating on the scale more than I should. By the way, you look awesome, and please know that you are a huge inspiration for me and many other people. Thanks for such a wonderful blog!!! πŸ™‚

    I was told your weight could go up by up to 5lbs right before your monthly visitor arrives. That could be it.

    The scale number means NADA! Don’t believe that crap about numbers telling you your worth! Besides, you just ROCKED the track, and being fit is WAY more important than a digital number or store number πŸ˜‰

    I feel strongly about this! ha! But you are also in a moment of the month where everything seems kinda out of whack, so don’t let it get you down! Sleep tight!

    I think the fact that you rocked your track work out should erase any not so fun scale encounters. πŸ™‚

    Is it possible that the scale incident is due to having a more regular period now?

    Please don’t let the number on the scale get you down. From the photographs you post on your blog you look great and since leaving your job,moving in with Derek and not training so much you have seemed so much happier.

    Great workout! πŸ™‚ I’ve never tried Amy’s burritos but I might have to after seeing your dinner! It looks really good! πŸ™‚

    Don’t let the scale ruin things for you, Meghann. You are such a beautiful person. πŸ™‚ Don’t live your life by a number. I know it’s easier said than done but look at everything that is positive in your life. πŸ™‚

    I would love to read your scale post, but I understand why you wouldn’t want to publish it. There are some readers out there on the prowl, and they seem to jump at any chance to attacks you guys (you guys=honest bloggers). It must be frustrating at times to toe the line between honest/open and too vulnerable.
    Whatever you choose, I support you!

    Congrats on the track workout! You rock!

    And don’t worry about the scale. It’s just a number and it only reflects one thing. It’s one rather unimportant thing too. That said, I wouldn’t hesitate to publish your post about it. We’ve all been there and can certainly empathize with you.

    Great job on the track workout πŸ˜€ I feel the opposite about treadmill speed, though-it actually pushes me harder because i HAVE to maintain a certain speed for 400s or 800s.

    Looking forward to reading the scale post, but I understand if you dont post-I give you kudos for admitting your vulnerability with the scale (I wish I could thorw mine out :-p) Just a thought…is it possible that your lifting weights has just made you so jacked that its all muscle ? Thats what Id go with πŸ˜€

      I find the track mentally challenging over the treadmill. And the thought about muscles crossed my mind too, but it’s more than the scale and those are the details I didn’t go into.
