My Weight Loss Ticker!

A weekend post!

The last few days I have felt myself coming out of the "fog" and feeling more like myself - getting my joy back and getting back to normalcy. It is good to be back!

It was a good week for workouts, it was a good week for food!

Workouts - I worked out 4 out of 7 days this week - including my long run with Sacfit on Saturday (6 miles!). Sacfit was with a faster pace group than I used to run with and I will continue to run with them - as the pounds have dropped and I get more miles under my belt my speed has improved.

Food - Started the week at Bucca DiBeppo (holy bread consumption Batman!) but tracked everything the best I could and stayed 100% on track the rest of the week to make up for it!

Weigh In - I have been within my goal range since hitting goal, but have found myself creeping up past my comfort zone weight wise the last couple of weeks due to eating out more than I really should - so today I was weighed in down 1.8 pounds bringing me back down below my goal weight which I am very happy for!

Looking forward to next week - I'm just hoping to not get really sick - my body has been doing its best to fight off a cold that everyone seems to have had (including my younger son and hubby) one day my throat is sore then next day I'm fine, the next day it is sore again and my head hurts and the next day I'm fine again. I have been playing this game all week and today I'm going to rest and try to kick it to the curb once and for all!

Also since the topic of our meeting was "Loving yourself" - I feel I should share whatI did this week to love myself. I bought an Itunes gift card for myself so I can put more workout music on my Ipod and I made the time to get my workouts in no matter how hard it was. I also took some time to do something that I don't normally do - I made food! I made a No-Oil balsamic dressing from the Whole Foods website (very good!) and I also made some homemade energy bars for before/after my workouts. That may not sound like much to you, but those who know me well, knows that hubby does most of the cooking since he gets off work way earlier than I do, so for me to even go into the kitchen and prepare something (that isn't cake) is a huge step for me!

Sounds like a great week for you! I am going to attempt to make the energy bars today...I will let you know if I succeed. How are you storing yours?

So glad you've come out of your fog.

Notice that the fog is lifting and you're getting back in the groove and some weight is starting to fall off again.

You sound like you're in a great head space. Yaaa you!!!

Homemade energy bars are the best. There are so many yummy options. I'm considering doing a spirulina / oats / ground pecans / coconut oil / stevia blend. They will be green but tasty.
