Sunday weigh in and a yucky run

Todays weigh in went as expected. 170.8 which means I lost one pound. Not surprised at all. I did AWESOME the first 3 days, bad day 4, so so day 5 and 6 and said fuck it day 7. So any loss I will take. Learn from this week and make better choices for the week to come.

I need to get moving on my training. I have been slacking big time. So this morning I set my alarm and got outside by 6am for a planned 5 mile run. I chose 6 am for two reasons. First it would be cooler. Second, my kids tend to wake up at 8ish so I could run, cool off, shower and have some down time before they wake up. HAHAHAHA. Yea right. First it was ridiculously humid this morning - felt like I was running through soup. Yuck. And secondly.... of course my baby girl was already talking in her crib when I got up this morning and was a screaming mess since when I got back from my run. Yippee.

And it was one of those runs that I cursed the first mile and then started playing games with myself on how far I was going to run. I hate when I do that. I ended at 4 miles today. Im happy its done.

And of course my boy is still sleeping and by the time he gets up Bre will be cranky and ready to go down. We have a busy day today - hubby wants to go out to breakfast (thank god my points restart today), visit his parents and we have a baseball game as a family to go to tonight.


  1. I had a crappy run today too...I had my mind all wrong, griping about the heat & humidity before I had even started :-( ugh! Good job on the weight loss...loss is a loss, so good job!

  2. Healthy weight loss calls for healthy weight loss strategies. This means that you need to stay away from unhealthy strategies such as taking quick weight loss diets. Healthy weight loss strategies that you should engage in are exercising and eating healthy diet. When exercising, you should engage in both cardio and muscle training exercises. Some of the cardio exercises you should engage in include swimming, walking, jogging, and biking. You can enroll in a gym or you can exercise at home. When it comes to dieting, you should take healthy foods such as fish, lean meat, fruits, vegetables, and whole cereals. Experts also recommend that you take plenty of water to increase the rate of metabolism.

  3. In order to keep great shape you have to develop healthy eating habits. I’ve read somewhere that even if you attend gym every day but keep eating junk food – you are wasting your time. Lots of useful advices on proper nutrition I have found here They provide special tips for women and lots of motivative ideas!
